C Specification

If the bound graphics pipeline state was created with the VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_FRONT_FACE_EXT dynamic state enabled then the front face property is set dynamically by calling:

// Provided by VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state
void vkCmdSetFrontFaceEXT(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    VkFrontFace                                 frontFace);


  • commandBuffer is the command buffer into which the command will be recorded.

  • frontFace specifies the front face property to use for drawing.


Valid Usage
Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkCmdSetFrontFaceEXT-commandBuffer-parameter
    commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • VUID-vkCmdSetFrontFaceEXT-frontFace-parameter
    frontFace must be a valid VkFrontFace value

  • VUID-vkCmdSetFrontFaceEXT-commandBuffer-recording
    commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • VUID-vkCmdSetFrontFaceEXT-commandBuffer-cmdpool
    The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support graphics operations

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to commandBuffer must be externally synchronized

  • Host access to the VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must be externally synchronized
