C Specification

To create a buffer view, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
VkResult vkCreateBufferView(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkBufferViewCreateInfo*               pCreateInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkBufferView*                               pView);


  • device is the logical device that creates the buffer view.

  • pCreateInfo is a pointer to a VkBufferViewCreateInfo structure containing parameters to be used to create the buffer.

  • pAllocator controls host memory allocation as described in the Memory Allocation chapter.

  • pView is a pointer to a VkBufferView handle in which the resulting buffer view object is returned.
