C Specification

Debug report callbacks give more detailed feedback on the application’s use of Vulkan when events of interest occur.

To register a debug report callback, an application uses vkCreateDebugReportCallbackEXT.

VkResult vkCreateDebugReportCallbackEXT(
    VkInstance                                  instance,
    const VkDebugReportCallbackCreateInfoEXT*   pCreateInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkDebugReportCallbackEXT*                   pCallback);


  • instance the instance the callback will be logged on.

  • pCreateInfo is a pointer to a VkDebugReportCallbackCreateInfoEXT structure defining the conditions under which this callback will be called.

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

  • pCallback is a pointer to a VkDebugReportCallbackEXT handle in which the created object is returned.
