C Specification

To create a VkSurfaceKHR object for a macOS NSView, call:

VkResult vkCreateMacOSSurfaceMVK(
    VkInstance                                  instance,
    const VkMacOSSurfaceCreateInfoMVK*          pCreateInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkSurfaceKHR*                               pSurface);

Parameters

  • instance is the instance with which to associate the surface.

  • pCreateInfo is a pointer to a VkMacOSSurfaceCreateInfoMVK structure containing parameters affecting the creation of the surface object.

  • pAllocator is the allocator used for host memory allocated for the surface object when there is no more specific allocator available (see Memory Allocation).

  • pSurface is a pointer to a VkSurfaceKHR handle in which the created surface object is returned.
