C Specification

To create a private data slot, call:

// Provided by VK_EXT_private_data
VkResult vkCreatePrivateDataSlotEXT(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkPrivateDataSlotCreateInfoEXT*       pCreateInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkPrivateDataSlotEXT*                       pPrivateDataSlot);


  • device is the logical device associated with the creation of the object(s) holding the private data slot.

  • pCreateInfo is a pointer to a VkPrivateDataSlotCreateInfoEXT

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

  • pPrivateDataSlot is a pointer to a VkPrivateDataSlotEXT handle in which the resulting private data slot is returned
