To create a
VkSurfaceKHR object for an X11 window, using the Xlib
client-side library, call:
VkResult vkCreateXlibSurfaceKHR( VkInstance instance, const VkXlibSurfaceCreateInfoKHR* pCreateInfo, const VkAllocationCallbacks* pAllocator, VkSurfaceKHR* pSurface);
instanceis the instance to associate the surface with.
pCreateInfois a pointer to a
VkXlibSurfaceCreateInfoKHRstructure containing the parameters affecting the creation of the surface object.
pAllocatoris the allocator used for host memory allocated for the surface object when there is no more specific allocator available (see Memory Allocation).
pSurfaceis a pointer to a VkSurfaceKHR handle in which the created surface object is returned.
