C Specification

To destroy a pipeline layout, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
void vkDestroyPipelineLayout(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkPipelineLayout                            pipelineLayout,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator);


  • device is the logical device that destroys the pipeline layout.

  • pipelineLayout is the pipeline layout to destroy.

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


Valid Usage
  • If VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when pipelineLayout was created, a compatible set of callbacks must be provided here

  • If no VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when pipelineLayout was created, pAllocator must be NULL

  • pipelineLayout must not have been passed to any vkCmd* command for any command buffers that are still in the recording state when vkDestroyPipelineLayout is called

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • If pipelineLayout is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, pipelineLayout must be a valid VkPipelineLayout handle

  • If pAllocator is not NULL, pAllocator must be a valid pointer to a valid VkAllocationCallbacks structure

  • If pipelineLayout is a valid handle, it must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from device

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to pipelineLayout must be externally synchronized
