C Specification

To complete recording of a command buffer, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
VkResult vkEndCommandBuffer(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer);

Parameters

  • commandBuffer is the command buffer to complete recording.

Description

If there was an error during recording, the application will be notified by an unsuccessful return code returned by vkEndCommandBuffer. If the application wishes to further use the command buffer, the command buffer must be reset. The command buffer must have been in the recording state, and is moved to the executable state.

Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkEndCommandBuffer-commandBuffer-00059
    commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • VUID-vkEndCommandBuffer-commandBuffer-00060
    If commandBuffer is a primary command buffer, there must not be an active render pass instance

  • VUID-vkEndCommandBuffer-commandBuffer-00061
    All queries made active during the recording of commandBuffer must have been made inactive

  • VUID-vkEndCommandBuffer-None-01978
    Conditional rendering must not be active

  • VUID-vkEndCommandBuffer-commandBuffer-01815
    If commandBuffer is a secondary command buffer, there must not be an outstanding vkCmdBeginDebugUtilsLabelEXT command recorded to commandBuffer that has not previously been ended by a call to vkCmdEndDebugUtilsLabelEXT

  • VUID-vkEndCommandBuffer-commandBuffer-00062
    If commandBuffer is a secondary command buffer, there must not be an outstanding vkCmdDebugMarkerBeginEXT command recorded to commandBuffer that has not previously been ended by a call to vkCmdDebugMarkerEndEXT

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkEndCommandBuffer-commandBuffer-parameter
    commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to commandBuffer must be externally synchronized

  • Host access to the VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must be externally synchronized

Return Codes
On success, this command returns
  • VK_SUCCESS

On failure, this command returns
  • VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY

  • VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_DEVICE_MEMORY
