To enumerate device layers, call:
// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0 VkResult vkEnumerateDeviceLayerProperties( VkPhysicalDevice physicalDevice, uint32_t* pPropertyCount, VkLayerProperties* pProperties);
pPropertyCountis a pointer to an integer related to the number of layer properties available or queried.
NULLor a pointer to an array of VkLayerProperties structures.
NULL, then the number of layer properties
available is returned in
pPropertyCount must point to a variable set by the user to
the number of elements in the
pProperties array, and on return the
variable is overwritten with the number of structures actually written to
pPropertyCount is less than the number of layer properties
available, at most
pPropertyCount structures will be written.
pPropertyCount is smaller than the number of layers available,
VK_INCOMPLETE will be returned instead of
indicate that not all the available layer properties were returned.
The list of layers enumerated by
must be exactly the sequence of layers enabled for the instance.
The members of
VkLayerProperties for each enumerated layer must be
the same as the properties when the layer was enumerated by
