To obtain the array of presentable images associated with a swapchain, call:
// Provided by VK_KHR_swapchain VkResult vkGetSwapchainImagesKHR( VkDevice device, VkSwapchainKHR swapchain, uint32_t* pSwapchainImageCount, VkImage* pSwapchainImages);
deviceis the device associated with
swapchainis the swapchain to query.
pSwapchainImageCountis a pointer to an integer related to the number of presentable images available or queried, as described below.
NULLor a pointer to an array of
NULL, then the number of presentable images
swapchain is returned in
pSwapchainImageCount must point to a variable set by the
user to the number of elements in the
pSwapchainImages array, and on
return the variable is overwritten with the number of structures actually
If the value of
pSwapchainImageCount is less than the number of
presentable images for
swapchain, at most
structures will be written, and
VK_INCOMPLETE will be returned instead
VK_SUCCESS, to indicate that not all the available presentable
images were returned.
