C Specification

To create a fence that will be signaled when an event occurs on a device, call:

// Provided by VK_EXT_display_control
VkResult vkRegisterDeviceEventEXT(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkDeviceEventInfoEXT*                 pDeviceEventInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkFence*                                    pFence);


  • device is a logical device on which the event may occur.

  • pDeviceEventInfo is a pointer to a VkDeviceEventInfoEXT structure describing the event of interest to the application.

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

  • pFence is a pointer to a handle in which the resulting fence object is returned.
