C Specification

The VkCommandBufferAllocateInfo structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
typedef struct VkCommandBufferAllocateInfo {
    VkStructureType         sType;
    const void*             pNext;
    VkCommandPool           commandPool;
    VkCommandBufferLevel    level;
    uint32_t                commandBufferCount;
} VkCommandBufferAllocateInfo;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • commandPool is the command pool from which the command buffers are allocated.

  • level is a VkCommandBufferLevel value specifying the command buffer level.

  • commandBufferCount is the number of command buffers to allocate from the pool.


Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkCommandBufferAllocateInfo-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferAllocateInfo-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferAllocateInfo-commandPool-parameter
    commandPool must be a valid VkCommandPool handle

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferAllocateInfo-level-parameter
    level must be a valid VkCommandBufferLevel value
