C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceInheritedViewportScissorFeaturesNV structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_NV_inherited_viewport_scissor
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceInheritedViewportScissorFeaturesNV {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           inheritedViewportScissor2D;
} VkPhysicalDeviceInheritedViewportScissorFeaturesNV;


This structure describes the following feature:


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • inheritedViewportScissor2D indicates whether secondary command buffers can inherit most of the dynamic state affected by VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_VIEWPORT_WITH_COUNT, VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_SCISSOR_WITH_COUNT, VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_DISCARD_RECTANGLE_EXT, VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_VIEWPORT or VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_SCISSOR, from a primary command buffer.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceInheritedViewportScissorFeaturesNV structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled in to indicate whether each corresponding feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceInheritedViewportScissorFeaturesNV can also be used in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to selectively enable these features.

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