C Specification

The XrCompositionLayerCubeKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by XR_KHR_composition_layer_cube
typedef struct XrCompositionLayerCubeKHR {
    XrStructureType            type;
    const void*                next;
    XrCompositionLayerFlags    layerFlags;
    XrSpace                    space;
    XrEyeVisibility            eyeVisibility;
    XrSwapchain                swapchain;
    uint32_t                   imageArrayIndex;
    XrQuaternionf              orientation;
} XrCompositionLayerCubeKHR;


Member Descriptions
  • type is the XrStructureType of this structure.

  • next is NULL or a pointer to the next structure in a structure chain. No such structures are defined in core OpenXR or this extension.

  • layerFlags is any flags to apply to this layer.

  • space is the XrSpace in which the orientation of the cube layer is evaluated over time.

  • eye is the eye represented by this layer.

  • swapchain is the swapchain, which must have been created with a faceCount of 6.

  • imageArrayIndex is the image array index, with 0 meaning the first or only array element.

  • orientation is the orientation of the environment map in the space.


XrCompositionLayerCubeKHR contains the information needed to render a cube map when calling xrEndFrame. XrCompositionLayerCubeKHR is an alias type for the base struct XrCompositionLayerBaseHeader used in XrFrameEndInfo.
