C Specification

The VkCommandBufferSubmitInfo structure is defined as:

typedef struct VkCommandBufferSubmitInfo {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkCommandBuffer    commandBuffer;
    uint32_t           deviceMask;
} VkCommandBufferSubmitInfo;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_synchronization2
typedef VkCommandBufferSubmitInfo VkCommandBufferSubmitInfoKHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • commandBuffer is a VkCommandBuffer to be submitted for execution.

  • deviceMask is a bitmask indicating which devices in a device group execute the command buffer. A deviceMask of 0 is equivalent to setting all bits corresponding to valid devices in the group to 1.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkCommandBufferSubmitInfo-commandBuffer-03890
    commandBuffer must not have been allocated with VK_COMMAND_BUFFER_LEVEL_SECONDARY

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferSubmitInfo-deviceMask-03891
    If deviceMask is not 0, it must be a valid device mask

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

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferSubmitInfo-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferSubmitInfo-commandBuffer-parameter
    commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle
