C Specification

Information about support for the descriptor set layout is returned in a VkDescriptorSetLayoutSupport structure:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef struct VkDescriptorSetLayoutSupport {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           supported;
} VkDescriptorSetLayoutSupport;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • supported specifies whether the descriptor set layout can be created.


supported is set to VK_TRUE if the descriptor set can be created, or else is set to VK_FALSE.

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

  • VUID-VkDescriptorSetLayoutSupport-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL or a pointer to a valid instance of VkDescriptorSetVariableDescriptorCountLayoutSupport

  • VUID-VkDescriptorSetLayoutSupport-sType-unique
    The sType value of each struct in the pNext chain must be unique
