C Specification

The VkDrawIndirectCommand structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
typedef struct VkDrawIndirectCommand {
    uint32_t    vertexCount;
    uint32_t    instanceCount;
    uint32_t    firstVertex;
    uint32_t    firstInstance;
} VkDrawIndirectCommand;


  • vertexCount is the number of vertices to draw.

  • instanceCount is the number of instances to draw.

  • firstVertex is the index of the first vertex to draw.

  • firstInstance is the instance ID of the first instance to draw.


The members of VkDrawIndirectCommand have the same meaning as the similarly named parameters of vkCmdDraw.
