C Specification

If the pNext chain of VkImageCreateInfo includes a VkImageSwapchainCreateInfoKHR structure, then that structure includes a swapchain handle indicating that the image will be bound to memory from that swapchain.

The VkImageSwapchainCreateInfoKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1 with VK_KHR_swapchain
typedef struct VkImageSwapchainCreateInfoKHR {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkSwapchainKHR     swapchain;
} VkImageSwapchainCreateInfoKHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • swapchain is VK_NULL_HANDLE or a handle of a swapchain that the image will be bound to.


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

  • VUID-VkImageSwapchainCreateInfoKHR-swapchain-parameter
    If swapchain is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, swapchain must be a valid VkSwapchainKHR handle
