C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceDiscardRectanglePropertiesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_discard_rectangles
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceDiscardRectanglePropertiesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    uint32_t           maxDiscardRectangles;
} VkPhysicalDeviceDiscardRectanglePropertiesEXT;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • maxDiscardRectangles is the maximum number of active discard rectangles that can be specified.


If the VkPhysicalDeviceDiscardRectanglePropertiesEXT structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceProperties2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties2, it is filled in with each corresponding implementation-dependent property.

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