C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceIndexTypeUint8FeaturesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_index_type_uint8
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceIndexTypeUint8FeaturesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           indexTypeUint8;
} VkPhysicalDeviceIndexTypeUint8FeaturesEXT;


This structure describes the following feature:


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • indexTypeUint8 indicates that VK_INDEX_TYPE_UINT8_EXT can be used with vkCmdBindIndexBuffer.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceIndexTypeUint8FeaturesEXT structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled in to indicate whether each corresponding feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceIndexTypeUint8FeaturesEXT can also be used in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to selectively enable these features.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceIndexTypeUint8FeaturesEXT-sType-sType
