C Specification

Each vertex input binding is specified by the VkVertexInputBindingDescription structure, defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
typedef struct VkVertexInputBindingDescription {
    uint32_t             binding;
    uint32_t             stride;
    VkVertexInputRate    inputRate;
} VkVertexInputBindingDescription;


  • binding is the binding number that this structure describes.

  • stride is the byte stride between consecutive elements within the buffer.

  • inputRate is a VkVertexInputRate value specifying whether vertex attribute addressing is a function of the vertex index or of the instance index.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkVertexInputBindingDescription-binding-00618
    binding must be less than VkPhysicalDeviceLimits::maxVertexInputBindings

  • VUID-VkVertexInputBindingDescription-stride-00619
    stride must be less than or equal to VkPhysicalDeviceLimits::maxVertexInputBindingStride

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkVertexInputBindingDescription-inputRate-parameter
    inputRate must be a valid VkVertexInputRate value
