C Specification

Additional modes may also be created by calling:

// Provided by VK_KHR_display
VkResult vkCreateDisplayModeKHR(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    VkDisplayKHR                                display,
    const VkDisplayModeCreateInfoKHR*           pCreateInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkDisplayModeKHR*                           pMode);


  • physicalDevice is the physical device associated with display.

  • display is the display to create an additional mode for.

  • pCreateInfo is a pointer to a VkDisplayModeCreateInfoKHR structure describing the new mode to create.

  • pAllocator is the allocator used for host memory allocated for the display mode object when there is no more specific allocator available (see Memory Allocation).

  • pMode is a pointer to a VkDisplayModeKHR handle in which the mode created is returned.


If VkPhysicalDeviceVulkanSC10Properties::deviceNoDynamicHostAllocations is VK_TRUE, vkCreateDisplayModeKHR must not return VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkCreateDisplayModeKHR-physicalDevice-parameter
    physicalDevice must be a valid VkPhysicalDevice handle

  • VUID-vkCreateDisplayModeKHR-display-parameter
    display must be a valid VkDisplayKHR handle

  • VUID-vkCreateDisplayModeKHR-pCreateInfo-parameter
    pCreateInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkDisplayModeCreateInfoKHR structure

  • VUID-vkCreateDisplayModeKHR-pAllocator-null
    pAllocator must be NULL

  • VUID-vkCreateDisplayModeKHR-pMode-parameter
    pMode must be a valid pointer to a VkDisplayModeKHR handle

  • VUID-vkCreateDisplayModeKHR-display-parent
    display must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from physicalDevice

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to display must be externally synchronized

Return Codes
On success, this command returns

On failure, this command returns
