C Specification

To destroy an event, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
void vkDestroyEvent(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkEvent                                     event,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator);


  • device is the logical device that destroys the event.

  • event is the handle of the event to destroy.
