C Specification

To destroy a sampler, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
void vkDestroySampler(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkSampler                                   sampler,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator);


  • device is the logical device that destroys the sampler.

  • sampler is the sampler to destroy.

  • pAllocator controls host memory allocation as described in the Memory Allocation chapter.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkDestroySampler-sampler-01082
    All submitted commands that refer to sampler must have completed execution

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkDestroySampler-device-parameter
    device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • VUID-vkDestroySampler-sampler-parameter
    If sampler is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, sampler must be a valid VkSampler handle

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

  • VUID-vkDestroySampler-sampler-parent
    If sampler is a valid handle, it must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from device

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to sampler must be externally synchronized
