C Specification

To retrieve a handle to a VkQueue object with specific VkDeviceQueueCreateFlags creation flags, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
void vkGetDeviceQueue2(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkDeviceQueueInfo2*                   pQueueInfo,
    VkQueue*                                    pQueue);


  • device is the logical device that owns the queue.

  • pQueueInfo is a pointer to a VkDeviceQueueInfo2 structure, describing parameters of the device queue to be retrieved.

  • pQueue is a pointer to a VkQueue object that will be filled with the handle for the requested queue.

  • VUID-vkGetDeviceQueue2-device-parameter
    device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • VUID-vkGetDeviceQueue2-pQueueInfo-parameter
    pQueueInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkDeviceQueueInfo2 structure

  • VUID-vkGetDeviceQueue2-pQueue-parameter
