C Specification

VkBindImageMemoryInfo contains members corresponding to the parameters of vkBindImageMemory.

The VkBindImageMemoryInfo structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef struct VkBindImageMemoryInfo {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkImage            image;
    VkDeviceMemory     memory;
    VkDeviceSize       memoryOffset;
} VkBindImageMemoryInfo;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_bind_memory2
typedef VkBindImageMemoryInfo VkBindImageMemoryInfoKHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • image is the image to be attached to memory.

  • memory is a VkDeviceMemory object describing the device memory to attach.

  • memoryOffset is the start offset of the region of memory which is to be bound to the image. The number of bytes returned in the VkMemoryRequirements::size member in memory, starting from memoryOffset bytes, will be bound to the specified image.


Valid Usage
Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkBindImageMemoryInfo-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkBindImageMemoryInfo-pNext-pNext
    Each pNext member of any structure (including this one) in the pNext chain must be either NULL or a pointer to a valid instance of VkBindImageMemoryDeviceGroupInfo, VkBindImageMemorySwapchainInfoKHR, VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfo, or VkBindMemoryStatusKHR

  • VUID-VkBindImageMemoryInfo-sType-unique
    The sType value of each struct in the pNext chain must be unique

  • VUID-VkBindImageMemoryInfo-image-parameter
    image must be a valid VkImage handle

  • VUID-VkBindImageMemoryInfo-commonparent
    Both of image, and memory that are valid handles of non-ignored parameters must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from the same VkDevice
