C Specification

The VkBufferUsageFlags2CreateInfoKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_maintenance5
typedef struct VkBufferUsageFlags2CreateInfoKHR {
    VkStructureType           sType;
    const void*               pNext;
    VkBufferUsageFlags2KHR    usage;
} VkBufferUsageFlags2CreateInfoKHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • usage is a bitmask of VkBufferUsageFlagBits2KHR specifying allowed usages of the buffer.


If this structure is included in the pNext chain of a buffer creation structure, usage is used instead of the corresponding usage value passed in that creation structure, allowing additional usage flags to be specified. If this structure is included in the pNext chain of a buffer query structure, the usage flags of the buffer are returned in usage of this structure, and the usage flags representable in usage of the buffer query structure are also returned in that field.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkBufferUsageFlags2CreateInfoKHR-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkBufferUsageFlags2CreateInfoKHR-usage-parameter
    usage must be a valid combination of VkBufferUsageFlagBits2KHR values

  • VUID-VkBufferUsageFlags2CreateInfoKHR-usage-requiredbitmask
    usage must not be 0
