C Specification

The VkDebugMarkerObjectNameInfoEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_debug_marker
typedef struct VkDebugMarkerObjectNameInfoEXT {
    VkStructureType               sType;
    const void*                   pNext;
    VkDebugReportObjectTypeEXT    objectType;
    uint64_t                      object;
    const char*                   pObjectName;
} VkDebugMarkerObjectNameInfoEXT;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • objectType is a VkDebugReportObjectTypeEXT specifying the type of the object to be named.

  • object is the object to be named.

  • pObjectName is a null-terminated UTF-8 string specifying the name to apply to object.


Applications may change the name associated with an object simply by calling vkDebugMarkerSetObjectNameEXT again with a new string. To remove a previously set name, pObjectName should be set to an empty string.
