C Specification

To reserve private data storage slots, add a VkDevicePrivateDataCreateInfo structure to the pNext chain of the VkDeviceCreateInfo structure. Reserving slots in this manner is not strictly necessary, but doing so may improve performance.

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_3
typedef struct VkDevicePrivateDataCreateInfo {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    uint32_t           privateDataSlotRequestCount;
} VkDevicePrivateDataCreateInfo;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_EXT_private_data
typedef VkDevicePrivateDataCreateInfo VkDevicePrivateDataCreateInfoEXT;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • privateDataSlotRequestCount is the amount of slots to reserve.


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