C Specification

The VkDirectDriverLoadingListLUNARG structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_LUNARG_direct_driver_loading
typedef struct VkDirectDriverLoadingListLUNARG {
    VkStructureType                           sType;
    const void*                               pNext;
    VkDirectDriverLoadingModeLUNARG           mode;
    uint32_t                                  driverCount;
    const VkDirectDriverLoadingInfoLUNARG*    pDrivers;
} VkDirectDriverLoadingListLUNARG;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • mode controls the mode in which to load the provided drivers.

  • driverCount is the number of driver manifest paths.

  • pDrivers is a pointer to an array of driverCount VkDirectDriverLoadingInfoLUNARG structures.


When creating a Vulkan instance for which additional drivers are to be included, add a VkDirectDriverLoadingListLUNARG structure to the pNext chain of the VkInstanceCreateInfo structure, and include in it the list of VkDirectDriverLoadingInfoLUNARG structures which contain the information necessary to load additional drivers.

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

  • VUID-VkDirectDriverLoadingListLUNARG-mode-parameter
    mode must be a valid VkDirectDriverLoadingModeLUNARG value

  • VUID-VkDirectDriverLoadingListLUNARG-pDrivers-parameter
    pDrivers must be a valid pointer to an array of driverCount valid VkDirectDriverLoadingInfoLUNARG structures

  • VUID-VkDirectDriverLoadingListLUNARG-driverCount-arraylength
    driverCount must be greater than 0
