C Specification

The VkExternalBufferProperties structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef struct VkExternalBufferProperties {
    VkStructureType               sType;
    void*                         pNext;
    VkExternalMemoryProperties    externalMemoryProperties;
} VkExternalBufferProperties;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_external_memory_capabilities
typedef VkExternalBufferProperties VkExternalBufferPropertiesKHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • externalMemoryProperties is a VkExternalMemoryProperties structure specifying various capabilities of the external handle type when used with the specified buffer creation parameters.


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

  • VUID-VkExternalBufferProperties-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL
