C Specification

The VkMemoryHostPointerPropertiesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_external_memory_host
typedef struct VkMemoryHostPointerPropertiesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    uint32_t           memoryTypeBits;
} VkMemoryHostPointerPropertiesEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • memoryTypeBits is a bitmask containing one bit set for every memory type which the specified host pointer can be imported as.


The value returned by memoryTypeBits must only include bits that identify memory types which are host visible.

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

  • VUID-VkMemoryHostPointerPropertiesEXT-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL
