C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeatures structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_3
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeatures {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           inlineUniformBlock;
    VkBool32           descriptorBindingInlineUniformBlockUpdateAfterBind;
} VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeatures;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_EXT_inline_uniform_block
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeatures VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeaturesEXT;


This structure describes the following features:


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • inlineUniformBlock indicates whether the implementation supports inline uniform block descriptors. If this feature is not enabled, VK_DESCRIPTOR_TYPE_INLINE_UNIFORM_BLOCK must not be used.

  • descriptorBindingInlineUniformBlockUpdateAfterBind indicates whether the implementation supports updating inline uniform block descriptors after a set is bound. If this feature is not enabled, VK_DESCRIPTOR_BINDING_UPDATE_AFTER_BIND_BIT must not be used with VK_DESCRIPTOR_TYPE_INLINE_UNIFORM_BLOCK.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeatures structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled in to indicate whether each corresponding feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeatures can also be used in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to selectively enable these features.

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