C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceSurfaceInfo2KHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_get_surface_capabilities2
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceSurfaceInfo2KHR {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkSurfaceKHR       surface;
} VkPhysicalDeviceSurfaceInfo2KHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • surface is the surface that will be associated with the swapchain.


The members of VkPhysicalDeviceSurfaceInfo2KHR correspond to the arguments to vkGetPhysicalDeviceSurfaceCapabilitiesKHR, with sType and pNext added for extensibility.

Additional capabilities of a surface may be available to swapchains created with different full-screen exclusive settings - particularly if exclusive full-screen access is application controlled. These additional capabilities can be queried by adding a VkSurfaceFullScreenExclusiveInfoEXT structure to the pNext chain of this structure when used to query surface properties. Additionally, for Win32 surfaces with application controlled exclusive full-screen access, chaining a VkSurfaceFullScreenExclusiveWin32InfoEXT structure may also report additional surface capabilities. These additional capabilities only apply to swapchains created with the same parameters included in the pNext chain of VkSwapchainCreateInfoKHR.

Valid Usage
Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSurfaceInfo2KHR-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSurfaceInfo2KHR-pNext-pNext
    Each pNext member of any structure (including this one) in the pNext chain must be either NULL or a pointer to a valid instance of VkSurfaceFullScreenExclusiveInfoEXT, VkSurfaceFullScreenExclusiveWin32InfoEXT, or VkSurfacePresentModeEXT

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSurfaceInfo2KHR-sType-unique
    The sType value of each struct in the pNext chain must be unique
