C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceToolProperties structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_3
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceToolProperties {
    VkStructureType       sType;
    void*                 pNext;
    char                  name[VK_MAX_EXTENSION_NAME_SIZE];
    char                  version[VK_MAX_EXTENSION_NAME_SIZE];
    VkToolPurposeFlags    purposes;
    char                  description[VK_MAX_DESCRIPTION_SIZE];
    char                  layer[VK_MAX_EXTENSION_NAME_SIZE];
} VkPhysicalDeviceToolProperties;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_EXT_tooling_info
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceToolProperties VkPhysicalDeviceToolPropertiesEXT;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • name is a null-terminated UTF-8 string containing the name of the tool.

  • version is a null-terminated UTF-8 string containing the version of the tool.

  • purposes is a bitmask of VkToolPurposeFlagBits which is populated with purposes supported by the tool.

  • description is a null-terminated UTF-8 string containing a description of the tool.

  • layer is a null-terminated UTF-8 string containing the name of the layer implementing the tool, if the tool is implemented in a layer - otherwise it may be an empty string.


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

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceToolProperties-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL
