C Specification

The VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_NV_device_generated_commands_compute
typedef struct VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV {
    VkStructureType        sType;
    const void*            pNext;
    VkPipelineBindPoint    pipelineBindPoint;
    VkPipeline             pipeline;
} VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • pipelineBindPoint is a VkPipelineBindPoint value specifying the type of pipeline whose device address is being queried.

  • pipeline specifies the pipeline whose device address is being queried.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV-pipelineBindPoint-09079
    The provided pipelineBindPoint must be of type VK_PIPELINE_BIND_POINT_COMPUTE

  • VUID-VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV-pipeline-09080
    pipeline must have been created with flag VK_PIPELINE_CREATE_INDIRECT_BINDABLE_BIT_NV set

  • VUID-VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV-pipeline-09081
    pipeline must have been created with a VkComputePipelineIndirectBufferInfoNV structure specifying a valid address where its metadata will be saved

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

  • VUID-VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL

  • VUID-VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV-pipelineBindPoint-parameter
    pipelineBindPoint must be a valid VkPipelineBindPoint value

  • VUID-VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV-pipeline-parameter
    pipeline must be a valid VkPipeline handle
