C Specification

The VkSurfaceFormat2KHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_get_surface_capabilities2
typedef struct VkSurfaceFormat2KHR {
    VkStructureType       sType;
    void*                 pNext;
    VkSurfaceFormatKHR    surfaceFormat;
} VkSurfaceFormat2KHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • surfaceFormat is a VkSurfaceFormatKHR structure describing a format-color space pair that is compatible with the specified surface.


If the imageCompressionControlSwapchain feature is supported and a VkImageCompressionPropertiesEXT structure is included in the pNext chain of this structure, then it will be filled with the compression properties that are supported for the surfaceFormat.

Valid Usage
Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkSurfaceFormat2KHR-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkSurfaceFormat2KHR-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL or a pointer to a valid instance of VkImageCompressionPropertiesEXT

  • VUID-VkSurfaceFormat2KHR-sType-unique
    The sType value of each struct in the pNext chain must be unique
