C Specification

If the pNext chain of VkSwapchainCreateInfoKHR includes a VkSurfaceFullScreenExclusiveInfoEXT structure, then that structure specifies the application’s preferred full-screen transition behavior.

The VkSurfaceFullScreenExclusiveInfoEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_full_screen_exclusive
typedef struct VkSurfaceFullScreenExclusiveInfoEXT {
    VkStructureType             sType;
    void*                       pNext;
    VkFullScreenExclusiveEXT    fullScreenExclusive;
} VkSurfaceFullScreenExclusiveInfoEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • fullScreenExclusive is a VkFullScreenExclusiveEXT value specifying the preferred full-screen transition behavior.


If this structure is not present, fullScreenExclusive is considered to be VK_FULL_SCREEN_EXCLUSIVE_DEFAULT_EXT.

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

  • VUID-VkSurfaceFullScreenExclusiveInfoEXT-fullScreenExclusive-parameter
    fullScreenExclusive must be a valid VkFullScreenExclusiveEXT value
