C Specification

The VkWin32SurfaceCreateInfoKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_win32_surface
typedef struct VkWin32SurfaceCreateInfoKHR {
    VkStructureType                 sType;
    const void*                     pNext;
    VkWin32SurfaceCreateFlagsKHR    flags;
    HINSTANCE                       hinstance;
    HWND                            hwnd;
} VkWin32SurfaceCreateInfoKHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • flags is reserved for future use.

  • hinstance is the Win32 HINSTANCE for the window to associate the surface with.

  • hwnd is the Win32 HWND for the window to associate the surface with.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkWin32SurfaceCreateInfoKHR-hinstance-01307
    hinstance must be a valid Win32 HINSTANCE

  • VUID-VkWin32SurfaceCreateInfoKHR-hwnd-01308
    hwnd must be a valid Win32 HWND

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkWin32SurfaceCreateInfoKHR-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkWin32SurfaceCreateInfoKHR-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL

  • VUID-VkWin32SurfaceCreateInfoKHR-flags-zerobitmask
    flags must be 0
