C Specification

To dynamically enable or disable the depth test, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_3
void vkCmdSetDepthTestEnable(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    VkBool32                                    depthTestEnable);

or the equivalent command

// Provided by VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state
void vkCmdSetDepthTestEnableEXT(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    VkBool32                                    depthTestEnable);

Parameters

  • commandBuffer is the command buffer into which the command will be recorded.

  • depthTestEnable specifies if the depth test is enabled.

Description

This command sets the depth test enable for subsequent drawing commands when the graphics pipeline is created with VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_DEPTH_TEST_ENABLE set in VkPipelineDynamicStateCreateInfo::pDynamicStates. Otherwise, this state is specified by the VkPipelineDepthStencilStateCreateInfo::depthTestEnable value used to create the currently active pipeline.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkCmdSetDepthTestEnable-commandBuffer-parameter
    commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • VUID-vkCmdSetDepthTestEnable-commandBuffer-recording
    commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • VUID-vkCmdSetDepthTestEnable-commandBuffer-cmdpool
    The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support graphics operations

  • VUID-vkCmdSetDepthTestEnable-videocoding
    This command must only be called outside of a video coding scope

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to commandBuffer must be externally synchronized

  • Host access to the VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must be externally synchronized
