To create a
VkSurfaceKHR object for a CAMetalLayer, call:
// Provided by VK_EXT_metal_surface VkResult vkCreateMetalSurfaceEXT( VkInstance instance, const VkMetalSurfaceCreateInfoEXT* pCreateInfo, const VkAllocationCallbacks* pAllocator, VkSurfaceKHR* pSurface);
instanceis the instance with which to associate the surface.
pCreateInfois a pointer to a VkMetalSurfaceCreateInfoEXT structure specifying parameters affecting the creation of the surface object.
pAllocatoris the allocator used for host memory allocated for the surface object when there is no more specific allocator available (see Memory Allocation).
pSurfaceis a pointer to a
VkSurfaceKHRhandle in which the created surface object is returned.
