C Specification

To destroy a buffer view, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
void vkDestroyBufferView(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkBufferView                                bufferView,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator);


  • device is the logical device that destroys the buffer view.

  • bufferView is the buffer view to destroy.

  • pAllocator controls host memory allocation as described in the Memory Allocation chapter.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkDestroyBufferView-bufferView-00936
    All submitted commands that refer to bufferView must have completed execution

  • VUID-vkDestroyBufferView-bufferView-00937
    If VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when bufferView was created, a compatible set of callbacks must be provided here

  • VUID-vkDestroyBufferView-bufferView-00938
    If no VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when bufferView was created, pAllocator must be NULL

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkDestroyBufferView-device-parameter
    device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • VUID-vkDestroyBufferView-bufferView-parameter
    If bufferView is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, bufferView must be a valid VkBufferView handle

  • VUID-vkDestroyBufferView-pAllocator-parameter
    If pAllocator is not NULL, pAllocator must be a valid pointer to a valid VkAllocationCallbacks structure

  • VUID-vkDestroyBufferView-bufferView-parent
    If bufferView is a valid handle, it must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from device

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to bufferView must be externally synchronized
