C Specification

To destroy a descriptor set layout, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
void vkDestroyDescriptorSetLayout(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkDescriptorSetLayout                       descriptorSetLayout,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator);


  • device is the logical device that destroys the descriptor set layout.

  • descriptorSetLayout is the descriptor set layout to destroy.

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


Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkDestroyDescriptorSetLayout-descriptorSetLayout-00284
    If VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when descriptorSetLayout was created, a compatible set of callbacks must be provided here

  • VUID-vkDestroyDescriptorSetLayout-descriptorSetLayout-00285
    If no VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when descriptorSetLayout was created, pAllocator must be NULL

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

  • VUID-vkDestroyDescriptorSetLayout-descriptorSetLayout-parameter
    If descriptorSetLayout is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, descriptorSetLayout must be a valid VkDescriptorSetLayout handle

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

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

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to descriptorSetLayout must be externally synchronized
