C Specification

To destroy an image view, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
void vkDestroyImageView(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkImageView                                 imageView,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator);


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

  • imageView is the image view to destroy.

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


Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkDestroyImageView-imageView-01026
    All submitted commands that refer to imageView must have completed execution

  • VUID-vkDestroyImageView-imageView-01027
    If VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when imageView was created, a compatible set of callbacks must be provided here

  • VUID-vkDestroyImageView-imageView-01028
    If no VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when imageView was created, pAllocator must be NULL

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

  • VUID-vkDestroyImageView-imageView-parameter
    If imageView is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, imageView must be a valid VkImageView handle

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

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

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to imageView must be externally synchronized
