C Specification

To destroy a render pass, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
void vkDestroyRenderPass(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkRenderPass                                renderPass,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator);


  • device is the logical device that destroys the render pass.

  • renderPass is the handle of the render pass to destroy.

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


Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkDestroyRenderPass-renderPass-00873
    All submitted commands that refer to renderPass must have completed execution

  • VUID-vkDestroyRenderPass-renderPass-00874
    If VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when renderPass was created, a compatible set of callbacks must be provided here

  • VUID-vkDestroyRenderPass-renderPass-00875
    If no VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when renderPass was created, pAllocator must be NULL

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

  • VUID-vkDestroyRenderPass-renderPass-parameter
    If renderPass is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, renderPass must be a valid VkRenderPass handle

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

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

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to renderPass must be externally synchronized
