C Specification

To destroy a validation cache, call:

// Provided by VK_EXT_validation_cache
void vkDestroyValidationCacheEXT(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkValidationCacheEXT                        validationCache,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator);


  • device is the logical device that destroys the validation cache object.

  • validationCache is the handle of the validation cache to destroy.

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


Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkDestroyValidationCacheEXT-validationCache-01537
    If VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when validationCache was created, a compatible set of callbacks must be provided here

  • VUID-vkDestroyValidationCacheEXT-validationCache-01538
    If no VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when validationCache was created, pAllocator must be NULL

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

  • VUID-vkDestroyValidationCacheEXT-validationCache-parameter
    If validationCache is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, validationCache must be a valid VkValidationCacheEXT handle

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

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

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to validationCache must be externally synchronized
