C Specification

To query the basic capabilities of a surface defined by the core or extensions, call:

// Provided by VK_KHR_get_surface_capabilities2
VkResult vkGetPhysicalDeviceSurfaceCapabilities2KHR(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    const VkPhysicalDeviceSurfaceInfo2KHR*      pSurfaceInfo,
    VkSurfaceCapabilities2KHR*                  pSurfaceCapabilities);



vkGetPhysicalDeviceSurfaceCapabilities2KHR behaves similarly to vkGetPhysicalDeviceSurfaceCapabilitiesKHR, with the ability to specify extended inputs via chained input structures, and to return extended information via chained output structures.

Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkGetPhysicalDeviceSurfaceCapabilities2KHR-pSurfaceInfo-06521
    If the VK_GOOGLE_surfaceless_query extension is not enabled, pSurfaceInfo->surface must be a valid VkSurfaceKHR handle

  • VUID-vkGetPhysicalDeviceSurfaceCapabilities2KHR-pSurfaceInfo-06522
    If pSurfaceInfo->surface is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, pSurfaceInfo->surface must be supported by physicalDevice, as reported by vkGetPhysicalDeviceSurfaceSupportKHR or an equivalent platform-specific mechanism

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkGetPhysicalDeviceSurfaceCapabilities2KHR-physicalDevice-parameter
    physicalDevice must be a valid VkPhysicalDevice handle

  • VUID-vkGetPhysicalDeviceSurfaceCapabilities2KHR-pSurfaceInfo-parameter
    pSurfaceInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkPhysicalDeviceSurfaceInfo2KHR structure

  • VUID-vkGetPhysicalDeviceSurfaceCapabilities2KHR-pSurfaceCapabilities-parameter
    pSurfaceCapabilities must be a valid pointer to a VkSurfaceCapabilities2KHR structure

Return Codes
On success, this command returns

On failure, this command returns
