C Specification

The VkCommandBufferBeginInfo structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
typedef struct VkCommandBufferBeginInfo {
    VkStructureType                          sType;
    const void*                              pNext;
    VkCommandBufferUsageFlags                flags;
    const VkCommandBufferInheritanceInfo*    pInheritanceInfo;
} VkCommandBufferBeginInfo;

Members

  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • flags is a bitmask of VkCommandBufferUsageFlagBits specifying usage behavior for the command buffer.

  • pInheritanceInfo is a pointer to a VkCommandBufferInheritanceInfo structure, used if commandBuffer is a secondary command buffer. If this is a primary command buffer, then this value is ignored.

Description

Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkCommandBufferBeginInfo-flags-00055
    If flags contains VK_COMMAND_BUFFER_USAGE_RENDER_PASS_CONTINUE_BIT, the framebuffer member of pInheritanceInfo must be either VK_NULL_HANDLE, or a valid VkFramebuffer that is compatible with the renderPass member of pInheritanceInfo

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferBeginInfo-flags-06000
    If flags contains VK_COMMAND_BUFFER_USAGE_RENDER_PASS_CONTINUE_BIT and the renderPass member of pInheritanceInfo is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, renderPass must be a valid VkRenderPass

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferBeginInfo-flags-06001
    If flags contains VK_COMMAND_BUFFER_USAGE_RENDER_PASS_CONTINUE_BIT and the renderPass member of pInheritanceInfo is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, the subpass member of pInheritanceInfo must be a valid subpass index within the renderPass member of pInheritanceInfo

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferBeginInfo-flags-06002
    If flags contains VK_COMMAND_BUFFER_USAGE_RENDER_PASS_CONTINUE_BIT and the renderPass member of pInheritanceInfo is VK_NULL_HANDLE, the pNext chain of pInheritanceInfo must include a VkCommandBufferInheritanceRenderingInfoKHR structure

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferBeginInfo-flags-06003
    If flags contains VK_COMMAND_BUFFER_USAGE_RENDER_PASS_CONTINUE_BIT, the renderPass member of pInheritanceInfo is VK_NULL_HANDLE, and the pNext chain of pInheritanceInfo includes a VkAttachmentSampleCountInfoAMD or VkAttachmentSampleCountInfoNV structure, the colorAttachmentCount member of that structure must be equal to the value of VkCommandBufferInheritanceRenderingInfoKHR::colorAttachmentCount

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkCommandBufferBeginInfo-sType-sType
    sType must be VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_COMMAND_BUFFER_BEGIN_INFO

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferBeginInfo-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL or a pointer to a valid instance of VkDeviceGroupCommandBufferBeginInfo

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferBeginInfo-sType-unique
    The sType value of each struct in the pNext chain must be unique

  • VUID-VkCommandBufferBeginInfo-flags-parameter
    flags must be a valid combination of VkCommandBufferUsageFlagBits values
