C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeaturesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_inline_uniform_block
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeaturesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           inlineUniformBlock;
    VkBool32           descriptorBindingInlineUniformBlockUpdateAfterBind;
} VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeaturesEXT;


The members of the VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeaturesEXT structure describe the following features:


  • inlineUniformBlock indicates whether the implementation supports inline uniform block descriptors. If this feature is not enabled, VK_DESCRIPTOR_TYPE_INLINE_UNIFORM_BLOCK_EXT must not be used.

  • descriptorBindingInlineUniformBlockUpdateAfterBind indicates whether the implementation supports updating inline uniform block descriptors after a set is bound. If this feature is not enabled, VK_DESCRIPTOR_BINDING_UPDATE_AFTER_BIND_BIT must not be used with VK_DESCRIPTOR_TYPE_INLINE_UNIFORM_BLOCK_EXT.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeaturesEXT structure is included in the pNext chain of VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled with values indicating whether each feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeaturesEXT can also be included in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to enable features.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceInlineUniformBlockFeaturesEXT-sType-sType
