C Specification

When creating a Vulkan instance for which you wish to disable validation checks, add a VkValidationFlagsEXT structure to the pNext chain of the VkInstanceCreateInfo structure, specifying the checks to be disabled.

// Provided by VK_EXT_validation_flags
typedef struct VkValidationFlagsEXT {
    VkStructureType                sType;
    const void*                    pNext;
    uint32_t                       disabledValidationCheckCount;
    const VkValidationCheckEXT*    pDisabledValidationChecks;
} VkValidationFlagsEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • disabledValidationCheckCount is the number of checks to disable.

  • pDisabledValidationChecks is a pointer to an array of VkValidationCheckEXT values specifying the validation checks to be disabled.


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

  • VUID-VkValidationFlagsEXT-pDisabledValidationChecks-parameter
    pDisabledValidationChecks must be a valid pointer to an array of disabledValidationCheckCount valid VkValidationCheckEXT values

  • VUID-VkValidationFlagsEXT-disabledValidationCheckCount-arraylength
    disabledValidationCheckCount must be greater than 0
