Each display has one or more supported modes associated with it by default. These built-in modes are queried by calling:
// Provided by VK_KHR_display VkResult vkGetDisplayModePropertiesKHR( VkPhysicalDevice physicalDevice, VkDisplayKHR display, uint32_t* pPropertyCount, VkDisplayModePropertiesKHR* pProperties);
physicalDeviceis the physical device associated with
displayis the display to query.
pPropertyCountis a pointer to an integer related to the number of display modes available or queried, as described below.
NULLor a pointer to an array of
NULL, then the number of display modes available
on the specified
physicalDevice is returned in
pPropertyCount must point to a variable set by the user to
the number of elements in the
pProperties array, and on return the
variable is overwritten with the number of structures actually written to
If the value of
pPropertyCount is less than the number of display
physicalDevice, at most
pPropertyCount structures will
be written, and
VK_INCOMPLETE will be returned instead of
VK_SUCCESS, to indicate that not all the available display modes were
