Vulkan Support

Include File(s): SDL_vulkan.h


This category contains functions for creating a Vulkan instance with the required Vulkan extensions for surface creation.

The general flow of a Vulkan backed SDL application will be the following:

  1. If necessary, use SDL_Vulkan_LoadLibrary and SDL_Vulkan_GetVkInstanceProcAddr to load the Vulkan library and query for driver function pointers (after initializing the video subsystem)

  2. Query for required extensions using SDL_Vulkan_GetInstanceExtensions and use this information to create a VkInstance

  3. Create a surface for the window to draw on using SDL_Vulkan_CreateSurface

  4. When setting up pipelines and framebuffers for your newly created surface, use SDL_Vulkan_GetDrawableSize to query the surface extent
