ID3D12GraphicsCommandList::SetDescriptorHeaps method

Changes the currently bound descriptor heaps that are associated with a command list.

Syntax

void SetDescriptorHeaps(
  UINT                 NumDescriptorHeaps,
  ID3D12DescriptorHeap * const *ppDescriptorHeaps
);

Parameters

NumDescriptorHeaps

Type: UINT

Number of descriptor heaps to bind.

ppDescriptorHeaps

Type: ID3D12DescriptorHeap*

A pointer to an array of ID3D12DescriptorHeap objects for the heaps to set on the command list.

Return Value

This method does not return a value.

Remarks

SetDescriptorHeaps can be called on a bundle, but the bundle descriptor heaps must match the calling command list descriptor heap. For more information on bundle restrictions, refer to Creating and Recording Command Lists and Bundles.

Examples

The D3D12Bundles sample uses ID3D12GraphicsCommandList::SetDescriptorHeaps as follows:

void D3D12Bundles::PopulateCommandList(FrameResource* pFrameResource)
{
    // Command list allocators can only be reset when the associated
    // command lists have finished execution on the GPU; apps should use
    // fences to determine GPU execution progress.
    ThrowIfFailed(m_pCurrentFrameResource->m_commandAllocator->Reset());

    // However, when ExecuteCommandList() is called on a particular command
    // list, that command list can then be reset at any time and must be before
    // re-recording.
    ThrowIfFailed(m_commandList->Reset(m_pCurrentFrameResource->m_commandAllocator.Get(), m_pipelineState1.Get()));

    // Set necessary state.
    m_commandList->SetGraphicsRootSignature(m_rootSignature.Get());

    ID3D12DescriptorHeap* ppHeaps[] = { m_cbvSrvHeap.Get(), m_samplerHeap.Get() };
    m_commandList->SetDescriptorHeaps(_countof(ppHeaps), ppHeaps);

    m_commandList->RSSetViewports(1, &m_viewport);
    m_commandList->RSSetScissorRects(1, &m_scissorRect);

    // Indicate that the back buffer will be used as a render target.
    m_commandList->ResourceBarrier(1, &CD3DX12_RESOURCE_BARRIER::Transition(m_renderTargets[m_frameIndex].Get(), D3D12_RESOURCE_STATE_PRESENT, D3D12_RESOURCE_STATE_RENDER_TARGET));

    CD3DX12_CPU_DESCRIPTOR_HANDLE rtvHandle(m_rtvHeap->GetCPUDescriptorHandleForHeapStart(), m_frameIndex, m_rtvDescriptorSize);
    CD3DX12_CPU_DESCRIPTOR_HANDLE dsvHandle(m_dsvHeap->GetCPUDescriptorHandleForHeapStart());
    m_commandList->OMSetRenderTargets(1, &rtvHandle, FALSE, &dsvHandle);

    // Record commands.
    const float clearColor[] = { 0.0f, 0.2f, 0.4f, 1.0f };
    m_commandList->ClearRenderTargetView(rtvHandle, clearColor, 0, nullptr);
    m_commandList->ClearDepthStencilView(m_dsvHeap->GetCPUDescriptorHandleForHeapStart(), D3D12_CLEAR_FLAG_DEPTH, 1.0f, 0, 0, nullptr);

    if (UseBundles)
    {
        // Execute the prebuilt bundle.
        m_commandList->ExecuteBundle(pFrameResource->m_bundle.Get());
    }
    else
    {
        // Populate a new command list.
        pFrameResource->PopulateCommandList(m_commandList.Get(), m_pipelineState1.Get(), m_pipelineState2.Get(), m_currentFrameResourceIndex, m_numIndices, &m_indexBufferView,
            &m_vertexBufferView, m_cbvSrvHeap.Get(), m_cbvSrvDescriptorSize, m_samplerHeap.Get(), m_rootSignature.Get());
    }

    // Indicate that the back buffer will now be used to present.
    m_commandList->ResourceBarrier(1, &CD3DX12_RESOURCE_BARRIER::Transition(m_renderTargets[m_frameIndex].Get(), D3D12_RESOURCE_STATE_RENDER_TARGET, D3D12_RESOURCE_STATE_PRESENT));

    ThrowIfFailed(m_commandList->Close());
}
