The GPUPipelineLayout interface of the WebGPU API defines the GPUBindGroupLayouts used by a pipeline. GPUBindGroups used with the pipeline during command encoding must have compatible GPUBindGroupLayouts.

A GPUPipelineLayout object instance is created using the GPUDevice.createPipelineLayout() method.

Instance properties

label Experimental

A string providing a label that can be used to identify the object, for example in GPUError messages or console warnings.


Note: The WebGPU samples feature many more examples.

Basic pipeline layout example

The following snippet:

// ...

const bindGroupLayout = device.createBindGroupLayout({
  entries: [
      binding: 0,
      visibility: GPUShaderStage.VERTEX | GPUShaderStage.FRAGMENT,
      buffer: {},
      binding: 1,
      visibility: GPUShaderStage.FRAGMENT,
      texture: {},
      binding: 2,
      visibility: GPUShaderStage.FRAGMENT,
      sampler: {},

const pipelineLayout = device.createPipelineLayout({
  bindGroupLayouts: [bindGroupLayout],

// ...
