HidDevice.InputReportReceived HidDevice.InputReportReceived HidDevice.InputReportReceived HidDevice.InputReportReceived HidDevice.InputReportReceived Event


Establishes an event listener to handle input reports issued by the device when either GetInputReportAsync() or GetInputReportAsync(System.UInt16 reportId) is called.

public : event TypedEventHandler<HidDevice, HidInputReportReceivedEventArgs> InputReportReceived
// Register
event_token InputReportReceived(TypedEventHandler<HidDevice, HidInputReportReceivedEventArgs> const& handler) const;

// Revoke with event_token
void InputReportReceived(event_token const& cookie) const;

// Revoke with event_revoker
InputReportReceived_revoker InputReportReceived(auto_revoke_t, TypedEventHandler<HidDevice, HidInputReportReceivedEventArgs> const& handler) const;
public event TypedEventHandler<HidDevice, HidInputReportReceivedEventArgs> InputReportReceived
Public Event InputReportReceived As TypedEventHandler (Of HidDevice, HidInputReportReceivedEventArgs)
function onInputReportReceived(eventArgs){/* Your code */}

hidDevice.addEventListener("inputreportreceived", onInputReportReceived);
hidDevice.removeEventListener("inputreportreceived", onInputReportReceived);


Here, we retrieve an input report (inputReport) and get the content of the report in the handler for the InputReportReceived event, triggered when the asynchronous call completes.

HidInputReport inputReport = await device.GetInputReportAsync();
private void InputReportReceived(
    HidDevice sender, 
    HidInputReportReceivedEventArgs args)
        HidInputReport inputReport = args.Report;
        IBuffer buffer = inputReport.Data;
        DataReader dr = DataReader.FromBuffer(buffer);
        byte[] bytes = new byte[inputReport.Data.Length];

        String inputReportContent = 


This method waits for the device to interrupt the host when it has data to send. Internally, the HID WinRT API sends a IOCTL read request to a lower driver in the stack.

The IOCTL is translated by the HID minidriver into a protocol-specific request. For a USB device, the minidriver translates this into an INTERRUPT IN request. And, for an I2C device that is running over the Microsoft HID-I2C miniport driver, the minidriver will wait for the device to assert an interrupt.
