PROTOCOL_CO_STATUS_EX callback function

The ProtocolCoStatusEx function indicates status changes from underlying connection-oriented drivers or from NDIS.

Note  You must declare the function by using the PROTOCOL_CO_STATUS_EX type. For more information, see the following Examples section.
 

Syntax

PROTOCOL_CO_STATUS_EX ProtocolCoStatusEx;

void ProtocolCoStatusEx(
  NDIS_HANDLE ProtocolBindingContext,
  NDIS_HANDLE ProtocolVcContext,
  PNDIS_STATUS_INDICATION StatusIndication
)
{...}

Parameters

ProtocolBindingContext

A handle to a protocol driver-allocated context area. The protocol driver maintains the per-binding context information in this context area. The driver supplied this handle to NDIS when the driver called the NdisOpenAdapterEx function.

ProtocolVcContext

A handle to a protocol driver-allocated context area in which the protocol driver maintains virtual connection (VC) run-time state information. If the status indication is not VC-specific, this parameter is NULL. Otherwise, the protocol driver originally supplied this handle either when it called the NdisCoCreateVc function or from its ProtocolCoCreateVc function.

StatusIndication

A pointer to an NDIS_STATUS_INDICATION structure that contains the status information.

Return Value

None

Remarks

NDIS calls ProtocolCoStatusEx to notify a protocol driver about changes in the status of an underlying CoNDIS driver. A NULL VC handle for the ProtocolVcContext parameter indicates a status change that is not specific to a VC. For a non-NULL VC handle, NDIS restricts the status notification to clients or call managers that share this VC handle.

NDIS serializes status indications for each protocol binding. To determine link status, use the status indications from underlying drivers instead of OID queries. These status indications will improve system performance and avoid possible race conditions.

NDIS calls ProtocolCoStatusEx at IRQL <= DISPATCH_LEVEL.

Examples

To define a ProtocolCoStatusEx function, you must first provide a function declaration that identifies the type of function you're defining. Windows provides a set of function types for drivers. Declaring a function using the function types helps Code Analysis for Drivers, Static Driver Verifier (SDV), and other verification tools find errors, and it's a requirement for writing drivers for the Windows operating system.

For example, to define a ProtocolCoStatusEx function that is named "MyCoStatusEx", use the PROTOCOL_CO_STATUS_EX type as shown in this code example:

PROTOCOL_CO_STATUS_EX MyCoStatusEx;
Then, implement your function as follows:
_Use_decl_annotations_
VOID
 MyCoStatusEx(
    NDIS_HANDLE  ProtocolBindingContext,
    NDIS_HANDLE  ProtocolVcContext,
    PNDIS_STATUS_INDICATION  StatusIndication
    )
  {...}
The PROTOCOL_CO_STATUS_EX function type is defined in the Ndis.h header file. To more accurately identify errors when you run the code analysis tools, be sure to add the _Use_decl_annotations_ annotation to your function definition. The _Use_decl_annotations_ annotation ensures that the annotations that are applied to the PROTOCOL_CO_STATUS_EX function type in the header file are used. For more information about the requirements for function declarations, see Declaring Functions by Using Function Role Types for NDIS Drivers.

For information about Use_decl_annotations, see Annotating Function Behavior.
