IOCTL_BIOMETRIC_GET_ATTRIBUTES IOCTL

The IOCTL_BIOMETRIC_GET_ATTRIBUTES IOCTL returns a structure that contains a set of attributes for the sensor. Vendor-supplied WBDI drivers must support this IOCTL.

Major Code

IRP_MJ_DEVICE_CONTROL

Input Buffer

None.

Input Buffer Length

None.

Output Buffer

The AssociatedIrp.SystemBuffer member points to a buffer that contains a WINBIO_SENSOR_ATTRIBUTES structure.

Output Buffer Length

The smallest valid output buffer size is the size of DWORD. If the driver receives an DWORD-sized output buffer, the driver should return the buffer size necessary for the requested operation.

Status Block

Indicates whether the DeviceIoControl call to the driver completed and the OUT payload is valid.

The Status member is set to one of the values in the following table.

Status value Description
S_OK, STATUS_SUCCESS The operation completed successfully. If the size of data returned is DWORD, the payload contains the size of the buffer necessary for the call. Otherwise, the payload contains the full output buffer.
E_INVALIDARG The parameters were not specified correctly.
E_UNKNOWN Any other failure that prevents the payload from being filled in.
E_UNEXPECTED Any other failure that prevents the payload from being filled in.
E_FAIL Any other failure that prevents the payload from being filled in.

Remarks

If the vendor-supplied driver passes back the entire payload, it should fill in the WinBioHresult member of WINBIO_SENSOR_ATTRIBUTES with an HRESULT value indicating the status of the biometric operation.
