DOT11EXT_GET_PROFILE_CUSTOM_USER_DATA callback function

Important  The Native 802.11 Wireless LAN interface is deprecated in Windows 10 and later. Please use the WLAN Device Driver Interface (WDI) instead. For more information about WDI, see WLAN Universal Windows driver model.
 
The IHV Extensions DLL calls the Dot11ExtGetProfileCustomUserData function to retrieve data from the system registry specific to the current user and network profile used for the basic service set (BSS) network connection.

Syntax

DOT11EXT_GET_PROFILE_CUSTOM_USER_DATA Dot11extGetProfileCustomUserData;

DWORD Dot11extGetProfileCustomUserData(
  HANDLE hDot11SvcHandle,
  HANDLE hConnectSession,
  DWORD dwSessionID,
  DWORD *pdwDataSize,
  LPVOID *ppvData
)
{...}

Parameters

hDot11SvcHandle

The handle used by the operating system to reference the wireless LAN (WLAN) adapter. This handle value was specified through a previous call to the Dot11ExtIhvInitAdapter IHV Handler function.

hConnectSession

The handle used by the operating system to reference the connection session with the basic service set (BSS) network. This handle value was specified through a previous call to the Dot11ExtIhvPerformPreAssociate IHV Handler function.

dwSessionID

The session identifier (session ID) of the current user.

pdwDataSize

ppvData

Return Value

If the call succeeds, the function returns ERROR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, it returns an error code defined in Winerror.h.

Remarks

The operating system does not decrypt the data referenced by the ppvData parameter after reading it from the system registry. The IHV Extensions DLL should use its own decryption algorithm to decrypt the data after calling Dot11ExtGetProfileCustomUserData.

For every wireless WLAN profile used by the Native Wifi AutoConfig service, Windows maintains the concept of custom user data. This custom user data is initially non-existent, but can be set by calling the Dot11ExtSetProfileCustomUserData function. The custom user data gets reset to empty any time the profile is modified by calling the Dot11ExtSetCurrentProfile function.

After custom user data has been set, this data can be accessed using the Dot11ExtGetProfileCustomUserData function.

The caller is responsible for freeing the memory allocated for the buffer pointed to by the ppvData parameter using the Dot11ExtFreeBuffer function.

Requirements

   
Minimum supported client Available in Windows Vista and later versions of the Windows operating systems.
Target Platform Desktop
Header wlanihv.h (include Wlanihv.h)
