IOCTL_HID_GET_MANUFACTURER_STRING IOCTL

The IOCTL_HID_GET_MANUFACTURER_STRING request obtains a top-level collection's embedded string that identifies the manufacturer of the device. The retrieved string is a NULL-terminated wide character string in a human-readable format.

For general information about HIDClass devices, see HID Collections.

Major code

IRP_MJ_DEVICE_CONTROL

Input buffer

Parameters.DeviceIoControl.OutputBufferLength in the I/O stack location of the IRP indicates the size, in bytes, of the output buffer. If the output buffer is not large enough to hold the entire NULL-terminated embedded string, the request returns nothing in the output buffer.

Input buffer length

The maximum possible number of characters in an embedded string is device specific. For USB devices, the maximum string length is 126 wide characters (not including the terminating NULL character).

Output buffer

Irp->MdlAddress points to a buffer to receive the manufacturer ID (a NULL-terminated wide character string).

Status block

The HID class driver sets the following fields of Irp->IoStatus:

  • Information is set to the number of bytes transferred from the device.
  • Status is set to STATUS_SUCCESS if the transfer completed without error. Otherwise, it is set to an appropriate NTSTATUS error code.
