The HidD_GetManufacturerString routine returns a top-level collection's embedded string that identifies the manufacturer.
BOOLEAN HidD_GetManufacturerString( HANDLE HidDeviceObject, PVOID Buffer, ULONG BufferLength );
Specifies an open handle to a top-level collection.
Pointer to a caller-allocated buffer that the routine uses to return the collection's manufacturer string. The routine returns a NULL-terminated wide character string in a human-readable format.
Specifies the length, in bytes, of a caller-allocated buffer provided at Buffer. If the buffer is not large enough to return the entire NULL-terminated embedded string, the routine returns nothing in the buffer.
HidD_HidD_GetManufacturerString returns TRUE if it returns the entire NULL-terminated embedded string. Otherwise, the routine returns FALSE. Use GetLastError to get extended error information.
Only user-mode applications can call HidD_GetManufacturerString. Kernel-mode drivers can use an IOCTL_HID_GET_MANUFACTURER_STRING request.
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).
