In Windows Vista and later versions of Windows, the DEVPROP_TYPE_BYTE identifier represents the base-data-type identifier that indicates the data type is a BYTE-typed unsigned integer.


DEVPROP_TYPE_BYTE can be combined only with the DEVPROP_TYPEMOD_ARRAY property-data-type modifier.

Setting a Property of this Type

To set a property whose data type is DEVPROP_TYPE_BYTE, call the corresponding SetupDiSetXxx property function, setting the function input parameters as follows:

  • Set the PropertyType parameter to DEVPROP_TYPE_BYTE, set the PropertyBuffer parameter to a pointer to a buffer that can contain at least one BYTE value, and set the PropertyBufferSize parameter to sizeof(BYTE).

  • Set the other function input parameters as appropriate to set the property.
