Associating Callback Interfaces Example


UMDF 2 is the latest version of UMDF and supersedes UMDF 1. All new UMDF drivers should be written using UMDF 2. No new features are being added to UMDF 1 and there is limited support for UMDF 1 on newer versions of Windows 10. Universal Windows drivers must use UMDF 2.

For more info, see Getting Started with UMDF.

The following code example shows how a driver implements a create-instance method that the driver uses to create the device callback object. The driver allocates the callback context and associates the supplied IUnknown with one or more callback interfaces. The framework can subsequently use QueryInterface to discover the callback interfaces supported by the driver.

static HRESULT CreateInstance(
                  IUnknown **ppUnknown, 
                  IWDFDeviceInitialize *pDeviceInit,
                  HANDLE CompletionPort 
                  ) {
   // Allocate the callback context
   CMyDevice *pMyDevice = new CMyDevice();
   HRESULT hr;
   // Discover the callback interface
   hr = pMyDevice->QueryInterface( 
                      (void **) ppUnknown
   return hr;
