HW_PROFILE_INFOA structure

Contains information about a hardware profile. The GetCurrentHwProfile function uses this structure to retrieve the current hardware profile for the local computer.

Syntax

typedef struct tagHW_PROFILE_INFOA {
  DWORD dwDockInfo;
  CHAR  szHwProfileGuid[HW_PROFILE_GUIDLEN];
  CHAR  szHwProfileName[MAX_PROFILE_LEN];
} HW_PROFILE_INFOA, *LPHW_PROFILE_INFOA;

Members

dwDockInfo

The reported docking state of the computer. This member can be a combination of the following bit values.

Value Meaning
DOCKINFO_DOCKED
0x2
The computer is docked.
DOCKINFO_UNDOCKED
0x1
The computer is undocked. This flag is always set for desktop systems that cannot be undocked.
DOCKINFO_USER_SUPPLIED
0x4
If this flag is set, GetCurrentHwProfile retrieved the current docking state from information provided by the user in the Hardware Profiles page of the System control panel application.

If there is no such value or the value is set to 0, this flag is set.

DOCKINFO_USER_DOCKED
0x5
The computer is docked, according to information provided by the user. This value is a combination of the DOCKINFO_USER_SUPPLIED and DOCKINFO_DOCKED flags.
DOCKINFO_USER_UNDOCKED
0x6
The computer is undocked, according to information provided by the user. This value is a combination of the DOCKINFO_USER_SUPPLIED and DOCKINFO_UNDOCKED flags.

szHwProfileGuid

The globally unique identifier (GUID) string for the current hardware profile. The string returned by GetCurrentHwProfile encloses the GUID in curly braces, {}; for example:

{12340001-4980-1920-6788-123456789012}

You can use this string as a registry subkey under your application's configuration settings key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER. This enables you to store settings for each hardware profile.

szHwProfileName

The display name for the current hardware profile.
