CM_Get_Device_Interface_ListA function

The CM_Get_Device_Interface_List function retrieves a list of device interface instances that belong to a specified device interface class.

Syntax

CMAPI CONFIGRET CM_Get_Device_Interface_ListA(
  LPGUID      InterfaceClassGuid,
  DEVINSTID_A pDeviceID,
  PZZSTR      Buffer,
  ULONG       BufferLen,
  ULONG       ulFlags
);

Parameters

InterfaceClassGuid

Supplies a GUID that identifies a device interface class.

pDeviceID

Caller-supplied pointer to a NULL-terminated string that represents a device instance ID. If specified, the function retrieves device interfaces that are supported by the device for the specified class. If this value is NULL, or if it points to a zero-length string, the function retrieves all interfaces that belong to the specified class.

Buffer

Caller-supplied pointer to a buffer that receives multiple, NULL-terminated Unicode strings, each representing the symbolic link name of an interface instance.

BufferLen

Caller-supplied value that specifies the length, in characters, of the buffer pointed to by Buffer. Call CM_Get_Device_Interface_List_Size to determine the required buffer size.

ulFlags

Contains one of the following caller-supplied flags:

CM_GET_DEVICE_INTERFACE_LIST_ALL_DEVICES

The function provides a list containing device interfaces associated with all devices that match the specified GUID and device instance ID, if any.

CM_GET_DEVICE_INTERFACE_LIST_PRESENT

The function provides a list containing device interfaces associated with devices that are currently active, and which match the specified GUID and device instance ID, if any.

Return Value

If the operation succeeds, the function returns CR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, it returns one of the error codes with the CR_ prefix as defined in Cfgmgr32.h.

The following table includes some of the more common error codes that this function might return.

Return code Description
CR_BUFFER_SMALL
The Buffer buffer is too small to hold the requested list of device interfaces.

Remarks

Between calling CM_Get_Device_Interface_List_Size to get the size of the list and calling CM_Get_Device_Interface_List to get the list, a new device interface can be added to the system causing the size returned to no longer be valid.  Callers should be robust to that condition and retry getting the size and the list if CM_Get_Device_Interface_List returns CR_BUFFER_SMALL.

Examples

This snippet illustrates retrying getting the size and the list as described in the Remarks section.

    CONFIGRET cr = CR_SUCCESS;
    PWSTR DeviceInterfaceList = NULL;
    ULONG DeviceInterfaceListLength = 0;

    do {
        cr = CM_Get_Device_Interface_List_Size(&DeviceInterfaceListLength,
                                               (LPGUID)&GUID_DEVINTERFACE_VOLUME,
                                               NULL,
                                               CM_GET_DEVICE_INTERFACE_LIST_ALL_DEVICES);

        if (cr != CR_SUCCESS)
        {
            break;
        }

        if (DeviceInterfaceList != NULL) {
            HeapFree(GetProcessHeap(),
                     0,
                     DeviceInterfaceList);
        }

        DeviceInterfaceList = (PWSTR)HeapAlloc(GetProcessHeap(),
                                               HEAP_ZERO_MEMORY,
                                               DeviceInterfaceListLength * sizeof(WCHAR));

        if (DeviceInterfaceList == NULL)
        {
            cr = CR_OUT_OF_MEMORY;
            break;
        }

        cr = CM_Get_Device_Interface_List((LPGUID)&GUID_DEVINTERFACE_VOLUME,
                                          NULL,
                                          DeviceInterfaceList,
                                          DeviceInterfaceListLength,
                                          CM_GET_DEVICE_INTERFACE_LIST_ALL_DEVICES);
    } while (cr == CR_BUFFER_SMALL);

    if (cr != CR_SUCCESS)
    {
        goto Exit;
    }
