DEV_BROADCAST_DEVICEINTERFACE_W structure (dbt.h)

Contains information about a class of devices.

Syntax

typedef struct _DEV_BROADCAST_DEVICEINTERFACE_W {
  DWORD   dbcc_size;
  DWORD   dbcc_devicetype;
  DWORD   dbcc_reserved;
  GUID    dbcc_classguid;
  wchar_t dbcc_name[1];
} DEV_BROADCAST_DEVICEINTERFACE_W, *PDEV_BROADCAST_DEVICEINTERFACE_W;

Members

dbcc_size

The size of this structure, in bytes. This is the size of the members plus the actual length of the dbcc_name string (the null character is accounted for by the declaration of dbcc_name as a one-character array.)

dbcc_devicetype

Set to DBT_DEVTYP_DEVICEINTERFACE.

dbcc_reserved

Reserved; do not use.

dbcc_classguid

The GUID for the interface device class.

dbcc_name

A null-terminated string that specifies the name of the device.

When this structure is returned to a window through the WM_DEVICECHANGE message, the dbcc_name string is converted to ANSI as appropriate. Services always receive a Unicode string, whether they call RegisterDeviceNotificationW or RegisterDeviceNotificationA.

Remarks

Note

The dbt.h header defines DEV_BROADCAST_DEVICEINTERFACE as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
