Function Reference


Retrieves information about the raw input device

#include <WinAPISys.au3>
_WinAPI_GetRawInputDeviceInfo ( $hDevice, $pBuffer, $iLength, $iFlag )


$hDevice A handle to the raw input device. This comes from the "lParam" of the WM_INPUT message, from the
"$hDevice" member of the $tagRAWINPUTHEADER structure, or from the _WinAPI_EnumRawInputDevices() function.
$pBuffer A pointer to the buffer that receives an information specified by a command flag (see below).
If this parameter is 0, the function returns the required size of the buffer, in bytes or characters.
$iLength The size of the buffer, in bytes. For $RIDI_DEVICENAME only, this value is the character count,
including null-terminating character (not the byte count).
$iFlag The command flag that specifies what information will be returned.
This parameter can be one of the following values.

Return Value

Success: The number of bytes or characters required or copied into the buffer.
Failure: 0 and sets the @error flag to non-zero, call _WinAPI_GetLastError() to get extended error information.
