WinUsb_ControlTransfer function

The WinUsb_ControlTransfer function transmits control data over a default control endpoint.

Syntax


BOOL __stdcall WinUsb_ControlTransfer(
  _In_       WINUSB_INTERFACE_HANDLE InterfaceHandle,
  _In_       WINUSB_SETUP_PACKET SetupPacket,
  _Out_      PUCHAR Buffer,
  _In_       ULONG BufferLength,
  _Out_opt_  PULONG LengthTransferred,
  _In_opt_   LPOVERLAPPED Overlapped
);

Parameters

InterfaceHandle [in]

An opaque handle to an interface in the selected configuration.

To specify the recipient of a control request as the entire device or the first interface, use the handle returned by WinUsb_Initialize. For all other interfaces, obtain the handle to the target interface by calling WinUsb_GetAssociatedInterface, and then call WinUsb_ControlTransfer by specifying the obtained interface handle.

SetupPacket [in]

The 8-byte setup packet of type WINUSB_SETUP_PACKET.

Buffer [out]

A caller-allocated buffer that contains the data to transfer. The length of this buffer must not exceed 4KB.

BufferLength [in]

The number of bytes to transfer, not including the setup packet. This number must be less than or equal to the size, in bytes, of Buffer.

LengthTransferred [out, optional]

A pointer to a ULONG variable that receives the actual number of transferred bytes. If the application does not expect any data to be transferred during the data phase (BufferLength is zero), LengthTransferred can be NULL.

Overlapped [in, optional]

An optional pointer to an OVERLAPPED structure, which is used for asynchronous operations. If this parameter is specified, WinUsb_ControlTransfer immediately returns, and the event is signaled when the operation is complete. If Overlapped is not supplied, the WinUsb_ControlTransfer function transfers data synchronously.

Return value

WinUsb_ControlTransfer returns TRUE if the operation succeeds. Otherwise, this routine returns FALSE, and the caller can retrieve the logged error by calling GetLastError.

GetLastError can return one of the following error codes.

Return codeDescription
ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE

The caller passed NULL in the InterfaceHandle parameter.

ERROR_NOT_ENOUGH_MEMORY

Indicates that there is insufficient memory to perform the operation.

 

Remarks

A control request is always sent by the host to the default endpoint of a USB device but the recipient of the request can be the entire device, an interface, or an endpoint in the selected alternate setting. In the WinUsb_ControlTransfer call, the application must indicate the recipient through two parameters: InterfaceHandle and SetupPacket.

If the recipient of a control request is the entire device, the first interface, or any endpoint in that interface, the application must use the handle returned by WinUsb_Initialize. If the recipient is any other interface or its endpoint, then the application must obtain the WinUSB handle that is associated with the target interface by calling WinUsb_GetAssociatedInterface, and then call WinUsb_ControlTransfer by specifying the obtained interface handle.

As per Section 9.3 of the official USB specification, the setup token of a control transfer contains information about the request. For a WinUSB application, that setup token is described by using the WINUSB_SETUP_PACKET structure.

Within the setup token, bmRequestType and wIndex fields are used to indicate the recipient of the request. Those fields correspond to RequestType and Index members of WINUSB_SETUP_PACKET, respectively.

The lowest two bits of RequestType indicate the recipient of the request. The recipient can be the device, an interface, endpoint, or other (for vendor request). Depending on the recipient, the lower byte of Index indicates the device-defined index of the recipient. The value of Index depends on the type of request. For example, for standard control requests, the value is 0, or indicates the interface or endpoint number. For certain types of standard requests, such as a GET_DESCRIPTOR request to obtain a string descriptor, the Index value indicates the Language ID.

If the recipient is the device, the application must set RequestType and Index values. The lowest two bits of RequestType value must be 0. The lower byte of Index value depends on the type of request. The InterfaceHandle must be the WinUSB handle returned by WinUsb_Initialize.

If the recipient of the request is an interface, the application must set the lowest two bits of RequestType to 0x01. The application is not required to set the lower byte of Index for any type of request. For standard, class, and vendor requests, Winusb.sys sets the value to the interface number of the target interface. The InterfaceHandle must be associated with the target interface. The application can obtain that handle by calling WinUsb_GetAssociatedInterface.

If the recipient is an endpoint, the application must set the lowest two bits of RequestType to 0x02 and lower byte of Index to the endpoint address. In this case, InterfaceHandle is associated with the interface that contains the endpoint. The application can obtain that handle by calling WinUsb_GetAssociatedInterface.
