EvtInterruptDisable function

[Applies to KMDF and UMDF]

A driver's EvtInterruptDisable event callback function disables a specified hardware interrupt.



NTSTATUS EvtInterruptDisable(
  _In_  WDFINTERRUPT Interrupt,
  _In_  WDFDEVICE AssociatedDevice
{ ... }


Interrupt [in]

A handle to a framework interrupt object.

AssociatedDevice [in]

A handle to the framework device object that the driver passed to WdfInterruptCreate.

Return value

The EvtInterruptDisable callback function must return STATUS_SUCCESS or another status value for which NT_SUCCESS(status) equals TRUE if the function encounters no errors. Otherwise, this function must return a status value for which NT_SUCCESS(status) equals FALSE.


To register an EvtInterruptDisable callback function, your driver must place the callback function's address in a WDF_INTERRUPT_CONFIG structure before calling WdfInterruptCreate.

The framework calls the driver's EvtInterruptDisable callback function each time the device leaves its working (D0) state. Additionally, a driver can cause the framework to call the EvtInterruptDisable callback function by calling WdfInterruptDisable.

Before calling the EvtInterruptDisable callback function, the framework raises the processor's IRQL to the device's DIRQL and acquires the spin lock that the driver specified in the interrupt object's WDF_INTERRUPT_CONFIG structure.

Beginning with version 1.11 of KMDF, your driver can provide passive-level interrupt handling. If the driver has requested passive-level interrupt handling, then before calling the EvtInterruptDisable function at IRQL = PASSIVE_LEVEL, the framework acquires the passive-level interrupt lock that the driver configured in the interrupt object's WDF_INTERRUPT_CONFIG structure.

Before calling the EvtInterruptDisable callback function, the framework calls the driver's EvtDeviceD0ExitPreInterruptsDisabled event callback function at IRQL = PASSIVE_LEVEL.

For more information about handling interrupts in framework-based drivers, see Handling Hardware Interrupts.


To define an EvtInterruptDisable callback function, you must first provide a function declaration that identifies the type of callback function you’re defining. Windows provides a set of callback function types for drivers. Declaring a function using the callback function types helps Code Analysis for Drivers, Static Driver Verifier (SDV), and other verification tools find errors, and it’s a requirement for writing drivers for the Windows operating system.

For example, to define an EvtInterruptDisable callback function that is named MyInterruptDisable, use the EVT_WDF_INTERRUPT_DISABLE type as shown in this code example:


Then, implement your callback function:

 MyInterruptDisable (
    WDFINTERRUPT  Interrupt,
    WDFDEVICE  AssociatedDevice

The EVT_WDF_INTERRUPT_DISABLE function type is defined in the Wdfinterrupt.h header file. To more accurately identify errors when you run the code analysis tools, be sure to add the _Use_decl_annotations_ annotation to your function definition. The _Use_decl_annotations_ annotation ensures that the annotations that are applied to the EVT_WDF_INTERRUPT_DISABLE function type in the header file are used. For more information about the requirements for function declarations, see Declaring Functions by Using Function Role Types for KMDF Drivers. For information about _Use_decl_annotations_, see Annotating Function Behavior.
