SERIALKEYS structure

Contains information about the SerialKeys accessibility feature, which interprets data from a communication aid attached to a serial port as commands causing the system to simulate keyboard and mouse input.

Syntax


typedef struct tagSERIALKEYS {
  UINT  cbSize;
  DWORD dwFlags;
  LPSTR lpszActivePort;
  LPSTR lpszPort;
  UINT  iBaudRate;
  UINT  iPortState;
  UINT  iActive;
} SERIALKEYS, *LPSERIALKEYS;

Members

cbSize

Type: UINT

Specifies the structure size, in bytes.

dwFlags

Type: DWORD

Specifies a combination of the following values:

ValueMeaning
SERKF_AVAILABLE
0x00000002

The SerialKeys feature is available.

SERKF_INDICATOR
0x00000004

A visual indicator is displayed when the SerialKeys feature is on. This value is not currently used and is ignored.

SERKF_SERIALKEYSON
0x00000001

The SerialKeys feature is on.

 

lpszActivePort

Type: LPSTR

Points to a string that contains the name of the serial port that receives input from the communication aid when the SerialKeys feature is on. If no port is being used, this member is NULL. If this member is "Auto", the system watches all unused serial ports for input from communication aids.

lpszPort

Type: LPSTR

Reserved; must be NULL.

iBaudRate

Type: UINT

Specifies the baud rate setting for the serial port specified by the lpszActivePort member. This member should be set to one of the CBR_ values defined in the winbase.h header file. If lpszActivePort is NULL, this member is zero.

iPortState

Type: UINT

Specifies the state of the port specified by the lpszActivePort member. If lpszActivePort is NULL, iPortState is zero; otherwise, it is one of the following values:

ValueMeaning
0

All input on this port is ignored by the SerialKeys feature.

1

Input on this port is watched for SerialKeys activation sequences when no other application has the port open.

2

All input on this port is treated as SerialKeys commands.

 

iActive

Type: UINT

Specifies the active port.

Remarks

An application uses this structure when calling the SystemParametersInfo function with the SPI_GETSERIALKEYS or SPI_SETSERIALKEYS value. When using SPI_GETSERIALKEYS, an application must specify the cbSize, lpszActivePort, and lpszPort members of the SERIALKEYS structure; the SystemParametersInfo function fills the remaining members. An application must specify all structure members when using the SPI_SETSERIALKEYS value.
