SetupDiGetClassPropertyEx function

The SetupDiGetClassPropertyEx function retrieves a class property for a device setup class or a device interface class on a local or remote computer.

Syntax


BOOL SetupDiGetClassPropertyEx(
  _In_        const GUID *ClassGuid,
  _In_        const DEVPROPKEY *PropertyKey,
  _Out_       DEVPROPTYPE *PropertyType,
  _Out_opt_   PBYTE PropertyBuffer,
  _In_        DWORD PropertyBufferSize,
  _Out_opt_   PDWORD RequiredSize,
  _In_        DWORD Flags,
  _In_opt_    PCTSTR MachineName,
  _Reserved_  PVOID Reserved
);

Parameters

ClassGuid [in]

A pointer to a GUID that identifies the device setup class or device interface class for which to retrieve a device property for the device class. For information about specifying the class type, see the Flags parameter.

PropertyKey [in]

A pointer to a DEVPROPKEY structure that represents the device property key of the requested device class property.

PropertyType [out]

A pointer to a DEVPROPTYPE-typed variable that receives the property-data-type identifier of the requested device class property, where the property-data-type identifier is the bitwise OR between a base-data-type identifier and, if the base data type is modified, a property-data-type modifier.

PropertyBuffer [out, optional]

A pointer to a buffer that receives the requested device class property. SetupDiGetClassPropertyEx retrieves the requested property value only if the buffer is large enough to hold all the property value data. The pointer can be NULL. If the pointer is set to NULL and RequiredSize is supplied, SetupDiGetClassPropertyEx returns the size of the device class property, in bytes, in *RequiredSize.

PropertyBufferSize [in]

The size, in bytes, of the PropertyBuffer buffer. If PropertyBuffer is set to NULL, PropertyBufferSize must be set to zero.

RequiredSize [out, optional]

A pointer to a DWORD-typed variable that receives either the size, in bytes, of the device class property if the property is retrieved or the required buffer size if the buffer is not large enough. This pointer can be set to NULL.

Flags [in]

One of the following values, which specifies whether the class is a device setup class or a device interface class:

DICLASSPROP_INSTALLER

ClassGuid specifies a device setup class. This flag cannot be used with DICLASSPROP_INTERFACE.

DICLASSPROP_INTERFACE

ClassGuid specifies a device interface class. This flag cannot be used with DICLASSPROP_INSTALLER.

MachineName [in, optional]

A pointer to a NULL-terminated string that contains the UNC name, including the "\\" prefix, of a computer. The pointer can be set to NULL. If MachineName is NULL, SetupDiGetClassPropertyEx retrieves the requested device class property from the local computer.

Reserved

This parameter must be set to NULL.

Return value

SetupDiGetClassPropertyEx returns TRUE if it is successful. Otherwise, it returns FALSE, and the logged error can be retrieved by calling GetLastError.

The following table includes some of the more common error codes that this function might log.

Return codeDescription
ERROR_INVALID_FLAGS

The value of Flags is not zero.

ERROR_INVALID_CLASS

The device setup class that is specified by ClassGuid is not valid. This error can occur only if the DICLASSPROP_INSTALLER flag is specified.

ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER

An unspecified parameter is not valid.

ERROR_INVALID_REG_PROPERTY

The property key that is supplied by PropertyKey is not valid.

ERROR_INVALID_REFERENCE_STRING

The device interface reference string is not valid. This error can be returned if the DICLASSPROP_INTERFACE flag is specified.

ERROR_INVALID_DATA

An unspecified internal data value was not valid.

ERROR_INVALID_USER_BUFFER

A user buffer is not valid. One possibility is that PropertyBuffer is NULL, and PropertyBufferSize is not zero.

ERROR_INVALID_MACHINENAME

The computer name that is specified by MachineName is not valid.

ERROR_NO_SUCH_INTERFACE_CLASS

The device interface class that is specified by ClassGuid does not exist. This error can occur only if the DICLASSPROP_INTERFACE flag is specified.

ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER

An internal data buffer that was passed to a system call was too small.

ERROR_NOT_ENOUGH_MEMORY

There was not enough system memory available to complete the operation.

ERROR_NOT_FOUND

The requested device property does not exist.

ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED

The caller does not have Administrator privileges.

 

Remarks

SetupDiGetClassPropertyEx is part of the unified device property model.

SetupAPI supports only a Unicode version of SetupDiGetClassPropertyEx.

A caller of SetupDiGetClassPropertyEx must be a member of the Administrators group to set a device interface property.

To obtain the device property keys that represent the device properties that are set for a device class on a remote computer, call SetupDiGetClassPropertyKeysEx.

To retrieve a device class property on a local computer, call SetupDiGetClassProperty.

To set a device class property on a local computer, call SetupDiSetClassProperty, and to set a device class property on a remote computer, call SetupDiSetClassPropertyEx.

Requirements
