WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES structure

[Applies to KMDF and UMDF]

The WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES structure describes attributes that can be associated with any framework object.

Syntax


typedef struct _WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES {
  ULONG                          Size;
  PFN_WDF_OBJECT_CONTEXT_CLEANUP EvtCleanupCallback;
  PFN_WDF_OBJECT_CONTEXT_DESTROY EvtDestroyCallback;
  WDF_EXECUTION_LEVEL            ExecutionLevel;
  WDF_SYNCHRONIZATION_SCOPE      SynchronizationScope;
  WDFOBJECT                      ParentObject;
  size_t                         ContextSizeOverride;
  PCWDF_OBJECT_CONTEXT_TYPE_INFO ContextTypeInfo;
} WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES, *PWDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES;

Members

Size

The size, in bytes, of this structure.

EvtCleanupCallback

A pointer to the driver's EvtCleanupCallback callback function, or NULL.

EvtDestroyCallback

A pointer to the driver's EvtDestroyCallback callback function, or NULL.

ExecutionLevel

A WDF_EXECUTION_LEVEL-typed value that specifies the maximum IRQL at which the framework will call the object's event callback functions. For a list of framework objects for which the driver can specify an ExecutionLevel value, see WDF_EXECUTION_LEVEL.

SynchronizationScope

A WDF_SYNCHRONIZATION_SCOPE-typed value that specifies how the framework will synchronize execution of the object's event callback functions. For a list of framework objects for which the driver can specify a SynchronizationScope value, see WDF_SYNCHRONIZATION_SCOPE.

ParentObject

A handle to the object's parent object, or NULL if the object does not have a driver-specified parent.

See Summary of Framework Objects for a table that shows the objects that allow a driver-specified parent. The table also shows the default parent of each object.

ContextSizeOverride

If not zero, this value overrides the ContextSize member of the WDF_OBJECT_CONTEXT_TYPE_INFO structure that the ContextTypeInfo member references. This value is optional and can be zero. If the value is not zero, it must specify a size, in bytes, that is larger than the value that is specified for the ContextSize member of the WDF_OBJECT_CONTEXT_TYPE_INFO structure. For more information, see the following Remarks section.

ContextTypeInfo

A pointer to a WDF_OBJECT_CONTEXT_TYPE_INFO structure. The WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES_SET_CONTEXT_TYPE macro sets this pointer.

Remarks

The WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES structure is used as an input argument to several methods that create framework objects.

To initialize a WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES structure, the driver must call WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES_INIT.

Additionally, if you are defining object-specific context information for an object, you must use the WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES_SET_CONTEXT_TYPE macro.

Alternatively, you can use the WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES_INIT_CONTEXT_TYPE macro instead of the WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES_INIT and WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES_SET_CONTEXT_TYPE macros.

For more information about using these macros, see Framework Object Context Space.

Use the ContextSizeOverride member of WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES if you want to create object context space that has a variable length. For example, you might define a context space structure that contains an array, as follows:


typedef struct _MY_REQUEST_CONTEXT {
  ULONG  ByteCount;
  BYTE  Bytes[1];
} MY_REQUEST_CONTEXT, *PMY_REQUEST_CONTEXT;

WDF_DECLARE_CONTEXT_TYPE(MY_REQUEST_CONTEXT);

When your driver creates an object that uses the context space structure, it can use the ContextSizeOverride member to specify the context size that is needed for each individual object. For example, your driver might calculate the number of bytes that are needed in the array from the preceding example and then use ContextSizeOverride to specify the extra bytes, as follows:


WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES MyRequestObjectAttributes;
PMY_REQUEST_CONTEXT pMyContext;

WDF_OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES_INIT_CONTEXT_TYPE(
                                        &MyRequestObjectAttributes,
                                        MY_REQUEST_CONTEXT
                                        );
MyRequestObjectAttributes.ContextSizeOverride =
                          sizeof(MY_REQUEST_CONTEXT) + Num_Extra_Bytes - 1;

The driver can then create an object with a customized context size.


status = WdfRequestCreate(
                          &MyRequestObjectAttributes,
                          ioTarget,
                          &newRequest
                          );
