ISensorManager interface

Provides methods for discovering and retrieving available sensors and a method to request sensor manager events.

Members

The ISensorManager interface inherits from the IUnknown interface but does not have additional members.

EventDescription
GetSensorByID Retrieves a pointer to the specified sensor.
GetSensorsByCategory Retrieves a collection containing all sensors associated with the specified category.
GetSensorsByType Retrieves a collection containing all sensors associated with the specified type.
RequestPermissions Opens a system dialog box to request user permission to access sensor data.
SetEventSink Specifies the interface through which to receive sensor manager event notifications.

 

Remarks

You retrieve a pointer to this interface by calling the COM CoCreateInstance method. If group policy does not allow creation of this object, CoCreateInstance will return HRESULT_FROM_WIN32 (ERROR_ACCESS_DISABLED_BY_POLICY).

Examples

The following example code creates an instance of the sensor manager.


// Create the sensor manager.
hr = CoCreateInstance(CLSID_SensorManager, 
                        NULL, CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER,
                        IID_PPV_ARGS(&pSensorManager));

if(hr == HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_ACCESS_DISABLED_BY_POLICY))
{
    // Unable to retrieve sensor manager due to 
    // group policy settings. Alert the user.
}
