Available interfaces and related APIs

There are three GPIO interfaces: one for each device. Each interface is referenced by a GUID.

/* 30ebfbf8-df5f-4d4d-9fc5-a26c7fd1df4a */ DEFINE_GUID(GUID_GPIOBUTTONS_NOTIFY_INTERFACE, 0x30ebfbf8, 0xdf5f, 0x4d4d, 0x9f, 0xc5, 0xa2, 0x6c, 0x7f, 0xd1, 0xdf, 0x4a);

/* 317fc439-3f77-41c8-b09e-08ad63272aa3 */ DEFINE_GUID(GUID_GPIOBUTTONS_LAPTOPSLATE_INTERFACE, 0x317fc439, 0x3f77, 0x41c8, 0xb0, 0x9e, 0x08, 0xad, 0x63, 0x27, 0x2a, 0xa3);

/* a84e689b-0dce-493a-a164-acde05478fc3 */ DEFINE_GUID(GUID_GPIOBUTTONS_DOCKMODE_INTERFACE, 0xa84e689b, 0x0dce, 0x493a, 0xa1, 0x64, 0xac, 0xde, 0x05, 0x47, 0x8f, 0xc3);

The interfaces allow the state of the buttons or indicators to be toggled by calling WriteFile against the respective device interface.

Note  

To prevent potential conflicts between multiple providers, a handle to the device provides exclusive access to the device.

typedef enum {
    GPIO_BUTTON_POWER,
    GPIO_BUTTON_WINDOWS,
    GPIO_BUTTON_VOLUME_UP,
    GPIO_BUTTON_VOLUME_DOWN,
    GPIO_BUTTON_ROTATION_LOCK,
} GPIOBUTTONS_BUTTON_TYPE;
