FilterOidRequestComplete routine

NDIS calls the FilterOidRequestComplete function to complete a filter driver request that queried or set information in an underlying driver.

Note  You must declare the function by using the FILTER_OID_REQUEST_COMPLETE type. For more information, see the following Examples section.



VOID FilterOidRequestComplete(
  _In_  NDIS_HANDLE FilterModuleContext,
  _In_  PNDIS_OID_REQUEST OidRequest,
  _In_  NDIS_STATUS Status
{ ... }


FilterModuleContext [in]

A handle to the context area for the filter module. The filter driver created and initialized this context area in the FilterAttach function.

OidRequest [in]

A pointer to the NDIS_OID_REQUEST structure that the filter driver previously passed to the NdisFOidRequest function.

Status [in]

The final status of the request set by an underlying driver or by NDIS. This parameter determines what FilterOidRequestComplete does with the information at OidRequest . For a list of the possible status values, see the return values of NdisFOidRequest.

Return value



FilterOidRequestComplete is an optional function. If a filter driver does not use OID requests, it can set the entry point for this function to NULL when it calls the NdisFRegisterFilterDriver function. If a filter driver defines a FilterOidRequest function, it must provide the FilterOidRequestComplete function.

If the NdisFOidRequest function returns NDIS_STATUS_PENDING, NDIS must call the FilterOidRequestComplete function to complete the OID request.

If a filter driver forwarded a request that it received in the FilterOidRequest function, FilterOidRequestComplete should pass the completion status up the driver stack by calling the NdisFOidRequestComplete function. The filter driver must call NdisFreeCloneOidRequest, to free the NDIS_OID_REQUEST structure, before it calls NdisFOidRequestComplete.

A filter driver should keep track of requests that it originates and ensure that it does not call NdisFOidRequestComplete when NDIS calls FilterOidRequestComplete for such requests.

NDIS calls FilterOidRequestComplete at IRQL <= DISPATCH_LEVEL.


To define a FilterOidRequestComplete function, you must first provide a function declaration that identifies the type of function you're defining. Windows provides a set of function types for drivers. Declaring a function using the function types helps Code Analysis for Drivers, Static Driver Verifier (SDV), and other verification tools find errors, and it's a requirement for writing drivers for the Windows operating system.

For example, to define a FilterOidRequestComplete function that is named "MyOidRequestComplete", use the FILTER_OID_REQUEST_COMPLETE type as shown in this code example:


Then, implement your function as follows:

    NDIS_HANDLE  FilterModuleContext,
    PNDIS_OID_REQUEST  OidRequest,
    NDIS_STATUS  Status

The FILTER_OID_REQUEST_COMPLETE function type is defined in the Ndis.h header file. To more accurately identify errors when you run the code analysis tools, be sure to add the _Use_decl_annotations_ annotation to your function definition. The _Use_decl_annotations_ annotation ensures that the annotations that are applied to the FILTER_OID_REQUEST_COMPLETE function type in the header file are used. For more information about the requirements for function declarations, see Declaring Functions by Using Function Role Types for NDIS Drivers. For information about _Use_decl_annotations_, see Annotating Function Behavior.



Supported in NDIS 6.0 and later.
