SP_DEVINFO_DATA structure

An SP_DEVINFO_DATA structure defines a device instance that is a member of a device information set.

Syntax


typedef struct _SP_DEVINFO_DATA {
  DWORD     cbSize;
  GUID      ClassGuid;
  DWORD     DevInst;
  ULONG_PTR Reserved;
} SP_DEVINFO_DATA, *PSP_DEVINFO_DATA;

Members

cbSize

The size, in bytes, of the SP_DEVINFO_DATA structure. For more information, see the following Remarks section.

ClassGuid

The GUID of the device's setup class.

DevInst

An opaque handle to the device instance (also known as a handle to the devnode).

Some functions, such as SetupDiXxx functions, take the whole SP_DEVINFO_DATA structure as input to identify a device in a device information set. Other functions, such as CM_Xxx functions like CM_Get_DevNode_Status, take this DevInst handle as input.

Reserved

Reserved. For internal use only.

Remarks

An SP_DEVINFO_DATA structure identifies a device in a device information set. For example, when Windows sends a DIF_INSTALLDEVICE request to a class installer and co-installers, it includes a handle to a device information set and a pointer to an SP_DEVINFO_DATA that specifies the particular device. In addition to DIF requests, this structure is also used in some SetupDiXxx functions.

SetupDiXxx functions that take an SP_DEVINFO_DATA structure as a parameter verify that the cbSize member of the supplied structure is equal to the size, in bytes, of the structure. If the cbSize member is not set correctly for an input parameter, the function will fail and set an error code of ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER. If the cbSize member is not set correctly for an output parameter, the function will fail and set an error code of ERROR_INVALID_USER_BUFFER.
