HIDClass Support Routines

This section describes the system-supplied routines that user-mode applications, kernel-mode drivers, and HID minidrivers use to operate devices in the HIDClass device setup class.

As a general rule, user-mode applications can use the HidD_Xxx and HidP_Xxx routines described in this section. However, kernel-mode drivers can only call HidP_Xxx routines.

HID minidrivers use only the HidRegisterMinidriver routine.

Routines in this section are listed in alphabetical order.

For Windows 8.1 Microsoft introduced the new Windows.Devices.HumanInterfaceDevice API which lets you write Windows apps that access HID devices.
