WINBIO_REGISTERED_FORMAT structure

The WINBIO_REGISTERED_FORMAT structure specifies a biometric data format.

Syntax


typedef struct _WINBIO_REGISTERED_FORMAT {
  USHORT Owner;
  USHORT Type;
} WINBIO_REGISTERED_FORMAT, *PWINBIO_REGISTERED_FORMAT;

Members

Owner

Specifies format owner.

Type

Specifies format type.

Remarks

For Windows, the format owner is defined as follows:


#define WINBIO_ANSI_381_FORMAT_OWNER    ((USHORT)0x001B)    // INCITS Technical Committee M1

The Type for the standard Windows fingerprint format is:


#define WINBIO_ANSI_381_FORMAT_TYPE     ((USHORT)0x0401)    // ANSI-381

WBDI drivers for fingerprint sensors must support the Owner and Type for the Windows fingerprint data format. The Windows Biometric Service (WBS) verifies that a sensor minimally supports the Windows fingerprint raw data format. Windows defines this standard raw data format to allow ISVs to write engine adapters that can take input from any sensor. Each engine should have a capability to support at least this format, but it can specify a different format as a preferred raw format.

No format owner or type are defined as follows:


#define WINBIO_NO_FORMAT_OWNER_AVAILABLE    ((USHORT)0)
#define WINBIO_NO_FORMAT_TYPE_AVAILABLE     ((USHORT)0)


Requirements

Version

Available in Windows 7 and later versions of Windows.
