Defining Automation Tables

An automation table for a filter, pin, or node is what describes the properties and methods supported by the filter, pin, or node. If a BDA minidriver supplies a property or method handler that is already implemented by AVStream, the BDA minidriver's implementation supersedes AVStream's.

A BDA minidriver should define arrays of property and method sets and then define automation tables for those set arrays so that the minidriver can automatically process requests. See the Determining BDA Device Topology section for an example of how the minidriver also defines a property set to which this section refers.

The following code snippet shows examples of filter automation tables and arrays of property and method sets:


//
//  Filter Level Property Set supported
//
//  This array defines a property set supported by the
//  filter that is exposed by the minidriver.
//
DEFINE_KSPROPERTY_SET_TABLE(FilterPropertySets)
{
    DEFINE_KSPROPERTY_SET
    (
        &KSPROPSETID_BdaTopology,                   // Set
        SIZEOF_ARRAY(FilterTopologyProperties),     // PropertiesCount
        FilterTopologyProperties,                   // PropertyItems
        0,                                          // FastIoCount
        NULL                                        // FastIoTable
    )
};
//
//  Filter Level Method Sets supported
//
//  This array defines method sets supported by the
//  filter that is exposed by the minidriver.
//
DEFINE_KSMETHOD_SET_TABLE(FilterMethodSets)
{
    DEFINE_KSMETHOD_SET
    (
        &KSMETHODSETID_BdaChangeSync,               // Set
        SIZEOF_ARRAY(BdaChangeSyncMethods),         // MethodsCount
        BdaChangeSyncMethods,                       // MethodItems
        0,                                          // FastIoCount
        NULL                                        // FastIoTable
    ),
    DEFINE_KSMETHOD_SET
    (
        &KSMETHODSETID_BdaDeviceConfiguration,      // Set
        SIZEOF_ARRAY(BdaDeviceConfigurationMethods),// MethodsCount
        BdaDeviceConfigurationMethods,              // MethodItems
        0,                                          // FastIoCount
        NULL                                        // FastIoTable
    )
};
//
//  Filter Automation Table
//
//  Lists all arrays of property and method sets for the filter that 
//  is exposed by the minidriver.
//
DEFINE_KSAUTOMATION_TABLE(FilterAutomation) {
    DEFINE_KSAUTOMATION_PROPERTIES(FilterPropertySets),
    DEFINE_KSAUTOMATION_METHODS(FilterMethodSets),
    DEFINE_KSAUTOMATION_EVENTS_NULL
};

The following code snippet shows an example of a node automation table and an array of property sets:


//
//  RF tuner node property set supported
//
//  This array defines a property set supported by the
//  RF Tuner Node associated with the antenna input pin.
//
DEFINE_KSPROPERTY_SET_TABLE(RFNodePropertySets)
{
    DEFINE_KSPROPERTY_SET
    (
        &KSPROPSETID_BdaFrequencyFilter,            // Set
        SIZEOF_ARRAY(RFNodeFrequencyProperties),    // PropertiesCount
        RFNodeFrequencyProperties,                  // PropertyItems
        0,                                          // FastIoCount
        NULL                                        // FastIoTable
    )
};
//
//  Radio frequency tuner node automation table
//
//
DEFINE_KSAUTOMATION_TABLE(RFTunerNodeAutomation) {
    DEFINE_KSAUTOMATION_PROPERTIES( RFNodePropertySets),
    DEFINE_KSAUTOMATION_METHODS_NULL,
    DEFINE_KSAUTOMATION_EVENTS_NULL
};
