Getting descriptors and endpoints from USB

The usb class contains several subclasses providing access to the interfaces, descriptors, and endpoints of the usb device. The subclasses included are:

USB descriptor report all of the device's attributes. An endpoint is a specific type of descriptor that describes the terminus of a communication flow between the host and the device.

The InterfaceList class iterates over each Interface within the usb device. Each Interface then contains:

  • DescriptorList through GetDescriptorList()
  • EndpointList through GetEndpointList()

These methods allow access to all the descriptors and endpoints of the interface.

The hierarchy of these subclasses can be seen in Figure 1.

Examples

Receiving Descriptors from USB

These examples iterate through all the descriptors in a USB device. The example iterates through all of the USB Interfaces and then iterates through all the descriptors in each interface.

Range-based for loop

std::optional<InterfaceList> interface_list;

status = InterfaceList::Create(my_client, true, &interface_list);

if (status != ZX_OK) {
    ...
}

for (auto& interface : *interface_list) {

    for (auto& descriptor : interface.GetDescriptorList()) {
        ...
    }
}

Manual for loop

std::optional<InterfaceList> interface_list;

status = InterfaceList::Create(my_client, true, &interface_list);

if (status != ZX_OK) {
    ...
}

for (auto& interface : *interface_list) {

    auto dList_itr = interface.GetDescriptorList().begin(); // or cbegin().

    do {
        ...
    } while (++dList_itr != interface.GetDescriptorList().end());
}
