Read an Input report from a HID device.


int SDL_hid_read(SDL_hid_device *dev, unsigned char *data, size_t length);

Function Parameters

dev A device handle returned from SDL_hid_open().
data A buffer to put the read data into.
length The number of bytes to read. For devices with multiple reports, make sure to read an extra byte for the report number.

Return Value

Returns the actual number of bytes read and -1 on error. If no packet was available to be read and the handle is in non-blocking mode, this function returns 0.


Input reports are returned to the host through the INTERRUPT IN endpoint. The first byte will contain the Report number if the device uses numbered reports.


This function is available since SDL 3.0.0.
