SDL_hid_read_timeout

Read an Input report from a HID device with timeout.

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

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.

milliseconds

timeout in milliseconds or -1 for blocking wait.

Return Value

Returns the actual number of bytes read and -1 on error. If no packet was available to be read within the timeout period, this function returns 0.
