HID

HID (Human Interface Device) is a device class and API used for USB and Bluetooth devices.

 

Docklight Scripting supports HID access via VID / PID (vendor ID / product ID) or the full Windows USB device path. Docklight Scripting allows binary and text-oriented data transfers via HID Input and Output Reports.  

 

A common application (besides standard Windows keyboard/mouse integration) for the HID device class are Embedded Devices with a custom protocol for simple data transfer, e.g. measurement gauges or sensors
