Raw Input - Usage pages?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone got a list, or know where to get a list, of all the usage pages used by Windows HIDs? I've looked on MSDN, and there's only one or two. Call it morbid curiosity, but I'd like to know what Windows can and can't access

Thanks for that, my point exactly is that Windows doesn't seem to want us to use raw input, or at least to make it rather difficult. The second link especially is most helpful, so cheers

Something that's not listed in that table is usage page 1, usage 8, which is 6DOF devices such as Space Navigator, if you happen to be interested in those.

Raw input is ugly and badly documented on purpose. Your guess is right, you are not supposed to use it at all (mostly because raw input is just that... RAW, there is no calibration, no mouse ballistics, no key repeat, no remapping, nothing).

However, for some applications or some devices, it is nevertheless still the best (or only) way to do it.

Cheers, Samoth, that's exactly what I figured. Nonetheless... do you know what the others might be? Or where I might find them? I'm Googling right now...
