Test Most Any HID device
AnyHID is designed to make your job easy. Just about everything about it is designed to let you click on something in a list, as if to say "Give me THAT one."
AnyHID lets you browse through all USB Human Interface Device (or USB HID for short) devices that are connected to the PC, and see everything that's in the HID interface of any device. And we mean you can see EVERYTHING:
- What variables are present, and in which Reports
- USB "Usage" information, that tells what the variable is used for
- How big (number of bits) each
- And lots more…
If you find you had forgotten to connect the right device before starting the program, no problem: just connect it now, AnyHID will discover it automatically, and update the list of available USB HID devices.
You can then exercise most any USB HID device completely -- even if you didn't design the device yourself!
About the only types of USB HID devices that AnyHID cannot test are official USB mice and keyboard devices. That's because Windows reserves those for exclusive use by the operating system: no user mode program can open a mouse or keyboard for direct I/O.
(If you are developing a mouse or a keyboard program, that fact can give you a lot of trouble. Our HIDmaker FS product can help you with special techniques, tutorials, and example projects for developing keyboard, mouse, composite USB keyboard / mouse devices.)
