Used to determine if a particular device provided by HID Manager is a force feedback device.


func FFIsForceFeedback(_ hidDevice: io_service_t) -> HRESULT



Pointer to a HID device object to be tested for force feedback support.

When you are finished with the device, FFReleaseDevice must be called on the reference received in this function to dispose of the API device object.

Creates a new API device object from an OS object in preparation to use the device for force feedback.

func FFDeviceReleaseEffect(FFDeviceObjectReference!, FFEffectObjectReference!) -> HRESULT

Disposes of an API effect object created with FFDeviceCreateEffect.

func FFEffectDownload(FFEffectObjectReference!) -> HRESULT

Places the effect on the device. If the effect is already on the device, the existing effect is updated to match the values set by the FFEffectSetParameters method.

func FFEffectStart(FFEffectObjectReference!, UInt32, FFEffectStartFlag) -> HRESULT

Begins playing an effect. If the effect is already playing, it is restarted from the beginning. If the effect has not been downloaded or has been modified since its last download, it is downloaded before being started. This default behavior can be suppressed by passing the FFES_NODOWNLOAD flag.

func FFEffectUnload(FFEffectObjectReference!) -> HRESULT

Removes the effect from the device. If the effect is playing, it is automatically stopped before it is unloaded.

func FFReleaseDevice(FFDeviceObjectReference!) -> HRESULT
