Function Documentation

IUNKNOWN_AddRef()

  1. int IUNKNOWN_AddRef ([IUnknown]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-IUnknown.md)* iUnknown)

Description:

Increments the reference count in this IUnknown interface.

This function is called in QueryInterface. Do not call this function in the IUnknown interface. When the QueryInterface function is re-implemented, you need to call this function in the new QueryInterface.**

The system does not provide a lock to protect functions. Therefore, you need to re-implement functions if multiple developers are using them.

Parameters:

IUNKNOWN_QueryInterface()

  1. int IUNKNOWN_QueryInterface ([IUnknown]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-IUnknown.md)* iUnknown,int ver,void** target )

Description:

Queries the IUnknown interfaces of a specified version (downcasting).

After obtaining the IUnknown interface object, the function caller uses QueryInterface to convert the object to the required subclass type. The system converts DEFAULT_VERSION into the subclass type required by the caller. If the type conversion requirements cannot be met, you need to re-implement this function.

Parameters:

Name

Description

iUnknownIndicates the pointer to the IUnknown interface.
versionIndicates the version of the IUnknown interface object to be converted.
targetIndicates the IUnknown subclass type required by the caller. This is an output parameter.

Returns:

Returns EC_SUCCESS if the conversion is successful; returns other error codes if the conversion fails.

IUNKNOWN_Release()

  1. int IUNKNOWN_Release ([IUnknown]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-IUnknown.md)* iUnknown)

Description:

Releases a reference to an IUnknown interface that is no longer used.

In the default implementation provided by the system, if the reference count is 0, the memory of the IUnknown interface object and implementation object is not released. If the memory of the IUnknown interface object and implementation object is dynamically allocated, this function needs to be re-implemented. If the reference count is 0, the memory of the IUnknown interface object and implementation object is released.

Parameters:

Name

Description

iUnknownIndicates the pointer to the IUnknown interface object.

Returns:

** Indicates the number of IUnknown interface objects that are referenced after the current reference is released.**

SAMGR_Bootstrap()

  1. void SAMGR_Bootstrap (void)

Description:

Starts system services and features.

This function is called in the main function to start all services when an independent process is developed. This function is called after the dynamic library (containing system services and features) is loaded during system running.

Attention:

This function cannot be called frequently. Otherwise, problems such as repeated service startup may occur. It is recommended that this function be called once in the main function or after the dynamic library is loaded.

SAMGR_GetInstance()

  1. [SamgrLite]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-SamgrLite.md)* SAMGR_GetInstance (void)

Description:

Obtains the singleton Samgr instance.

You need to call this function before using the Samgr capabilities.

Returns:

Returns the pointer to the singleton instance SamgrLite.

Parameters:

Name

Description

identityIndicates the pointer to the ID of the feature or service that processes the message.
requestIndicates the pointer to the request.
handlerIndicates the function handling the response. If the value is NULL, no response is required.

Returns:

Returns EC_SUCCESS if the request is sent successfully; returns other error codes if the request fails to be sent. The caller needs to release the memory applied in the request.

SAMGR_SendResponse()

  1. int32 SAMGR_SendResponse (const[Request]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-Request.md)* request,const[Response]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-Response.md)* response )

Description:

Sends a response after processing a request.

This function is called to send a response after processing a request by MessageHandle of a service or OnMessage of a feature.

Parameters:

Name

Description

requestIndicates the pointer to the original request.
responseIndicates the pointer to the response content.

Returns:

Returns EC_SUCCESS if the response is sent successfully; returns other error codes if the response fails to be sent.

Attention:

  • This function can be called only in MessageHandle or OnMessage.
  • The request must be the original one passed from MessageHandle or OnMessage. Otherwise, a memory exception occurs.
  • When the caller sends a request, the handler callback function must be carried.
  • The response is sent to the message queue of the service to which the requester belongs for processing. Therefore, the requester should wait for the response in non-blocking mode.

SAMGR_SendResponseByIdentity()

  1. int32 SAMGR_SendResponseByIdentity (const[Identity]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-Identity.md)* id,const[Request]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-Request.md)* request,const[Response]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-Response.md)* response )

Description:

Sends a response to a specified service or feature after processing the original request. (Customized function for bootstrap)

This function is called to send a response after processing a request by MessageHandle of a service or OnMessage of a feature. This function can be customized to implement phased startup of different types of services.

Parameters:

Name

Description

idIndicates the pointer to the ID of a service or feature. The response is sent to the thread of the service or feature for processing.
requestIndicates the pointer to the original request.
responseIndicates the pointer to the response content.

Returns:

Returns EC_SUCCESS if the response is sent successfully; returns other error codes if the response fails to be sent.

Attention:

  • This function can be called only in MessageHandle or OnMessage.
  • The request must be the original one passed from MessageHandle or OnMessage. Otherwise, a memory exception occurs.
  • When the caller sends a request, the handler callback function must be carried.
  • The response is sent to the message queue of a specified ID for processing. Therefore, wait for the response in non-blocking mode.

Description:

Sends a request and response of a caller to the feature thread. The handler is directly called to process the request and response without using the message processing functions. (Customized function for the broadcast service)

This function is used to publish topics for the Broadcast service to broadcast messages. The value of reference counting is incremented by one each time this function is called.

Parameters:

Name

Description

idIndicates the pointer to the IDs of services or features, to which the request and response are sent.
requestIndicates the pointer to the request.
respIndicates the pointer to the response.

Returns:

Returns EC_SUCCESS if the request and response are sent successfully; returns other error codes if the request and response fail to be sent.

Attention:

  • Ensure that the thread specified by identity processes the message after all messages are sent. Common practice: Add a lock before sending a request and add the same lock during processing.
  • If NULL is returned, the caller needs to release the memory of the request and response.
  • If the response changes each time when a request is sent, ensure that the response will not be released. (Set len to 0, the data of response will be the resident memory.)

SAMGR_SendSharedRequest()

  1. uint32* SAMGR_SendSharedRequest (const[Identity]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-Identity.md)* identity,const[Request]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-Request.md)* request, uint32 * token,[Handler]($api-api-SmartVision-Devices-Samgr.md#ga5e13d943cc6a87a5c99fe604f3bc01e4) handler )
