I'm now developing a Bluetooth hid device.
However, when I use pyhidapi to get the product string, it returns None.
After dig in the source code, I found they use HidD_GetProductString to get the product string.
And after asking my first question in the forum, I know that this function currently not support the BLE HID device.
So I changed to use Bluetooth Classic HID but still, no product string can be retrieved.
May I know where do this function gets the product string if the HID device is a Bluetooth Classic HID device?

    Referencing the Bluetooth HID 1.1.1 spec from here: https://www.bluetooth.com/specifications/specs/human-interface-device-profile-1-1-1/

    The product string returned will be the value of the SDP attribute called "Service Name" in table 5.3 (section 5.3.3) of the spec. HidD_GetManufacturerString will return the value of the SDP attribute called "Provider Name". However, note that the spec says that those attributes are optional, so it is possible that your device does not have those attributes.
