Provides support for basic, non-directional haptic feedback such as clicks, buzzes, and rumbles that can be tuned through characteristics such as intensity and timing.



Provides a set of well-known haptic waveform types (based on the Haptic Usage Page HID specification.


Provides access to a single haptic input device that can be used to enumerate the haptic waveforms supported by the associated input device and trigger a specific haptic response.


Provides access to the feedback behaviors supported by the haptic input device.


Provides access to a device that supports vibration notifications only.



Specifies the access rights to the vibration device.


The following fully functional samples demonstrate haptic features across various devices.
