- void input_event(struct input_dev * dev, unsigned int type, unsigned int code, int value);
- device that generated the event
- type of the event
- event code
- value of the event
This function should be used by drivers implementing various input devices to report input events. See also input_inject_event.
input_event may be safely used right after input device was allocated with input_allocate_device, even before it is registered with input_register_device, but the event will not reach any of the input handlers. Such early invocation of input_event may be used to 'seed' initial state of a switch or initial position of absolute axis, etc.
