MsgBox "This example requires Windows."
if m.FindFirstDevice then
if left(m.Product,3)="RF1" then // my test device
if m.Connect then
// write 9 bytes report
// first byte is report ID plus 8 byte data
MsgBox "Send bytes: "+str(m.SendMessage(s))
loop until lenb(s)>0 // until we got something
MsgBox midb(s,2) // shows result. First byte is ReportID again

For newer development, please use our HIDAPIMBS class.
Updated in version 10.4 of plugins to ignore devices which you don't have permissions to access them. So you will now see devices with VendorID=0 and ProductID=0.
This class can be used in three different ways. First normal with Connect and ReadMessage/SendMessage. Second with InstallListener and SendMessage/Poll functions. Third low level via GetInputReport and SetOutputReport.
