can Report requests have arbitrary payload sizes?
« on: July 01, 2017, 11:17:56 pm »
for example I have this


    0x85, 0x12,                    //   REPORT_ID (18)
    0x95, 0x83,                    //   REPORT_COUNT (131) -- the max
    0x09, 0x00,                    //   USAGE (Undefined)
    0xb2, 0x02, 0x01,              //   FEATURE (Data,Var,Abs,Buf)
    0xc0,                           // END_COLLECTION

but I must use 132 bytes, can allow this report to accept other size data or do I have to fill with zeros.

HID reports must be of a size defined in the report descriptor. The Windows HID driver will ignore any received reports of other sizes.

That is what my issue was, so was wondering if that was an option. I guess the firmware can always return 1 and tell the driver it got what it needs short of the entire pay load.
