Adopted By: The event system
Declared In: driverkit/eventProtocols.h

Protocol Description

Display drivers use the messages in the IOScreenRegistration protocol to register and unregister themselves with the event system. These methods are called by IODisplay in response to an getIntValues:forParameter:count: call that specifies the "IO_Framebuffer_Register" parameter.

You shouldn't need to invoke the methods in this protocol, because they're already invoked automatically by IOFrameBufferDisplay and IOSVGADisplay.

Instance Methods

bounds:(Bounds *)bounds
shmem:(void **)address
size:(int *)num

Registers instance as a display driver. Returns a token that's used to refer to the display in other calls to the event system.


Unregisters the instance associated with token as a display driver.
