This macro sets the HeaderSizemember in the NDIS_OOB_DATAstructure associated with a specified packet descriptor for a subsequent receive indication.



Pointer to a driver-allocated packet descriptor.
Specifies the medium-specific number of bytes in the net packet header.


The HeaderSizemember in NDIS_PACKET_OOB_DATAassociated with a packet descriptor specifies the number of bytes of medium-specific header in the buffer mapped by the initial buffer descriptor chained to the packet descriptor.

A lower-level driver sets this member with this macro in the out-of-band data blocks for the receive packets it subsequently indicates with the NdisMIndicateReceivePacketfunction. Typically, a miniport sets the HeaderSizeonce for each packet descriptor that it allocates with the NdisAllocatePacketfunction for subsequent receive indications, depending on the medium that it selects during initializaiton. If such a driver clears the out-of-band data block with the NDIS_OOB_DATA_FROM_PACKETmacro and the NdisZeroMemoryfunction when it regains ownership of its receive packet descriptors. That driver must call this macro before it reuses each packet descriptor in a subsequent indication.

When such an indication is made, bound protocols can retrieve this information with the NDIS_GET_PACKET_HEADER_SIZEmacro.

A driver that calls this macro runs at IRQL<=DISPATCH_LEVEL.
