Description:

The snd_switch_t structure describes the switches for a mixer. You can fill this structure by calling snd_ctl_mixer_switch_read() .

The members include:

iface
The audio interface associated with the switch.
device
The device number associated with the switch.
channel
Currently only set to 0.
name
The text name of the switch.
type
The kind of switch. The following types are supported:
SND_SW_TYPE_BOOLEAN
A simple on and off switch. See the enable union member.
SND_TYPE_BYTE
An 8-bit value constrained between a minimum and maximum setting. See the byte union member.
SND_TYPE_WORD
A 16-bit value constrained between a minimum and maximum setting. See the word union member.
SND_TYPE_DWORD
A 32-bit value constrained between a minimum and maximum setting. See the dword union member.
SND_TYPE_LIST
A 32-bit value selected from a list of values. See the list union member. The items_cnt argument is the number of valid items in the array.
SND_TYPE_STRING_11
An array of string selections with a maximum length of 11 bytes. The strings_cnt argument is the number of valid strings in the array. The selection argument is the index of the selected string.
subtype
The switch's subtype. The following types are supported:
SND_SW_SUBTYPE_DEC
Display the value in decimal notation.
SND_SW_SUBTYPE_HEXA
Display the value in hexadecimal notation.
