Error codes in the SDK
All SDK error codes are documented in our C API documentation. The following overview shows you how to find what you're looking for.
There are 2 groups of errors you should cover:
These are errors that the reader may return when executing a BRP command. For a full list, see the device error overview. Here, you can look for the errors related to the command you're executing.
The command group name is included in the error name:
These are errors that occur during the communication between the application and the reader or when calling a function of the BRP communication library with an invalid parameter.
For a full list, see the communication error overview, section BRP_ERR_XXX.
To investigate an error thrown by the SDK, you have 2 options:
Map error code to name
Use the function brp_map_errcode() to retrieve the error name. You can then search for the name in the C API documentation.
This feature requires SDK v3.05 or above.
Search by numeric code
The first 16 bits of the numeric error code represent the error group:
- 0x0001 represents a device error. Look for the last 16 bits in the device error overview.
- Everything else is a communication error. Look for the last 16 bits in the communication error overview, section BRP_ERR_XXX.
