The InputDevice class encapsulates an individual input device that is available for user input. The types of input devices that can be represented by the InputDevice class include mice, keyboards, and any kind of game controller. The particular type of input device can be determined by calling the InputDevice::GetInputDeviceType function.

Each input device has a tree of input controls attached to it, and this tree always contains at least one item. Iteration over all of the input controls is done by using the InputDevice::GetFirstInputControl and InputDevice::GetNextInputControl functions.
