Identify Specific Mouse

Aug 16, 2014 at 6:27 PM
Hi Everyone,

This project does almost everything I need for my own project. What I want to do is absorb all movement from a specific mouse on the system. This project lets me globally hook the mouse movement and absorb it if I want to. My question is whether I can also identify the specific mouse that created the movement.

I am aware of DirectInput (deprecated) and RawInput, which allows me to ID the mouse, but not to globally hook or absorb correctly.

Can anyone here provide advice on whether this library can offer this functionality, even if it requires me to code it myself: am most happy to contribute,


PS: As a little aside, I am absolutely dismayed by how ridiculously complicated it is to achieve what I want to do: capture mouse movement from a specific mouse and use it in my application :(
