Supports the ability to determine the capabilities of any connected mouse devices.
The MouseCapabilities class has these types of members:
The MouseCapabilities class has these constructors.
|MouseCapabilities||Initializes a new instance of the MouseCapabilities class.|
The MouseCapabilities class has these properties.
|Read-only||Gets a value indicating whether any of the mice connected to the computer have a scroll wheel that tilts left and right (usually for horizontal scrolling).|
|Read-only||Gets a value that indicates whether a mouse device is detected.|
|Read-only||Gets a value representing the number of buttons on the mouse. If multiple mice are present, it returns the number of buttons of the mouse which has maximum number of buttons.|
|Read-only||Gets a value indicating whether any of the mice connected to the computer has swapped left and right buttons.|
|Read-only||Gets a value indicating whether any of the mice connected to the computer have a scroll wheel that rolls up and down (usually for vertical scrolling).|
The values returned by the properties discussed here are based on the total number of mice connected: Boolean properties return true if one mouse supports a specific capability and numeric properties return the maximum value exposed by all mice.
The Device Capabilities Sample demonstrates how to detect the presence of input devices and retrieve the capabilities and attributes of each device.
