SystemParameters.IsMousePresent Property

Gets a value that indicates whether a mouse is installed.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public static bool IsMousePresent { get; }
<object property="{x:Static SystemParameters.IsMousePresent}"/>

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if a mouse is installed; otherwise, false.

This value is rarely false, because virtual mice are supported and because some systems detect the presence of the port, instead of a mouse.

Maps to SM_MOUSEPRESENT. See GetSystemMetrics.
