New user...

I've been flipping out about the whiteboard since I saw the video a couple of months ago. I just found the forum today - which is convenient, since I also bought the parts to make an IR pen this week (940nm LED, momentary switch, AA battery - no wires! - all in a few inches of 3/4" copper pipe).

I'm running an older iBook G4 at OS X v.10.3.9, with its built-in bluetooth. I can't ever keep track of which feline each OS X version is... will this work on 10.3.9? I still have to buy myself a WiiMote and I'll be all set to check it out - I might get around to that today.

I'm sorry to tell you that the Java Whiteboard won't work on Panther because it requires Java 1.5+ (available in Tiger and onwards). See this post and my reply for details.

ujs,

Looks like I'm in the clear. The laptop is on 10.4.11, it's the older desktop iMac G4 (one of the hemisphere-with-screen-on-neck ones) that is stuck at 10.3.9. And i jsut got my IR pen working, and got a wiimote today... time to rev this puppy up and see what kind of damage I can do!

Sorry, but the software isn't ready yet to be translated easily. Localizations will probably be available in a future release...

To change the application quickly if you know how to do it:

You can change a lot of the strings by editing the files ending with .properties in the resources folder in each Java package. Some strings are still in the source code though.
In order to do all that, you better download the source code, change the properties-files and the strings in the source code. Then compile and package the application.

Here is an idea, how about when you close or minimize the application it goes to the system tray, when you click on it it does right click/left click toggle (or it changes if you use the 3 second light toggle). I am not a good programmer, but I did find this page off of google

http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2SE/Desktop/javase6/systemtray/

Just a thought.

Easy ways of setting the system tray on Windows or the Dock menu on Mac OS X were introduced with Java 6, but my application is still using Java 5.
Most Macs still run Java 5...

Are you really interested in a Dock/Tray menu or do you just want to toggle "right click/left click"?
What exactly do you mean with "right click/left click toggle"?

If you have to change a bunch of code, or if it breaks compatibility, I wouldn't worry about it. What I was meaning about the toggle, is if you click the tray icon once its a right click if you click it again its back to normal. Seriously you have an awesome program and that would be more of an enhancement than anything else.

I still don't get it. Do you want the right and left mouse buttons to be switched? So that the mouse is moved and the right mouse button is pressed all the time?
Or do you just want to do a single right click and then get back to "normal" operation?

Its a pity that this version depends on BlueCove, which doesnt support BlueSoleil 5.05 which is the only version of Bluesoleil to run on Vista x64.

My mouse smoothing is very simple. It's just averaging the last 7 measurements.
Someone could easily add this feature to the C# app.

Its a pity that this version depends on BlueCove, which doesnt support BlueSoleil 5.05 which is the only version of Bluesoleil to run on Vista x64.

The Bluetooth compatibilities could be better,  I know. But BlueCove is the best library that I currently see.
Do let me know if you know of a better JSR-82 library that works with Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux...

Hello ujs,

Your program is very good. But I'd like one more feature to be perfect. Is it possible after the calibration a window showing the Wiimote's view like on BoonJin's program? This windows makes the calibraton too easy.

And Jason's program (wiimote presenter) intend to join in yours?

Sorry my bad English.

I haven't used Boon Jin's program at all, just saw his screenshots.
I hope to have some time soon to try his program.

It's not possible to integrate Jason's program into mine for technical reasons.
And I also don't plan right now to add those features on my own.

Thanks for the answers. But I saw one problem. I don't know why, but it seems that your program doesn't use the hole view area of the Wiimote. I know that because I used BoonJin's program first and with it I normally calibrated. With the Wiimote on the same position, the calibration failed with your program (I had to put the Wiimote a little far for a good calibration).

PS.: I use Windows XP Professional SP3, Widcomm 5.1.0.1100 Bluetooh Stack and last Java version (6 update 7).
