Wiimote Smoothboard / Re: Smoothing for Wiimote Whiteboard 0.2
« on: June 04, 2008, 08:19:10 PM »
hm...I'm not sure what's the cause of your problem. Like you said it may be due to the code change of the mouse simulation from 0.1 to 0.2. I have not tested with a Vista machine yet.

Anyone here have successfully use 0.2 or 0.2 with smoothing on vista?

thanks for the feedback.. :)
I also faced a similar problem when drawing in powerpoint 2003. I will try to find other methods soon.

I will certainly look into your suggestions

Thanks for your super fast testing!  :D

Wiimote Smoothboard / Smoothing for Wiimote Whiteboard 0.2
« on: June 02, 2008, 09:35:33 PM »
I have released the Smoothboard software that is targeted at actual use in lessons and presentations with the focus of ease-of-use.

Smoothboard now comes with built-in annotation feature, quick access toolbar and more for all your interactive whiteboard needs.

Smoothboard can be downloaded from http://www.smoothboard.net



Following from benpaddlejones request,
http://www.wiimoteproject.com/project-ideas/mouse-smoothing-a-new-challenge-for-the-programmers-t1003.0.html
I have modified Johnny Lee's Wiimote Whiteboard 0.2 to incorporate the mouse smoothing effect. This feature enhances the smoothness when drawing with an infrared pen.

I have followed the method used in the Java version of Wiimote Whiteboard by averaging out the past values of the click coordinates.

Comparison of the original without smoothing with the new smoothing feature


Smoothing can be enabled/disabled and also the number of past points to average out can be chosen.

Update:
I have made the app to save the user settings for the smoothness so that the settings can be loaded in the next run. The settings are saved in calibration.bat.

Update on 7th June 2008:
Cursor control did not function in Vista 64bit.
I have followed the solution by takai which can be found here:

Download source codes and executable here:
http://www.boonjin.com/wp/2008/06/02/mouse-smoothing-for-wiimote-whiteboard

Note: I have developed a more functional version of the wiimote whiteboard. Multiple Wiimote support, outside screen toggles(right click, double click, keyboard presses, launch files), partial screen area calibration, calibration viewer, IR sensitivity settings etc.

I took your challenge hehehe
Here is a test version of the mouse smoothing
I just did some simple modifications to Johnny Lee's Wiimote Whiteboard 0.2

I have not uploaded the source code, but will do so soon. (need to tidy up codes and allow some tests first)

Yes works fine in powerpoint/desktop & Onenote (Office 2007 on WinXP Pro SP3)

Will the double click work arround create problems in other apps???

Ben paddlejones

Thanks for testing!

I'm not sure whether this will affect other apps but in general interaction, I think it won't. However, I will still find for better solutions as this was a quick method.

I'm guessing you sleep as little as I do!

Works well testing with my mouse at home, can't wait to get to school to try V0.2 with Wiimote Whiteboard.

I can't get to work in Powerpoint (when would be most usefull in Interactive whiteboard setting to select pen or move to specific slide).

Wondering if it is because Powerpoint & Onenote see clicks slightly different? see post http://www.wiimoteproject.com/tech-chat/help-wiimote-irpen-not-working-in-microsoft-onenotepowerpoint-t967.0.html will explain problems I had with certain left clicks, maybe related?

Hey!
Actually i'm from the other side of the globe.  :D

I have just tested with powerpoint 2003 and like you said, it does not register the right click.
I have temporarily used a crude method by right clicking twice and it works on powerpoint 2003.
Can you help test on yours? Thanks!

Its available here:
http://www.boonjin.com/wp/2008/06/02/right-clicker-02

In Excel 2007, the right click also does not work even with the modified right-clicker.

I have updated Right-clicker 0.1 to allow the system tray to be used as a toggle area. This is according to benpaddlejones's suggestions. Thanks! :D



The usual left click mode indicated by the cursor icon that is pointed to the left with a letter L.

After clicking on the icon, the program will turn into right click mode (cursor icon pointing to the right with the letter R).
The next immediate click will be a right click.


To load the menu, click the icon twice (or right click the icon)

Genius!
You read my mind!

The program installs a button in the right window of the task bar what would be cool is:
a) no window, only button in task bar (could be a settings option)
b) click on task bar button for right click function (next click only)
c) click on task bar button second time (now a right click) to bring up menu to exit application, maximise to a window or select settings dialog box.

Once again genius!

benpaddlejones  :D

I will try to work on this as soon as possible. :)
Most probably I will do it with just a system tray icon (easier to do). However, the clicking area might be too small.

Wiimote Smoothboard / Application to help right clicking 2
« on: June 01, 2008, 06:57:50 AM »
Hello! I am a new Wiimote Whiteboard user :) from Singapore studying electrical and electronics engineering.
Similar with the experiences of many other users here, the lack of a right-clicking feature is annoying.
Therefore, after seeing benpaddlejones's request to make an app, I decided to create one for myself.

The following is an excerpt from my website:
Right Clicker 0.1, allows you to switch the normal clicks into right clicks.
This is done by intercepting the left click event and replacing it with a simulated right click event.

After executing the application, drag or resize the window to suit your usage.
When you need to right click, just click within the window, toggle area or the status bar (except the settings button).
The subsequent click you make will be a right click. After that, the next clicks will be the normal left clicks.

Please feel free to post any comments here or at my website. If any one needs any other features, I will be most willing to help.


Here is a video demonstrating the usage of Right-Clicker

I have made an application that does something similar to your idea. Hope that this app will be useful to you. :)

This video shows the usage of the application.

To right click, just click on the Right-Clicker window. Your next click will be a right click.
:)
