Hello,

I have been doing some develops based in the johnny lee's wiimote whiteboard, and i have implemented rigth click.

For activating it, the wiimote have to see a light  in the same position for a second, then if the wiimote keeps seeing the the light in any positions for 3 seconds and then the wiimote stops seeing the light, it displays the right click.

My implementation works prefectly, but i want to draw a circle around the cursor, indicating that the right click is charging, but I just dont know how to do it.

Changing the cursor shape, doesnt work for me, because the cursor can only have sizez of  almost 32px X 32px and I need a bigger circle.

Any ideas?

PS: Sorry for my awfull english.

A few have looked at this before, its not to hard to change the icon but changing it back is vdifficult in windows. I suggest you ask Boonjin.

Hi ecarrion,

Maybe you can draw a small graphic on the user's screen depending on the position of the cursor.
However, drawing a circle around the cursor might be a challenge. You also try to have a small rectangular box similar to a status bar to show the progress of the click.

It will be quite cool. :)

Regards,
Boon Jin

What are you expecting to happen when DirectX or OpenGL gets a right click? If you are thinking that a Windows XP or Vista right click window is going to pop up then you are out of luck. In DirectX the screen is all yours, so anything that happens on the screen is up to you. If you are trying to send a right click to a particular game then the problem maybe that each particular game designer has got their own system for exactly what constitutes a right click and how to react to it.

I hope this helps.
