Hi everyone,

This is the first version of my Whiteboard Helper Program. The original source code is from Johny.
Remember to CONNECT your Wiimote first. The program doesn't have "Connect" feature yet.
Required: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en)


GUYS, I AM SORRY BUT I HAVE TO STOP UPDATING FOR THIS PROGRAM FOR A WHILE. I'll CONTINUE THE PROJECT IN THE SUMMER. THANKS ALL.


*** Wiimote WB Helper v0.3: (http://www.mediafire.com/?mljz2z1gihn)
_ Fixed: The application crashes when you use IR Viewer
_ Improved Calibration
_ Added shortcuts for calibration and Mouse control.
_ Added a large mouse and keyboard control library for future uses.

Screenshot:




*** Wiimote WB Helper v0.2 (http://www.mediafire.com/?tkl0imtxmmb)
_Added Double Click.
_Added IR Dots Viewer: It will help you with your calibration. Make sure that you see only 1 dot when you use your IR pen.
 

*** Wiimote WB Helper v0.1 (http://www.mediafire.com/?3myayzwnnlg)
_Added Calibration Visual
_Added Left + Right Mouse control.
_Fixed some minor errors.

Hello.  If you could add a double-click option on the menu where you choose left/right that would be beneficial.

Thanks for taking the time to make your program.

Regards

One addition that I would like to see is a button that would be user definable...

Right now you have left/right/double/...

So for example it could be left/right/double/userdefined...

Alt-tab is something that I find myself walking over to a real keyboard for...

Some might use the userdefined button to open a program (keyboard)...

Keep up the great work...

Thanks,

Neils

nclemenson,
Sorry, could you be more specific?
So, if you click on userdefined, the application is going to open another application? Is that what you meant?
What do you mean about Alt-Tab?

This is great, I want a request,

Can you make move only mode and click mode, similar to java whiteboard (uwe), preferably by toggling it in side bar, similar to gtk whiteboard ?

Sidebar means beyond calibrated area, for example upper area for Toggling Move and Click mode, lower area for double click, left and right area for right click.

So when we want to just move the cursor (with IR led on), we click on the upper side of calibrated area, then if we want to be back with normal mode which is click mode, we click again on the upper side, that's why gtk whiteboard call this sidebar.

Thank you.

Good morning Wizi,

Clarification:

The user defined button would represent a key or key combination.

Alt-tab or ctrl-w or ctrl-alt-esc or just alt-s ...

______

On windows 7 I'm having a peculiar issue.   For example if I try to minimize to tray (certain applications) like the wiimote helper, or accessibility keyboard, the mouse freezes.  I have to walk over to the laptop and move the mouse physically-rather than with the infrared pen.   Then I can minimize and the infrared pen will continue to work.

I'll video tape this issue today and post a link.

_____
Thanks again Wizi,

Regards,

Neils

Hi Mason,
I haven't used java Whiteboard yet, since I am using window7 with mini USB BT dongle, i have to use Bluesoleil. But i just ordered a new USB BT that can be used with Microsoft stack.  When I get the new BT, I'll be able to use Java Whiteboard and have a better picture of it. Can you give me the link to download gtk whiteboard? I am new to wiimoteproject :)

But according to my understanding, it isn't hard to do. You just need the coordinates of the cursor and the screen. You will be able to control the mouse clicks.

Do you mean like Wiimote Presenter? You can load and save your settings through a .txt file??
You don't have to make a video. I have that issue too. Since the program doesnt give out any error, its kind of hard to know where the problem is but i am working on it.


Thank you all for your feedback.

Wizi,

I only wish I could do more for your project than provide feedback.

I haven't used Wiimote Presenter...

There is a program called joy2key that lets you map movements on a joystick to the keyboard...

What I want is similar to that... I just want to be able to have something I point to with the ir-pen provide a keyboard command.

In any case, you've saved me some time by not having to record the video...hopefully you find solution...and the project stays fun for you like a puzzle.

Regards,

Neils

Btw, give me about 1 or 2 weeks. I have to wait for my new Bluetooth Dongle. The one that I had got mad and left me to its original owner. :D

nclemenson, tn the mean time, You should check out Wiimote Presenter (google it) to see if its something you are looking for.
