Could a HID device plug and play as a mouse? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,


    I need to develop a customized mouse with additional data but as I described it as a mouse, I could not retrieve additional info. I will try to describe it as a HID device with mouse report in hoping that I could access to additional data.

    So I want to ask if a HID device with mouse reports like buttons, x,y then will windows allow it to plug n play like normal mouse? Or is there any way to build a HID device with function like a normal plug and play mouse but allow easy access to additional data?

  • you need to split your hid report descriptor into 2 top level collections. one collection is the mouse, the other collection is the additional data. that is the only way you will be able to get the additional data out of it.
