  • A little niggle that still happens with the latest Build.

    When I connect to my RPI2 running the latest build [14965.1001] via the remote client app and then disconnect when it turns on the screensaver the mouse cursor is still present and I fear this is going to cause issues with my 5" LCD touchscreen. 

    I just wish the touchscreen part would work, but that's a different post.

    Is there going to be an update that might address hiding the mouse cursor when the screensaver kicks in?

  • Hi TheQuestor,

    For your touch screen question, I suggest you confirm with the OEM that their screen meets HID specifications. We have seen a Third Party fix for WaveShare so potentially you could let your OEM know about that fix as well.

    Please see http://k16c.eu/2016/11/02/open-firmware-for-waveshares-7-inch-touch-screen/

    I have not seen your issue with the mouse pointer but I have asked the IoT Core team if it is a known issue. Did you only notice the mouse pointer issue in the latest build? It was not occurring in any previous build to your knowledge?

    Sincerest thanks,

  • It has done this with all versions since the RDC app has worked with it. It only seems to happen after connecting to my RPI via the Windows IoT Remote Client (Preview) and then disconnecting which seems to move my cursor to near the top right of the screen and then when the screensaver kicks in the mouse cursor stays visible.

    I'm attaching a pic of it

    As far as contacting the OEM on the touchscreen I am afraid that is not going to happen as they are some unknown Chines maker and I bought it on eBay and they [the seller] know less about it then most people. The model is XPT2046 H2 and it works fine on Raspbian using the waveshare32b-overlay.dtb overlay but not with Windows IoT

    And thanks for getting back to me on this. It is much appreciated.

  • Hi TheQuestor,

    From the look of things it is maybe not a standard HID. Doing a quick web search would help. I found this just by "Binging" the part number https://github.com/spapadim/XPT2046

    As for the mouse pointer, everyone is asleep here but me so I don't expect an answer today. :)

    Update: The team has not seen this issue either so an item has been placed on the backlog for review (9821700)
