Generating Mouse Events with Win 10 IoT Core RRS feed

  • Question

  • There are a number of very cheap LCD screens with resitive touch digitizers. These generally user SPI to send touch information.  I've created some C# code to read this touch information and send it to a custom UI and do "hit-testing" on custom UI components to generate tap events.
    This obviously is not ideal, I'd like to take information like X, Y, MOUSE_MOVE, LEFT_BUTTON_DOWN, etc... and generate real mouse events. Normally you would do this with SendInput() via User32.dll but it doesn't look like this is available
    What would be the best way to generate mouse events so that the system can use them?

  • Hi Kevin,

    I asked a member of the IoT team to review your question and they had the following insight for you:

    My best advice would be to study what is available to public in MSDN for HID input devices, since this functionality is available in Windows 10 IoT Core.

    Sincerely,
