Remarks

The values returned by the properties discussed here are based on the total number of mice connected: Boolean properties return true if one mouse supports a specific capability and numeric properties return the maximum value exposed by all mice.

The Device Capabilities Sample demonstrates how to detect the presence of input devices and retrieve the capabilities and attributes of each device.

Constructors

MouseCapabilities()

Initializes a new instance of the MouseCapabilities class.

Properties

HorizontalWheelPresent

Gets a value indicating whether any of the mice connected to the computer have a scroll wheel that tilts left and right (usually for horizontal scrolling).
