Working in C++

Post by Enrique Palomo » Mon Apr 19, 2021 8:07 am

Hello,
I am trying to access space mouse from c ++.
You would need an orientation to initiate the connection with the device, close it, if necessary, and receive the position and orientation data from the device.
This information is probably available elsewhere in the forum, or on another website; please, if so, tell me where to look for it. Any help will be appreciated.

Have a look at the Windows SDK as it includes C++ samples. They should get your started. The SDK can be downloaded from here.

I have downloaded the SDK that you have suggested. I've been working with the "navlib_viewer" example. But I only find event management. I cannot find device initialization or detection of such events.

You seem to have an idea of what you want since you're referring to a device and initialisation.

Perhaps the SDK is not the best approach for you. Perhaps using a system interface, bypassing 3Dconnexion's drivers, may be a better fit for what you're looking to do.

Can you gave a bit more context? With some detail, we ought to be able to give you better guidance on how to move forward.
