Adding support for new CadMouse

Post by jjmcwill » Wed Oct 28, 2015 12:22 pm

What do I need to do as a developer to add support for the buttons/functionality of the new CadMouse?

Hi Jeff,

There shouldn't be much of anything you need to do. It's not a 6DOF device, so you won't get any 6DOF events from it.

About the only thing you might want to do is create some custom radial menus, or reassign some buttons to your app. If you don't distribute a 3DxWare Cfg file now, you would have to start. If you install your Cfg file into %PROGRAMDATA%\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\Cfg, the driver will pick it up.

The forward/backward thumb buttons might be interesting. In most apps, we assign them to a quick zoom in/out function. See our Viewer (3Dconnexion Home) for an example of how we suggest it should work.
