Multiple devices?

Post by Jim Trankelson » Tue Aug 07, 2007 3:53 pm

This is a simple question.

Is it possible to handle data from two spacenavigator devices connected to my machine?

In other words, is there a way to register for callbacks on two separate devices within the same application?

Thanks!

Yes, it's possible to receive data from multiple SpaceNavigators connected to your machine.

You only need to register one callback and that cb will receive events from all attached devices. The way you would distinguish which device is sending the data is through the "address" field of the ConnexionDeviceState structure. This field is the ID of the port to which the device is connected to.

The SDK documentation has more information on this too.

You can use the SpacePilot or SpaceNavigator independently. However, the Mac driver does not support some of the additional buttons and LCD on SpacePilot.
