Mouse Control/Cursor Hi-jacking.


    Apr 20 2008 | 9:24 pm
    I was wondering if it is possible to take over or 'hi-jack' a mouse or trackpad's actions. I am to use OSC or Midi, sending it into Max and then it moving my cursor.
    Why I hear you cry?
    I have my iSight camera with a infrared filter on it and using software called isadora I can get X - Y data, I want to be able to move my mouse with the IR receiver.... its just a little project Ive wanted to try for a while.
    Any ideas?

      ; max pupdate [x coord] [y coord] in a message box.
      wheee!

      Its working... Realized I disabled my mouse and had to force quit! haha stupid me!
      How can I send a variable value into a message box though? Currently I am just typing values in... so i'm half way there.
      No idea about the mouse click.. i'm a novice!

      use $1 and $2 to use variable values in a message... (then send a list with x and y to the message)
