Detect if SpaceMouse Wireless is turned on/iff

Hi,

Is there a way to detect via the SDK if the SpaceMouse Wireless is turned off or on?

Thanks
Thomas

Hello Thomas,

The on/off button on the wireless devices just controls the battery circuit. If your device is running off the USB cord it effectively does nothing.

The driver sends out some messages when devices transition between connected and disconnected. But you have the dongle in between there. I'm not sure if you get the specific sort of message that you want.

What do you want to detect? Users can hot plug/unplug devices at any time. Your software shouldn't care. There is always a device that you can open that will tell you about device comings and goings.
