Programmatically turn blue light ON/OFF

Post by Hotdog » Mon Dec 08, 2014 3:11 am

Hallo,

Currently I am integrating the SpaceNavigator in a new software using C# / Mono by reading the well known 7 bytes (1 command + 3 translation + 3 rotation) from the USB Generic HID (VID=0x46D, PID=0xC626).
This is working fabulous so far, but I also have to control the blue light ring around the knob as a indication.
I have found out, that it is possible to control the light from software, since you can do this with the systray icon in Windows.
I assume there is must be some byte sequence to do so as a USB Generic HID as well?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you,

hotdog

I can send a 2-bytes report {4,255} and {4,0} to switch the light on / off.
I wonder if there are more commands? Does anyone have a list?
