This driver is an implementation of the Microsoft two-button mouse protocol, for using a serial mouse or trackball. It polls a specified serial port at a specified rate, and reads any data waiting there. This has been tested under LabVIEW versions 7.1.1, 8.0.1, and 8.20 under Windows 2000 and Windows XP, and under LabVIEW Real-Time 7.1.1 and 8.0.1.

This driver contains components created using the dqGOOP toolkit to enable object-oriented programming.

Note: When using a serial mouse under Windows, it is important that Windows not auto-detect the existence of the mouse (e.g. upon bootup). Otherwise, the operating system will intercept the mouse input and LabVIEW will never see it.
