Control mouse pointer with Qt even outside the Qt application.
Hi all, first let me explain the plot, i have been building an application that can emulate the functions of a mouse using hand gestures. I did the gesture recognition part using OpenCV. I am trying to make a GUI interface using Qt.
As an initial step, I am currently trying to control the mouse using the keyboard. I assigned the keys A W D S to move the mouse in all the directions using
void QCursor::setPos ( int x, int y ). Its working fine.
Then i used the windows API function:
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE | MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN | MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP, 1, 1, 0, 0);
to simulate the mouse click.
Its is also working but when i click anywhere outside the Qt application the focus shifts and i loose control of the mouse through the keyboard. Is there any remedy for this?
If you already use Win32 Api, you can force the focus calling SetFocus.
i tried to set the focus using
but there was no success. The control jumps to the next window onto which i click using my 'O' key(i have assigned O Key to perform single click). Any remedy for this?
