Set mouse pointer problem with multipe screens RRS feed

  • Question

  • We use Window Server 2012 R2 Version 6.3 (Build 9600). Application is running on this server. To access our application we use Web Access for remote desktop from a normal window PC.

    In our application we set the mouse pointer over a command via "Cursor.Position". It works well when the local pc have only one screen. It works also well when the local pc have two screens in the configuration [1|2]. If the configuration of the screens on the local pc is [2|1] it set the mouse pointer to the right border of the screen.

    It works also well in each screen configuration when we run our applicationc direct in Win7, Win8 or Win10.

    We have not found any way to detect the error case and no way to solve it.

    I have prepared a small test program. With this program I can reproduce the problem.

    Any idea how we can solve this problem?

    Best regards.

  • Hi Drake,

    I have created a zip File with the program, but I can't found a upload command here?

    How can I do this?

    Best regards

  • Hi Drake,

    I can't post the link here.

    I got following error message:

    What must I do?

  • Here is the link:

    https://support.gewi.com/2560264908

    Its the complete solution. The exe file can be found in the folder "...\ButtonSetTest2\ButtonSetTest2\bin\Debug"

    The releated code can be found in file "Form1.cs", method "SetCursorToControl" line 124.

    The goal is:

    when click button 1 to mouse pointer should stay over button 2.

    when click button 2 to mouse pointer should stay over button 3.

    ...

    when click button 5 to mouse pointer should stay over button 1.

    Any question please ask.

    Best regards,

    Dirk

  • Hi,

    This thread seems to be not in the scope of support for this forum, I'll redirect this thread to the correct forum for better support. Thank you for your patience.

    Since you get the issue only on windows server 2012, you could ask here:

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=winserver8gen

    Or since your project is a winform project, you could also ask here:

  • Hi Drake,

    Yes I know this stackoverflow answer. It dosent help.

    So you will move the thread to the right forum? Or should I create a new question in the forum you mention?

    Our program ist installed on a windows server 2012 machine. There the program is "publish".

    So the user can access the program via local PC and Web Access for remote desktop.

    The problem see the user on his local PC.

    What do you think is the better forum for this problem?

    Best regards,

    Dirk
