SDL_ShowCursor(SDL_DISABLE) and SDL_WarpMouse - anomaly

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am currently having trouble with the SDL_ShowCursor(SDL_DISABLE) command. When I set this SDL state, my cursor disappears as requested. I then want to warp the mouse position to SDL_WarpMouse(width/2, height/2). The problem I encounter is that the mouse warp does not seem to register correctly. For example, SDL_ShowCursor(SDL_DISABLE); SDL_WarpMouse(960, 600); The next very slight mouse motion would generate a mouse position of, say, 508,530. However, // SDL_ShowCursor(SDL_DISABLE); SDL_WarpMouse(960, 600); would generate a mouse position of 961, 600 after the same slight movement of the mouse. All mouse motions that occur after the initial strange position seem to be correct. Is there anyway to avoid this anomaly? Could anyone be kind enough to take the time to enlighten me? Thanks.

I was able to correct this problem by surrounding all my setup code with:


// setup all game and opengl state


while(1) {
// message pump
// draw screen

It appears that a mouse motion event was being generated during the initialization calls.
