WINAPI Mouse movement diff via WinAPI

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I want to obtain the mouse movement win WINAPI. Basically if the cursor is on the left side of the screen and I move the mouse left, I want to sill get a -x value.
I know that this was possible with DirectInput, but I cannot find a WinAPI equivalent. Is there any?

GetRawInputData actually gives your the mouse motion in the X/Y directions, you can call it in response to a WM_INPUT event, after making sure to call RegisterRawInputDevice so that your window actually receives the events.
