Getting list of pointing devices and their status
« on: September 07, 2016, 06:51:08 pm »
I want to get a list of pointing devices (mice etc) and display their state, plus eventually enable and disable them.

To this end I have found this page http://wiki.freepascal.org/Windows_Programming_Tips and the example "Enabling and disabling devices" half way down.

I've added the GUID for pointing devices from this page: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/driverssupport/a/device-class-guid.htm and I'm happily getting the list of devices.

The controlwindevice code in the wiki has enable and disable functions which will be useful later in my project, but for now I just want to inspect whether or not the devices are enabled...

It's been a long day (an excuse, I know) but I can;t seem to see any reference to current state in that wiki code, and can't see anything that even looks particularly relevant.

Am I missing something?
