How to use XMBC based on mouse coordinates irrespective of the active window

Post by AnweshGangula » Tue Jul 24, 2018 11:02 am

XMBC Version: 2.17
Windows Version: Windows 10 Enterprise
Mouse Information (brand/model): Logitech B100
Computer Information:
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC or Windows?:
How long have you used XMBC?: More than 2 years
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows?: English, QWERTY

Clear description of the problem:
We can add new Application/Window Profiles in XMBC. But how do I add a profile which is merely based on the coordinates of the mouse?
I mean I want to remap my mouse scroll at the top right corner of the screen irrespective of the active window. How do I do that?

You don't with XMBC I'm afraid.
Interesting idea that maybe I can add in the future (I'll stick on the request feature list) but right now its not possible.
The closest you get is the quadrants for each profile, but they are on top of the window specific profiles so that wont work as generic as this.

Regards,
Phil

Certainly such a profile would be useful.
Currently the closest to that is to make a profile for Start button/System tray/Clock. I have profiles for all those areas but still I could use Top left/Top right profiles "by coordinates" :P

Hi Phil, was this feature implemented since then? I can't find it anywhere, but I thought I'd ask just to be sure.

There hasnt been a release since this was asked... so no! And its not on the list for 2.18 - maybe it will get on the list for 2.19 but that depends on how much work will be involved (I havnt had any time to investigate it yet).
