    Hi, I am final year Interior Design Student from University of Huddersfield. I am currently working on my final major project which is going to be linked to coding. I was hoping that you could help me with my research. I have prepared a short survey, it would be a massive help if you could fill it in for me. It takes less than 2 minutes to complete, I promise. Here is the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/73XLJKK Thank you so much in advance!

In Windows, users may swapped mouse button to make physical right button to be considered as left button, and vice versa. This feature is to support left-handled people. And if you need to detect this possibility (like after you detect a mouse button is pressed, like in this code snippet), you can use the following code.


  , Windows

(* This function returns true if the mouse buttons are swapped *)
function IsMouseBtnSwapped: Boolean;
  Result := GetSystemMetrics(SM_SWAPBUTTON) <> 0;
