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;
