Keeping the mouse cursor moving

Keeping the mouse cursor moving

Hey everyone,

I'm working on a program that involves rotating a model based on the movement of the mouse. My problem is that the model stops rotating when the mouse hits the edge of the screen. Is there a way around this?

I was asked not to use drag-to-rotate, and I tried using _mouse.mouseH = 0 to reset the position of the cursor every frame. I wasn't allowed to set that property.


RE: Keeping the mouse cursor moving

The cursor does not go beyond the screen; therefore you need to code it so that for example if the cursor is at the edge of the screen the model keeps rotating.
