Filtering Mouse Input

edited September 22 in NTDEV

Hey guys,

the problem I am having is that I can not seem to find an easy way to let my mouse stop recognising a certain type of input if it has been recognised for x amount of times within a set amount of time. I specifically want the scrollwheel, when spinned downwards, to only accept a maximum of 2 scrolls as input and neglect the others when it is in a time frame of about 0.5 seconds.

I am completely new to this field and I am probably not able to create a solution by myself, which is why I am hoping to find someone here, who is capable and willing to help me with this unique problem.

Thank you

    Why? What do you think you're going to accomplish with this? Scroll wheels roll way faster than that. A scroll wheel limited to 4 clicks per second would be very annoying to use.

    No one is going to do this for you. There is a mouse filter sample in the Windows driver samples, but you have some reading to do, both about Windows drivers and about mice hardware.
