    Hi all,

    I am working on a project for elderly and people with disability. The project is on "re-adjusting" a normal computer mouse. Some of these folks can not double-click, nor hold the left-click down for dragging files/folders. I found the following codes for changing the middle-click to left-double-click. One is written in C# the other in CPP.

    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/cpp/MBtn2DblClickVC.aspx

    This program would be very handy for them.

    Regarding the 2nd part, what I am looking for, should work like the following:

    1. Move the pointer on a file/folder
    2. Press and release the Middle/Wheel Click
    3. Move the pointer and it moves/drags the file/folder.
    4. Press and release the click again and the pointer releases the file/ folder

    This should work for the Windows environment. Does the description make sense?

    Does anybody know if such a code has been written?

    Thanks,

    -Farzad
