SwapMouseButton Reference in C#, VB.NET and VB6


Visual Basic 6 definition
Declare Function SwapMouseButton Lib "user32.dll" (ByVal bSwap As Long) As Long

Visual Basic .NET definition
Declare Function SwapMouseButton Lib "user32" (ByVal bSwap As Integer) As Integer

C# definition
[DllImport("user32")] public static extern int SwapMouseButton(int bSwap)


Platforms: Win 32s, Win 95/98, Win NT SwapMouseButton alters the mapping used for the mouse buttons. Windows allows you to interpret left-button clicks as right-button clicks and vice versa. This functionality is designed for people who use the mouse left-handed. Of course, Windows is normally the only program to ever change this, so do it with caution -- it of course affects mouse usage in all programs as well as Windows itself. The function returns 1 if successful, or 0 if an error occured.


Further Information:

For further information on Windows API functions such as these, and how to use these API's in your C# and VB.NET applications, please refer to the book 'Network programming in .NET' (Buy at Amazon UK) (Buy at Amazon US)
