The Mozilla Pointer Lock API uses the raw pattern of mouse movement over time to define input methods of the mouse. The movement pattern of the mouse provides the basis for consolidating mouse events and locking them into a single element, thereby removing limits on the distance that a mouse can stretch in a single direction. The API provides the flexibility to move the cursor beyond the boundaries of the screen without compromising access to mouse events. The Mozilla Pointer Lock API is suitable for developing applications that require a lot of mouse-controlled movements or events. Such applications include: 3D games, graphic design apps, and map viewing apps among others.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
