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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
