I have an experiment where I need to hide the mouse and participants have to sometimes perform a task where they change the length of a line by moving the mouse left or right. I’m currently using
mouse.getRel() and increasing the length of the line if the mouse is moved right and decreasing the length if it is moved left.
My problem occurs when the mouse is either at the left or right edge of the screen and therefore a movement in that direction is not registered because the mouse is already at the edge of the window.
Offline I would just re-centre the mouse position at the beginning of every trial. However, I’m aware setting the mouse position online is not possible.
If I’m moving the physical mouse to the right, but the cursor is not moving because is at the edge of the screen, is it possible to capture that ‘trying to move right’ action? Or any other workaround? I’m very stuck at this point.
