How to enable UIBC Mouse through UWP Miracast API?

Gabriel Remus Linck Duarte 0 Reputation points


I am developing a Miracast sink app following the UWP Miracast API documentation and managed to get projection with User Input Back Channel (UIBC) Keyboard working.

However, the API does not seem to implement mouse, only keyboard and game controller. A different question on Microsoft Learn made the Keyboard support apparent (, but Mouse support is still unclear.

I'm wondering whether this is simply a limitation of the UWP API or mouse can be implemented in a different way.

Thanks for your help
