Mouse Input

This section deals with the standard mouse input.

Mouse input is accepted on all platforms (on mobile devices it is accepted as a single touch. If you need to use multi-touch, you should be using the device specific functions) and has a number of constants that are used to specify the buttons being pressed. These constants are shown in the following table:
