Get Mouse Position Scaled by DPI

Get Mouse Position Scaled by DPI

Windows
MacOS
Linux

Gets the mouse position of the player controller, scaled by the DPI. If you're trying to go from raw mouse screenspace coordinates to fullscreen widget space, you'll need to transform the mouse into DPI Scaled space. This function performs that scaling.

MousePositionScaledByDPI = MousePosition * (1 / ViewportScale). //UE_DEPRECATED(4.17, "Use GetMousePositionOnViewport() instead. Optionally and for more options, you can use GetViewportWidgetGeometry and GetPlayerScreenWidgetGeometry are newly introduced to give you the geometry of the viewport and the player screen for widgets to help convert between spaces.")

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
