Dragger is a software utility for manipulating the left and right mouse buttons of a standard mouse or mouse emulator, like the HeadMouse Extreme, often utilized by people who have physical motor challenges. Dragger can be used to enter mouse clicks by via direct selection (often with an adaptive switch) and by holding the mouse pointer motionless which is commonly referred to as "dwell".
The dwell selection function in Dragger is called AutoClick. When enabled, AutoClick watches the pointer and clicks the left mouse button when the pointer is brought to rest for the programmable dwell time. If the pointer remains motionless it will not click again. Using the Dragger toolbar this single left click can be turned into a double-click, right-click, or left and right drag operations.
The Dragger toolbar displays icons representing various mouse operations (default is "left mouse click") and can be moved, resized and displayed in different layouts.
Even though most users will need AutoClick some may only need assistance with clicking buttons on a standard mouse or trackball. For those, AutoClick is disabled and Dragger is used to assist with double-clicks and drag operations.
