Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

CursorManager removed from holotoolkit

I'm attempting to use the Holograms 210 course as a how-to for adding gestures to my app. I'm on the step of adding a CursorManager, but I do not see this script under HoloToolKit > Input > Scripts > Cursor. I'm brand new to HoloLens development, so I may be looking in the wrong place. I did see some commits to the git repo about removing this, however, so I'm hoping there is an updated tutorial somewhere. If anyone has any advice or resources, I'd appreciate your help.

I was given the holotoolkit asset from someone else who built it from source. I'm unable to find any version number, but it was built within the last month.

    @jennifersheppard ,

    I just pulled latest and the script is there. There is also an InputManager prefab at HoloToolkit > Input > Prefabs.

  • @james_ashley Thank you for the quick response! I must be missing something basic here. When I look at the repo directory you posted (https://github.com/Microsoft/HoloToolkit-Unity/tree/master/Assets/HoloToolkit/Input/Scripts) I do not see a CursorManager.cs file. I've done a search on the entire repo as well for the file and class name.

    I'm on Chapter 2 of this tutorial, and it seems very clear that there should be a CursorManager class. https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/holographic/holograms_210 . Maybe I'm supposed to make my own script? I thought it would be like the GazeManager that I could simply add the component from Input > Scripts > Gaze > GazeManager.cs.

    Where am I going wrong? Thank you again
