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.

Question about detecting type of input source

Hello,

For our Hololens app, I've made a menu that appears whenever it detects your hand being in the ready state. Unfortunately, this is checked by detecting input sources, which means that if the Hololens Clicker was detected, it would constantly be in the ready state, thus defeating the purpose of the popup menu.

To avoid this, I don't show the menu if I detect the input source not having the Position capability, something which hands have, but clickers don't. This works, but I was wondering if there was a cleaner solution to this problem, like being able to detect the type of input source.

    Seems like I was using an older version of HoloToolkit, where you couldn't request the source kind.
