Default Show My Desktop to Host with full control

Hello,

in "Nexus Portal - Control" there's the button "Show My Desktop to Host" that allows a user to "invite" another user to share the host's desktop. I want the user to be able to share his desktop giving full control to the user on the other end. To enable this I've added the following lines to
procedure TControlMainForm.btnShowMyDesktopClick(Sender: TObject);
in RtcControlForm.pas:
with PDesktopHost do
begin
GCaptureAllMonitors := true;
PDesktopHost.AccessControl := false;
PDesktopHost.GAllowControl := true;
end;


This allows the user who was invited to see the host's desktop, but it is still only in "View" mode -- the remote user cannot control keyboard or mouse.

How can I achieve this?

One more question concerning this: I have a system with two monitors. If I use the "Show My Desktop to Host" function, the remote user only sees what's on my main monitor. I thought that the statement "GCaptureAllMonitors := true;" would allow the user to see what's on both monitors. How can I show the content of both monitors to the remote user?

Thanks & regards,
Olaf

From a look at the code, it seems that the class of PDesktopHost isn't
meant to have any user interaction. If you want the host to have full
control, just give them the Control application?

There's code in place that explicitly picks only the primary monitor
(and that is also what the dialog says). Please log an issue and I'll
have a look; I am currently working on other multi monitor issues (the
mouse doesn't work if coordinates are negative).
