KinectRegion class API not available for JavaScript RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there any equivalent to Microsoft.Kinect.Xaml.Controls namespace functionality for HTML5/JS?  I find the KinectRegion provides a very simple and direct way to add Kinect events to a standard Windows 8 store app.

    How can this be achieved with HTML/JS Windows store apps?

  • I found this unanswered question when I was going to ask the same. Any ideas?

  • The namespace and core components are supported in store apps, but we don't have controls. You can review the ControlBasics-DX on how you could extend and use the Windows 8 extensions objects for Interactions for a WinJS application. Performance can be an issue which is why you may need to create managed/unmanaged libraries that will bubble up values for your UI interface.

  • Unfortunately, I don't do C++ and I need this for a Windows Store project done in HTML5/JavaScript.

    Is there anything, anywhere that can help with this in a C# or JavaScript format?

    When can we expect something from Microsoft that gives a Kinect cursor layer for a HTML5/JS Windows Store project?

  • MoZeus, I would say this is not a priority for SDK near future. This is only an opinion based in observation and I could be wrong (in fact, I wish I am). I bet official response from MS would be "no announcements to be made".

  • There have not been any news from Microsoft in a long time about anything related to Kinect. It seems quite abandoned and people are wondering about its future (

    Maybe you can find some developer who can help you.
