Getting started with tablet programming RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows Vista Ultimate 64 desktop with a WACOM tablet connected to it.  The tablet is operational in that the pen moves around in Windows.

    Now I want to write a simple C# program using Visual Studio 2008.  I don't need handwriting functionality - I only want to use the pen to draw at this point.  I see reference to Microsoft.Ink and other DLLs to reference in my application.  However, nothing like that shows up in the "Add Reference..." dialog from Visual Studio.

    The articles I find online with respect to programming tablet apps with C# are all dates (2004, 2005, etc.).  What do I need to do to get started writing a simple application using Visual Studio 2008?  I have the Team Developer edition installed.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  • You might want to check the Going Places article on getting started with Tablet PC development. This article targets unmanaged development, but you can still add the InkPicture or InkEdit control to your application in a similar manner.
