Difference between PointerPoint::Position and PointerPoint::RawPosition

    Question

  • Anyone care to explain the difference between PointerPoint::Position and PointerPoint::RawPosition. The description on MSDN about the class PointerPoint is too sparse to to helpful.

  • The RawPosition is the raw position returned from the device. It is scaled to the client DIPs, but otherwise untouched. The Position is the same plus some interpolation, but I don't know the details offhand. On the systems I tested on they are both essentially the same.
