API for pen and touch devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am new to this kind of development. I simply would like to know whether Windows .NET supports . an API which can program against any Pen and Touch device, such as for example the one found here.

    If so, can anyone point me in the right direction where I can get started. I simply want to develop WPF applications which captures events from the device.

    thanks for any help,

  • The Windows Touch APIs will not work on the Wacom bamboo without the hacked driver.  Even with the hacked driver, multitouch is questionable on the Bamboo.  I have been working on a video/blog post that shows the driver in use and describes how to get it working but that probably will not be posted for another week or two because I need to edit the video down.

    The only supported (official) Windows touch devices will be monitors and Tablet PCs.
