Go to record stylus/pen inputs RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are implementing complete support of Stylus/Pen in our application that includes, rotation, tilt, pressure etc... To test that pen functionality, we are thinking to add the record functionality for manual pen inputs and play back them from our automation framework.

    For recording the inputs we found a way for enabling the global level (Low level) hooks for mouse and keyboard. But for Stylus/pen inputs we couldn’t find a way to capture them. By enabling mouse hooks, it is getting the pen inputs as well but from that, we are just getting point location (X,Y) only.

    Could somebody suggest me a way to enable hooks for Stylus (Digitizer pen) input or any other way of getting complete information of pen inputs (location, orientation, rotation, pressure etc..). Or else point me to correct person.
