levels of pressure sensitivity??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was wondering if the levels of pressure sensitivity  could be released on some of the newer tablets.  I think it's currently set at 256.  I heard that the levels are set from Microsoft Ink.  So if it's software driven, could that be updated at some point??

  • If you are asking whether we support pressure sensitivity, the answer is yes. The value is set within the driver, however, so whether you see variable values in the software depends on the driver / hardware capabilies. If you're asking whether we can increase the ceiling on this from an 8-bit value to something else, I'm not sure about that. I think that the value already is a 32-bit integer, so the sensitivity values should be much less restrictive than that. Do you have a pressure sensitive tablet that is giving you a strange range of values? -Gus

  • Range values for pressure sensitivity are hardware specific.  Use the GetPropertyMetrics method to determine the range of values.
