OnTouch for Windows/Linux Touch-Devices

Post by fingus »

The Documentation of Hollywood10 for OnTouch-Event-Handler says:
Please note that this event handler is only supported in the mobile version
of Hollywood. (V5.3)
Touch displays are also equipped in more and more notebooks/laptops and 2-in-1 units (tablet computer) running Windows/Linux. Therefore, it's a logical update to support these platforms as well.

I'm currently coding a small tool for the company where I work. This tool monitors and reports ghost touch input and movements on defective displays. However, I'm facing a challenge in distinguishing between ghost display touch input and ghost touchpad (trackpad) input.

He probably wants to have some dedicated APIs for touch parameters like multiple fingers, touch pressure etc. Not a high priority here, though, because for most users it should be enough to map the touch to mouse events as plouf has said.
