I’m using Touch2TUIO bridge to interface with with windows7, I don’t know if anyone out there has any experience with this but I’d love to get your input.
If you’ve not familiar with Touch2TUIO I’ll give a brief description of what it does: Touch2uniTUIO is an exe that targets the uniTUIO window via command-line argument. Touch events are intercepted by windows hook. It seems to use the WM_TOUCH method to access and forward on touch inputs. When you run the command line, there is this message that says mouse hook is installed — which I’m sure you can see in the video below (sorry of the ghetto player).
The problem I’m having is that is it not allowing single inputs. It seems to always have two inputs. The first which seems to always exist is the mouse. The second and third (and so on) are the next inputs which cannot exist alone. The source code for Touch2TUIO is available to edit and recompile, however I have no experience this api. I simply want to hide the cursor/mouse completely— possibly through the WM_MOUSE method? I’m not really sure.
The other Windows7 bridge does seem to work ok though, the transparent window bridge, called the WM_TOUCH bridge.
script is run(notice mouse hook message),
mouse is over the window(hover state) touch input is applied— but both remain present,
mouse buttons are used to drag demo box around,
next the keyboard and mouse are used to manipulate box.
The video: removed
Any and all input is appreciated! Thanks in advance!
