cool, then codeplex it is.

you will also find that firefox behaves like paint and has offset problems.

would you like me to create the codeplex project, or do you want to create it?

What shall we call this project? I was thinking about something like VistaTouch.

Any interest in keeping the project public??

I am trying to put together a senior project for my university based off my ftir table.
I have decided to focus on writing a shell for vista due to the dwm and the ability to keep current apps.
Looks like you beat me to it.. I’d love to help out on the project.

Just found this, a Session at WinHEC 2007:

Future of Input - CLN-C366

Microsoft has made a big investment in touch, including the support built into Windows Vista. With the multi-touch infrastructure delivered in Windows Vista, the architecture, APIs, and deep Windows support are available for hardware vendors to drive innovative product development. This session explores the building blocks for technical implementation and illuminates new scenarios that await innovative solutions.

Level:  200
Session Audience:  Business Decision Maker, Driver Developer, Hardware Engineer, System Manufacturer

+ video

Seems like Vista already supports multitouch. Can this be?
Unfortunatly I can’t find the full presentation :(

Just watched the video, it doesnt look like its low level driver support at all, they are using similar techniques to what im planning. They showed 2 applications that zoom using the scroll wheel, which they have simply mapped gestures to.

MTV will work in the same way and allow different mappings for each application, for example a 2 finger drag could send a scroll wheel event to the window for ie or send a shift+scroll event to 3ds max or whatever you need.

It also looks like they are just using the standard WM_INPUT system for the presses from the touch screen which is only a dual input screen. This system works just like having 2 mice attached when you are only pressing 1 thing it just moves the mouse there and sends a click, but when you are using 2 methods of input they assume its a gesture and apply panning/zooming. The last app they show is not a standard windows app and handles the WM_INPUT messages directly and draws them to the screen.

Our system will work in a similar fashion but will will also allow standard window rotation and scaling smile

Welcome to NUI Group forum!!!

Yes I am smile
I signed up here only to tell you folks that what you’re doing is amazing smile

Also, I want to say I’m sorry for the delays in the DWMaxx dev, I had a lot of computer issues lately, and I’m in the process of resuming dev as I’m building a second pc (needed for debug).

Keep up the good work!

Siwu, would you like to join our project on codeplex? We are trying to integrate multi-touch in WPF. And also make Vista aware of multi-touch input using DWMaxx.

I think markintosh means how do you compile the source code.
