Just a bump (or poke or whatever they call it) for this subject... It's been a couple of years, and I have lost track of all the latest innovations in LC 8....
Touch interfaces are even more common then they were in 2014, and I'd still like to be able to use LC when we build museum interactives that require multitouch. Has there been any progress on this? I've seen this old post: viewtopic.php?f=49&t=25347&hilit=multitouch
but it's not very clear to me... It looks like maybe I can manage multitouch if I write my own handlers?
I've also checked here: http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=8446
, where there does not appear to be an update, either.
Is it on the roadmap? If not, why not? As others have pointed out, multitouch is the de facto modern standard for interaction.
The issue for me is that it looks like I would have to commit significant time just to build and test these capabilities. And then if they are not responsive enough, I'll have to move to a different dev tool that does provide native, or at least fast and responsive, multitouch....
(The follow up question is: would it be even possible to commission an [s]external[/s] widget to deal with multitouch via C++ or some other lower level system?)
