In the Windows 7 Multi-Touch Overview video we talked about the basic multi-touch functionality in Windows 7 and a little bit about the “Good, Better, and Best” programming model. In this video, we focus on Windows 7 multi-touch programming model. Join Reed Townsend and Ian Mendiola as they cover how to configure and work with multi-touch gestures, how to work with raw multi-touch messages, and what the manipulation and inertia processes are and how to work with them.


This is another video in the Windows 7 multi touch series, which includes:

      Mr Crash

      Touch seems slow and unresponsive.
      Is this a hardware issue ? I do hope it is !

      Move / shake a window around with the mouse and then do the same thing with touch.

      And there is an obvious delay using touch.
      And yes microsoft, delay is bad.

      You can even see it on this video.


      I can think of a few games that could use touch but wont be fun with that delay, they may not even work right because of it.

      Those game ideas are on hold until i get an answer / fix for this delay thing.

      Basicly because of the delay (or what ever you want to call it) touch suck.

      Is the delay there because they 'hacked' in the touch in some way ?
      Wouldn't supprise me, microsoft is desperate and have been desperate for some time now, so fast tracking / taking bad shortcuts... well i wouldn't put it past them.

      Yet another fail from microsoft ?


      Microsoft if you want help the just ask.

      Ops, this comment got long, guess i'm still pissed at microsoft, owell....

       Its really useful video about the functionality of windows 7 multitouch. I like the way; it is being explained about the programming of window multitouch. Both Join Reed and Ian Mendiola explain every thing in very impressive way. I am very much impressed with this window, and i suggest my company(cheap web hosting seller) management to use this window, instead of using other operating system.
