    Hello,
    Is it possible to present Kinect region with buttons over the video from the Kinect camera?

    @gduncan411
    Thanks for answering so quickly, but these examples are not what I am looking for. A weapon in the Jedi and balloons in the Mage games are images shown over the camera color stream.

    I want to present real buttons, like you did in the article above, a button that a user can press in order to start an action connected with this button. I have both parts working separately, a color stream in one application, buttons in another, but when I try to combine them, the tile button is shown over the video frames, but the hand cursor isn't there and button doesn't respond to gestures.

    I am stuck with this problem for 3 days now, so your help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you're building in WPF, then you can do anything. But imagine the UI in layers. The bottom most layer is an image view that renders the rgb feed from the kinect camera. Make sure you stretch it out horizontally and vertically to fill the window.

    Our next layer should be the kinect region. The kinect region will be stretched over the window as well. Inside that region put you tiles. Put any kinect control you want. Now ensure that the background oh the kinect region is set to transparent. That should do it

    Is there a way to make the background of the tilebutton an image or a preview of the page (or file) that it is linked to?

    Hello.

    This example becomes really slow on my notebook after 1-2 minutes. This is my configuration:

    Intel Core i3 CPU M330 2.13 GHz
    4 GB RAM
    ATI Radeon HD 4570

    When I run more complex examples from Developer Toolkit Browser, I don't have any problems and there is no lag. It's weird that I can't use this simple example for more than a minute because lag becomes unbearable. Do you maybe know what could be a problem? Thank you.

    @HelasMadMCelisR: For issues with the example, best bet would be to connect with Vuyiswa Maseko directly. Click through to the original post and you can connect with him there...
