The Discussion

    how do we use this in our beta WPF aplications.  Is there a special adorner we have to apply to the controls we want to be touch enabled?

    Hi Moemeka,


    To get it to work you set properties on the UIElements, for example, you can set the ManipulationMode="All" to listen to manipulation event and then listen to ManipulationDelta to handle the changes..


    On beta1, there is limited support for touch (no raw APIs)..  but manipultion is there and works OK.. If you need help, reach out to me for a sample.
