Touch Drivers (Compact 2013)


Learn about Windows Embedded Compact 2013 touch drivers, which provide software access to touch screens, plus links to reference information.


Touch drivers provide software access to touch screens. The Compact 2013 touch driver architecture includes a touch driver and a touch proxy driver. The touch driver is a layered stream interface driver. The touch proxy driver provides access to the touch driver through the same API that Windows Embedded CE 6.0 drivers provide.

To add this feature to your OS, see Touch Driver Catalog Items and Sysgen Variables.

The source code for the touch proxy driver, the touch model device driver (MDD), and the calibration functionality is available at %_WINCEROOT%\Public\Common\Oak\Drivers\Touch.
