Detecting the presence of a touch-enabled screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to find a way to detect if my application is running on a touch screen or not. The application runs on win7-devices, both desktop and notebooks.

    I've googled around, but so far all it came up with was some suggestions about checking all graphical drivers and trying to determine if one of them was connected to a touch enabled screen...

    Is this even possible? Or will we have to wait for a better touch-support?

    (PS: most of the computers this program is running on should have the default win7-touch drivers installed)

    Hi Tom,


    Wlecome to the MSDN forum!

    I suggest that you can post thread in Windows General Development Forum. There are experts in that forum so that you may get more useful information.


    And I’d like to move this thread to off-topic because the problem is not related to topic of this forum.


    Thank you for your posting and understanding.

    Have a nice day!
