How can I determine if my touch device is working correctly?

Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 devices

Try this test:

  • start Microsoft Paint
  • use two or more fingers to draw curves on the canvas (have a look at the following screenshot with Paint and 5 fingers applied on a multi-touch screen)

If the curves follow your fingers correctly the device is working as it should.

If your device is not working correctly, make sure your PC is properly configured for touch and gesture behaviors. See this article.

If you continue to have difficulty, let us know. Include the make and model of your touchscreen display.

TUIO devices

Use the test and calibration software provided by your vendor to verify that your device is working correctly.

NOTE: For Composer and Player to work with TUIO devices you must first update a configuration file. See this article for more information.
