Touch Controls for GUI

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

trying to create a GUI that should be used on touch screens in productions. The problem is: Changing the size of the controls will not affect it's special function areas (like the little button for the Drop Down List to show up).

By means of this the gui is entirely not usable with gloves which will cause those poor people that have to use the software to darn me 😞

Is there a chance to create resizeable controls that do not look like Windows 3.11? Or does anyone know a modern looking scaleable control library?

Thank you very much

 

Nils

You can quite get there customizing the control.

this for instance is a q&d expansion of the button (on windows it might actually look better), you can always replace the pulldown button image with anything nicer.

BigCombo.ctl

Btw, perhaps the thread belongs to the UI subforum rather.

Here are some additional pointers that might be helpful

I also found a blog post with pictures that show the general process for customizing controls.

Hahaha I'm so stupid!

Never recognized the Wrench Tool Icon.

Knowing its functionality, it's quite easy to manipulate the control. Thank you very much for your help and for the links with former information 🙂
