Hi All,
I tested my apps (via Dropbox) on a Windows 10 tablet. 
The apps seem to work all right but for one thing: the menu's aren't opened
on the touch-screen. Buttons do react though. 
Is there a solution for this problem?
Thanx & regards, Thomas J. Pool

Thomas,

A couple of questions come to mind:

* What version of Xbase++ do you use?
* Do the menus of other applications work?
* Could it be a problem with too high resolution (resulting in too small 
  menus or too fat fingers)?

I have not seen any problems with menus (of any kind, in any kind of Xbase++ 
or any other kind of applications) on Windows 10 in tablet mode. The only 
problem I sometimes see is on high resolution displays is that the menu is 
too small to be reliably selected with fingers, but the pen always works.

But I haven't tested any older programs compiled with Xbase++ version 1.9 
and before, so that might be in issue, but I kinda doubt that, as all other 
application's menus work as expected.

Hi Andreas,

1.9

  menus or too fat fingers)?
That's indeed the case. It's a 8 inch tablet and the menu-area's are small.
Touching them very carefully makes them react sometimes. Extending the
menu-area's (is that possible?) would be a solution.
A pen for touchscreens do have a special touch-tip?

Thanx & regards, Thomas

If you have a capacitive touch panel you need a special pen, but not for
resistive panels.

Resistive panels are rarely in use, especially because they do not have
good support for multi-touch an are less precise.
