Use vb2005 to detect the pen driver

I am doing a final year project for my school and is going to provide
for an organization, so I am asking for some help on here.

Indeed, I have no idea on how to get the input from my pen driver and
use on vb2005 as when I activate the pen driver, it will run its own
program itself and when I deactivate it, it become a mouse.

Therefore, I need to find out how to use the pen to write words on the
vb2005 program instead of being either a mouse or a pen in its
program.

I want to use the pen to write in vb2005, what can I do and what shall
I do?

It is quite urgent, please help me.

Hmm... let's think about this:

You have a mouse emulator that you need to detect when it moves. What
event handles this?

You need to draw lines when the mouse moves. What namespace contains
these classes?

That's about all the help I'll give for a school question.

Thanks,

My pen is inputted in a USB device and is being used together with my
mouse in the computer.

What I indeed what to do is:

When I start running my vb2005 program, my mouse can still be used.
Also, when I use the pen and write or draw something on the pen pad, I
can receive the signal on a specific area in the program.

But since I can't get the open source from the writing pad, I think I
have to work on the pen's specific .exe program(DrawObj.exe?,
pphidpad.exe?, sort_box.exe?) (I dunno which executable file I should
run to receive the signal from the pen and used it in the program)

How can I receive the signal from a USB device(pen drive detection)
and use the pen's specific part(drawing) on my vb2005 program. Please
help.

One step at a time.

Does the pen emulate a mouse or not?

yes, it does.

A mouse press a click = pen double click

mouse double click = pen click 3 times

The pen comes from a writing pad device

thx thx

yes, it does.

A mouse press a click = pen double click

mouse double click = pen click 3 times

The pen comes from a writing pad device

It is the case before the writing pad program runs

When the writing pad program runs, the pen can only be a kind of
Chinese word input method(only can write on the writing pad) and
cannot use as a mouse anymore

Hope this information may help you to solve my problem

I am still worrying on my project

Thank you for helping me

Ok, is the program you are developing supposed to just allow the user
to draw characters on the screen or is it supposed to be a text
recognition program? (i.e. you write a chinese symbol and then
converts your movements into actual text).

Thanks,

Seth Rowe

Indeed, it is a text recognition program so I need the help of pen to
write words on my program.

I need to know how to use the pen in my program in order to continue
my progress, but I don't know how to continue

So is there any codes which can let me achieve this?

1. by detecting the usb devices and use the executable files in the
installed writing pad
or
2. Directly capture the result when I run the writing pad

But I don't know how to do either one of them above, so please help

Would this be a bad time to say "Good Luck"?

Capturing input from another application is tricky business, and I'm
no expert on it. I would suggest doing some searches in this
newsgroup's archive for something like "capture input in another
program" perhaps you will come across a sample that will help.

Thanks,
