I would expect that the hardware driver provides this as mouse input, to make it simple to work with. However, I have no experience in this area.

HI .. I'm new to this community.. but regarding your question bout touchscreen.. actually you don't have to change anything in your code.What the touchscreen hardware does is that it simply points the pointer to the part of screen that you TOUCH and sends a click event... you might have notice that most of the touch screen is Setup to Not Have a Mouse Pointer. ..

You would need the touch screen driver for your windows platform to be installed to have this functionality. I don't think there will be any change in the code level. The same click events should work as they are cureently working.

Any hardware you buy should come with drivers to allow your system to use it. For example, when you buy a printer, scanner or whatever - normally you have to install a driver to tell Windows how to run it. The same goes for your touch screen.

Perhaps it is detected and installed automatically - as a mouse, most likely. Who can say - you're more likely to have this info than we are.
