Windows Multi-Touch Support (UE-19347)
By now it's not a secret anymore that Epic has backlogged Multi-Touch functionality for windows pc's with touchscreen. At the moment only mouse events can be simulated using touch, no more than 1 touch inputs can be handled (or 2 of you use pinching for your mouse-wheel input) .
I am actively looking to find better functionality for our visualization clients and most of this functionality can come from multi-touch support.
In this quest for multi-touch support i have ran into a few projects and posts that make me wonder: what is their status and (how) can I get my hands on their solution? I am posting this threat to hopefully start a more productive efford to (communally) find a solution for this missing feature.
Until now I've found the following interesting links:
This is about all information (besides our communal begging for this feature) i could find.. Let's try to solve this together!
EDIT: I've just found a post stating it will be featured in 4.14: "This is now in progress. The target release is 4.14, but it will be available via source on github probably within the next month after it has been sufficiently tested."
I don't know how long 4.14 will take until release but i am happy that Epic has heard our wishes! I am still curious if anyone can get the code from point 1 working:)
This has been implemented and will release in 4.14. I'll update https://issues.unrealengine.com/issue/UE-19347 once the code has been merged from our development branch to the main branch which is available on GitHub.
