Greetings all! I, Languard, will now be updating/maintaing VBTablet. GreenReaper might chirp in now and then, but I'm the primary maintainer. Of course my job is easy given the great base I had to work with.
The current build is compiled against the 2.0 Framework. As soon as I can get build targets working correctly, I'll have a build against 1.1 posted. Please shout out if you find any bugs!... read more
VBTablet goes online! Try the online version of TabletDemo, now at http://www.greenreaper.co.uk/tabletdemoonline/ - just let it load up, then click Connect and Enable. To draw in the window, click "Digitise Mode" - add "Sound mode" to add a Y-position-based tone.
You must have your tablet installed and working for this demo to work. Also, this demo requires the use of IE - if you're using Mozilla or another browser (or this version doesn't work for you), please try the regular installed version to see what VBTablet can offer you.
I've had a few emails about using VBTablet with .NET. As a COM component, VBTablet can be used by creating a "runtime-callable wrapper", either manually or automatically. Details for doing this can be found at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dndotnet/html/callcomcomp.asp
Well, the first release of VBTablet (0.9.201) has arrived, with support for everything you need to control a WinTab-compatible graphics tablet in VB (or any other COM language). No more struggling with subclassing or API calls! Should work in VB 5 or 6 - I don't know about others, but everything I can think of to help you is included. Enjoy!
