Barco TouchScreen Controller
Chapter 2. Configuration Utility and Right Button Emulator
[Constant Touch]
Enable Constant Touch to force the driver to stop reporting touch
points when the movement is within the defined range.
Therefore, the user can see a stabilized cursor instead of a
chattering cursor when users touch the same point with
unwanted noise.
Use this option to optimize the response of the touch screen for
finger operation.
For stylus operation & drawing it is not recommended to use the
constant touch feature
This option is switched off by default.
[Auto Right Button]
Enable Auto Right Button to force the driver to report a right click
mouse event to OS when users perform a continuous (without
moving) touch till time out.
This way the Touchtray program to activate a right click is no
longer needed.
This feature helps users to perform a right click more easily using
the touchscreen.
About Cursor Visibility
Cursor visibility function provides users to hide the cursor in the
display. Please go to Start / Settings / Control Panel / Mouse /
Pointers / Scheme, and choose TouchKit Hide Cursor. Press

Axis to <Larger>, the cursor will be moved a number of pixels to
the right.
If users set the Offset Y Axis to <Smaller>, the cursor will be
moved a number of pixels to the top. If users set the Offset Y Axis
to <Larger>, the cursor will be moved a number of pixels to the
bottom.

Monitors
There are three functions in this property page: Multiple
Monitors, Split Monitor and One Point Calibration.
<Multiple Monitors>
To configure the mapping relationship between the monitors and
the touch panels, select the monitor page as below.
Set the check box (Use Multiple Monitors) to enable multiple
monitors mapping. Unchecking this box will disable multiplemonitor configuration, and all of the touch panel controllers will
be mapped to the primary monitor. The gray shadow area is the
monitor mapped the selected controller/panel. The button
[Mapping] is used to map the relationships between the
monitors and touch panel controllers.
Press [Mapping]. The software will prompt to touch the
corresponding monitor to obtain the mapping relationship.
Touch the screen that says "touch". Repeat for every screen.
26
Barco TouchScreen Controller
Chapter 2. Configuration Utility and Right Button Emulator
After finishing monitor mapping, Press [Apply] to apply the
mapping relation!!
Special Case:
When you have a dual (or more) screen setup and you have only
one (or more minus 1) touch screen display, you cannot use the
mapping tool (it will ask you to touch each screen, and you can
only "touch" one since there's only one touch screen).
In this case you need to map the single touch screen manually,
which is done as follows:
1.
Select the touch screen controller in the Monitor Tab.
2.
Now select the display head (layout is the same as in
"Display settings - Settings") where the MFCD 1219 TS is
connected to by clicking it. It will become gray when
selected. When using the split monitor function, we need to
define the location (in pixels) & resolution where the display
is present (see <Split Monitors> on page 28).
3.
Press Apply to apply the setting.
4.
Now touch the touch screen. If the mapping is correct, the
pointer will appear on the correct screen. If the pointer
appears on the wrong screen, the mapping is incorrect.
Please repeat the steps above and select the correct display
head.

Chapter 2. Configuration Utility and Right Button Emulator
<Split Monitors>
Split monitor is needed when your graphics board uses a spread
desktop, spread over 2 or more monitors.
To use the Split Monitor function, you need to select which touch
screen controller you want to define the location and resolution
for.
Make sure that Multiple Monitors and Split Monitor are both
enabled.
Press [Split Setting] to set up the activate area.
It shows the current resolution of display and users can set up the
activate area by inputting the value by yourself or use the default
button [Upper Half], [Left Half] or [Quarter]. The default value
of panel resolution should be full screen as Left: 0, Right: 0, Top:
0 and Bottom: 0.
<One Point Calibration>
The Touchkit utility provides a fast tool to identify the
touchscreen orientation when the monitor display was rotated by
90 degrees.
When enabled, Touchtray will pop up the One Point Calibration
tool for users to identify and correct the touchscreen / monitor
orientation whenever the monitors was rotated by 90 degrees.
When disabled, Touchtray does not pop up the One Point
Calibration tool. Then, the user has to do the 4-points calibration
to correct the orientation whenever the monitor was rotated.
