[SOLVED] Tablet event on Windows7 with Qt 4.8
I'm trying to use tablet events for my destop application on Windows7 (pressure and position).
It work well on linux but on windows the tablet exemple doesn't work (exemple/widgets/tablet).
It compile and run but nothing is drawn because it doesn't receive any tabletEvent.
I found others people with the same probleme but I didn't found yet a working solution.
The most recent information I found is a bug report https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-30008. (not mine)
and this thread http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/26401. but nobody give solutions to make it work.
I test it on Windows7 with QtCreator 2.4.1 and I use the version 4.8.0 of the SDK with MSVC2010.
So my question is.... Is there a solution to get that tablet exemple to work under Windows? or it's just impossible right now with the actual QtSDK... I read a little about Qt_base and the evdevtouch plugin. It seems that if I compile Qt_base, I will get the necessary plugin but I cannot figure how to build and use it. (I'm not even sure I understand well).
I'm planning to do it with to separated solution for both linux and windows but I would love to found a cross-platform solution to get pressure data from the tablet. If you know a good one (free for academic use)....
I finaly got it to work.
It wasn't related to Qt. I don't know why but it looks like my wintab32.dll wasn't appropriate. The pen was working with others applications so I wasn't concerned about wintab but it looks like the version I had wasn't right.
Strangely, re-installing the tablet driver doesn't correct the problem. I had to manually replace the wintab32.dll file from System32 by a new one ( get wacom driver installer (.exe) -> rename as .zip -> open and grab the dll -> put it into system folder)
thanks to people who read this.
As usual, I wait one day before to ask and I found the solution 2h after.... Better than the contrary
