Ah, but that's the benefit, you see. My post is exercise for the brain, and no pain, no gain! :)

You can cheat, of course, and use the On-Screen Windows keyboard!

Early touch screens, did nothing more than emulate mouse movement (click, double click, drag, etc) , but latter day touch screens have their own unique functionality, which is being more commonly adpoted even in the commercial world (not just the gaming fraternity) - yes , the dirty factory floor.

Getting such features as multitouch, panning and zooming, scrunging and window substitution - could be more troublesome in DE/FF, than a hours homework!

We can take a Ostrich approach and hope this technology will never replace our trusty mice . . . . . . . . . . . ?

I did start by saying the example is for fun...

It's serious side is that I want to illustrate that solutions often come from taking bits and pieces and bringing them together. It is not all scripting or all DQL, or whatever, but really a collection of ingredients. In particular, I think people find knowing where to position scripting in their development confusing (when it first became available, I know of some people who used it for just about everything, which is utterly back to front). it is, as I have often said, icing on the cake. First you have to make your cake ...
