zenon 7.10 and native Windows 8 Multi-Touch features – Part 2

Last time we focused on the key concepts behind Windows 8 Multi-Touch – direct manipulation and gestures. In the next two parts of this blog series, we will address the new Multi-Touch features integrated natively into zenon 7.10.

Multi-Touch in zenon 7.10

With the implementation of Windows 8 Multi-Touch into zenon 7.10  we focused on facilitating an out-of-the-box experience without the need for programming. Reactions to gestures can be parameterized directly in the zenon Editor  – the integrator can focus on defining interactions instead of programming gesture recognition.

Dynamic Elements

At each zenon dynamic element (e.g. a button) you now can configure the reaction for “tap and hold”:

  • no reaction
  • execute a standard zenon function, e.g. for executing a VSTA-Macro
  • open the context menu

    (where available)

Screens

As with the dynamic elements you can also define the reaction for “tap and hold” and for “double tap” at each zenon screen:

  • no reaction
  • execute a standard zenon function, e.g. for executing a VSTA-Macro
  • show status window

Another new feature is the more detailed configuration of zooming and scrolling in a worldview screen. You can now define the reactions for horizontal and

vertical scrolling and zooming separately, giving you the opportunity of easily creating custom sliding menu bars.

Next time, we`ll continue with the new Multi-Touch features in the Alarm Message List, Chronological Event ListExtended Trend Module and the new touch-optimized time filter controls.
