Hid report format

Oct 26, 2010 at 8:40 AM

Hi guys,

I want to write a  program that communicates with your hid driver, but I am not sure about the report format. So I prefer to ask instead of to reverse engineer :)

So my findings so far, with questions:

hid report ID = 1  ( I guess )

hidreport[0] = TipSwitch ? // what is it / does it take the whole byte

hidreport[1] = InRange ? // what is it / does it take the whole byte

hidrepor[2,3] = X , hidreport[4,5] = Y  // what units, pixels?

hidreport[6,7] = Pressure. what units, min, max

hidreport[8,9] = Width, hidreport[10,11] = Height // what are these, what is minor, major axis, units, etc. ?

hidreport[12,13] = Id // what is it

Do I have to send the timestamp also? Where is its place in the buffer? What units, milliseconds?

I would appreciate any help, thanks!

Hi ,

  some days ago I'v met the same problems just like you . I read microsoft white paper.  then I find the answer .

visit this web .

 and I have another problem . I don't know how to associate  HID report  with TUIO protocol.   As you know, HID  report can tell PC the meaning of the data from USB interface. however , after I read  the HID report specfication , there is just X,Y axis position parameter . there is no parameter to show just like angle metioned in TUIO protocal.   how does microsoft realize the multi touch ?  Do they not use TUIO protocol.

   any reply will be appreciatd!
