What is My-T-Pen?

My-T-Pen was first shown at Fall Comdex 1993 where it received excellent local and international reviews. My-T-Pen is actually a series of 11 panels (over 125 functions) that can be opened and closed to provide access to various features and functions including: Over 175 US and International Onscreen Keyboards, 2 pre-defined Windows (most often used functions) panels, programmable unlimited Macro Button panels (each panel can be assigned to "auto open" with any application), Edit panel, Numeric panel, Magnifier panel, Calculator panel with "popup" calculator Tape, Supervisory Level Security (for Setup and Panel controls), Show & Hide Keys (turn off keys to prevent access and minimize operator confusion), New Cursors (for positioning on touch and pen devices), and other functions specifically designed for use with Windows based Pen and Touchscreen input devices. A Windows Network logon component is available in the Network License version. Keyboards, Buttons, and Panels can be set to any of 12 base sizes (with infinitely larger sizes) and color coded by the user.

What is the Logon Utility / Logon Keyboard?

In response to customer demand, IMG has included a special Logon option / on-screen keyboard to allow Touch & Pen systems to logon to a Windows system without the need for a physical keyboard. This allows operation of a system entirely from the pointing device - no physical keyboard is required.

QC1805120261
How can My-T-Pen work with all pointing devices and applications?

My-T-Pen is actually written at the same level as the Windows operating system. That means it runs above the pointing device and graphics drivers (it lets the device drivers do their job without creating conflicts) and runs below Windows applications, so it doesn't compete with them (unlike buttons or panels, created in Visual Basic or other high level application development tools, which are sensitive to any changes in pointing devices or graphic cards and usually conflict with any application other than the one for which they were developed).

Can I use parts of My-T-Pen in my own custom application or project.

Yes, although My-T-Pen can be run easily from it's control panel and setup menu, many corporate, commercial, government, and industrial clients have integrated My-T-Pen into their business and manufacturing environments with simple API calls and messaging. My-T-Pen individual components can be called from Visual Basic, Access, FoxPro, Paradox, Delphi, Oracle, PowerSoft, or any other programmable environment. We've even developed Windows API messaging executables (you can download the Developer's Kit from our website) so that programmers and non-programmers alike can launch various keyboard, numeric, macro, calculator and function panels and control basic open, minimize, restore, and close functions without having to write additional code or scripts.
