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.

QC1105120280
How can My-T-Soft work with all pointing devices and applications?

My-T-Soft 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).

QC1105120282
Can I use parts of My-T-Soft in my own custom application or project?

Yes, although My-T-Soft can be run easily from it's control panel and setup menu, many corporate, commercial, government, and industrial clients have integrated My-T-Soft into their business and manufacturing environments with simple API calls and messaging. My-T-Soft 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.
