What is My-T-Soft TS?

My-T-Soft TS is a powerful new version of IMG's My-T-Pen, My-T-Soft, and My-T-Touch programmable Onscreen Keyboard utilities designed for the Windows Server Terminal Services envinroment.

The Terminal Server approach allows the user's desktop to be hosted by the server (i.e. Terminal Server). Similar to PC Anywhere, or remote modem hosting, the "client" is only transmitted screen information, and only sends input data to the server - the application runs on the server, not the client. With various thin-client support for Windows CE, Linux, Unix, Solaris, Mac OS, the client can be almost any platform. Since the Server is Windows based, any windows application, database, web browser, etc. can be maintained by the network administrator, and run on any supported platform. With My-T-Soft TS, a pen based or touchscreen based handheld device can operate without the need for the physical keyboard. Along with the Logon support provided in My-T-Soft TS, complete operation of the hosted application can be accomplished from the thin client.

My-T-Soft TS 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: 176 US and International Onscreen Keyboards (more in development), 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, 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, Touchscreen, or other input devices. Keyboards, Buttons, and Panels can be set to an unlimited number of graphic sizes and color coded by the user.

What is the Logon Utility / Logon Keyboard?

In response to customer demand, IMG has developed and integrated an optional Logon / Onscreen Keyboard that allows a Pen or Touch device to pass the Ctrl/Alt/Del and Logon to the Windows Server without the need for a physical keyboard. This permits operation of a system entirely from the pointing device - no physical keyboard or membrane is required.

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

My-T-Soft TS 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-Soft TS in my own custom application or project?

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

With international distribution on every continent, IMG's products are used by consumers, corporations, commercial and industrial manufacturers, educational institutions, and government agencies worldwide. This means quality products, with quality support, and timely updates.
