[RFE] Add support for touch screens
« on: January 29, 2018, 14:34:13 »

Hi

I'd like to request an enhancement to allow getting touch events in a similar way to how android works. There are a lot more 2 in 1 laptops around now and it would be good to utilise the touch functionality available.

I had a quick look a GLFW and it looks like it doesn't support it yet but I could not easily see if it was on their road map or if this could be extracted via other methods

Touch input is currently scheduled for GLFW 3.4

Thanks, this looks like it won't happen for a long time then as 3.3 has been taking a very long time to release itself (and a while to go yet it seems)
