  • Reduce UI Clutter – Within interactive applications, buttons can be replaced by gestures
  • Reduce Footprint – Eliminate the need for a keyboard or mouse by using gestures and touch
  • Tablet Integration – Directly acquire data from on-board sensors such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, inclinometers, and light sensors


The Touchscreen Toolkit enables developers to create a richer user experience for their applications by providing a LabVIEW interface with both the Windows Touch API and Touch-Base Ltd’s Universal Pointer Driver Device (UPDD). Compatible with both Windows 7 and 8, the Toolkit delivers the unique ability to zoom and pan within a LabVIEW graph’s x and y axis plus cursor control during data analysis – all via touch. With multi-touch capable touchscreens, this is the only way to enable gesture recognition in LabVIEW. A new feature now includes an interface to built-in sensors on Windows tablets including accelerometers, gyroscopes, inclinometers, orientation and light sensors.  

The Touchscreen Toolkit includes a single seat development license and one deployment license good on the same machine the toolkit is activated on. Additional deployment licenses are available for $99 each. Contact Aledyne for unlimited deployment licensing options.
