    With this post Jesse Bishop just wants to call attention to the fact that the Microsoft Surface team recently released a manipulation (gestures) and inertia sample specifically for Silverlight!

    On the back of the Microsoft Surface SDK 1.0 SP1 Workstation Edition that was recently announced at PDC for creating and testing Surface applications on a regular desktop computer, this separate Silverlight-specific example shows off a great sample managed library, System.Windows.Input.Manipulations.dll, which supports a similar set of gestures as my previous sample – Rotate, Scale, and Translate.

    This tutorial of Jaime Rodriguez recaps the multitouch features in WPF 4, as of the Beta 2 release.

    Multitouch is simply an abstraction from the OS (or a platform) that routes touch input to an application. 
    The OS exposes multitouch input with different levels of control and/or detail.  For example, Windows 7 exposes multitouch data in three modes:

    • Raw touch [...]
    • Gestures [...]
    • Manipulation and inertia.[...]

    In this post Imran Shaik discusses Silverlight multitouch applications.

    From a pure feature perspective Silverlight Multitouch doesn’t really provide much since Silverlight Multitouch can only work on  Windows 7 running on a Multitouch capable hardware (HP Touchsmart TX2 in my case) and when you create a web application you can’t expect only 0.001% (probably I am overrating figures here) users to be able to use the application. But all things aside since Microsoft took the trouble of providing Multitouch support in Silverlight 3, I went ahead with the trouble of checking it out.
