I've already asked this in different ways:viewtopic.php?f=20&t=3114&start=60#p12868viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3602
from my understanding so far, it's not directly possible (I'll be rapt as an anaconda if Derivative folk chime in with an easy how-to though). There are some things that can make it possible for multitouch devices sending in chop channels but, on touch screens, there is not a concept of moving the mouse without a click or click/drag involved since every touch is seen as a click and hovering is not registered (although some new screens might have this ability soon).
However, Imran put forward some ideas for a workaround but I have not got far with it yet...
findpanel http://www.derivative.ca/wiki077/index. ... =Findpanel
controlpanel http://www.derivative.ca/wiki077/index. ... ntrolpanel
" ... my syntax might be wrong as this is just a quick pseudo-code...
Sadly, this hovering feature is not supported, but this does not mean that you are unable to implement this feature via a workaround. Basically, what u need to do is (not sure if this is cpu intensive):
Here is a pseudo-code:
u need to have a cvar called cur_panel;
run per frame to find current panel
store name of current panel to a temp_variable
check if temp_variable==cur_panel
if temp_variable != cur_panel
controlpanel cur_panel rollover 0 (change the old panel rollover to be 0)
cvar cur_panel = temp_variable
controlpanel cur_panel rollover 1 (change the new panel rollover to be 1)
Sorry Imran for pasting this without checking with you. no warranties expressed or implied etc.etc. etc.
anyone else have an idea how to do this? I have a half-baked idea to try the renderpick with some simple invisible 3D stuff to make some easily configurable buttons but that seems silly when it should be soooo simple to just use the lovely GUI stuff that's already in touch.
