TouchCapabilities TouchCapabilities TouchCapabilities TouchCapabilities TouchCapabilities Class


Supports the ability to determine the touch capabilities of any connected touch digitizers.

public : sealed class TouchCapabilities : ITouchCapabilities
struct winrt::Windows::Devices::Input::TouchCapabilities : ITouchCapabilities
public sealed class TouchCapabilities : ITouchCapabilities
Public NotInheritable Class TouchCapabilities Implements ITouchCapabilities
var touchCapabilities = new touchCapabilities();
Windows 10 requirements
Device family
Windows 10 (introduced v10.0.10240.0)
API contract
Windows.Foundation.UniversalApiContract (introduced v1)


The values returned by the properties discussed here are based on the total number of touch digitizers connected: Boolean properties return true if one digitizer supports a specific capability and numeric properties return the maximum value exposed by all digitizers.

The Device Capabilities Sample demonstrates how to detect the presence of input devices and retrieve the capabilities and attributes of each device.

The following code shows how to use this class to determine touch capabilities.

    function getTouchCapabilities() {
        var touchCapabilities = new Windows.Devices.Input.TouchCapabilities();
        id("contacts").innerHTML = touchCapabilities.Contacts;


TouchCapabilities() TouchCapabilities() TouchCapabilities() TouchCapabilities() TouchCapabilities()

Initializes a new instance of the TouchCapabilities class.

public : TouchCapabilities()
TouchCapabilities() const;
public TouchCapabilities()
Public Sub New()
var touchCapabilities = new touchCapabilities();

Gets the minimum number of contacts supported by all the digitizers.

public : unsigned int Contacts { get; }
uint32_t Contacts();
public uint Contacts { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property Contacts As uint
var uint = touchCapabilities.contacts;
uint uint uint

Gets the minimum number of contacts supported by all the digitizers.

TouchPresent TouchPresent TouchPresent TouchPresent TouchPresent

Gets a value that indicates whether a touch digitizer is detected.

public : int TouchPresent { get; }
int32_t TouchPresent();
public int TouchPresent { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property TouchPresent As int
var int = touchCapabilities.touchPresent;
int int int

The number of touch digitizers detected. Typically 0 or 1.


This property always returns 1 if an instance of the Microsoft Visual Studio simulator is running.
