    task switching? touch screen only

    if im using only touch screen, and I have multiple programs running, yet the screen is full and some are covering the bottom task bar, then I have trouble switching between programs. Any ideas on an easyway to do this with only a touch screen, maybe a program that has a small dot on screen that cant be covered that when clicked brings up all programs to switch between, or something like that? also using touch screen only presents a problem with the RIGHT CLICK.... any idea on how to maybe setup like windows-ce/pc does it... you tap/click for (left click) and you tap/hold down on screen 1 sec and thats like a RIGHT CLICK???

    Check out a basic programing language called autoit (http://www.hiddensoft.com) that can do what you want with a minimal of hassle. The same goes for your other post regarding a timer for standby and shutdown (if I remember correctly) AutoIt should be able to accomplish that task too if you're able to get it to recognize a joystick. I'd write this program myself, but I don't know what your screen looks like, and what kind of image or button you'd like to switch tasks.

    I have built a program into the next version of FP that does the switching. If I have time I will seperate it and release it standalone.

    Small button in lower corner(either side), that Iclick on would work; I run 800x600 and use FPlyr, plus 3 programs for work, all full screen.

    jut lt me know if you could do it...
