    Touchscreen Friendly Code

    I dont have a touchscreen as of yet, but i am wondering, what are some basic rules for writeing programs for people with touchscreens. Also, how hard is the system tray (icon area) hard to use with a touch screen.

    System tray is damn near impossible to use... especially for a person driving.

    Most important thing, BIG EASY TO READ BUTTONS.

    Your finger isn't the most ideal pointer to pick out pixels... make those buttons big.

    So.... what program ya making

    I use a stylus with my touch screen and dont have a lot of problems with small icons. But for quick hits and frequently used buttons BIGGER IS BETTER BABY...
