StageNow - 3.1

Overview

The TouchMgr adjusts touch-screen sensitivity for different usage scenarios on devices that support sensitivity settings. Touch panel settings can compensate for input with a finger or stylus, when working with gloves or when a screen protector is present.

  • TouchMgr is supported on the following devices:
    • ET50, ET51, ET55, ET56
    • L10
    • MC33, MC3300x, MC93
    • TC51, TC52, TC55, TC56, TC57
    • TC70, TC70x, TC72, TC75, TC75x, TC77
    • TC8000, TC8300

Note: Touch-screen sensitivity settings vary by device.

Main Functionality

  • Configure touch panel sensitivity for:
    • A bare finger
    • A stylus or bare finger
    • A gloved or bare finger
    • A stylus or gloved or bare finger
    • Presence of a screen protector

Screen Protectors

Some Zebra devices support the addition of a Screen Protector, a third-party glass or plastic overlay that adheres to the display and further protects it from cracks and scratches without interfering with normal operation. When a supported device group, platform or type is selected using the Device Type parameter, the "Screen Protector" checkbox is displayed and the device is configured to adjust screen sensitivity to compensate for the presence of the protector based on the selected Touch Action (see matrix below).

Touch Actions - Any Device

Used to apply Touch-Mode settings on any supported device in accordance with the touch-screen sensitivity required for an expected usage scenario.

IMPORTANT: Use this parameter only when no device-specific parameter exists for a target device AND ONLY when it is known that touch-screen sensitivity settings are supported on that device. Applying this parameter to a device that does not support touch-screen sensitivity settings results in unpredictable behavior, causes an error or produces no output in the Result XML to indicate failure.

Note: This feature is not supported on the TC8000. Changes to Touch Mode on the TC8000 are supported only manually through the Settings panel on the device.
