PanelDue touch activated in other areas than where touching!



  • Hi Guys,

    Not really an important issue, as when touching on the on-screen buttons, the buttons response is as expected, but today discovered by accident that touching in OTHER areas activates some buttons as if I was touching there - not sure whats up, if it is expected behaviour, or if I have mounted the screen too firmly (it is mounted in ABS, so do not think it can be overly tightened!), or if there may be a fault, or something else..

    Opinions welcomed! 😉

    Cheers!

    If you touch close to a button then the button may be activated; but if you touch an area that is not close to any buttons then nothing should happen.

    You may want to re-run the touch calibration. With resistive touch panels like the PanelDue, touching the screen with the tip of your fingernail is more precise than using the pad of your finger.

    ok, I'll try that monday... I generally use a fingernail, but when have to use the screen more, as seen, I use a piece of filament with the tip melted into a rounded blob 😉

    cheers!
