Hello,

We have to develop a multi touch application for a large touch screen (3.50 meters).
This application will allow the users to edit (at the same time) business process diagram, mainly through flowchart with vertical & horizontal swimlanes.
We have planned to use Telerik UP for WPF, but we have first to be shure that this lib will cover our requirements:
 - Multi-touch support
 - Easy way for creating flowchart: I see a demo, but it seems that the swimlanes are not really integrated in Telerik: we have to program specific shape containers
 - Connect shapes together with arrows by using a gesture

Could you please provide me with some advices ?
Thanks a lot

Pascal

Hello Pascal,
We're happy you're interested in our Diagraming Framework and here I'll try to answer your questions:
1) Could you please elaborate a little bit more on this subject - what kind of multi touch support do you expect ? At the moment the built-in support for the RadDiagram includes Tap, Pinch, Swipe and Tap and Move. If you need additional functionality it should be relatively easy to extend the default one.
2) Yes, the Swimlane demo demonstrates how you can customize the RadDiagram. In it we alter default behaviors and add new ones that are specific for this type of diagrams and that's why they are built-in by default. Depending your specific needs you can use our demo as it is or use its code as a start point and change it accordingly.
3) Unfortunately I'm not exactly sure what do you mean but we should be able to do this using custom services and/or custom tools. You can take a look at our sdk examples and our Sdk Sample Browser.
I hope I was able to help you and we'll be looking forward to hearing from you again.

Hello Zarko,
Thanks a lot for your answer.
We have investigated a little bit by some prototyping, and it seems we could use default basic touch event at the moment, waiting for the API you're working on (http://www.telerik.com/forums/multi-touch-support-ui-for-wpf)
Kind Regards,
Pascal
