Click Mode






Click Mode settings


The Click Mode dialog defines the click mode emulation and links to the click mode settings within the operating system.




Shows the current click mode emulation for a single touch. The setting is only active if the driver is responsible for the pointer handling via the standard ‘mouse’ interface into the OS. Other pointer interfaces will override these settings as follows:



Windows 7 / 8 extended touch

Click Mode selection is disabled if Extended Touch (see below) is enabled and forced to Click and Drag setting.



Mac OS X gestures

The Mac gesture extension disables the driver’s mouse interface and receives all touches such that it can calculate the ‘gesture’ including single touch which is then processed according to the SingleTouchMode gesture setting.




If using X or virtual touch (uinput) device interface then this setting will dictate the click mode. However, if using the virtual touch device interface then multi-touch usage will be processed by any multi-touch functionality built into the kernel.



A full mouse click is the action of a pen down followed by a pen up. In the following click emulations, where pen down is specified but with no indication if it’s a left or right click, then the touch action will dictate the click performed e.g. hold finger steady for a period of time will produce right click.


No click, movement only.

Pen down then drag. Pen up at lift off.

Drag then click at lift off.

Pen down and pen up at point of touch. No movement.

Left pen down then drag, left pen up at lift off. Stationary stylus invokes full right click (Pen down and up). Interactive switch delay determines right click hold time.

Latched option: Right click up is performed when stylus is lifted off the screen.



Click (pen up / down) is generated at the point of touch. If a touch is held after the click, no further motion or click events occur during this touch.


Vista and above. UPDD can deliver touch co-ordinate data to the Windows operating system via three different interfaces; Mouse class (Mice device), HID class (Virtual HID touch device) and since version 5.1.1248 a Win8TI API interface. In certain editions of Vista/Win7/Win 8 OS data delivered via the HID interface will be utilised by the extended touch functions built into the OS. This setting indicates what interface to use. When disabled the Mouse class interface is used and all standard UPDD features are available, such as Click Mode selection. This will reduce the extended touch features to those that work with a mouse type device so features such as gestures will no longer work. When enabled standard UPDD features that clash with the extended touch features are disabled and the UPDD click mode is set to Click and Drag.


UPDD 4.1.10 onwards - Configure touch sound options.

Visual notification indicates if visual feedback is shown during Interactive Touch right click countdown only Windows and Mac (UPDD 5.1.x) at time of writing.




Adjust the mouse pointer settings defined within the operating system. Settings should be set to compliment touch usage, especially the double click settings.

Used to test right and double clicks. A tick is shown if the click test is successful.
