With UPDD 6.0.37x we introduced a very basic settings program to the UPDD Daemon menu to change some of the most commonly requested settings. With UPDD version 6.0.567 this has been replaced with the UPDD Console program.
With UPDD V6 all the driver's settings can be changed via the Command Line Interface.
|Settings dialog when devices are configured
Setting dialog when no devices are configured
The devices supported by the installed software is listed, showing the USB vendor and product id for USB device.
For further assistance see the Getting Started help article.
The settings and their meaning are as follows:
||Select the UPDD device in a multi-device configuration
||Rename the device as required. For example, in a 2 monitor system you may prefer the name to reflect the position of the touch, such as Left monitor:
Select the Rename icon and enter the desired device name.
| Touch interface
||Switch touch interfaces.
Windows = Mouse or HID, Linux = xtouch or uinput, MacOS = Touch
UPDD settings dictate how this setting is used:
touch_interface_locked = Setting is locked to current interface and cannot be changed
propagate.touch_interface = changes to the touch interface affect all devices
| Click mode
||Select the UPDD click mode
||Show/select the associated monitor for the selected device
||Allows you to specify the number of calibration points and placement margin percentage (in from the corner) for the next calibration request
||Calibrate the selected device
||Run the UPDD Configure program
||Invoke the online documentation in the default browser
||Invoke the UPDD Test program
||Lists the devices supported by the installed driver.
In this example 4 devices are supported, 1 serial, 1 virtual and 2 real USB.
For each USB device the USB vendor(s) and product id(s) of the device is shown:
| Add serial device
||This is shown if the supplied driver supports a serial (rs232) device and is used to add the device in the UPDD configuration.
Unlike USB devices that are automatically discovered and configured by the driver a serial device has to be manually added and configured.
Once added then normally the only configuration needed is to specify the serial port in use.
See Add Serial Device section below for more details
Add serial device
In the very basic console program the 'Add serial device' has some limitations that will be addressed in the more comprehensive UPDD Console under development.
In the mean time you can add a serial device in one of three ways:
'No device' dialog
If there are no UPDD devices found/configured on the system then the UPDD settings program defaults to showing the devices supported by the installed package as per this example:
From this dialog you can highlight and add the required serial device. Select the serial device in the list and select the Add option.
Once one or more devices are configured in the system the device dialog is seen.
Adding a serial device from this screen will either add the same device as previously added from the No device dialog or if none has been previously added in this manner then it will add the first one defined in the package. If only one serial device is defined in the package this will be OK. However, should the driver support more than one serial device type and you want to add one other than the first serial device type listed, then you will need to add the device manually as defined here.
To see the list of serial devices supported by the package use the Support option on the settings program:
Once a serial device has been added select it as the current device in the setting dialog and define the serial port as required, based on the Operating System in use.
