Three things, first is to thank Boonjin for his time and dedication in writing smoothboard and his support of the program. thanks a lot man.

Second, i've been thinking and i was wondering how hard it would be to modify smoothboard to interprit the IR pen incrementally, instead of an absolute set up. it would be akin to using a drawing tablet, but at a fraction of the cost.

Third, I was wondering if anyone has come up with a solution to the left and right click dillema, I was thinking of finding replacement tablet pens which already have a left and right click buttons built in, and then retrofitting them with an IR light.  but i have yet to find a replacement pen under 50 dollars. This would be essential to making the above possibility viable, as well as greatly adding to smoothboard's versatility. At the moment, I have been using the pen in my right hand, and a mouse on my left, while workable I feel a more elegant solution can be realized.

Hi Vandallas,

Thank you for your feedback.

Regarding simulating the drawing tablet's pressure sensitiveness, I have not found any way to simulate this in Windows.  If you have any codes or idea on how to simulate the tablet's output, please do tell me.

You can retrofit it using a mini wireless mouse to get the left and right click functionality.
