    Touch screen programming


    I have a touch screen table at work and my boss gave it to me to play with it and create a simple app which will open some menus etc.... nothing hard until now. He wants to use some tokens, which will trigger those menus and some gestures like tapping with all fingers will do something. I did a research, but I couldn't find if with html/JavaScript I will be able to define those touch patterns to trigger a function. Or any other recommendations would be much appreciated, there is no rush, so I even have time to start learning new programming languages. Is there a easy way?

    PS: the company is Microsoft driven, he will be happy if I learn something which will help me in future projects. I have some xp in python too, but I guess that's out of the question Thank you,

    Have you looked in to jQuery Mobile? And jQuery touch events?

    I designed a 'clock in system' for my previous employer, which allowed the use of a tablet or touch screen to be used as a keyboard and interactive system similar to what you are talking about (with swipes and touch interaction). It worked great, so let me know if you need any other specific guidance
