(serial - RS232?). Before purchasing a touch screen for use with Photon,
what should we check up in the specifications? We require to use a touc
screen for 10" LCD monitor.
What exactly is involved in configuring the touch screens for Photon?

I have been using the Elotouch resistive touchscreen for many years now; it
responds to the Smartset protocol, which Photon/Input supports. It works
well, but the plastic membrane that serves as the touch surface wears out
with time. Your mileage may vary.
I have also been using the Dynapro near-field imaging touchscreen off and on
over the past two years. I had to write my own driver for it, but so far it
works very well. It has the advantage of having a glass touch surface, which
never wears out. The biggest disadvantage is that it is quite a bit more
expensive than the resistive touchscreen.
We use a company locally who builds custom enclosures for either touchscreen
technology. They also have off-the-shelf touchscreens, and they can provide
full PC solutions as well. www.hmwent.com. I am not affiliated with them,
but they have given us good service over the years.

We require a touch-screen for our 10"LCD monitor used with QNX 4.25.
Which make/model of touchscreen is recommended for use with QNX/Photon?
