This toolkit includes controls, APIs, templates, documentation, and sample code for WPF on Windows Touch applications and a way for developers to prepare for the next version of Microsoft Surface. Before you can use the toolkit, you must’ve Windows 7 Operating System and Visual Studio 2010 or Microsoft Visual C# 2010 Express Edition, as well as Microsoft .NET 4.0 installed on your computer. .NET 4.0 Framework and Surface Toolkit support input devices such as mouse, stylus, and touch. With Surface Toolkit, you can develop an app that supports various types of input. To create great natural user interfaces, a focus on user experience design as well as testing on multi-touch hardware are essential. To test your app in a touch-enabled environment, your computer must have a touch-screen digitizer.
