<P style="MARGIN: 0px">Is there any way to have the roborun software recognize the virtual joystick as an input device so that I can control the robot via a tablet pc type setup?

<P style="MARGIN: 0px">This looks like an interesting object. Incorporating into the Roborun will require some work that we had not planned for.

<P style="MARGIN: 0px">See if you can find a virtual joystick like this but one that would behave like a real-joystick driver (i.e. that the OS would recognize and use as a regular joystick). Roborun uses Window's Joystick driver. So if you find one, it could be used without modifying anyting.

<P style="MARGIN: 0px">Incorporating such an object is not a huge job from a software development point of view. The biggest part is incorporating it inside the existing screens. As these are packed already, this means a lot of rework. Then, the size, shape and position of that would chose for virtual joystick is not likely to please every one.

<P style="MARGIN: 0px">If you have VB6, we have released source code in which you could easily incorporate that object and we would gladly support you with that.
