2 days ago, during Microsoft event , I was also shocked by another device Dial Surface. Although showed it always using it with a Surface Studio, it is also compatible with Surface Pro 4, so I’ll try one as soon as I can.
Although of course, the Windows 10 Creators Update version is now available in the Fast Ring of Windows Insiders. This led me to think that perhaps we had new APIs for this device, and there they were: MSDN Radial Controller Class.
What also caught my attention is that on GitHub we could find examples of use of these APIs in Win32 apps and UWP. And an excellent guide of interaction, that surely will help to them minds more simple (as the mine) to understand the best way of using this device.
As well, I leave all of this pointed to here, and as soon as the device is on sale and you can get one, I retrieve this topic!
