Boost TabletPc pen responsiveness


Weeell. As you know, I love sketching little pictures for supporting my point in my posts, and the tabletpc pen is simply perfect for that: it’s really the most natural thing to use!
It’s very frustrating when you stumple into drawing software that exhibits sorry performance with the pen: however it’s usually enough to raise the priority of tabtip.exe to get around the issue. I automated the process by using a small exe, that switches the priority from normal to high and from high to normal: I just call it before drawing and after drawing. Actually, rather than “small” I should say “tiny”: the entire code is:


namespace PenBooster


{


    class Program


    {


        static void Main(string[] args)


        {


            Process[] TabTipArr = Process.GetProcessesByName(“tabtip”);           


            if (TabTipArr.Length != 0)


            {


                Process TabTip = TabTipArr[0];


                if (TabTip.PriorityClass == ProcessPriorityClass.Normal)


                    TabTip.PriorityClass = ProcessPriorityClass.High;


                else


                    TabTip.PriorityClass = ProcessPriorityClass.Normal;


            }


        }


    }


}



Naturally, fiddling with process priority is never good for the system: if you decide to do the same, you do it at your own risk 🙂 the code above is for sample purposes only, comes with no guarantee whatsoever, etc etc
