Title: Capacitive touch panel with FocalTech controller FT6236
Post by: SilasV on October 14, 2016, 12:33:20 AM
Hello
I am using CTP with controller FT6236 - I can get read registers over I2C and also get touch point co-ordinates (x,y values) also can get how many touch points - i.e. 1 or 2. But I am not able to get gesture ID - it always returns 0, I need to get single finger touch gestures like move up, move down, move left, move right or two fingers touch zoom in or zoom out. How can I get this? Are there any register settings that I am missing?
Thanks in advance..

Hello,

Our displays / CTP panels come with the FT5X06 controller.
Doing a quick search I wasn't able to find the register values for this controller.

I would recommend contacting the company you bought that from to see if they have any example code / drivers for this controller.

Hi Silas, I hope you're still around. I'm trying to use the FT6 controller too, did you get it to work?
