TouchFREE TOOLING FOR web
& QUICK START GUIDE
TouchFree Tooling for Web is a lightweight client that can be integrated into your Web application, turning it touchless with minimal development effort.
This Quick Start Guide will show you how to import the client into your Web application. For more details visit the TouchFree User Manual on our Developer Resources Site.
Using the Quick Start Examples
Once you have imported TouchFree Tooling, a Quick Start Example webpage is provided.
This will allow you to test that TouchFree Tooling is working with TouchFree Service. It also serves as an example of how to integrate TouchFree Tooling. This page can be found in the Examples directory in the TouchFree Tooling for Web package.
Integrating TouchFree Tooling
Once you have the example page running, you’re ready to integrate TouchFree Tooling into your own application. You can reference the raw HTML of the Quick Start Example for the setup required to access the TouchFree Tooling.
We recommend duplicating the Quick-Start_Example.js and modifying it in order to make changes. This will prevent the file being overwritten when upgrading to newer versions of Tooling in future.
Note that this file depends on the content of TouchFree_Tooling.js being available under the name TouchFree.
We have a collection of TouchFree Tooling Examples on GitHub that you can use to learn how to integrate features of TouchFree Tooling into your application.
