Free use of touchscreen areas

Hello. It would be interesting to have the chance to declare freely different touchscreen areas to our applicactions. As far as I know, the only way to use touch areas in display is with an image and declared it as a touch object, but there is not an "touch area" object available to asign it the action when you press. Here an example in other image edition tool. Regards. Diego.

Hi Diego,

This is possible to achieve by using a Custom Button and assign a transparent image to properties Up image and Down image. The transparent image needs to be the same width and height as you want your touch area to be. Use you favorite bitmap editor to create a transparent rectangle and save it in the PNG format.

Of course it would be easier if we had a separate transparent touch control, so I also added a feature request for you.

With IQANdesign 6.05 the workaround is easier, one transparent SVG image could be used.
