    Drawing Tablet C++ API ?

    Are there any C++ API's for dealing with pen tablets? Such as the XP-Pen Deco Pro Drawing Tablet ?

    For instance if I wanted to access the pen and properties such as how much pressure is being applied to the pen, or where on the tablet it is writing. I know that the drivers that come with the tablets usually make windows think it is a mouse, but I have not found a way to access a few properties, such as the 'pressure' being applied to the end of a pen.

    Is there a generic API for doing this for all graphics tablets?

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
