Hi all, not a problem as such just like to know the reason. I have a tablet with a capacitive screen, using a finger or a conductive probe/stylus
it works fine as it should. If I use a piece of wire or or any other conductor ie a coin, nothing happens. I don't intend poking it with wire or anything else but would like some one to explain please out of curiosity more than any other reason.
Chronos, thanks for the link. these screens are far more complex than I thought, clever stuff. Having played around with some other bits I am of the opinion that is something to do with the size of the contact area with the screen as you suggested. Too large is as bad as too small it seems.
