When i programmed a touch screen long ago, the touch screen controlled the windows mouse pointer, so no special programming in VB was required.

As far as I know, lschuele is correct.  The touch screen is a device that appears to the program as a mouse-click.  However, you will likely just be dealing with click and double-click events for the form and controls.  I don't know if you'll actually get mouse-up/mouse-down events or not (since there really are not any mouse buttons being pressed)

On the touch-screen I work with, it is just like a mouse, complete with up/down events.
