The screen connected to my displaylink device (Toshiba dynadock) is touchscreen capable. It works beautifully with my Windows laptops but when I connect my Nexus android tablet to the dynadock, the touchscreen capabilities of my screen are ignored.
The touch screen controllers are separate from DisplayLink and there is no touch screen technology built into our ICs.
Touch screen support is enabled by customers integrating DisplayLink and a touch screen controller into the same product.
This means that the drivers for the touch screen controller differ between products and are not part of the DisplayLink driver.
For touch support on Android, the touch screen drivers would need to be integrated into the Android OS, and this is not something DisplayLink can do as we do not own the OS on phones or tablets.

Any idea why there is a problem using a Viewsonic touchscreen monitor with attached to a displaylink device? The monitor is DVI and the touch screen is driven by a separate USB 2.0 cable. Windows 10 sees both in its device manager and says they're working, but when I try to calibrate/use the touchscreen, it says there is no support for touch input....
So I spent my money on something that won't work for me?
