Source code for kivy.input.postproc.calibration


.. versionadded:: 1.9.0

Recalibrate input device to a specific range / offset.

Let's say you have 3 1080p displays, the 2 firsts are multitouch. By default,
both will have mixed touch, the range will conflict with each others: the 0-1
range will goes to 0-5760 px (remember, 3 * 1920 = 5760.)

To fix it, you need to manually reference them. For example::

    left = mtdev,/dev/input/event17
    middle = mtdev,/dev/input/event15
    # the right screen is just a display.

Then, you can use the calibration postproc module::

    left = xratio=0.3333
    middle = xratio=0.3333,xoffset=0.3333

Now, the touches from the left screen will be within 0-0.3333 range, and the
touches from the middle screen will be within 0.3333-0.6666 range.
