    I am considering making an assistance application for productivity purposes where you would be able to select different commands by holding down a key, getting an overlay up on top of everything like the gaze trace, selecting the command by gaze and then releasing the key to make the selection.

    First – any thoughts on the idea?

    Would anyone be able to tell me how to best make an overlay like the Gaze Trace feature in the EyeX tray application? (Or what method the tray application uses?)

    I would prefer using c# for coding it but c/c++ would also be a possibility if needed.

    I have dug up some things on DirectDraw overlays and hardware overlays, but got either rather old info or not very much.

    Just found this that allows me to do pretty much what I want with a WPF app which is great!

    Comments on the idea still very welcome!

    If you have a better solution than a “Topmost” WPF app please chime in 🙂

    It’s done in C++/DirectX and based on a heatmap algorithm.
