Hi,

is there an API to control the MacBook Pro TouchBar? Would be very helpful.
Best regards,

its kind of like a small touch display, 1cm in height, and 20cm in width.
Depending on the activated program, it is filled with toolbar icons, and is interactive.
Clicking on the Speaker symbol, will popup a slider to adjust the volume.
Pressing the Fn key on the keyboard will popup all function keys.
While typing this message, it shows proposals for words which would fit to the chars you keyed in.
All Mac programs do show under Menu View not only "Customise Toolbar", but also "Customise Touch Bar".
In Short, the Touch Bar is a programable touch screen area where normally the F1-F12 keys resides.

As always many manufacturers like to copy Apple inventions, so it could be common in the near future for all Operating Systems.
Best regards,
Rob.
