Hi, what is the method for triggering the two button magnet reset from software in the SDK? I found the EventLocQuality to detect magnetic interference, but in imagink there is a button to perform the two button magnet sensor reset. How do I do this? Please let me know, thanks!

Hello ,

You can use the refresh function of the Device class to reset the Slate from the API.
you can start by declaring a Device attribute like below :
Device *device;
Then you can retrieve the Device instance from the SlateManager :
device = &slateManager->getDevice();
After that you can call the refresh function: device->refresh();
Make sure to place magnetic objects at least 20 centimeters / 8 inches away (other iskn pen or ring, magnets, metal objects,etc) before starting the reset of the Slate.

The pen calibration is not possible from the API.
