THIS WILL ONLY WORK ON THE SAMSUNG SERIES 7 SLATE AND ASUS EP121 SLATE.
EDIT: There's some report that ArtDock may not work well with Windows 8. Specifically, the touch on/off doesn't work unless you reboot. There's also a report that it stops working after a touch screen firmware upgrade. Use as your own risk. I don't have Win8 so I can't test this out yet.
This script base on the original RawInputControlTest.ahk found at:[link]
And on adjustments made by tbaldree at:[link]
This dock support Photoshop, SketchBook Pro, Paint Tool Sai, MyPaint, ZBrush, Maya, Topogun, Silo and 3DS Max.
Click on Download to try out the script. You'll need to install Autohokey for it to work.

I been looking for a mobile ZBrush solution for years now and finally found it in the Samsung Series 7 Slate. It's awesome! I been playing with it for the last few months and probably sold about 20 of these just by showing it around. About 12 of them being my coworkers at Naughty Dog. But there was one big problem: Hotkeys. ZBrush and several art programs requires them and carrying around keyboards and other devices didn't make them truly portable. This is when we stumble across the original virtual hotkey script. It was almost perfect being able to touch the sceen for hotkeys while using the stylus.
At first I was only going to customized it for my personal use with ZBrush but having had convinced several people in buying this Slate, I felt a bit obligated to extend it to other art programs. So I dusted off what little programming I knew and started learning Autohokey scripting. Using some of my coworkers as QA, I think I have a pretty good script that eliminates a need for a keyboard attachment.
New things I've added is a Menu system for going between different art scripts, a horizontal slider button, a vertical slider button with delay (so toggle keys are sent one at a time), a helper dock for multiple docks in portrait view, and an appdock for extra docks to load up such as the Number Pad.
*Update: There's some confusion on the blue buttons. They all can be single tap in addition to flick/sliding. The flick types are light blue and now the sliding type are dark blue.
*Update: Asus EP121 Slate is now supported.
*Update: Silo and 3DS Max are now supported. Included instructions on how to edit MenuDock.
