The core Phidget class deals with functionality common to all Phidgets, such as opening and closing them, or setting Attach, Detach and Event handlers.

This class is also used to specify the associations between the Phidget software objects and their corresponding physical devices, and makes it possible to determine which Phidget is which in cases where it might otherwise be ambiguous.

This class contains various functions such as Release, Retain, and getParent designed to be used with the Phidget Manager. These specialized functions may be safely ignored if your application does not require a Manager. You can check the Manager API for more information.

All errors are reported as exceptions.
And MBS Plugin schedules all events to raise on main thread, so you can easily update GUI.
