Unformatted text preview: Touch & Gestures   MotionEvents   Touch Handling   Gestures   Represents a movement in an input device reading   e.g., pen, trackball, mouse, finger   Records event’s time, action, pressure, location, source, and more.   Some common MotionEvent actions   ACTION_DOWN   ACTION_UP   ACTION_POINTER_DOWN   ACTION_POINTER_UP   ACTION_MOVE   Some useful MotionEvent methods   getPointerCount()   getActionIndex()   getActionMasked()   getX()   getY()   View.onTouchEvent() delivers MotionEvent to the View being touched   If subclassing, onTouchEvent(), return true if the MotionEvent has been consumed; false otherwise   View.OnTouchListener defines touch event callback methods   onTouch() called when user performs a touch event, such as pressing, releasing or dragging an item on the screen   Should return true if it has consumed the event   View.setOnTouchListener() registers listener for Touch callbacks   1 ­touch – each touch is a single event   Process ACTION_DOWN, ACTION_MOVE & ACTION_UP independently   2+ ­touch – multiple touches combined to form a gesture   Identify & process combinations of touches such as ACTION_DOWN, followed by ACTION_POINTER_DOWN   Some common Gestures can be recognized by GestureDetectors ▪  E.g., double tap, fling, confirmed single tap, etc. #1 touch #2 touch #1 lift #2 lift Action ACTION_DOWN ACTION_MOVE ACTION_POINTER_DOWN ACTION_MOVE ACTION_MOVE ACTION_POINTER_UP ACTION_UP ID 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 #1 touch #2 touch #2 lift #1 lift Action ACTION_DOWN ACTION_MOVE ACTION_POINTER_DOWN ACTION_MOVE ACTION_MOVE ACTION_POINTER_UP ACTION_UP ID 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 #1 touch #2 touch #3 touch #2 lift #1 lift #3 lift Action ACTION_DOWN ACTION_POINTER_DOWN ACTION_POINTER_DOWN ACTION_MOVE ACTION_POINTER_UP ACTION_POINTER_UP ACTION_UP ID 0 1 2 0 1 0 2 public class IndicateTouchLocationActivity extends Activity { public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { … final FrameLayout frame = … frame.setOnTouchListener(new OnTouchListener() { public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) { int actionCode = event.getActionMasked(); for (int i = 0; i < event.getPointerCount(); i++) { switch (actionCode) { case /* interesting motion event */ : { // make a view showing touch location frame.addView(/* new view */); … public class ViewFlipperTestActivity extends Activity { private ViewFlipper mFlipper; private int mCurrentLayoutState; private GestureDetector gd; public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { … mFlipper = (ViewFlipper) findViewById(R.id.view_flipper); mCurrentLayoutState = 0; …. … gd = new GestureDetector(this, new GestureDetector.SimpleOnGestureListener() { public boolean onFling( MotionEvent e1, MotionEvent e2, float velocityX, float velocityY) { if (velocityX <  ­10.0f) { /* change view */ } return true; } }); } public boolean onTouchEvent(MotionEvent event) { return gd.onTouchEvent(event); }   GestureBuilder allows developers to create & save custom gestures   GestureLibraries supports loading custom gestures & recognizing then at runtime   GestureOverlayView intercepts user gestures and invokes application code to handle them   Comes bundled with emulator   Stores gestures to /mnt/sdcard/gestures   Copy this file to /res/raw directory   View intercepts gestures   Invokes OnGesturePerformedListener public class GesturesActivity extends Activity implements OnGesturePerformedListener { private GestureLibrary mLibrary; public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { … mLibrary = GestureLibraries.fromRawResource(this, R.raw.gestures); if (!mLibrary.load()) { finish(); } GestureOverlayView gestures = (GestureOverlayView) findViewById(R.id.gestures); gestures.addOnGesturePerformedListener(this); … } … … public void onGesturePerformed( GestureOverlayView overlay, Gesture gesture) { ArrayList<Prediction> predictions = mLibrary.recognize(gesture); if (predictions.size() > 0) { Prediction prediction = predictions.get(0); if (prediction.score > 1.0) { // Check prediction.name and take appropriate action } } } }   TouchIndicateTouchLocation   TouchGestureViewFlipper   TouchGestures ...
