Android BasicMultitouch Sample

Sample demonstrates the use of MotionEvent properties to keep track of individual touches across multiple touch events.


This is an example of keeping track of individual touches across multiple MotionEvents.

This sample uses a custom View (TouchDisplayView) that responds to touch events and draws a colored circle for each touch point. The view holds data related to a touch pointer, including its current position, pressure, and its past touch history.

The View draws graphics based on data associated with each touch event to a canvas. A large circle indicates the current position of a touch, while smaller trailing circles represent previous positions for that touch. The size of the large circle is scaled depending on the pressure of the user's touch.
