Your description of the Text Screen as being similar to a full-screen field got me curious. I had not made that connection before. The text screen does detect touch. You can display fields on it, and SB knows where you are touching, since it will put the cursor into the field you touch.

I started to wonder "What would happen if you touched outside any fields created on the text screen?"

The answer - the touch command works in those areas! My next step was to create a tiny field in the upper corner of the TEXT screen. Now I can tape anywhere on screen and read the coordinates. You can also detect touches of any number and use them to trigger actions.

Code: Select all

Touch in Text Mode
rbytes, February 2019
FIELD "activate" TEXT "" AT 0,0 SIZE 1,1
PRINT "Touch with one finger to get screen coordinates in TEXT mode."
PRINT "Touch with two fingers to quit."
GET TOUCH 0 as x,y
GET TOUCH 1 as ox,oy
if x>-1 or y>-1 then print x,y
if ox>-1 then end
