    S60 is going to support touchscreen soon, you can find announcements on the Internet. However current S60 devices have no touchscreen.
    The API will probably originate from Symbian's already existing touchscreen support, you can find CCoeControl::HandlePointerEventL, it exists from the very beginning.
    The emulators already support pointer events, you have probably noticed that it is possible clicking on list/grid elements for example.

    Well, the old emulators did support touch (or rather click events) however the later ones do not have this feature enabled anymore.

    The problem is not the lack of support in the platform, as wizard_hu_ said, the support was always* there at Symbian level, but the lack of hardware support. Touch UI requires ... touch sensitive screen and no amount of software can compensate for that.

    I wouldn't use this at all but especially in the context of this questions this request is really hilarious. :)

    Re: Touch screen in symbian

    yes...In S60 5th edition, I am able to select listbox items using touch screen.
    But, Can I switch between views using touch screen ?
    Like,
    If I press Item 1 in Listbox, it has to open view1
    If I press Item 2 in Listbox, it has to open view2

    Currently, I am able to select items from listbox using touch screen.
    But for switching the views, I have to select the item & get the index of item
    and options->Open, then depending upon index, it switches View1/View2

    Cant I directly open View1/View2 by clicking listbox items ?

    If yes, which API I have to use for enabling that ?
    Regards,
    Sunitha.M

    Whatever change happens with the listbox (say some item is selected) you will be notified through the MEikListBoxObserver interface and once the event received it is entirely up to you what you will do with it, nothing stops you from calling ActivateViewL. See CS001148 - Handling new touch-related MEikListBoxObserver events for more info.
