    extract the coordinate from sdk

    Dear all,

    I am a beginner for the symbian OS programming, I would like to ask if I can use the SDK Emulator to extract the coordinate on the screen?

    For my program, the users should be able to draw or write word on the touch screen as an input method.

    So I want to know if the SDK Emulator can emulate the touch screen input.

    Thanks a lot!!

    Support for pointer events (CCoeControl::HandlePointerEventL) is already there for a long time, however you obviously will not get such events on devices without touchscreen.

    thanks for your reply.
    So from your point of view, I can implement the software with handwritting input method for the touchscreen device by using symbian C++?

    Yes, you can get pointer events if the device supports that. And even if you do not have a device, many older emulators support pointer events (though the devices do not), if you can click on an icon in the emulator with your mouse (for example in the menu), the given emulator supports pointer events.
