This snippet shows how to check whether a device has touch support in Python.


This API is available in S60 3rd Edition and S60 5th Edition and was introduced in PyS60 1.9.3.

Source code

import appuifw
#A try statement is used to prevent the code from crashing on versions prior to 1.9.3
if appuifw.touch_enabled():
appuifw.note(u"Touch is supported")
appuifw.note(u"Touch is not supported")
appuifw.note(u"Feature is not available")


A message indicating the availability of touch is displayed.
