Determine user clicks on your View (MapView) - Hit testing

Postby biosopher » Wed Mar 19, 2008 10:28 pm

I posted this in the Map section, but as many non-Map developers have asked a similar question, I wanted to post the info here as well.

Basically, the tutorial shows how to listen to mouse clicks on a view, determine whether the click was within the screen region you are testing for hits, and allows you to take the appropriate action.

In this case, we're listening for icon clicks in a MapView and displaying a popup window upon icon selection, but the technique is useful for any View you are creating yourself.


Please let me know if anything in the tutorial is not clear.

Happy coding,

thanks for this will prove useful to me!

can I ask would it be possible to adapt this code so that it knows when the location of the phone is within the hit area?
