In a custom view how would it be possible to get how much of a finger touched the screen. In other words, to get if the user used the tip of his finger or a larger area. And then to be able to get each dimension of the rectangle.

Solution 1

event.getPointerCount()
method call gives you number of touch

Sample Code:

@Override
public boolean onTouchEvent(final MotionEvent event)
{
    System.out.println("Touch Count ="+event.getPointerCount());
 
    return true;
}

not really what i'm looking for. I'm looking for code that can give you basically a rectangle that represents the area that was touched.
