Let’s look at Scribble – First PyS60 Touch Application

by Bogdan Galiceanu

Python for S60 1.9.3 was the first release to support touch events. In order to give us an idea of how touch detection can be used, the PyS60 team included an application in the 1.9.3 package: Scribble. The script – scribble.py – can be found in the PyS60 source archive but for convenience we are making it available here.

Scribble is an application similar to Window’s Paint (well, sort of).  It allows you to draw free lines and points of various colours and widths. If analyzed thoroughly, the source code can give some hints on how to use touch in Python.
