Android – how to fire an event when someone clicks anywhere on the screen in an android app

androidevents

how can I catch the event when click occurs somewhere on the app screen?
It doesn't matter if there is a button or something else. I just need to apply an onClick() event listener on the whole application screen.

How to do this?

Best Solution

setonclicklistner for main layout of your layout file....

Like....main.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
        xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        xmlns:ads="http://schemas.android.com/apk/lib/com.google.ads"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent"
        android:id="@+id/mainlayout">
 <!- Your other view->
</Relativelayout>

and set click listener for mainlayout...

 RelativeLayout rlayout = (RelativeLayout) findViewById(R.id.mainlayout);
 rlayout.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {

    @Override
    public void onClick(View v) {

    }

 });
