Hi osadasliit, It is possible to detect touch and click event in bb 4.7 and above by using touchEvent. here i am posting sample code to detecting touch and clcik event.



protected boolean touchEvent(TouchEvent message)
        // Retrieve the new x and y touch positions.               
        int x = message.getX(1);
        int y = message.getY(1);        
        int eventCode = message.getEvent();      
        if(eventCode == TouchEvent.DOWN)
        if(eventCode == TouchEvent.MOVE)
        else if(eventCode == TouchEvent.UP)
        return true;
