Triple-Tap on a View Using onTouchListener Object in Android
To detect a triple tap i.e. whenever the user triple taps on any view how it is detected and according to the view a response can be added corresponding to it. Here an example is shown in which the user triple taps on the view, it is detected and corresponding to the view response is added in the form of toast.
Step 1: Create an Empty activity in Android Studio. To create one, follow this article- https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/android-how-to-create-start-a-new-project-in-android-studio/. Check if the primary language selected is Kotlin.
Step 2: No change is done in activity_main.xml. Since already a textview is present so the response for the triple tap is added with it.
Step 3: In this step add the onTouchListenter with the view. Here in the listener initialize a variable to 1 which will keep the count of taps user has done. If the tap counts in a short time becomes 3 then the response corresponding to the view is initiated. Below is the code for the MainActivity.kt class.
