love.touch.getPosition

Available since LÖVE 0.10.0
This function is not supported in earlier versions.

Gets the current position of the specified touch-press, in pixels.

Function

Synopsis

x, y = love.touch.getPosition( id )

Arguments

light userdata id
The identifier of the touch-press. Use love.touch.getTouches, love.touchpressed, or love.touchmoved to obtain touch id values.

Returns

number x
The position along the x-axis of the touch-press inside the window, in pixels.
number y
The position along the y-axis of the touch-press inside the window, in pixels.

Notes

The unofficial Android and iOS ports of LÖVE 0.9.2 reported touch-press positions as normalized values in the range of [0, 1], whereas this API reports positions in pixels.

Examples

Draw a circle at each location in the window where a touch press is active.

function love.draw()
    local touches = love.touch.getTouches()
 
    for i, id in ipairs(touches) do
        local x, y = love.touch.getPosition(id)
        love.graphics.circle("fill", x, y, 20)
    end
end
