    Are we talking about Flash here, or something else? If so, what version of Flash? And define: "touchscreen button."

    Well,

    I have aso encountered this problem with Samsung Star 3G. Whne I run the same SWF on nokia and Windows mobiles, buttons in SWF work when clicked, but with this particular mobile when I try to click teh buttons they never run the script on them...I think the event itself is not fired...

    If somebody has a solution please let us know!

    Hey mates..

    Can I request any update on this thread ?

    I was recently testing a simple FlashLite SWF on Samsung Star 3G which is a touchscreen mobile. When I touch the screen to click buttons, click event does not fires....where as same SWF works on Symbian and Windows mobiles.

    Note: Samsung Start 3G has in built FlashLite 2.1 in it.
    As ever,

    It may be that the fl player in this phone does not support touch screen and only keypress.

    there should be a fscommand2 to determine whether the Flash Lite player for a device supports touch screen events. Assuming the capabilities database, provided by the OEM, is accurate...
