Defining a Custom Android Handset
K-Touch supports iOS and Android mobile devices as its touch screens. While K-Touch natively supports many common Android devices,
there are many on the market with different screen sizes and resolutions that cannot be covered. For this reason we offer the ability to
create a custom Android handset that can be tailored to any Android powered mobile device.
1.
Open the K-Touch Builder and click add handset.
2.
Select Android and click Next.
3.
Select Android Custom and click finish.
4.
Determine the resolution of your Android device:
To create a GUI that fits your device, we must tell the builder what the size of your device is.
The easiest way to get this information is using our K-Touch app.
■
Download the K-Touch app from the Google Play Store and run it.
■
Go to settings and you find the device information shown below.
5.
Define your custom Android handset
After creating the handset, customize this handset to the specific device you are using
in the properties of the handset.
■
Screen Width (Portrait): In the portrait orientation of the device, how many pixels wide is the screen? Note: use the information from
the previous step
■
Screen Height (Portrait): In the portrait orientation of the device, how many pixels high is the screen? Note: use the information
from the previous
step
■
Top Margin: Area at the top of the screen reserved by the operating system. Note: use the information from the previous step
■
Bottom Margin: Area at the bottom of the screen reserved by the operating system. Note: use the information from the previous step

Full Screen Mode
K-Touch 3.1 introduces the new feature, Full Screen Mode, that allows you to take advantage of every pixel of whatever mobile device
you are using for the most immersive K-Touch experience yet. Note: Applies to Android 4.4 and onwards.

Notice the difference when full screen mode is set to 'no'. The black bars at
the top and bottom of the screen have been eliminated in full screen mode.
Creating a Handset
A handset is the hardware control interface (iPad, iPhone, Galaxy S, etc.) for K-Touch.
A single project can use multiple handsets when there are multiple interfaces controlling the same devices.
To create a new handset:
1. Open the New Handset Wizard
■
After signing in to Builder navigate to
File > New Handset
2.
Choose a Device Type
■
Select and click either iOS or Android.
■
Click Next.
3. Select the Device you are Using
This selection is important since a GUI designed for a specific handset can only sync with said handset.
■
Click the drop-down box to select the handset model that matches the handset you want to create.
■
For an Android platform, choose from an extensive list of devices. If your exact model does not appear, select a handset that
matches the resolution of your handset.
■
When done, click Next.
4. Select a Theme
Selecting a theme populates your image library with buttons that fit your device and follow the selected theme. You can always add
additional images to your project later.
■
Click the drop-down box to choose from
black gloss, white gloss or
brushed metal
buttons.
■
When done, click Next.
5.
Import Controllable Devices
In this step, the software asks you which devices to import into your K-Touch project.
■
Click Device Library.
■
To narrow down the extensive list, enter the Vendor Name and
Type.
■
Click Filter.
■
To select the device, click the checkbox on the left.
■
Click Import.
6. Click Finish
Your new handset is created and the builder automatically populated image libraries based on the size / resolution of your handset for
the button theme you chose.
Find image libraries on the right-hand side of your screen in the Images tab.
