 This example demonstrate about How use action down event in android.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:gravity="center"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   tools:context=".MainActivity"
   android:orientation="vertical">
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/actionEvent"
      android:textSize="40sp"
      android:layout_marginTop="30dp"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="match_parent" />
</LinearLayout>

In the above code, we have taken a text view to perform action down event.

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package com.example.myapplication;

import android.annotation.SuppressLint;
import android.os.Build;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.annotation.RequiresApi;
import android.support.v4.view.MotionEventCompat;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.MotionEvent;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   TextView textView;
   @SuppressLint({"RestrictedApi", "ClickableViewAccessibility"})
   @RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.N)
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      TextView actionEvent = findViewById(R.id.actionEvent);
      actionEvent.setText("Action Down");
      actionEvent.setOnTouchListener(new View.OnTouchListener() {
         @Override
         public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) {
            int action = MotionEventCompat.getActionMasked(event);
            if (action == MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN) {
               Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Clicked on textview", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
               return true;
            }
            return false;
         }
      });
   }
}
