Tap with the help of coordinates in Android

I am trying to tap on particular location/place by finding coordinates of that location. I don’t want find element, I want to find coordinates and then click on that particular position. Please help me to do this.

You can get the screen dimensions using

Dimension dimens = driver.manage().window().getSize();
double xCoordinate = dimens.getWidth() * 0.5;
double yCoordinate = dimens.getHeight() * 0.5;
//you may have to cast these values to int

Using these values in a tap for example:

driver.tap(1, xCoordinate, yCoordinate, 800);

will cause Appium to tap in the middle of the screen using one finger for 800 milliseconds.

With current version of Java client 5.0.0-BETA6, tap is deprecated. Below solution needs to be used

new TouchAction(getDriver()).tap(xCoordinate, yCoordinate).perform();

To who is looking for C# Appium:

AppiumDriver _myDriver;

_myDriver = new AndroidDriver(new Uri(“”), cap);

TouchAction touchHere = new TouchAction(_myDriver );
touchHere.Tap(993, 1953).Perform();

//993 is x coordinates, and 1953 is y coordinates

TouchAction action= new TouchAction(driver);
action.press(271, 642).release().perform();
