rads got a reaction from bluehash in Energia - TivaC - Kenetc Display (SPI)
Solved. I have included all the libraries. The problem was in calling the getTouch function. I declared x,y,z as variables of type unsigned short and called the getTouch with x,y,z as parameters. The compilation was successful and the getTouch returns true on touching the screen and fills in the x,y,z values.
