Adafruit-2.8 TFTLCD TouchScreen Buttons

I recently purchased an Adafruit 2.8 TFT LCD Touchscreen and I'm trying to have 5 separate buttons on the display that will actuate 5 stepper motors. However, I don't know where to look to get started. I've tried playing around with the beginner tutorial that Adafruit provides, but I'm struggling to get an on screen push button to work.

Any reputable resources I could use to learn from?

What code? You did post in the Programming section, after all.

What problems are you having?

As a first step have you got the example code that sends the X,Y and Z data to Serial.print and does it work ?
