Can I connect a touch screen shield and motor shield?

Would it be possible to interface these two things? So that I can use the touch screen to control the motor shield? Will this all fit on one device? Thank you.

and this for the motor shield http://dx.com/p/keyes-l293d-motor-control-shield-motor-drive-expansion-board-for-arduino-blue-227033

How would I go about interfacing these two things? Thank you

You need to look at which Arduino to want to use and then look at which pins are used by the motor shield and which are used by the touch screen.

If both shields use any of the same pins you have a problem.

Then you need to check that the libs you want to use don't requiere the same timers.

That motor shield looks like a cheap copy of this one —

I’d recommend getting the original. Just a few extra bucks, and much better support & quality (I’m sure).

And here’s how to use it -
