Gesture Events

Based on the low-level pointer events, the following gesture events are available in all three of qooxdoo's GUI toolkits (qx.Desktop, qx.Mobile and qx.Website):

  • tap: A brief finger/stylus tap or mouse click
  • longtap: A tap that is held down for 500 milliseconds
  • dbltap: Two taps in quick succession
  • swipe: Horizontal or vertical swipe motion
  • rotate: Two contact points (e.g. fingers) rotating around a central point
  • pinch: Two contact points moving towards or away from each other
  • track: Cross-device equivalent to mouse drag (fired only between pointerdown and pointerup)
