View Full Version : Tap, doubletap & taphold on one component

Hi folks

I want to handle tap, doubletap and taphold separately for a single component, is there a code sample anywhere, I've not been able to nail it!

You can attach multiple events like those interactive ones to the component's element once it has been added to the page (or rendered, not sure, as it's not well documented yet). See my question asking for examples for a current method for attaching them (just add more listeners) http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?105114-Inline-method-for-attaching-dom-events

Search this forum for my post with subject: Inline method for attaching dom events
Has an example that currently works, but you need to wait for the element to be added/rendered/instantiated (not sure which yet)

They really need to stop monitoring posts that include hyperlinks to other posts...


Especially seeing that you can just edit a post to include it :)

Thanks guys.

My bad, I phrased my question wrong :S

I'm really interested in how you tell the difference between which event was raised, "tap" seems to always get called. I tried a couple of tricks, and inspecting the dom, but couldn't find a clean solution.

I also saw another post that said, "just do it the way you would normally". Anyone know what the regular approach to this is?

Tab gets fired before doubletap (and probably taphold as well) just as click gets fired before doubleclick. Most of the other events like slide and pinch are based of base events like tap if you look in the event manager.

Thanks for the reply. I was really interested in setting up and handling both doubletap and tap on one component, without them interfering with each other! The problem is that tap always gets called first, do how do you know it's a double tap?

Anyway, this seems to work well (add to your Container/Component or whatever)...

setupEventHandlers: function(){
this.mon(this.el, {
tap: function(e){
if(this.delayedTask == null){
//setup a delayed task that is called IF double click is not later detected
this.delayedTask = new Ext.util.DelayedTask(
this.delayedTask = null;
}, this);

//invoke (with reasonable time to cancel)
doubletap: function(e){
//cancel and clear the queued single click tasks if it's there
if(this.delayedTask != null){
this.delayedTask = null;

//handle the double click
scope: this

Yep, that's pretty much the universal single/double method... the millisecond time is tweaked by your design dept, then you move on :)

Hey, I found a way with no delay if anyone is still tooking after it...if I apply singletap, taphold and touchend there is a combination to do which allow each event to happen with no delay and attach different functionality to them...

taphold: function(ev,el){
function(){//do your things};
this.longpressed = true;
scope.longpressed = false;
scope.isTouchended = false;
}, 500, this)
singletap: function(ev,el){
this.isTouchended = false;
function(){//do your things};
touchend: function(){
this.isTouchended = true;
