Multi-touch support

Hello!

 

I'm currently working on a Cascades app and had a very basic question about current multi-touch support. 

 

If I touch and hold an element (I'm only handling touch-down and release events), touch events for any other elements are not handled.

 

Is there a way to get around this while purely using cascades? If not, are there any other options that I may have? Or anything coming down the pipe?

 

Thank you for your help! :smileyhappy:

Re: Multi-touch support

Hi there, welcome to our forums!

 

Unfortunately, multi-touch is nut currently supported. It will be available on our API site as well as the roadmap when that becomes the case.

 

Roadmap: https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/download/roadmap/

API: https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/

 

Good luck and let us know if you have any other questions.

 

Cheers,

 

Martin

Kind of curious about this as well, when I attended the BB Jam Enterprise Edition in Torronto they advertised multitouch being a major feature of the platform and said we could create our apps with support for up to 4 seperate touch points.  doesnt seem to be major if we still can't interact with it :smileysad:

 

Edit -- looks as though mutli touch is possible from C++ here's an example

Offical release in app world 

 

(It managed to get & track 10 simultaneous touch points)

Re: Multi-touch support

This page in the official documentation seem to imply it's possible to use multi-touch in Cascade apps.

Made me happy at least, since my current design relies quite heavily on them. :smileyvery-happy: 

 

(Haven't confirmed the support yet myself thou)
