Your memory is wrong about the swipe events though, I believe.  I'm under the impression no touch events of any kind are generated on the simulator right now, swipe or gesture (if those are the appropriate names for the two categories).


Here's a sample using a SWIPE_DOWN to show a menu. This is the Bezel-swipe though and not an in-app swipe. Thats what i'm thinking of, anyway.

Re: Gesture events on Simulator

Ah, the QNX swipe events... yes.  I know a little bit about those. ;-)

 

Sorry, I thought you were referring to the standard flash.events.GestureEvent stuff, which is not supported yet.

Re: Gesture events on Simulator

Possibly the SimTouch package would be of some use.  It even appears to describe the same basic architecture I mentioned, with a socket connection.  I haven't done more than look at a paragraph or two on the referenced page though...

Re: Gesture events on Simulator

Or for a different approach (in-app, it appears) you might be able to use the commercial GestureWorks package.
