SwipeDown event is not generated

In my application i want to display application menu on swipe down event. When i add the following code on my application on beta1 device (10.0.4) i am able to get swipeDown() event but when i run the application on beta2 device(10.0.6) swipeDown() event is not generated. After searching on forum and release note i come to know that it is known limitation that swipeDown() event is not generated.


URL for realeasenote: https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/download/releasenotes/ and Issue number: 5347148.




int main(int argc, char **argv)
Application app(argc, argv);

QTranslator translator;
QString locale_string = QLocale().name();
QString filename = QString( "SampleNavigation_%1" ).arg( locale_string );
if (translator.load(filename, "app/native/qm")) {
app.installTranslator( &translator );

App mainApp;

QObject::connect(&app, SIGNAL(swipeDown()), &mainApp, SLOT(swipeDownMenu()));

return Application::exec();

We also tried with navigation event but that also not work.

Is there any workaround to generate swipeDown() event on beta2 device(10.0.6).

The corresponding Issue Tracker issue is https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/BBTEN-182


See http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Cascades-Development/Issue-to-do-a-quot-swipe-down-quot-menu/...


In many cases, Menu is what you want, in which case this issue does not affect you.


Be aware also of https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/BBTEN-192
