How to implement touch swiping functionality in blackberry. please help anybody.

At present the only way I find to do such things is programmatically by hooking the four touch events and passing them to my own handler
I wrote such a handler for one of my apps but used it as a drag function
Rolling your own is not a simple task
An alternative that potentially works out of the box is Sencha Touch but that has a bit of a steep learning curve

My code simply understands the differerence at a mouse level
This is perfect for the intended job
I have been considering writing a library so that you can plug it directly in to your code
Such an undertaking is by no maeans something I can write in ten minutes
Should I embark on such a project I will do do at the urging of the community
I will be more than pleased to help you out over the swipe - just PM me and I'll see what I can do
Please bear in mind that I also want to release PB and fone apps so my time will be needed to be split between such tasks

Jason's sample is a great solution to a very popular question: how do I do swipe gestures on BlackBerry. There are certainly existing solutions such as jQuery and and Moosture, often developers are looking for a trimmed down solution that is easy to implement.
Jason - any interest in collaborating on a working sample that can be published in the BlackBerry developer's Knowledge Base?

Thanks, Jason and Adam.
This is very useful information. Is there any progress of adding this to the knowledge base? Since a playbook supports multiple points of contact, it would be interesting to see such an example, too.
