Not able to swipe in tab menu in bbui



I am using the tab menu provided by bbui.


<div data-bb-type="screen" data-bb-effect="fade">
	  <div data-bb-type="action-bar"   data-bb-tab-style="highlight">
      <div data-bb-type="action" data-bb-style="tab" data-bb-overflow="true" data-bb-img="cog.png">Do Something</div>
      <div data-bb-type="action" data-bb-style="tab" data-bb-overflow="true" data-bb-img="cog.png">Smart</div>
      <div data-bb-type="action" data-bb-style="tab" data-bb-overflow="true" data-bb-img="cog.png">Delete</div>

But the menu opens only on click of the action bar.  I am not able to swipe to open the menu. I want to do it similar to the contacts application in bb10.


How can it be acheived. I tried the sample code provided but it is also not allowing me to swipe.


<div data-bb-type="action-bar">
		<div id="tabAction" data-bb-type="action" data-bb-style="tab" data-bb-selected="true" data-bb-img="images/actionBar/cog_dark_theme.png" onclick="alert('You clicked Find');">Find</div>
		<div id="tabOverflowAction" data-bb-type="action" data-bb-style="tab" data-bb-overflow="true" data-bb-img="images/actionBar/cog_dark_theme.png" onclick="alert('You clicked Overflow');">Overflow</div>
		<div id="findAction" data-bb-type="action" data-bb-style="button"  data-bb-img="images/actionBar/cog_dark_theme.png" onclick="alert('You clicked Find');">Find</div>
		<div id="actionOverflowAction" data-bb-type="action" data-bb-style="button" data-bb-overflow="true" data-bb-img="images/actionBar/cog_dark_theme.png" onclick="alert('You clicked Find 2');">Find 2</div>

 What am I doing wrong. Please help.

Re: Not able to swipe in tab menu in bbui

You're probably not doing anything wrong. It doesn't work in the samples app either and it appears that this is a feature that hasn't been ported yet from Cascades to bbUI. There may even be a licensing restriction preventing it from being added.
