Swipe Left and Swipe Right Event in Blackberry using javaScript


I am developing an application which will show all the records available in Address Book ,

As I am using touch screen simulator i have to show the next / previous record on the swipe left and swipe right event


Now the problem is that , Is there any way to capture swipe left and swipe right events in my application using inbuild (already build ) api. Can any one provide me the code for the same.



Thanks in advance.

Re: Swipe Left and Swipe Right Event in Blackberry using javaScript

It's easy to do if you use a mobile framework. You will probably be able to use events like 'swipe'. With webworks you can use the touch events and calculate if the finger has moved in between two events.
