GestureRecognizer.CrossSliding Event


Occurs when a user performs a slide or swipe gesture (through a single touch contact) within a content area that supports panning along a single axis only. The gesture must occur in a direction that is perpendicular to this panning axis.


A swipe is a short sliding gesture that results in a selection action while the longer slide gesture crosses a distance threshold and results in a rearrange action. The swipe and slide gestures are demonstrated in the following diagram. Diagram showing the select and drag actions.

gestureRecognizer.addEventListener("crosssliding", onCrossSliding);
