Browsing Albums - Finger swipe function question

Postby kevind » Sun Oct 24, 2010 12:39 am

Dave

Is it me or is the finger swipe for loaded the next set of albums only working "forward"? IE finger swipe Right to Left advances next group of albums but Left to Right does nothing. I was expecting by logic that if we can finger swipe forward we should be able to finger swipe backward....know what I mean?

Try swiping up and down, not left and right.

It works both ways for me. The active swipe area is only the rectangle where the thumbnails are displayed. Make sure your swiping starts and stops in that area.

Ah, you need to add in an overlay to extend the swipe area to anyplace on the scene...
Thanks!

Not in this case. The thumbnail area is 90% of the screen. I need the other space for other click type events.

Why then does the vertical swipe not seem to work on my iPad? I wil test it out more and let you know.
Thanks!

iPad??? I haven't released anything for the iPad yet. The swipe areas are defined for the iPhone. Since an iPad has vastly different geometry you would have to modify the javascript to allow for a larger swipe area. Also, the javascript is only measuring left-right right-left delta changes. It ignores any up-down movements. So I'm amazed any of these pages work on a iPad.
