Interactions: Support Pointer Events

Reported by: paul Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 2.0.0
Component: ui.mouse Version: 1.6rc6
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

jQuery UI should support touchscreen platforms like iPhone and Opera for Wii. The attached patch adds full iPhone support to $.ui.mouse.

Only two plugins need additional patches in order to work:

  • Resizable (uses mouseover for handle detection, should be refactored anyway)
  • Selectable (Lasso works fine, clicking does not)

  • iphone.patch (3.6 KB) - added by paul February 13, 2009 02:24PM UTC.

Patch that makes most interaction plugins work in Safari iPhone

Any idea when this will be included? I read in an Old Nabble discussion that it was going to be in 1.8. I guess not?

Here's the nabble discussion:

Here's a more recent forum thread:

Some progress was made before 1.8 final, but iPhone support will not be added until it is more complete. It is something that's being worked on.

I tried to do the same some time ago:



The good thing is there is no need to change original mouse widget, my wrapper just can be added.

It works but it could be slow because its still not hardware accelerated. To do that all widgets changing position of element over top, left props have to move this stuff into extra method, we can then overwrite them with css3 transitions.

Has anybody got at least a working slider?

This was opened 5 years ago and slider is still unusable on an ipad!!

I guess there is some quick hack somewhere out there?

Use Touch Punch until the interaction rewrite lands with the Pointer Events polyfill.

Changing this ticket to the actual solution we're going with. We won't explicitly support Touch Events; for browsers that implement Touch Events but not Pointer Events, a polyfill such as PEP will be required.
