There is quite a lot of prior art and background work on the topics of touch-interface events and intentional/representational events. This page provides some of the background of the work on these topics.


Touch Interface

High-Level Events

  • Nokia Starlight Touch Documentation - documents WebKit touch events and proposed manipulate/transform events, including a specific mapping from low-level to high-level events implemented for Qt / WebKit on Windows 7.
  • nsIDOMSimpleGestureEvent (Mozilla) - defines events for magnify, rotate, multi-finger tap, and swipe. (Some of these are high-level "representational" events; others are mid-level "gestural" events.)
