NOTE: the Web Events Working Group closed in November 2013 because it completed its technical work with the publication of the 10 October 2013 Touch Events Recommendation. As such, this document is NO longer maintained.

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.)
