Talk:Detecting and handling multi-touch events in Windows Phone 7 applications

Hamishwillee - So, where is the description?

Hi sreeraj vr

Your description of the article says "I am going to describe a very simple application I’ve developed while playing around with multi-touch functionality in Windows Phone 7." However all I see is a code dump - this isn't an application and there isn't any description.

To make this useful you would need to describe what the application is supposed to do, why it is useful, provide links to any source references you learned to created it (e.g. on MSDN) and also any tricks/tips associated with using this code - ie what if you want to detect multi-touch events on a map control as opposed to over the top of some other control. That way not only can people easily use your code, but they can work out when the code is not so useful, and extend it to other use cases. Does that make sense?

Even better, if you could compare and contrast the handling of touch events and gestures with Qt and Windows Phone, showing the differences.

Jerry Nixon - Conflicting information

First you say: "If multiple fingers are pressed on the screen, GetPrimaryTouchPoint returns data about the first finger that makes contact with the screen."

Then you say: "Windows Phone guaranteed to support four simultaneous touch points."

In my testing (Windows Phone 8), this event will NOT support simultaneous touches.

The conflict I am seeing is with the double-two-finger-tap for visual accessibility. I wonder if it can be disabled.

Hamishwillee - Well yes

Hi Jerry

The author may not be watching this article - they didn't respond to the post above from a year ago. I suggest perhaps if you want to ask a specific question, instead posting in the discussion boards.

I am going to add a warning that this article is not to quality standard, because I really don't see how we can trust it based on my comment and your findings.
