Trackpad touch events


#1

Hello Jules et all, are you guys working on adding touch event support for OSX?  I'd like to be able to detect trackpad touch events so I can respond to gestures and the like.  

Thanks!

Not sure about direct access to the touchpad - is that even possible? But better gesture support in general, yes, we intend to do that.

If by "direct" you mean api's for basic/fine-grained touch activity then yes it is available (along with the builtin gesture types as well)  I've tested it out with a basic cocoa app and confirmed the behaviour is what I'm looking for and the following link has an overview of it all. (covers gestures first and touch events are further down, all standard stuff).  Anyway, glad to hear you have some plans for it!  I may have a go at hacking it in the meanwhile.
