Gestures
« on: September 03, 2019, 10:08:26 pm »
Has anyone thought about putting gestures message Handler in the LCL ?

it would need to ignore the system if the app was on an older OS that does not have the API's for it.

it's a matter of handling the WM_GESTURE

Or if the user was on an older OS that does not want to have the API's for it. Clown stuff.

Well, I have a graphics type module on a couple of my apps that has zoom, rotate, shift ect, things that the gestures would be perfect for if they were on a windows tablet type screen.

 I experimented a little with the WM_GESTURE after I found a place to get the constants for them.

 currently it's done with standard button and mouse actions.

I agree with you it can be implemented, actually it is already easy to handle with OnMessage. Slightly more cumbersome than downright high-level support, but working.
