Touch event help !!!!!

  • Hey Just Me,

    You're close. We can use the TouchStartEvent and the TouchEndEvent to track whether our finger has swiped left or right. Take a look at the script in this answer to detect different swipes:

    To check whether a double tap has occurred, we can similarly track TouchStartEvent. This time, however, we track whether we've tapped recently. 

    In the script below I put a reference to objectToToggle (in the object where this script is placed, in the Inspector panel, press the field "Object To Toggle" and select an object in the pop-up window). Then on the phone, when I double tap the screen, I am able to see the object toggle on and off. 

    // -----JS CODE-----
    // @input SceneObject objectToToggle

    // Prevent default touch event from firing
    global.touchSystem.touchBlocking = true;

    // Options
    var maxDelayBetweenDoubleTap = 1;

    // State
    var hasRecentlyTapped = false;

    // Gets called when double tap occurs
    function action() {
    script.objectToToggle.enabled = !script.objectToToggle.enabled;

    var event = script.createEvent("TouchStartEvent");
    if (hasRecentlyTapped) {
    // If has recently tapped, then it's a double tap
    hasRecentlyTapped = false;
    } else {
    // Start the countdown to how long before previous tap is not recent enough
    hasRecentlyTapped = true;

    var delayedEvent = script.createEvent("DelayedCallbackEvent");
    hasRecentlyTapped = false;


    Let me know if I can clarify anything. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
