  • Publication number: 20180039393
    Abstract: One or more touch input signals can be obtained from a touch sensitive device. A touch event model can be used to determine touch and/or gesture events based on the touch input signals. The touch and gesture events can be associated with touch input signals generated from different regions of a web page displayed on the touch sensitive device. Access can be provided to at least one touch or gesture event through a programming interface.

  • Patent number: 9323335
    Abstract: An electronic device receives touch input signals associated with a respective region of a web page. The respective region of the web page is associated with a plurality of event handlers or event listeners including an event handler or listener for a touch event and an event handler or listener for a gesture event. In response to receiving the touch input signals, the device sends a gesture event to the web page. The gesture event corresponds to a combination of two or more touch events, and the two or more touch events correspond to the touch input signals. The device dynamically rotates an element associated with the respective region of the web page with the event handler or listener for the gesture event based on a rotation value associated with the gesture event, and sends the touch events to the web page for processing, distinct from the dynamically rotating.

  • Patent number: 8723822
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a touch event, where the touch event includes a plurality of touch lists. The plurality of touch lists includes one or more of: a first touch list for one or more touches associated with a target of the touch event, a second touch list for one or more changed touches, and a third touch list for all touches detected on a touch-sensitive surface. The method includes processing the touch event.

  • Patent number: 8411061
    Abstract: One or more touch input signals can be obtained from a touch sensitive device. If the touch input signals are associated with one or more regions of a web page displayed on the touch sensitive device, a touch event associated with the regions of a web page is processed by the web page. Otherwise, the touch events can be processed by an application (e.g., a browser).

  • Publication number: 20110252306
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a document from a server, where the document includes an embedded script. The method also includes rendering and displaying the document at an electronic device and executing the embedded script. The method furthermore includes establishing a touchevent interface object that includes a plurality of touchlists, and upon detecting one or more touches on the touch-sensitive surface, updating the touchevent interface object with touch data, including values in two or more of the touchlists. The method includes further executing the embedded script in accordance with the values in at least one of the two or more touchlists.
