Translating touch events from Javascript to jQuery

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I am using

window.addEventListener("touchstart", function(ev){
    console.log(ev.touches); // good
});

How can I translate this to jQuery? I’ve tried:

$(window).bind("touchstart",function(ev){
    console.log(ev.touches); // says ev.touches is undefined
}

Any ideas?

How to&Answers:

jQuery ‘fixes up’ events to account for browser differences. When it does so, you can always access the ‘native’ event with event.originalEvent (see the Special Properties subheading on this page).

Answer:

$(window).on("touchstart", function(ev) {
    var e = ev.originalEvent;
    console.log(e.touches);
});

I know it been asked a long time ago, but I thought a concrete example might help.
