Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-7958) touchend event not firing when released outside webview
Date Wed, 14 Oct 2015 07:56:05 GMT


Knut Eirik Leira Hjelle commented on CB-7958:

Figured that it was a UIWebView error, but hoped it could be fixed by Cordova somehow as it
will be a problem for a while (it is still present in iOS 9).

If the native touchend event is called, wouldn't it be possible to prevent the original javascript
touchend to fire in the first place, avoiding the duplicate touchend?
Haven't looked at the UIWebView component yet, so I do not know if that would work.

> When starting a touch event inside of webview, it is possible to slowly slide the finger
to (and off) the edge of the screen and never get the touchend event. Making the webview fullscreen
seems to remove the issue.
> The only information I have found about this issue is a stack overflow post (,
which is why I tried to replicate the problem with a fullscreen webview.
> I have not been able to reproduce this problem on any devices except the iPhone6 on iOS
> Created a small cordova project which makes the bug reproducible.
