React-Tappable

Tappable component for React. Abstracts touch events to implement onTap, onPress, and pinch events.

The events mimic their native equivalents as closely as possible:

  • the baseClass (default: Tappable) has -active or -inactive added to it to enable pressed-state styling
  • the pressed state is visually cancelled if the touch moves too far away from the element, but resumes if the touch comes back again
  • when you start scrolling a parent element, the touch event is cancelled
  • if the onPress property is set, it will cancel the touch event after the press happens

When touch events are not supported, it will fall back to mouse events.

Demo & Examples

Live demo: jedwatson.github.io/react-tappable

To build the examples locally, run:

npm install
gulp dev

Then open localhost:8000 in a browser.

Installation

The easiest way to use React-tappable is to install it from NPM and include it in your own React build process (using Browserify, etc).

You can also use the standalone build by including dist/react-tappable.js in your page. If you use this, make sure you have already included React, and it is available as a global variable.

npm install react-tappable --save

Usage

React-tappable generates a React component (defaults to <span>) and binds touch events to it.

To disable default event handling (e.g. scrolling) set the preventDefault prop.

var Tappable = require('react-tappable');

<Tappable onTap={this.handleTapEvent}>Tap me</Tappable>

Properties

  • activeDelay ms delay before the -hilight class is added, defaults to 0
  • component component to render, defaults to 'span'
  • className optional class name for the component
  • classBase base to use for the active/inactive classes
  • moveThreshold px to allow movement before cancelling a tap; defaults to 100
  • pressDelay ms delay before a press event is detected, defaults to 1000
  • pressMoveThreshold px to allow movement before ignoring long presses; defaults to 5
  • preventDefault (boolean) automatically call preventDefault on all events
  • stopPropagation (boolean) automatically call stopPropagation on all events
  • style (object) styles to apply to the component

Special Events

These are the special events implemented by Tappable.

  • onTap fired when touchStart or mouseDown is followed by touchEnd or mouseUp within the moveThreshold
  • onPress fired when a touch is held for the specified ms
  • onPinchStart fired when two fingers land on the screen
  • onPinchMove fired on any movement while two fingers are on screen
  • onPinchEnd fired when less than two fingers are left on the screen, onTouchStart is triggerred, if one touch remains

Pinch Events

Pinch events come with a special object with additional data to actually be more useful than the native events:

  • touches: Array of Objects - {identifier, pageX, pageY} - raw data from the event
  • center: Object - {x, y} - Calculated center between the two touch points
  • angle: Degrees - angle of the line connecting the two touch points to the X-axis
  • distance: Number of pixels - beween the two touch points
  • displacement: Object {x, y} - offset of the center since the pinch began
  • displacementVelocity: Object {x, y} : Pixels/ms - Immediate velocity of the displacement
  • rotation: degrees - delta rotation since the beginning of the gesture
  • rotationVelocity: degrees/millisecond - immediate rotational velocity
  • zoom: Number - Zoom factor - ratio between distance between the two touch points now over initial
  • zoomVelocity: zoomFactor/millisecond - immediate velocity of zooming
  • time: milliseconds since epoch - Timestamp

Known Issues

  • The pinch implementation has not been thoroughly tested
  • Any touch event with 3 three or more touches is completely ignored.

Native Events

The following native event handlers can also be specified.

  • onTouchStart
  • onTouchMove
  • onTouchEnd
  • onMouseDown
  • onMouseUp
  • onMouseMove
  • onMouseOut

Returning false from onTouchStart or onMouseDown handlers will prevent Tappable from handling the event.
