Topic: mdb-carousel does not allow swipe up/down in mobile browser

Saurabh Srivastava free asked 4 years ago

Expected behavior When swiping the web page while touching on top of the mdb-carousel component, the page should scroll. The page scrolls fine when swiping up/down on the mdb-carousel component on the demo site.

Actual behavior When swiping up/down on the mdb-carousel component on a mobile browser ( android ) , the web page does not scroll. The touch swipe event is probably hijacked by the mdb-carousel component, while the page does not scroll. On swiping up/down anywhere outside the mdb-carousel componet, the page scrolls fine.

Dear @Saurabh Srivastava

Your problem was answered a few times on this support forum.

You have to configure the HammerJS in your project, and there won't be such a problem.

Please take a look at this: Mobile Documentation.
