Topic: Touch - how to get position of long press?

meesha81 priority asked 1 year ago

Expected behavior

"press" event should provide coordinates of touch/array of touches if multiple touches are considered

Actual behavior

There is propably no possibility to get coordinates of long press event. Sometimes you need pageX/pageY coordinates like standard click event (e.pageX/e.pageY).

Use case: To be able display eg. contextmenu standard displayed by mouse rightclick on PC via tablet (touch device only). To display dropdown via 'press' event you need the place position of dropdown to be displayed so the most easiest way is have pageX/pageY of touch in the event.

Okey, is any plan for new update with some bugfix or important improvements? I am reporting a lot of them which are IMHO conceptual and follow real needs. Touch event without position is little bit useless. I hope this type of improvement will not be so complicated. There is no issue solved since my first reports (about 5 months). It would be nice if you could process reported issues little bit faster...
