The swipe gesture doesnt't work if the window contains a ScrollView, actually it works but only on the label inside the ScrollView Code to reproduce var win = Ti.UI.createWindow({ backgroundColor : 'white' }); var scrollView = Ti.UI.createScrollView({ layout : 'vertical', contentHeight : 'auto', top : 0, bottom : 0 }); var label = Ti.UI.createLabel({ text : 'Swipe only works on this label', font : { fontSize : 48 }, top : 0 }); scrollView.add(label); win.add(scrollView); win.addEventListener('swipe', function(e) { alert('swipe'); }); win.open();

    HiDavid Benko, I have checked this code SDK/Studio 3.1.2 and real android device it works please again check it. Thanks

    @Motiur, I tested on the following devices and it doesnt work: Samsung Galaxy S2 Android 4.1.2, Galaxy S4 4.2.2, Nexus 4 Android 4.2.2 But strangely I have tested on a Galaxy Note 10.1 Android 4.1.2 and the gesture worked without being on the label Maybe you should try to reproduce on one of the devices I mentioned

    Reopening this ticket as I can reproduce it on Samsung Galaxy Nexus device with 4.2.2. However, this appears to be a duplicate of TIMOB-13698 that has been resolved as "Won't Fix". Please try the work around suggested in that ticket and let us know if it resolves the problem.

    Resolving this ticket as a duplicate of TIMOB-13698.

    Though this may be related to TIMOB-13698, it's a very different request. Gesture events should still work on the ScrollView, but not even a pinch event gets fired. This severely limits the ability to create applications that are heavily based on gestures for navigation (like Facebook's Pages app).

    Hello, Swipe (horizontal) is working well on a ScrollView. But pinch event is not getting fired. I tested this issue in two Non brand Android Device with 4.0.4 ,4.2.2 SDK and SDK 3.2.1 GA, Titanium Studio, build: Thanks

    Pinch event is marked as iOS only so it is expected not to fire on Android platform. http://docs.appcelerator.com/titanium/latest/#!/api/Titanium.UI.ScrollView-event-pinch [~matthewcongrove] This may be a valid feature request for Android platform so you may want to file such request directly in TIMOB project.
