Swipe from edge gesture in fullscreen WPF app RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a fullscreen windows 8 desktop WPF application that at the moment, is a basically a UserControl with a Canvas. If I do a horizontal (left-to-right)swipe (touch-and-drag) originating from the left edge of the screen, I don't get any touch events (no TouchDown, TouchMove or TouchUp). This is an area about 40 pixels wide. The weird thing is, I can do a vertical swipe directly inside this ~40 pixel area without any issues. My current hypothesis, is that windows 8 is stealing my touch events for the app switching gesture.

    I tried turning off the app switching gesture and also turning off flicks but neither has solved my problem.

    Any ideas?  Is there a way to prevent the OS from consuming these gestures?
