Disabling one of top/bottom swipe gestures to open AppBar


  • Hi,

    My WinJS application has an AppBar at the top, which currently responds to both the "swipe-from-top" and the "swipe-from-bottom" gestures.

    I'd like to know if it's possible to disable the "swipe-from-bottom" gesture, such that only swiping from the top opens the AppBar?

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Paul,

    There doesn't appear to be any event or command that controls this behavior for the WinJS.UI.AppBar. Either a top or bottom swipe will automatically bring up the app bar.
