Exclusively own touch event like ScrollViewer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I observed that system shows touch point trace (see attached picture below) on most UI elements. However, ScrollViewer eats touch event and no touch trace will show on the screen. I want an UI element can eats touch and not display touch trace like ScrollViewer. I tried to handle pointer events and set handled flag to true, but didn't work. Is there any way to do that?

    I want to do this because ScrollViewer has a very good response time. Use touch to scroll items inside ScrollViewer, you can see them follow the finger very closely. However, when I tried to move a rectangle horizontally by handling PointerMove event, the rectangle is a little bit far away from my finger. So I want to do a little test to figure if disabling touch event delivery can get better performance.


    This is touch point trace on most UI elements.

  • Thanks for your reply Jesse. I know ScrollViewer eats all touch event and may block it child to get touch event. What I want to know is how to do the same thing for my control, to eat all touch and block touch trace displace on the screen?
