Touch support

Since version 7.0 and upper, the dhtmlxSuite library provides the built-in Touch support that should work out of the box. As a result, the interaction with the DHTMLX-based apps on touch devices becomes more comfy and predictable.


Check the example in our Snippet Tool to try out the functionality on your touch devices.

While interacting with applications by touching the screen, a tap becomes the same thing as a mouse click. Thus, the click events (fire on clicking, double clicking an item) will continue working on touch-screen devices. But note, that the mouseover events will not trigger.

Touch support works for all DHTMLX widgets and enables recognition for the following touch gestures:

  • Double Tap - to edit items
  • Press and Hold - to call the context menu
  • Drag - to resize and reorder items, to change the value in Slider, ColorPicker, or TimePicker
