Click test distance

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to change the click test from 3px to something greater? I'm finding in Android browsers that a Draggable object is hard to click because it has a tendency to move a very short distance when I tap the field. On most mobile browsers, 3px is extemely tiny because of retina displays, thus a larger pixel range would be beneficial.

There isn't currently such an option, but it's not difficult to add. I've attached a preview of the next Draggable that recognizes a "minimumMovement" parameter. You can set that higher if you want. Let me know if it works well for you please.

That is SUPER useful. When is this expected to be released?

Is there away to lock it on the x or y axis? Here is what I currently have, and works perfectly when I drag left and right. But the state change also happens when I swipe up and down.

Draggable.create( $this, {
    type            : 'x',
    edgeResistance  : 0.2,
    throwProps      : true,
    minimumMovement : 100,
    lockAxis        : true,
    maxDuration     : 0.5,
    bounds          : { minX : -gridWidth, maxX : gridWidth },
    onDragEnd : function ( e ) {
        target = e.target;
        current = ( current < childLength - 1 ) ? ++current : 0;
        updateHero( target );
        updateHeroText( target, current );
    onThrowComplete : function () {
        TweenLite.set( $this, { clearProps : "transform, z-index" } );
        resetText( target );

Hi jermbo  :)


that's already included , pls download the last version of GSAP (1.15.1 )


minimumMovement special property to Draggable (set in the config object) that defines the minimum distance that the mouse/touch must move before being interpreted as a drag. Default is 2.
for now you can use something like this :
var elX;
minimumMovement :50 , 
onPress:function(){ elX=this.x },
if( this.x>elX || this.x<elX ){
  // your function.....
pls check this out :

Thank you all. I apologize about disappearing as I thought no one responded since I didn't get any notification of a response. I downloaded 1.15/0.11. This will make a huge difference for mobile devices which seem to be more sensitive than desktop ones.

Yes indeed. Thanks for the reminder. Done.

Hi jermbo  :)


Now , with new version ( 1.16.0 ) , you can easily find the lockedAxis :


Draggable exposes the lockedAxis property so that you can find out whether it's "x" or "y".
