🔨 Usage


This component does not require the container. You can distinguish the gesture with this component in the callback when an event occurs on the target element.


This can be used by creating an instance with the constructor function. To get the constructor function, you should import the module using one of the following ways depending on your environment.

Using namespace in browser environment

var GestureReader = tui.GestureReader;

Using module format in node environment

var GestureReader = require('tui-gesture-reader'); /* CommonJS */
import {GestureReader} from 'tui-gesture-reader'; /* ES6 */

You can create an instance with options and call various APIs after creating an instance.

var instance = new GestureReader({ ... });
instance.isAvailableZone( ... );

For more information about the API, please see here.
