Native gesture support in Xojo?

    I have been perusing the old forum posts and it seems that there are only work arounds to getting gestures to work. I am not seeing anything in the official documentation.

    It seems so 1984 that my app only responds to scrollbars via dragging a mouse instead of feeling more modern by being able to use gestures.

    Isn't Xojo made in Xojo? And it has gestures.

    @Greg OLone We haven’t done anything special in the IDE. Everything you see is due to system behavior.

    So when I am using two-finger gestures to pan around working on a window in the IDE, that is system, behavior? Sure, I see it working automatically in a long listbox, but Christian pointed out his new way to pan around a canvas. How would this be done without plugins?

    There is no built in gesture support for Xojo.

    But you check your recently added CanvasGesturesMBS class for Mac.

    For Windows, check WinPointerEventsMBS , WinGestureConfigMBS and WinGestureInfoMBS classes.

    These look interesting. How easy are these to implement?

    Download plugin, try examples, see if it works for you...

    Yes. It's responding to scroll wheel events.

    What about Linux?
