Event for swiping to change slide (only)

nkc's Avatar

I have a client that wants to track how the user changes a slide in three separate ways.
1. Clicking the rsBullet dots
2. Clicking the arrows
3. Swiping

I can add jquery events to listen to clicks of the bullets and arrows, but can't figure out what to do for the swipes. The problem is that rsDragRelease fires even when you just click on a slide. And I cant use rsAfterSlideChange because that will also capture clicks of the arrows and bullets. Any advice for me?

    Check - https://gist.github.com/dimsemenov/56a789ae06bbae049acb Haven't tested, but theoretically should work, you might need to add some timeout to rsAfterSlideChange because of click delay on touchdevices.

    Ok, I'll go that direction. Thanks.

    How can I be sure that the rsAfterSlideChange event was not triggered via autoplay in your example?

    @Hannes, you may disable default autoPlay functionality (or exclude module itself) and write your own.

    There is also a flag in rsBeforeMove event that determines whether an action was performed by a user or by a script.

    slider.ev.on('rsBeforeMove', function(event, type, userAction ) {
        // before any slide transition starts (including after drag release)
        // "type" - can be "next", "prev", or ID of a slide
        // userAction (Boolean) - defines if action is triggered by user (e.g. will be false if movement is triggered by autoPlay)

    hi, i have another issue with "rsAfterSlideChange" event - it's triggered even when there was no change and the same slide is active.
