Is rotate trackpad gesture not supported on Windows?



  • Our dev team has been debating this - I've seen that rotate is only mentioned as a native gesture event type, while pinch is implemented both as a regular gesture AND native gesture.
    Google has found pages talking about rotate on Windows but not authoritative ones, and there is confusion between trackpad and touchscreen.

    So I don't know if Windows API supports this gesture even, let alone whether Qt does. Our client is strongly requesting we implement pinch/rotate gestures on Mac and Windows and I can't find anything definitive to tell them what is available out of the box, and what would require bespoke coding.

    One thing we've seen is "Windows Touch": https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd940543(v=vs.85).aspx - but I am unclear if this is a trackpad technology or touch-screen-only.

    Thankyou for any assistance.
