  • Last Updated : 25 Dec, 2020

jQuery Mobile swipeleft event is fired when we swipe left in the element area. We can use this event for different purposes.

Syntax:

jQuery( ".selector" ).on( "swipeleft", function( event ) {  } )

Approach: First, add jQuery mobile scripts needed for your project.

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”http://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css” />
<script src=”http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.1.min.js”></script>
<script src=”http://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js”></script>

Example 1:



HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href=
  
    <script src=
