jQuery Mobile tap Event
  • Last Updated : 28 Dec, 2020

jQuery Mobile is a web-based technology used to make responsive content that can be accessed on all smartphones, tablets, and desktops. The tap event in jQuery Mobile is fired when an element area receives a quick and full touch event. We can use this event for different purposes.

Syntax:

jQuery(".selector").on("tap", 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=
    </script>
  
    <script src=
    </script>
  
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).on('tap', 'a',
            function(event) {
                console.log(event)
            })
    </script>
</head>
  
<body>
    <center>
        <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
        <h4>tap Event using jQuery Mobile</h4>
    </center>
    <a data-role="button" id="gfg">click</a>
