jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxTouch is used for identifying and triggering touch events such as ‘swipe’, ‘swipe left’, ‘swipe right’, ‘tap’, and ‘orientationchange’ on touch-enabled devices.

The swipeDelay property is used for setting or getting the swipe delay for the specified jqxTouch widget. The swipe event won’t be fired when it passed the value of swipeDelay property.


  • For setting the swipeDelay property:

    $('#jqxTouch').jqxTouch({swipeDelay: 999});


  • For getting the swipeDelay property:

    var swipeMin = $('#jqxTouch').jqxTouch('swipeDelay');
