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 swipeMax property is used for setting or getting the maximum swipe distance for the specified jqxTouch widget. After passing the propagation of the touch event will be restored, therefore the scrolling will be available.


  • For setting the swipeMax property:

    $('#jqxTouch').jqxTouch({swipeMax: 300});


  • For getting the swipeMax property:

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