jQWidgets jqxTouch tapHoldDelay Property

  • Last Updated : 14 Nov, 2021

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 tapHoldDelay property is used for setting or getting the taphold delay for the specified jqxTouch widget. The taphold event will be fired when this delay is passed. 


  • For setting the tapHoldDelay property:

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


  • For getting the tapHoldDelay property:

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