  • Last Updated : 01 Jul, 2021
Geek Week

ReactJS Onsen-UI is a popular front-end library with a set of React components that are designed to developing HTML5 hybrid and mobile web apps in a beautiful and efficient way. GestureDetector Component allows the user to detect finger gestures within a wrapped element. We can use the following approach in ReactJS to use the Onsen-UI GestureDetector Component.

GestureDetector Props:

  • onDrag: It is a callback function that is called when the user drags in any direction.  
  • onDragLeft: It is a callback function that is called when the user drags left.  
  • onDragRight: It is a callback function that is called when the user drags right.  
  • onDragUp: It is a callback function that is called when the user drags up.  
  • onDragDown: It is a callback function that is called when the user drags down.  
  • onHold: It is a callback function that is called when the user holds.  
  • onRelease: It is a callback function that is called when the user releases.  
  • onSwipe: It is a callback function that is called when the user swipes in any direction.  
  • onSwipeLeft: It is a callback function that is called when the user swipes left.  
  • onSwipeRight: It is a callback function that is called when the user swipes right.  
  • onSwipeUp: It is a callback function that is called when the user swipes up.  
  • onSwipeDown: It is a callback function that is called when the user swipes down.  
  • onTap: It is a callback function that is called when the user taps.  
  • onDoubleTap: It is a callback function that is called when the user double taps.  
  • onPinch: It is a callback function that is called when the user pinches in or out.  
  • onPinchIn: It is a callback function that is called when the user pinches in.  
  • onPinchOut: It is a callback function that is called when the user pinches out.  
  • onTouch: It is a callback function that is called when the user touches it.  
  • onTransform: It is a callback function that is called when the user transforms.  
  • onRotate: It is a callback function that is called when the user rotates. 

Creating React Application And Installing Module:

  • Step 1: Create a React application using the following command:

    npx create-react-app foldername

     



  • Step 2: After creating your project folder i.e. foldername, move to it using the following command:

    cd foldername
  • Step 3: After creating the ReactJS application, Install the required module using the following command:

    npm install onsenui react-onsenui 

Project Structure: It will look like the following.

Project Structure

Example: Now write down the following code in the App.js file. Here, App is our default component where we have written our code.

App.js




import React from 'react';
import 'onsenui/css/onsen-css-components.css';
import { GestureDetector } from 'react-onsenui';
  
export default function App() {
  
    return (
        <div style={{
            display: 'block', width: 500, paddingLeft: 30
        }}>
            <h6>ReactJS Onsen-UI GestureDetector Component</h6>
            <GestureDetector
                onTap={() => console.log('You just tapped!!')}
                onDragRight={() => console.log('You just dragged Right!!')}
            >
                <div style={{ backgroundColor: 'green'
                width: '500px', height: '300px' }}>
                    Make your Gesture here!
                </div>
            </GestureDetector>
        </div>
    );
}

Step to Run Application: Run the application using the following command from the root directory of the project:

npm start

Output: Now open your browser and go to http://localhost:3000/, you will see the following output:
