  • Can drag be de-sensitized?

    I've been having some problems selecting names from the phonebook on my touchscreen. There is no problem if I use a mouse, but with my finger strange things were happening. I finally figured out that as I touched the screen and then took my finger away, I was actually "rolling" the contact coordinates slightly. If I touched an actual phone entry, the result was that the screen would scroll down or up and I'd have another name displayed. If I touched the up or down arrows in the same un-careful manner, the slight scroll would cause it to go to top/bottom of the list! Is there a way to de-sensitize this so that it would take a DELIBERATE drag to cause the scrolling effect (eg: must move at least 10 pixels to trigger)?

    Look to me like a uncalibrated finger

    I did a lot testing and trying myself on this an I figured, that it doesn't make sense to add any kind of offset to the mouse move because even 40 pixel offset dont do it driving through road holes.

    What I'm actually doing I'm adding a time offset (which is 600 ms). If you hold it longer then this time period, it switches into the index scrolling mode (this btw. works only on the right half of the phonebook).

    So, use the right half of the phonebook for selecting names and the left half for scrolling through the phonebook and everything will work perfect.

      My usual mistake is when I hit the pagedown button and it goes to the end of the list.
