Description Robert Griebl 2010-05-04 08:16:33 PDT
Touch based platforms like Maemo need a way to disable text selection and image dragging at run time, since it interferes heavily with kinetic scrolling.
(dynamically at run time, since it'd be nice to switch back to text selection mode - see e.g. the Maemo microb browser)

Simon, should this block the 2.1 planned API meta-bug?

I will help Thiago with implementing this feature.
Comment 4 Tor Arne Vestbø 2010-10-19 01:24:43 PDT
Do we need API for this?

Comment 5 Antonio Gomes 2011-01-18 10:17:11 PST
returning FALSE from EditorClientXXX::shouldChangeSelectedRange would prevent mouse based text selection from happening.

WRT bugzilla 7427 is assigned to Jenya
increasing to P1 / Critical as ou1cimx1#726193 is on Top List

after further analysis neither WRT bugzilla 7427 nor ou1cimx1#726193 is dependent on this bug. Returning to pool
