Description Rick Byers 2012-09-10 11:19:36 PDT
W3C TouchEvents spec says that TouchList should have an identifiedTouch method that returns an entry given the ID:  http://www.w3.org/TR/touch-events/#widl-TouchList-identifiedTouch-Touch-long-identifier

We don't have this in WebKit, we should implement it.

Rick, any plans to continue work on this one? Thanks.
Comment 2 Rick Byers 2013-02-08 04:52:31 PST
Thanks for the ping.  We've been debating what to do about this method.  Recently it was decide that it should be removed from the TouchEvents v1 spec: http://www.w3.org/2010/webevents/track/issues/28.  It will still be in TEv2, but there are no plans to turn that into an official W3C spec any more (with the focus in w3c shifting to pointer events).

I can still see value in WebKit having this, but I don't personally plan to work on it now.  It should be trivial though if someone else wants to pick it up.

Thanks for the clarification, good to know.

There's no longer a TEv2, so this is obsolete.
