Hotspot press and hold on mobile

Postby jtanz » Tue Apr 18, 2017 12:22 am

To make hotspots easier to use in mobile, I want to be able to click and hold on a hotspot instead of accidentally pressing on it while pressing and rotating the viewer on a mobile screen. Is there any easy way to do this, assuming I need to build a fancy plugin? I see hammerjs has a press functionality, would I have to incorporate that into a press and hold event action?

Hi jtanz,

We have to improve the behaviour of hotspots interactions on touch screens, so thank you for your feedback !
I know that at the moment you have to double clck hotspots on mobile. It is a known bug that is in the raycaster module and will be fixed as soon as possible.

Regarding the press and release it should be possible to code this behaviour. Today this is the raycaster that determine the hovered object and then call its click method.

Have a nice day !
