Class: MSPointer

Phaser. MSPointer

new MSPointer(game)

The MSPointer class handles pointer interactions with the game via the Pointer Events API. (It's named after the nonstandard MSPointerEvent, ancestor of the current API.)

It's currently supported in IE 10+, Edge, Chrome (including Android), and Opera.

You should not normally access this class directly, but instead use a Phaser.Pointer object which normalises all game input for you including accurate button handling.

Phaser does not yet support chorded button interactions.

You can disable Phaser's use of Pointer Events by any of three ways:

new Phaser.Game({ mspointer: false });
// **Before** `new Phaser.Game(…)`:
Phaser.Device.onInitialized.add(function () {
    this.mspointer = false;
});
// Once, in the earliest State `init` or `create` callback (e.g., Boot):
this.input.mspointer.stop();
Parameters:
Name Type Description
game Phaser.Game

A reference to the currently running game.

Members

<readonly> active : boolean

Whether the input handler is active.

Type:
  • boolean
Source:
src/input/MSPointer.js line 103

callbackContext : object

The context under which callbacks are called (defaults to game).

Type:
  • object
Source:
src/input/MSPointer.js line 56

capture : boolean

If true the PointerEvent will call preventDefault(), canceling the corresponding MouseEvent or TouchEvent.

If the Mouse handler is active as well, you should set this to true to avoid duplicate events.

"Mouse events can only be prevented when the pointer is down. Hovering pointers (e.g. a mouse with no buttons pressed) cannot have their mouse events prevented. And, the mouseover and mouseout events are never prevented (even if the pointer is down)."

  • boolean
