    This patch is deprecated, please see the new version here:
    http://forums.precentral.net/webos-p...-touchpad.html


    Here is Garrett92C's official thread:
    (Touchpad) Simple Browser Gestures | webOSroundup


    This version is inverted from Garrett's version. The left side of the screen is back, the right side is forward.

    If you want the version where you swipe from the right side to go back and the left side to go forward, it's titled "Simple Browser Gestures" in preware.

    This patch conflicts with "Add ThumbNav Controls" and possibly powerswipe.

    This is Touchpad webOS 3.0.2 ONLY!

    Did you fix the issue of back not working for the first few pages?

    It's impossible for that issue to exist with this version. I believe the code handling the graphic display of the button was causing that. This version does not have any graphical elements and is simply looking for the edges of the screen to be touched.

    I think this patch is a great idea. Except that I would prefer that a swipe 'out to the left', should be 'back' and a swipe 'out to the right', should be forward. If 'swiping out' is not technically possible, then alternately, swipe 'in from the right' should be back and 'swipe in from the left' should be forward. Thanks.

    I can make and inverted version of this patch for you.. but "swiping out" is definitely not possible as we have no true "gesture area" like we do on the phones with webOS.

    Edit: Sanjay, I've added an inverted version of the patch for you.

    I've re-added the download links back, you can use my version or download "Simple Browser Gestures" directly from Preware.

    I absolutely lovethis. Now if the browser would actually load pages from the cache quickly, it'd be freaking amazing.

    Thanks a lot. Your effort is much appreciated.

    PS: Just for my understanding, why would a 'swipe out' not be possible? After all the same logic that works for a 'swipe in' should apply to the 'swipe out' too, right?

    This patch simply looks at the first 7 pixels on the edge of screen. If any of those pixels are touched it fires off the back or forward command. With only 7 pixels to work with, it's not possible to track any movement, capacitive touch screens just aren't accurate enough. We would have to increase the used pixels to probably at least 50 pixels before we could accurately track swipe movement and at that point we're using too much screen space and greatly complicating this patch. Anything under an enlarged overlay would also no longer be clickable.

    It's too bad HP didn't make the entire bezel touch sensitive like the palm phones.

    How about a slightly modified version of the swipe up the touchpad uses? The same logic of detecting an upward gesture (sideways in this case) but monitoring distance and triggering the back/forward system event when the touch point has traveled x amount of pixels.

    I'm almost certain the upswipe code is a pre-compiled low level function of webOS. Which means, there is no editing it, or creating an improved variation. We only have enyo and css to work with here and there are some limitations.

    I'll take some time to absorb the browser source code a bit more. I do have some of my own ideas, nothing concrete though. In the meantime, if I'm mistaken about the upswipe code, someone please point me to the relevant files.

    I installed it through PreWare but it seems to be the inverted version (when I swipe on the right side it goes back, left side forward). Is that correct? So which version do I have to install? The normal or the inverted to have back on the left and forward on the right side of the screen?

    Could you make a version for Advanced Browser too?

    EDIT: Oh... hehe... It seems I did install the patch from the other guy
    But nonetheless I prefer the opposite direction.. thanks to both of you

    zenkinz,
    This patch will fail on install if you have other browser modification patches installed. Possible conflicting patches include but not limited to:
    Powerswipe
    Simple Browser Gestures
    Add ThumbNav Controls
  16.    #16  
    I've submitted an inverted version to Garrett92C's "Simple Browser Gestures" patch to Preware. It should be titled "Simple Browser Gestures Inverted" and hopefully will show up in the feeds soon. This version will go back when you swipe from the left edge of the screen and go forward when you swipe from the right edge.

    After further consideration, I've decided I probably shouldn't release a patch for the 3rd party browser "Advanced Browser". You're probably better off requesting this particular feature directly from the developer. You might find he's receptive ?
