Element: MSGestureHold event

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The MSGestureHold event is fired when the user contacts the touch surface and remains in the same position for a while.

It is a proprietary event specific to Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer.

Bubbles Unknown
Cancelable Unknown
Interface MSGestureEvent
Event handler property Unknown

The UIEvent.detail property of an MSGestureHold event has 3 possible values:

MSGESTURE_FLAG_BEGIN
This value indicates that the user started contacting the touch surface.
MSGESTURE_FLAG_END
This value indicates that the user has stopped touching the touch surface.
MSGESTURE_FLAG_END & MSGESTURE_FLAG_CANCEL (bitwise AND-ed together)
This value indicates that the user has moved their finger, regardless of whether they also stopped touching the touch surface
