Support Request: Swipe Gestures


So I would like to "Enable" swipe gestures, is there any way I can do that?
Can't find any information regarding it, nor can I find any "Checkbox" in the configuration menu.

Found an old post from 2016 stating that it was not available for Chromium, does that mean it is enabled for IE Metro?

Our webpage works best with Chrome so that's why we're using CEF.
Is this a feature that'll come later or can I manually do anything to Enable it?

In regards to your description I assume that you mean the zoom gesture.
With the Chrome Browser skin the zoom gesture can be enabled at “-->Start Page & Browser-->Customize-->Settings” (Allow zoom gesture).

Hi, no I'm not referring to the zoom gesture.
I'm referring to swipe gestures, for example, swipe with 3 fingers from left to right to go back 1 page, swipe 3 fingers from right to left to go front.

These gestures are supported in the Chrome Browser from Google but not in the browser engines that SiteKiosk does use and therefore also not in SiteKiosk.
The Chrome Browser Skin uses a Chromium CEF engine installed with SiteKiosk (open source and also source for Google Chrome).
More information here:
The IE based skins are using the IE Webbrowser Control of the installed Internet Explorer.

General note:
To compare the usage with SiteKiosk you need to check in Internet Explorer (or IE Webbrowser Control) on that system or even with the corresponding Chromium CEF Test application.

SiteKiosk 9.7 uses Chromium 73.0.3683.75 Windows 32 Bit. Here you can find the corresponding Chromium test application for download (unzip 2x and run the cefclient.exe in the "Release" folder) which is currently used in SiteKiosk 9.7.5026 (Chromium 73.0.3683.75 Windows 32 Bit):

For testing it in the Internet Explorer Webbrowser Control (outside / without SiteKiosk) you can download a ZIP from our web page and then execute the exe after extracting the files (you do not need to install anything):
Here a PDF with further descriptions and a link to a Webbrowser Control test application:

So just to clarify, as of today these gestures are not supported in SiteKiosk?
