EasyTouch and Unity 5 UI
« on: June 03, 2015, 08:18:46 AM »
    I'm having trouble getting EasyTouch to work with the (new) Unity GUI.
    Do I have to switch 'Enable Unity UI detection' on or off?
    Do I have to switch 'Enable 2D collider' on or off?

    • I created a test project with a UI canvas and one Panel.

    • I added EasyTouch

  • I added a simple script to the panel
  • I added an Easy Touch Trigger with an On_Swipe event

When I run the project nothing happens if I click the panel. Even the print statement doesn't run.

What am I doing wrong ?
(Can I send the testproject somewhere ? (I don't want to 'give away' EasyTouch ;-)

Hi Wilbert,

If you want to detect gestures on the GUI Elements you must:
* Enable Unity UI detection
* Disable Unity UI compatibility (when enable, EasyTouch doesn’t raise gesture message when your touch is over UI Element)
EasyTouch trigger doesn’t work with Unity UI (I prepared a specific trigger to work with the GUI element), you have to create your own script like that :
void OnEnable(){
    EasyTouch.On_DragEnd += HandleOn_DragEnd;
void HandleOn_DragEnd (Gesture gesture)
    if (gesture.pickedUIElement != null){
