Hi people,

Does anyone know how to replicate the hover function on touch devices?

I am able to open a dropdown menu with touch but I can seem to get it to close when touched!

<script>
<-- Below opens the dropdown -->
jQuery('.dropdown-toggle').on('touchstart', function(e) {		 
	e.stopPropagation();
   var dropdown = jQuery(this).open(".dropdown-menu");

<-- Now I am trying to close on touch --> 
   jQuery('.dropdown-toggle').on('touchstart', function(e) {		 
	e.stopPropagation();
   var dropdown = jQuery(this).removeclass(".open");
   });
});
</script>

Open in new window


Any able to point me in the right direction will be much appreciated...

I don't work with mobile, but I have seen things like this:

$("a").live("touchstart", function(e) {
  $(this).trigger("hover");
});

In order to make the on function work put an additional dom element in it like in the code block. In order to know that your touchstart is triggered insert some console.log()
 statements, so you definitely know it is triggered at all.

Yet another thing, in the jquery mobile docs I couldn't find such method as open(), what I found was popup( open ) or dialog( open ). You consider using toggleSlide() instead of open.
<script>
<-- Below opens the dropdown -->
jQuery('.dropdown-toggle').on('touchstart', 'li', function(e) {            
      e.stopPropagation();
   var dropdown = jQuery(this).toggleSlide(".dropdown-menu", 400);

<-- Now I am trying to close on touch -->
   jQuery('.dropdown-toggle').on('touchstart', 'li', function(e) {            
        console.log('submenu hiding triggered');
      e.stopPropagation();
        var dropdown = jQuery(this).toggleSlide(".dropdown-menu", 400);
   });
});
</script>

Then maybe you should post a link instead of expecting a solution when all you have given us is a fragment of code with no context.

Link is:

http://jquerymobile.com/

If you have it loaded too, in this case it is really needed to see the link, as there could be a lot of things that may break functions working correctly.
