Prior to version 5, Ext JS was designed exclusively for use on desktop devices with traditional mouse input. With the release of Ext JS 5 beta, we’ve added support for touch input as well, which allows Ext JS to be used on a larger selection of devices, primarily tablets, but also laptops with touch-screens. In this article, you’ll learn how the framework handles touch events and event normalization between devices. Download the Ext JS 5 beta and check it out.
Sencha Ext JS 5 beta is available for public access and evaluation. This release includes touch support, two-way data binding, grid gadgets, touch-optimized charts, routing and more. For all the Ext JS developers out there, this a great opportunity to help make this the best Ext JS release ever. We invite you to download the beta and share your feedback in the forum.
