Touch

ag-Grid is designed to work on touch devices. By default, browsers convert tap events to mouse click events. This means, for example, if you tap on a cell in ag-Grid, the cell will get selected just like you clicked on the cell with a mouse. The remainder of this page explains touch gestured understood by the grid which are NOT simply the grid reacting to taps as mouse clicks. They are touch gestures coded into the grid.

Enabling Double Clicking on Mobile Devices

The default behaviour on many mobile devices when a page is double clicked on it to zoom in. To prevent this behaviour so that a double click would, for example, edit a cell you need to disable viewport zooming.

You can disable viewport zooming by setting the following tag at the top level page:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />
