WM6 : Disable finger scroll in Internet Explorer

  • Hello everybody

    I'm testing actually manual signature capture on Neo (CE5.NET) and on a Ikon (WM6) in a web application running with Internet explorer.

    On the Neo the signature capture works perfectly.
    On the Ikon its doesn't works because of the automatic finger scrolling

    Before aswwer, please know that this solution doesn't works :
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
    Viewport Height -> Set to zero
    Viewport Width -> Set to zero

    Note also that this other solution doesn't works :
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
    SBSizeH => Set To 0
    SBSizeV => Set To 0

    Is somebody have A TESTED AND APPROVED solution to disable finger scrolling ?

    Thank you.

  • If you wish to disable the Touch Screen Pan Gesture, feel free to give the below CAB file a try.

    PTX AHD - Disable Touch Screen Pan Gesture.cab
    0574.PTX AHD - Disable Touch Screen Pan Gesture.zip

    Upon installation, this CAB file will add the below key to your Windows Mobile 6.x device

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Gestures\Touch]
    disabled REG_DWORD 0x00000001

    If you now warm-reset your Windows Mobile 6.x device, for the new settings to take effect, you will notice that pressing and holding on the screen and then dragging the finger in the up or down direction, no longer makes the screen move.

    E.g.
    If you open up Explorer then drag your finger or the stylus across several files, the screen will no longer scroll vertically.  The files will - as depicted below - become selected:

  • Hi Jacques

    Thank you for your solution but it's doesn't works.

    The finger scrolling is still active on Internet Explorer.

    And I have effectively  :

    disabled REG_DWORD 0x00000001 in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Gestures\Touch]

    And I have made a warm reset

    Bests regards.
