Quick & dirty javascript hack to enable your users to see where you are touching on your tablet app.

How to use it
  • Publish the eSpace in your environment
  • Reference the ShowTouch weblock
  • Add the webblock to the pages layout or to the specific page where you want to see the touches
  • Do your demo and Enjoy!
(if you want to enable or disable the "visible touch" there's a site property in the ShowTouch eSpace to turn it on or off)

  • Only shows the first finger touching the screen (go ahead and extend it for multitouch!)
  • Tested in iOS 7.1 and Android 4.4 (go ahead and test it in other versions!)
What’s new (0.3.0)
No longer attaches to touchstart event and that was causing conflicts with other javascript being used in some OutSystems labs apps.
