touch-action zoom state shouldn't reset at scrollers

Project Member Reported by, Sep 8 2015 Back to list

Issue description

Test page:

On Edge / IE: double-tapping on the scroller does not zoom, and taps are registered immediately.
In Chrome, double-tapping the scroller does zoom.

This means the simple guidance "use 'touch-action: manipulation' to disable the click delay" isn't actually sufficient.

I believe blink matches the spec, but we should change the spec and blink to match the Edge behavior (will start a thread on public-pointer-events).

In particular, we probably want to keep walking up the tree beyond scrollers to consider just the zoom-related parts of touch-action.  Let's wait to see what exact wording the PEWG agrees on for the spec though.

pointer events spec issue:

Note that I marked this pri-1 as I believe this property is important for good click-delay avoidance (which is a major problem on the web).

I can take this.

The following revision refers to this bug:

Don't reset touch-action zoom state at scrollers

This ensures that when a page disables double-tap zoom (eg. via
touch-action: manipulation) and hence the click delay, it stays
disabled even when tapping inside a scroller or iframe.

See for details.

Also removes 'toCoreFrame' declaration which has no implementation
anywhere.  I needed this from my test but discovered the common
pattern was to just invoke the toImplBase method directly.
