Question - Code Gesture Events (bug?!)

I may be using it wrong but the tap event, in the manual says it has a event_data[? "touch"] variable with which one can detect how many fingers are being used.
I'm trying to detect a 2 fingers' tap (like the right click on a mac).

So the GLOBAL TAP EVENT code is:
Code:
if (event_data[? "touch"] > 0) {
    show_message(...);
}
the message code never gets called... am I doing something wrong?! Or is it a bug?!

What are you testing on???

On Windows Desktop we do not support touch events with more than one finger...

No we only support Touch on

iOS

So if i understand this correctly, there is no current way to test the gesture events that consist of one finger on windows. I would have the use iOS, Android or UWP devices.

dragging is working but tap isnt.

Tap is working here... and dragging and double tap too... the problem is related to multiple touches.. if you use pinch and rotation doesn't work.

@xDGameStudios Do you mean that tap, drag, and double tap are working on your touchscreen Windows 8 or Windows 10 laptop or tablet?

On Windows Desktop then you will only get one single touch (which comes from mouse simulation) we do not support multi touch on Windows Desktop
