ListViewBase.IsSwipeEnabled property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the view supports discrete input processing for a swipe interaction.


public bool IsSwipeEnabled { get; set; }

<listViewBase IsSwipeEnabled="bool" .../>

Property value

Type: System.Boolean [.NET] | Platform::Boolean [C++]

true if discrete input processing for swipe interactions is enabled; otherwise, false. The default is true.


Setting IsSwipeEnabled to false disables some default touch interactions, so it should be set to true when these interactions are needed. For example:

  • If item selection is enabled and you set IsSwipeEnabled to false, a user can deselect items by right-clicking with the mouse, but can't deselect an item with touch by using a swipe gesture.
  • If you set CanDragItems to true and IsSwipeEnabled to false, a user can drag items with the mouse, but not with touch.
  • If you set CanReorderItems to true and IsSwipeEnabled to false, a user can reorder items with the mouse, but not with touch.

You typically set IsSwipeEnabled to false to disable swipe animations when items in the view don't support interactions that use the swipe gesture, like deselecting, dragging, and reordering. Disabling the animation when it's not needed can improve the performance of your app.
