    Hi guys,

    I'm currently using your UI for IOS and after many usability tests I am finding that when a user touches a calendar cell (in the iPad theme, month view) it can sometimes be mistaken for a swipe instead of the desired touch. This of course navigates the user to the next or previous month rather than the date they intended to select. I was wondering if your control has the ability to change the month with a swipe gesture of a desired length instead of anything that system seems to think is a swipe gesture. It's strange because I found even the slightest swipe would cause the month to change. Also another feature you should think of adding is if the user swipes to go to another month the system should bounce back to their present month their in unless they have swipe the month out of a specified region. Just a couple of suggestions. But let me know if your calendar control has those capabilities.

    Hello Robert,

    Thank you for these suggestions.

    Currently TKCalendar relies on the default pan gesture recognizer in iOS and there is no way to customize the swipe gesture sensitivity. I added this as a feature request in our feedback portal and we will consider adding this feature in future. Here is the link to track the issue status.  Your Telerik points are updated.

    Please note that TKCalendar will not change the month if you start a pan gesture and then move your finger back with some pixels.
