    We have a problem about the ‘RadRepeatButton’ on the touchscreen computer. We have tried the ‘repeat button application’ under the ‘buttons’ tab in the ‘Demo Applicaion – RadControls for WinForms Q3 2013’ on Windows 8 but the button works only when we double tap. When we tried the same application on Windows 7 the button works properly as soon as we tap on it. Does the ‘Rad RepeatButton’ not work on Windows 8? Or does this button works when you double tap on it. We think it should operate when you touch it.

    The problem we experience occurs only when we tap on the  touchscreen. Other than that, when we use the mouse, it operates properly on both operating systems.

    What can we do in order to make the rad repeat button operate when we tap and hold on it (not double tap) on Windows 8?

    Hello Sevket,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I have tested this behavior on a Windows 8 touch device and it was working properly. You need to press the button once, release it and press and hold it to trigger the repeat button. You should do it this way since as this page states the first tap on an item activates it and holding after this tap simulates a Right-Click behavior. 

    If you are not happy with this behavior of windows you can manually perform clicks on the RadRepeatButton using a timer which will be started on the TouchDown event and stopped on the TouchUp event. The information about these events is taken from http://touchswipe-dev.googlecode.com/svn-history/r34/trunk/FennecUI/WMTouchForm.cs. You can also refer to the attached below sample project where this solution is implemented.

    Let me know if you have further questions.
