Handling touch gestures and using UI effects

In this recipe we are going to look at handling touch gestures such as double tapping and swiping. Additionally, in response to certain gestures, we are going to apply a couple of the built-in UI special effects.

Getting ready

Load up PlayStation Mobile Studio and create a new project. Add a reference to Sce.PlayStation.HighLevel.UI. We are going to be re-using our FA-18h.png image, but feel free to substitute any appropriate image. The entire project including images is available in Ch6_Example4.

How to do it...

Open AppMain.cs and replace Main with the following code:

public static void Main (string[] args)  {
  var graphics = new GraphicsContext ();
  graphics.SetClearColor (0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);
  Panel panel = new Panel();
  panel.Width = graphics.Screen.Width;
  panel.Height = graphics.Screen.Height;
  ImageBox imageBox = new ImageBox();
  imageBox.Image = new ImageAsset("/Application/FA-18h.png");
