How to cancel/reset an UIGestureRecognizer

how can I cancel or reset an UIGestureRecognizer? The problem is, that if I set waitForSomething to NO during a gesture, the next event is UIGestureRecognizerStateChanged. But the first event should be UIGestureRecognizerStateBegan.

My Code:

- (void) panned:(UIPanGestureRecognizer *) recognizer {
    if (waitForSomething) {
        // cancel or reset the recognizer!
        // because the next event should be UIGestureRecognizerStateBegan and not UIGestureRecognizerStateChanged

    switch (recognizer.state) {
        case UIGestureRecognizerStateBegan:
            // important initialisation code

        case UIGestureRecognizerStateChanged:
            // do something

Thank you for you help!


I got it! :-)

Maybe someone else runs in this problem, here is the solution:

if (waitForSomething) {
    recognizer.enabled = NO;
    recognizer.enabled = YES;

The next event will be UIGestureRecognizerStateFailed followed by UIGestureRecognizerStateBegan.

Swift 4:

if waitForSomething {
    recognizer.isEnabled = false
    recognizer.isEnabled = true

If you need to do this in more than one place:

in Swift

extension UIGestureRecognizer
    func cancel() {
        isEnabled = false
        isEnabled = true

Java casting: is the compiler wrong, or is the language spec wrong, or am I wrong?

java javac jls

I have been reading the Java Language Spec, 3rd edition, and have found what I think is a discrepancy between the spec and the javac compiler implementation. The same discrepancies exist in the Ecl...
