Abstract


The features in this specification extend or modify those found in Pointer Events, a W3C Recommendation that describes events and related interfaces for handling hardware agnostic pointer input from devices including a mouse, pen, touchscreen, etc. For compatibility with existing mouse based content, this specification also describes a mapping to fire Mouse Events for other pointer device types.

This specification is an update to [PointerEvents] which was shipped broadly only by Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge (though a further independent and mostly interoperable implementation was present in a pre-release build of Mozilla Firefox when the Pointer Events specification was published as a W3C Recommendation). Level 2 includes editorial clarifications, new features and minor breaking changes that address certain limitations and concerns that have been raised about aspects of the design, in an effort to enable wider browser adoption.

W3C publishes a Candidate Recommendation to indicate that the document is believed to be stable and to encourage implementation by the developer community.
