The TouchList interface represents a list of contact points on a touch surface. For example, if the user has three fingers on the touch surface (such as a screen or trackpad), the corresponding TouchList object would have one Touch object for each finger, for a total of three entries.


TouchList.length Read only
The number of Touch objects in the TouchList.


TouchList.identifiedTouch() This deprecated API should no longer be used, but will probably still work.
Returns the first Touch item in the list whose identifier matches a specified value.
Returns the Touch object at the specified index in the list.


See the example on the main Touch events article.
