This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.
UIEvent.sourceCapabilities read-only property returns an instance of the
InputDeviceCapabilities interface which provides information about the physical device responsible for generating a touch event. If no input device was responsible for the event, it returns
When a single user interaction with an input device generates a series of different input events, the
sourceCapabilities property for all of them will point to the same instance of
InputDeviceCapabilities. For example, when a user lifts their finger off of a touchscreen, several UIEvents may be generated including
focus. All of these events must have the same
sourceCapabilities representing the touchscreen.
A device is considered "responsible" for an event only when that interaction is part of the abstraction provided by the web platform. For example, many user agents allow a window to be resized with a mouse or a keyboard, but this detail is not exposed to the web platform in any way, and so the sourceCapabilities of a resize event will typically be null.
