Unfortunately, I did not make any further progress on this one. Stumped.

>> on mobile (just iOS at the moment) I’m trying to not only register a horizontal swipe in a UIScroller but to calculate the line in the field under the scroller so that I can perform a delete action. I can get the swipe but… while these calculations seem to work fairly well in the IDE, not so much in the simulator.  both the mouseH and the mouseLoc report a value but when I check it during scrollerDidScroll the X value is always 0 and the Y value is always the bottom of the screen… which of course is not particularly helpful. Am I doing something wrong or is this just not available when a scroller is under the “mouse”? Setting delayTouches and canCancelTouches to false doesn’t appear to change anything.
