I am having the most annoying situation. Ok, here goes. I am using a javascript based sliding menu for a mobile app. The "slider" works just like Facebook mobile, where u can click the button to show the menu on the left and click it again to close the menu. As an alternative, if u touch the still visible part of the page when the menu is showing it will also close. And that's it.

Problem: Note that I'm using Phonegap for this app. When i run the iOS simulator in Xcode all works fine EXCEPT if u swipeleft, for example, the page will move. I want to disable the swipe event all together. I have tried preventDefault, return false etc. Nothing seems to work. Again, my only goal is to disable touch events because for this app, I simply don't need em. Please see the javascript code for the menu show/hide below.

Thanks is advance. All is appreciated.

Code Below....................................

$(function(){ var menuStatus;

// Show menu
$("a.showMenu").click(function(){

$('#menu').show();
    if(menuStatus != true){

    $(".ui-page-active").animate({
        marginLeft: "170px",

      }, 300, function(){menuStatus = true});
      return false;
      } else {

        $(".ui-page-active").animate({
            marginLeft: "0px",

      }, 300, function(){menuStatus = false});
        return false;
      }

});


// Menu behaviour
$("#menu li a").click(function(){
    var p = $(this).parent();
    if($(p).hasClass('active')){
        $("#menu li").removeClass('active');
    } else {
        $("#menu li").removeClass('active');
        $(p).addClass('active');
    }
});
});
