    Default How to detect pinch gesture on Mac touch pad?

    Hi, I am trying to figure out if there is a way to detect the pinch-to-zoom gesture on a MacBook touchpad and how to do it. What I have in mind is something like a public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e){} method of a MouseInputAdapter. (i.e. it would be something like public void mousePinched..?). Is there anything like this available? Is there another way to detect this gesture?

    Fascinating question - sorry I can't help but maybe Mac OS X Multitouch Event API — Project Kenai is useful. What they appear to suggest there is that there's no native support (as there is for Android etc).
