How can I pass a gesture recognizer from one view to another

I have a view which contains several subviews which are complex controls with several buttons.
The superview has gesture recognizers for taps, swipes etc.

In some cases, when receiving a single or double touch I would like the superview to pass the gesture recognizer to the subview for treatment.

  • How to track multiple touches
  • Click Event on UIImageView programmatically in ios
  • How to effectively process UITouches in a multitouch sequence
  • UISystemGateGestureRecognizer and delayed taps near bottom of screen
  • UIScrollview getting touch events
  • Is there a pointer for each touch point in ios
  • For instance:

    singletaprecognizer = [[UITapGestureRecognizer alloc] initWithTarget:self action:@selector(onSingleTapGestureRecognizerDetected:)];
    - (void)onSingleTapGestureRecognizerDetected:(UITapGestureRecognizer*)theTapGestureRecognizer
        if (someCaseHappens) {
            // do something with the gesture - for instance - move a control from one place to another or some other UI action in the superview
        else {
            // the subview will need to get the gesture and do something with it (imagine the touch was inside a button in a subview - the top superview should disregard the gesture and the button should be pressed) - THIS ISN"T HAPPENING NOW

    Well, you could create a custom view inheriting from UIView and then override:

    - (UIView *)hitTest:(CGPoint)point withEvent:(UIEvent *)event

    From this method you can return the view you want to handle the event.
