Stop UIWebView Tap Gesture while its scrolling ios

I am using tap gesture to detect tap on UIWebView and it works correct with following code:

UITapGestureRecognizer *targetGesture = [[UITapGestureRecognizer alloc] initWithTarget:self action:@selector(handleTap:)]; targetGesture.numberOfTapsRequired = 1; targetGesture.delegate = self; [_webView1 addGestureRecognizer:targetGesture];

And i am handling it with UIGestureRecognizerDelegate methods as follows:-

(void)handleTap:(UITapGestureRecognizer *)sender (BOOL)gestureRecognizer:(UIGestureRecognizer *)gestureRecognizer shouldRecognizeSimultaneouslyWithGestureRecognizer:(UIGestureRecognizer *)otherGestureRecognizer (BOOL)gestureRecognizer:(UIGestureRecognizer *)gestureRecognizer shouldReceiveTouch:(UITouch *)touch

Now I want to disable tap gesture while UIWebView is scrolling.

Same as "NYTimes" ios app doing.


You can disable tap gesture like this.

UITapGestureRecognizer *tapGesture = [[UITapGestureRecognizer alloc] init]; tapGesture.enabled = NO;

I finally resolved it by using following method of UIWebView:-

- (BOOL)webView:(UIWebView*)webView shouldStartLoadWithRequest:(NSURLRequest*)request navigationType:(UIWebViewNavigationType)navigationType {

if(navigationType == UIWebViewNavigationTypeLinkClicked)
NSString *URL = [[request URL] absoluteString];
DetailViewController *controller = [self.storyboard instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"DetailView"];
controller.urlString = URL;
[self.navigationController pushViewController:controller animated:YES];
[webView stopLoading];

return YES;
