Get the element under a touchend

As the touchend event is bind to the element where the touchstart is fired, how can I get the element at the position where the finger leaves, when this is outside of the element where the event was binded to.

Answer

You could use the document.elementFromPoint method, passing it the coordinates of the event:

$('#element').on("touchend",function(event){
    var endTarget = document.elementFromPoint(
        event.originalEvent.touches[0].pageX,
        event.originalEvent.touches[0].pageY
    );
});

EDIT: Found some good article about getting elements at specific coordinates. http://www.zehnet.de/2010/11/19/document-elementfrompoint-a-jquery-solution/
