This question relates to using touch methods in a UIScrollView. I am aware of numerous ways to interact with standard UIViews (touchesBegan, touchesMoved, etc), however, these do not work in a UIScrollView.

I have tried several methods to get around this but am getting no joy:

Using gestureRecognizers - great, but do not allow for touches to be tracked (like touchesMoved).

Using a UISubView - Just can't seem to get this working, I would love some insight here. There's a lot of attempts online, but I can't find a decent tutorial.

Here is my current code for the second method:

 //Set scrollview to size of image
self.myScrollView.contentSize = CGSizeMake(3072, 2304);
//Load image in big rect
UIImageView *myImageView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0,0, 3072, 2304)];
//set image to pic in bundle
myImageView.image = [UIImage imageNamed:@"dot.jpg"];
//make imageview subview of scrollview
[self.myScrollView addSubview: myImageView];
//Making subview for touches
CGRect frame  = CGRectMake(0, 0, 3072, 2304);
touchView = [[UIScrollView alloc] initWithFrame:frame];
[self.myScrollView addSubview: touchView];
//Allow for 2 touches to move screen
for (UIGestureRecognizer *gestureRecognizer in myScrollView.gestureRecognizers)
    if ([gestureRecognizer  isKindOfClass:[UIPanGestureRecognizer class]])
        UIPanGestureRecognizer *panGR = (UIPanGestureRecognizer *) gestureRecognizer;
        panGR.minimumNumberOfTouches = 2;            

Any insight or help would be great!
