DownEvent is not defined when creating a multi-touch event

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

Describe the bug I am trying to use long press gestures in my testing cases but it says that downevent is not defined. Even though I am following the playground example and importing all dependancies, it still gives me an error.

I want to tap at one point, swipe down, then contiune to hold that swipe for 3 seconds and then let go. Is there another way of achieving this? Thanks.
