Adding gestures on lockscreen-widgets possible @android 4.2+?

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – Currently i am trying to build a lockscreen-widget that serves as a launcher for some custom-activity. By its nature, i can just do a simple onClick to "activate" the widget, but it is not handy for my needs. In some 3+ year-old threads i learned, that alternative gestures like a swipe isnt supported in terms of a bad usability --> swipe normally serves as pagescroller. Though i didn't find any up-to-date information on this matter. Does anyone know if it is still only possible to interact with a simple onClick on a widget? If no, what are my possible gestures? thanks in advance, bofredo (HowTos)
