AbstractDialog

Since: BlackBerry 10.0.0

#include <bb/cascades/AbstractDialog>

A base class for UI elements that represent full-screen view.

The AbstractDialog class is an abstract class that is used as a base for UI elements that change the normal flow of an application. For example, in an email application, adding a new contact could be considered a subtask that is separate from the main flow of the application, and so could be implemented using any of AbstractDialog's subclasses e.g. Sheet or Dialog.

This class provides a way for subclasses to open or close the dialog using corresponding open() and close() functions.

The two concrete subclasses of this class are Sheet and Dialog.

Properties

bb::cascades::AbstractA11yObject accessibility[read-only]

Defines this dialog's accessibility objects.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.2.0

bool opened[read-only]

Indicates whether the dialog is currently opened.

If the value is true, the dialog is opened. If it is false, the dialog is closed.

The default value of this property is false.

The openedChanged() signal is emitted when this property changes.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

QDeclarativeListProperty< QObject > attachedObjectsInherited[read-only]

A hierarchical list of the UIObject's attached objects.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

QString objectNameInherited

This property is overridden from QObject.

See also:

QObject::objectName().

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

QObject parentInherited[read-only]

A read-only property that represents this object's parent.

The parent of an object is specified using QObject::setParent(QObject*). The purpose of the property is to expose the object's parent to QML.

This property is read-only to prevent modifications from QML, where typically the parent is declaratively set. In C++ code, the parent can be explicitly set using QObject::setParent(QObject*), or implicitly set by adding it to a visual container.

The default value of this property is 0.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

bb::cascades::UIConfig uiInherited[read-only]

An object that gives access to unit conversion routines.

QML use:
        // Size using design units
        Container {
            preferredWidth: ui.du(12)
            preferredHeight: ui.du(5)
        }

        // Size using design units, snap to whole pixels
        Container {
            preferredWidth: ui.sdu(13.5)
            preferredHeight: ui.sdu(7.5)
        }

        // Size using absolute pixel values
        Container {
            preferredWidth: ui.px(150)
            preferredHeight: ui.px(50)
        }
C++ use:
Container *container1 = Container::create().background(Color::Red);
UIConfig *ui = container1->ui();
container1->setPreferredWidth(ui->du(12));
container1->setPreferredHeight(ui->du(5));

Container *container2 = Container::create().background(Color::Green);
container2->setPreferredWidth(ui->sdu(13.5));
container2->setPreferredHeight(ui->sdu(7.5));

Container *container3 = Container::create().background(Color::Blue);
container3->setPreferredWidth(ui->px(150));
container3->setPreferredHeight(ui->sdu(50));

Public Functions

virtual~AbstractDialog ()

Destructor.

bb::cascades::AbstractA11yObject * accessibility ()

Returns the accessibility object.

Return:

The accessibility object.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.2.0

Q_SLOT void close ()

Closes the dialog.

When the dialog is closed, the value of the opened property changes to false and the closed() signal is emitted. The closed() signal might not be emitted immediately when this function is called, but could happen asynchronously at a later time.

If called when the dialog is already opening or closing, this function has no effect.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

bool isOpened ()

Indicates whether the dialog is opened.

Return:

true if the dialog is opened, false otherwise.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Q_SLOT void open ()

Opens the dialog.

When the dialog is opened, the value of the opened property changes to true and the opened() signal is emitted. The opened() signal might not be emitted immediately when this function is called, but could happen asynchronously at a later time.

If called when the dialog is already opening or closing, this function has no effect.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

virtual bool event (Inherited

Overloaded to implement the event mechanism in Cascades.

Warning!

If this function is overridden, it must be called by the derived class for events to work properly in Cascades.

Parameters
event

The received event.

Return:

True if the received event was recognized and processed, false otherwise.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void setObjectName (Inherited

Sets the objectName property.

Parameters
name

The new name for the object.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

virtual Q_INVOKABLE QString toDebugString ()Inherited

Returns a debug string representing this object.

Return:

A debug string for the object.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Q_INVOKABLE bb::cascades::UIConfig * ui ()Inherited

Returns the UIConfig for this ui object.

The UIConfig can be used to perform unit conversions from design units (du) and snapped design units (sdu) to pixels.

Ownership remains with Cascades.

C++ use:
Container *container1 = Container::create().background(Color::Red);
UIConfig *ui = container1->ui();
container1->setPreferredWidth(ui->du(12));
container1->setPreferredHeight(ui->du(5));

Container *container2 = Container::create().background(Color::Green);
container2->setPreferredWidth(ui->sdu(13.5));
container2->setPreferredHeight(ui->sdu(7.5));

Container *container3 = Container::create().background(Color::Blue);
container3->setPreferredWidth(ui->px(150));
container3->setPreferredHeight(ui->sdu(50));
Return:

The UIConfig for this ui object.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.3.0

Protected Functions

(Only has inherited protected functions)

BaseObject (Inherited

Constructs an instance of BaseObject's subclass.

Parameters
parent

An optional parent, defaults to 0.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

virtual void connectNotify (
  • const char *signal)
Inherited

Overloaded to implement the event mechanism in Cascades.

If this function is overridden, it must be called by the derived class for events to work properly in Cascades.

Parameters
signal

The connected signal.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

virtual void disconnectNotify (
  • const char *signal)
Inherited

Overloaded to implement the event mechanism in Cascades.

If this function is overridden, it must be called by the derived class for events to work properly in Cascades.

Parameters
signal

The disconnected signal.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Signals

void closed ()

Emitted when the dialog is closed.

The signal is emitted asynchronously when the dialog is completely closed after the close animation is finished.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void opened ()

Emitted when the dialog is opened.

The signal is emitted asynchronously when the dialog is completely opened after the open animation is finished.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void openedChanged (
  • boolopened)

Emitted when the opened property changes its value.

Parameters
opened

If true the dialog is opened, if false the dialog is closed.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void creationCompleted ()Inherited

Emitted when this object is instantiated as a result of loading a QML document and creating the root node (only after the root component that caused this instantiation has completed construction), or when the object is being constructed from its builder class.

This signal indicates that the construction and initialization of the object has been completed, the properties are initialized, and any QML binding values have been assigned to the object.

This signal is not emitted when the object is constructed from C++ using the constructor. If the object is constructed using its builder class, the signal is emitted when the the builder class returns the fully constructed object.

This signal can be used when there is an activity that needs to be performed, such as a property state integrity verification after the object is instantiated from a QML document or a builder, but before control is returned to the application.

QmlDocument

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void objectNameChanged (Inherited

This signal is emitted when the objectName property is changed.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0
