GestureHandler

Since: BlackBerry 10.0.0

#include <bb/cascades/GestureHandler>

A base class for all gesture handlers which can be used to react to various gestures.

Existing gesture handlers:

Example of how to connect a gesture handler to a visual node:

Container* pContainer = Container::create();

LongPressHandler *pLongPressHandler = LongPressHandler::create()
    .onLongPressed(pMyObject, SLOT(onLongPressedHandler()));

pContainer->addGestureHandler(pLongPressHandler);

Matching code in QML:

Container {
    gestureHandlers: [
        LongPressHandler {
            onLongPressed: {
                console.log("LongPress at position " + event.x + ", " + event.y)
            }
        }
    ]
}

Properties

(Only has inherited properties)

QDeclarativeListProperty< QObject > attachedObjectsInherited[read-only]

A hierarchical list of the UIObject's attached objects.

This QDeclarativeListProperty can contain any QObject. When a QObject is added to property, the UIObject takes ownership of the attached object.

This feature is typically used from QML to specify business logic object or any other shared objects for the subnodes of this UIObject. In C++ the same functionality can be achived by setting a parent of a QObject to be attached to the QObject which is going to own it.

QML usage example (MyObject is a custom class registered for QML using the qmlRegisterType() function):

Container {
    Label { text: "Title: " + myObject.title } 
    Label { text: "Subject: " + myObject.subject }
    attachedObjects: [
        MyObject { id: myObject
            title: "Hello World"
            subject: "Nice Day"
        }
    ]
}

BlackBerry 10.0.0

QString objectNameInherited

This property is overridden from QObject.

As the objectName property is overridden from the QObject class, this signal will not be emitted if setObjectName() function is called directly on QObject.

The default value of this property is QString::null.

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.

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Public Functions

virtual~GestureHandler ()

Destructor.

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

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

(Only has inherited signals)

void creationCompleted ()Inherited

This signal is emitted only when this object is instantiated as a result of loading a QML document and creating the root node, or when an object is being constructed using its builder class.

This signal is emitted only 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 is emitted to indicate 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.

void objectNameChanged (Inherited

This signal is emitted when the objectName property is changed.
