Detailed Description

The QNativeGestureEvent class contains parameters that describe a gesture event.

Native gesture events are generated by the operating system, typically by interpreting touch events. Gesture events are high-level events such as zoom or rotate.

Event TypeDescriptionTouch equence
Qt::ZoomNativeGestureMagnification delta in percent.OS X: Two-finger pinch.
Qt::SmartZoomNativeGestureBoolean magnification state.OS X: Two-finger douple tap (trackpad) / One-finger douple tap (magic mouse).
Qt::RotateNativeGestureRotation delta in degrees.OS X: Two-finger rotate.

In addition, BeginNativeGesture and EndNativeGesture are sent before and after gesture event streams:

BeginNativeGesture ZoomNativeGesture ZoomNativeGesture ZoomNativeGesture EndNativeGesture

Member Function Documentation

QNativeGestureEvent::QNativeGestureEvent(Qt::NativeGestureType type, const QPointF &localPos, const QPointF &windowPos, const QPointF &screenPos, qreal realValue, ulong sequenceId, quint64 intValue)

Constructs a native gesture event of type type.

The points localPos, windowPos and screenPos specify the gesture position relative to the receiving widget or item, window, and screen, respectively.

realValue is the OS X event parameter, sequenceId and intValue are the Windows event parameters.

Qt::NativeGestureType QNativeGestureEvent::gestureType() const

Returns the gesture type.

This function was introduced in Qt 5.2.

const QPoint QNativeGestureEvent::globalPos() const

Returns the position of the gesture as a QPointF in screen coordinates

This function was introduced in Qt 5.2.

const QPointF &QNativeGestureEvent::localPos() const

Returns the position of the gesture as a QPointF, relative to the widget or item that received the event.

This function was introduced in Qt 5.2.

const QPoint QNativeGestureEvent::pos() const

Returns the position of the mouse cursor, relative to the widget or item that received the event.

This function was introduced in Qt 5.2.

const QPointF &QNativeGestureEvent::screenPos() const

Returns the position of the gesture as a QPointF in screen coordinates.

This function was introduced in Qt 5.2.

qreal QNativeGestureEvent::value() const

Returns the gesture value. The value should be interpreted based on the gesture type. For example, a Zoom gesture provides a scale factor while a Rotate gesture provides a rotation delta.

This function was introduced in Qt 5.2.

See also QNativeGestureEvent and gestureType().

const QPointF &QNativeGestureEvent::windowPos() const

Returns the position of the gesture as a QPointF, relative to the window that received the event.

This function was introduced in Qt 5.2.
