Detailed Description

The QScrollEvent class is sent when scrolling.

The scroll event is sent to indicate that the receiver should be scrolled. Usually the receiver should be something visual like QWidget or QGraphicsObject.

Some care should be taken that no conflicting QScrollEvents are sent from two sources. Using QScroller::scrollTo is save however.

QScrollEvent::QScrollEvent(const QPointF &contentPos, const QPointF &overshootDistance, ScrollState scrollState)

Creates a new QScrollEvent contentPos is the new content position, overshootDistance is the new overshoot distance while scrollState indicates if this scroll event is the first one, the last one or some event in between.


Destroys QScrollEvent.

QPointF QScrollEvent::contentPos() const

Returns the new scroll position.

QPointF QScrollEvent::overshootDistance() const

Returns the new overshoot distance. See QScroller for an explanation of the term overshoot.

See also QScroller.

ScrollState QScrollEvent::scrollState() const

Returns the current scroll state as a combination of ScrollStateFlag values. ScrollStarted (or ScrollFinished) will be set, if this scroll event is the first (or last) event in a scrolling activity. Please note that both values can be set at the same time, if the activity consists of a single QScrollEvent. All other scroll events in between will have their state set to ScrollUpdated.

A widget could for example revert selections when scrolling is started and stopped.
