This class was introduced in Qt 4.6.

Synopsis

Detailed Description

The PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent class provides the description of triggered gestures.

The PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent class contains a list of gestures, which can be obtained using the PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.gestures() function.

The gestures are either active or canceled. A list of those that are currently being executed can be obtained using the PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.activeGestures() function. A list of those which were previously active and have been canceled can be accessed using the PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.canceledGestures() function. A gesture might be canceled if the current window loses focus, for example, or because of a timeout, or for other reasons.

If the event handler does not accept the event by calling the generic QEvent.accept() function, all individual PySide2.QtWidgets.QGesture object that were not accepted and in the Qt.GestureStarted state will be propagated up the parent widget chain until a widget accepts them individually, by calling QGestureEvent.accept() for each of them, or an event filter consumes the event.

class PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent(gestures)
Parameters:gestures

Creates new PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent containing a list of gestures .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.accept(arg__1)
Parameters:arg__1PySide2.QtCore.Qt.GestureType

Sets the accept flag of the given gestureType , the equivalent of calling setAccepted(gestureType, true) .

Setting the accept flag indicates that the event receiver wants the gesture. Unwanted gestures may be propagated to the parent widget.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.accept(arg__1)
Parameters:arg__1PySide2.QtWidgets.QGesture

Sets the accept flag of the given gesture object, the equivalent of calling setAccepted(gesture, true) .

Setting the accept flag indicates that the event receiver wants the gesture. Unwanted gestures may be propagated to the parent widget.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.activeGestures()
Return type:

Returns a list of active (not canceled) gestures.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.canceledGestures()
Return type:

Returns a list of canceled gestures.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.gesture(type)
Parameters:typePySide2.QtCore.Qt.GestureType
Return type:PySide2.QtWidgets.QGesture

Returns a gesture object by type .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.gestures()
Return type:

Returns all gestures that are delivered in the event.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.ignore(arg__1)
Parameters:arg__1PySide2.QtWidgets.QGesture

Clears the accept flag parameter of the given gesture object, the equivalent of calling setAccepted(gesture, false) .

Clearing the accept flag indicates that the event receiver does not want the gesture. Unwanted gestures may be propagated to the parent widget.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.ignore(arg__1)
Parameters:arg__1PySide2.QtCore.Qt.GestureType

Clears the accept flag parameter of the given gestureType , the equivalent of calling setAccepted(gesture, false) .

Clearing the accept flag indicates that the event receiver does not want the gesture. Unwanted gestures may be propgated to the parent widget.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.isAccepted(arg__1)
Parameters:arg__1PySide2.QtCore.Qt.GestureType
Return type:PySide2.QtCore.bool

Returns true if the gesture of type gestureType is accepted; otherwise returns false .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.isAccepted(arg__1)
Parameters:arg__1PySide2.QtWidgets.QGesture
Return type:PySide2.QtCore.bool

Returns true if the gesture is accepted; otherwise returns false .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.mapToGraphicsScene(gesturePoint)
Parameters:gesturePointPySide2.QtCore.QPointF
Return type:PySide2.QtCore.QPointF

Returns the scene-local coordinates if the gesturePoint is inside a graphics view.

This functional might be useful when the gesture event is delivered to a PySide2.QtWidgets.QGraphicsObject to translate a point in screen coordinates to scene-local coordinates.

QPointF.isNull()

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.setAccepted(arg__1, arg__2)
Parameters:
  • arg__1PySide2.QtCore.Qt.GestureType
  • arg__2PySide2.QtCore.bool

Sets the accept flag of the given gestureType object to the specified value .

Setting the accept flag indicates that the event receiver wants to receive gestures of the specified type, gestureType . Unwanted gestures may be propagated to the parent widget.

By default, gestures in events of type QEvent.Gesture are accepted, and gestures in QEvent.GestureOverride events are ignored.

For convenience, the accept flag can also be set with accept(gestureType) , and cleared with ignore(gestureType) .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.setAccepted(arg__1, arg__2)
Parameters:

Sets the accept flag of the given gesture object to the specified value .

Setting the accept flag indicates that the event receiver wants the gesture . Unwanted gestures may be propagated to the parent widget.

By default, gestures in events of type QEvent.Gesture are accepted, and gestures in QEvent.GestureOverride events are ignored.

For convenience, the accept flag can also be set with accept(gesture) , and cleared with ignore(gesture) .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.setWidget(widget)
Parameters:widgetPySide2.QtWidgets.QWidget

Sets the widget for this event to the widget specified.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGestureEvent.widget()
Return type:PySide2.QtWidgets.QWidget

Returns the widget on which the event occurred.
