Neptune 3 UI Cursor Management Support

Neptune 3 UI comes with cursor support to enable navigating the UI via other input methods, besides touch, such as a keyboard or gamepad.

Use the Cursor

Neptune 3 UI integrates the experimental Cursor Management plugin from Qt Labs. For more details, see the Cursor Management Plugin source code.

Once the plugin is installed, you can import it in QML as follows:

import CursorNavigation 1.0

Two QML types have been created in Neptune3UI for cursor implementation: CursorManagement and CursorManagementDummy. Each time the UI starts, a Loader loads the correct file,

  • CursorManagement -- if the Cursor Management Plugin is available
  • CursorManagementDummy -- if the Cursor Management Plugin isn't available

This is done for stability without depending on the plugin's availability on the system. The process above is done inside Cursor.qml, a file that also contains all necessary bindings and API for the Cursor interface. It's this type that is instantiated in the element in which we want to have cursor support.

T.Button {
    id: control

    Cursor { }

List of Members

Besides the properties, functions and signals that come with the cursor management plugin, Neptune 3 UI adds and additional signal, pressAndHold, to simulate a long press event.

T.Button {
    id: control

    Cursor {
        onPressAndHold: {
