Signals

Detailed Description

All visual primitives support key handling via the Keys attached property. Key input can be handled via the onPressed and onReleased signal handlers.

These signal handlers have a event parameter, which contains details about the KeyEvent.

Example Usage

The following example shows how the general onPressed handler can be used to test for a certain key:

Item {
    anchors.fill: parent
    Keys.onPressed: {
        if (event.key == Qt.Key_Left) {
            console.log("move left");
        }
    }
}

See Qt::Key for the list of keyboard codes.

Note: Key events are emitted only when you build and run the application for the Qt desktop backend.
