Detailed Description#

If you wish to introduce a delay between animations in a QSequentialAnimationGroup , you can insert a QPauseAnimation . This class does not animate anything, but does not finish before a specified number of milliseconds have elapsed from when it was started. You specify the duration of the pause in the constructor. It can also be set directly with setDuration() .

It is not necessary to construct a QPauseAnimation yourself. QSequentialAnimationGroup provides the convenience functions addPause() and insertPause() . These functions simply take the number of milliseconds the pause should last.


Properties can be used directly when from __feature__ import true_property is used or via accessor functions otherwise.
