Detailed Description

All visual items in Qt Quick inherit from QQuickItem . Although a QQuickItem instance has no visual appearance, it defines all the attributes that are common across visual items, such as x and y position, width and height, anchoring and key handling support.

You can subclass QQuickItem to provide your own custom visual item that inherits these features.

Custom Scene Graph Items

All visual QML items are rendered using the scene graph, the default implementation of which is a low-level, high-performance rendering stack, closely tied to OpenGL. It is possible for subclasses of QQuickItem to add their own custom content into the scene graph by setting the ItemHasContents flag and reimplementing the updatePaintNode() function.

Warning

It is crucial that OpenGL operations and interaction with the scene graph happens exclusively on the rendering thread, primarily during the updatePaintNode() call. The best rule of thumb is to only use classes with the “QSG” prefix inside the updatePaintNode() function.

Note

All classes with QSG prefix should be used solely on the scene graph’s rendering thread. See Scene Graph and Rendering for more information.

Graphics Resource Handling

The preferred way to handle cleanup of graphics resources used in the scene graph, is to rely on the automatic cleanup of nodes. A QSGNode returned from updatePaintNode() is automatically deleted on the right thread at the right time. Trees of QSGNode instances are managed through the use of OwnedByParent , which is set by default. So, for the majority of custom scene graph items, no extra work will be required.

Implementations that store graphics resources outside the node tree, such as an item implementing textureProvider() , will need to take care in cleaning it up correctly depending on how the item is used in QML. The situations to handle are:

  • The scene graph is invalidated; This can happen, for instance, if the window is hidden using hide() . If the item class implements a slot named invalidateSceneGraph(), this slot will be called on the rendering thread while the GUI thread is blocked. This is equivalent to connecting to sceneGraphInvalidated() . The OpenGL context of this item’s window will be bound when this slot is called. The only exception is if the native OpenGL has been destroyed outside Qt’s control, for instance through EGL_CONTEXT_LOST.

  • The item is removed from the scene; If an item is taken out of the scene, for instance because it’s parent was set to null or an item in another window, the releaseResources() will be called on the GUI thread. scheduleRenderJob() should be used to schedule cleanup of rendering resources.

  • The item is deleted; When the destructor if an item runs, it should delete any graphics resources it has. If neither of the two conditions above were already met, the item will be part of a window and it is possible to use scheduleRenderJob() to have them cleaned up. If an implementation ignores the call to releaseResources() , the item will in many cases no longer have access to a QQuickWindow and thus no means of scheduling cleanup.

When scheduling cleanup of graphics resources using scheduleRenderJob() , one should use either BeforeSynchronizingStage or AfterSynchronizingStage . The synchronization stage is where the scene graph is changed as a result of changes to the QML tree. If cleanup is scheduled at any other time, it may result in other parts of the scene graph referencing the newly deleted objects as these parts have not been updated.

Note

Use of deleteLater() to clean up graphics resources is not recommended as this will run at an arbitrary time and it is unknown if there will be an OpenGL context bound when the deletion takes place.

Custom QPainter Items

The QQuickItem provides a subclass, QQuickPaintedItem , which allows the users to render content using QPainter .

Warning

Using QQuickPaintedItem uses an indirect 2D surface to render its content, either using software rasterization or using an OpenGL framebuffer object (FBO), so the rendering is a two-step operation. First rasterize the surface, then draw the surface. Using scene graph API directly is always significantly faster.

Behavior Animations

If your Item uses the Behavior type to define animations for property changes, you should always use either setProperty() , QQmlProperty(), or write() when you need to modify those properties from C++. This ensures that the QML engine knows about the property change. Otherwise, the engine won’t be able to carry out your requested animation. Note that these functions incur a slight performance penalty. For more details, see Accessing Members of a QML Object Type from C++ .

See also

activeFocus

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.forceActiveFocus(reason)
Parameters

reasonFocusReason

This is an overloaded function.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.geometryChanged(newGeometry, oldGeometry)
Parameters
  • newGeometryQRectF

  • oldGeometryQRectF

This function is called to handle this item’s changes in geometry from oldGeometry to newGeometry . If the two geometries are the same, it doesn’t do anything.

Derived classes must call the base class method within their implementation.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.grabMouse()

Grabs the mouse input.

This item will receive all mouse events until ungrabMouse() is called. Usually this function should not be called, since accepting for example a mouse press event makes sure that the following events are delivered to the item. If an item wants to take over mouse events from the current receiver, it needs to call this function.

Warning

This function should be used with caution.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.grabToImage(callback[, targetSize=QSize()])
Parameters
  • callbackQJSValue

  • targetSizeQSize

Return type

bool

Only visible from QML.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.grabToImage([targetSize=QSize()])
Parameters

targetSizeQSize

Return type

QSharedPointer

Grabs the item into an in-memory image.

The grab happens asynchronously and the signal ready() is emitted when the grab has been completed.

Use targetSize to specify the size of the target image. By default, the result will have the same size as item.

If the grab could not be initiated, the function returns null .

Note

This function will render the item to an offscreen surface and copy that surface from the GPU’s memory into the CPU’s memory, which can be quite costly. For “live” preview, use layers or ShaderEffectSource .

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.setKeepMouseGrab(arg__1)
Parameters

arg__1bool

Sets whether the mouse input should remain exclusively with this item.

This is useful for items that wish to grab and keep mouse interaction following a predefined gesture. For example, an item that is interested in horizontal mouse movement may set keepMouseGrab to true once a threshold has been exceeded. Once keepMouseGrab has been set to true, filtering items will not react to mouse events.

If keep is false, a filtering item may steal the grab. For example, Flickable may attempt to steal a mouse grab if it detects that the user has begun to move the viewport.

keepMouseGrab()

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.setKeepTouchGrab(arg__1)
Parameters

arg__1bool

Sets whether the touch points grabbed by this item should remain exclusively with this item.

This is useful for items that wish to grab and keep specific touch points following a predefined gesture. For example, an item that is interested in horizontal touch point movement may set to true once a threshold has been exceeded. Once has been set to true, filtering items will not react to the relevant touch points.

If keep is false, a filtering item may steal the grab. For example, Flickable may attempt to steal a touch point grab if it detects that the user has begun to move the viewport.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.stackAfter(arg__1)
Parameters

arg__1QQuickItem

Moves the specified sibling item to the index after this item within the list of children. The order of children affects both the visual stacking order and tab focus navigation order.

Assuming the z values of both items are the same, this will cause sibling to be rendered below this item.

If both items have activeFocusOnTab set to true , this will also cause the tab focus order to change, with sibling receiving focus before this item.

The given sibling must be a sibling of this item; that is, they must have the same immediate parent .

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.stackBefore(arg__1)
Parameters

arg__1QQuickItem

Moves the specified sibling item to the index before this item within the list of children. The order of children affects both the visual stacking order and tab focus navigation order.

Assuming the z values of both items are the same, this will cause sibling to be rendered above this item.

If both items have activeFocusOnTab set to true , this will also cause the tab focus order to change, with sibling receiving focus after this item.

The given sibling must be a sibling of this item; that is, they must have the same immediate parent .

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.stateChanged(arg__1)
Parameters

arg__1 – unicode

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.textureProvider()
Return type

QSGTextureProvider

Returns the texture provider for an item. The default implementation returns None .

This function may only be called on the rendering thread.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.touchEvent(event)
Parameters

eventQTouchEvent

This event handler can be reimplemented in a subclass to receive touch events for an item. The event information is provided by the event parameter.

The event is accepted by default, so it is not necessary to explicitly accept the event if you reimplement this function. If you don’t accept the event, call event->ignore() .

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.touchUngrabEvent()

This event handler can be reimplemented in a subclass to be notified when a touch ungrab event has occurred on this item.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.transformOrigin()
Return type

TransformOrigin

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.transformOriginChanged(arg__1)
Parameters

arg__1TransformOrigin

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.transformOriginPoint()
Return type

QPointF

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.ungrabMouse()

Releases the mouse grab following a call to grabMouse() .

Note that this function should only be called when the item wants to stop handling further events. There is no need to call this function after a release or cancel event since no future events will be received in any case. No move or release events will be delivered after this function was called.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.ungrabTouchPoints()

Ungrabs the touch points owned by this item.

Note

there is hardly any reason to call this function. It should only be called when an item does not want to receive any further events, so no move or release events will be delivered after calling this function.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.unsetCursor()

Clears the cursor shape for this item.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.update()

Schedules a call to updatePaintNode() for this item.

The call to updatePaintNode() will always happen if the item is showing in a QQuickWindow .

Only items which specify ItemHasContents are allowed to call .

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.updateInputMethod([queries=Qt.ImQueryInput])
Parameters

queriesInputMethodQueries

Notify input method on updated query values if needed. queries indicates the changed attributes.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.updatePaintNode(arg__1, arg__2)
Parameters
  • arg__1QSGNode

  • arg__2UpdatePaintNodeData

Return type

QSGNode

Called on the render thread when it is time to sync the state of the item with the scene graph.

The function is called as a result of update() , if the user has set the ItemHasContents flag on the item.

The function should return the root of the scene graph subtree for this item. Most implementations will return a single QSGGeometryNode containing the visual representation of this item. oldNode is the node that was returned the last time the function was called. updatePaintNodeData provides a pointer to the QSGTransformNode associated with this QQuickItem .

QSGNode *MyItem::updatePaintNode(QSGNode *node, UpdatePaintNodeData *)
{
    QSGSimpleRectNode *n = static_cast<QSGSimpleRectNode *>(node);
    if (!n) {
        n = new QSGSimpleRectNode();
        n->setColor(Qt::red);
    }
    n->setRect(boundingRect());
    return n;
}

The main thread is blocked while this function is executed so it is safe to read values from the QQuickItem instance and other objects in the main thread.

If no call to result in actual scene graph changes, like markDirty() or adding and removing nodes, then the underlying implementation may decide to not render the scene again as the visual outcome is identical.

Warning

It is crucial that OpenGL operations and interaction with the scene graph happens exclusively on the render thread, primarily during the call. The best rule of thumb is to only use classes with the “QSG” prefix inside the function.

Warning

This function is called on the render thread. This means any QObjects or thread local storage that is created will have affinity to the render thread, so apply caution when doing anything other than rendering in this function. Similarly for signals, these will be emitted on the render thread and will thus often be delivered via queued connections.

Note

All classes with QSG prefix should be used solely on the scene graph’s rendering thread. See Scene Graph and Rendering for more information.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.updatePolish()

This function should perform any layout as required for this item.

When polish() is called, the scene graph schedules a polish event for this item. When the scene graph is ready to render this item, it calls to do any item layout as required before it renders the next frame.

PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.visibleChanged()
PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.visibleChildrenChanged()
PySide2.QtQuick.QQuickItem.wheelEvent(event)
Parameters

eventQWheelEvent

This event handler can be reimplemented in a subclass to receive wheel events for an item. The event information is provided by the event parameter.

The event is accepted by default, so it is not necessary to explicitly accept the event if you reimplement this function. If you don’t accept the event, call event->ignore() .
