Action for clickable actors

ClutterClickAction is a sub-class of ClutterAction that implements the logic for clickable actors, by using the low level events of ClutterActor, such as ClutterActor::button-press-event and ClutterActor::button-release-event, to synthesize the high level ClutterClickAction::clicked signal.

To use ClutterClickAction you just need to apply it to a ClutterActor using clutter_actor_add_action() and connect to the ClutterClickAction::clicked signal:

  ClutterAction *action = clutter_click_action_new ();

  clutter_actor_add_action (actor, action);

  g_signal_connect (action, "clicked", G_CALLBACK (on_clicked), NULL);

ClutterClickAction also supports long press gestures: a long press is activated if the pointer remains pressed within a certain threshold (as defined by the ClutterClickAction:long-press-threshold property) for a minimum amount of time (as the defined by the ClutterClickAction:long-press-duration property). The ClutterClickAction::long-press signal is emitted multiple times, using different ClutterLongPressState values; to handle long presses you should connect to the ClutterClickAction::long-press signal and handle the different states:

  static gboolean
  on_long_press (ClutterClickAction    *action,
                 ClutterActor          *actor,
                 ClutterLongPressState  state)
  {
    switch (state)
      {
      case CLUTTER_LONG_PRESS_QUERY:
        // return TRUE if the actor should support long press
        // gestures, and FALSE otherwise; this state will be
        // emitted on button presses
        return TRUE;

      case CLUTTER_LONG_PRESS_ACTIVATE:
        // this state is emitted if the minimum duration has
        // been reached without the gesture being cancelled.
        // the return value is not used
        return TRUE;

      case CLUTTER_LONG_PRESS_CANCEL:
        // this state is emitted if the long press was cancelled;
        // for instance, the pointer went outside the actor or the
        // allowed threshold, or the button was released before
        // the minimum duration was reached. the return value is
        // not used
        return FALSE;
      }
  }

Instance methods

clutter_click_action_get_button

Retrieves the button that was pressed.

Signals

Clutter.ClickAction::clicked

The signal is emitted when the ClutterActor to which a ClutterClickAction has been applied should respond to a pointer button press and release events.

Clutter.ClickAction::long-press

The signal is emitted during the long press gesture handling.

Signals inherited from GObject (1)
GObject::notify

The notify signal is emitted on an object when one of its properties has its value set through g_object_set_property(), g_object_set(), et al.
