class Gdk::Event

Overview

GdkEvents are immutable data structures, created by GDK to represent windowing system events.

In GTK applications the events are handled automatically by toplevel widgets and passed on to the event controllers of appropriate widgets, so using GdkEvent and its related API is rarely needed.

def self.g_type : UInt64 #

Returns the type id (GType) registered in GLib type system.


Instance Method Detail

def _get_angle(event2 : Gdk::Event, angle : Float64) : Bool #

Returns the relative angle from @event1 to @event2.

The relative angle is the angle between the X axis and the line through both events' positions. The rotation direction for positive angles is from the positive X axis towards the positive Y axis.

This assumes that both events have X/Y information. If not, this function returns %FALSE.


def _get_center(event2 : Gdk::Event, x : Float64, y : Float64) : Bool #

Returns the point halfway between the events' positions.

This assumes that both events have X/Y information. If not, this function returns %FALSE.


def _get_distance(event2 : Gdk::Event, distance : Float64) : Bool #

Returns the distance between the event locations.

This assumes that both events have X/Y information. If not, this function returns %FALSE.


def axes(axes : Enumerable(Float64)) : Bool #

Extracts all axis values from an event.

To find out which axes are used, use Gdk::DeviceTool#axes on the device tool returned by Gdk::Event#device_tool.


def axes(*axes : Float64) #

def axis(axis_use : Gdk::AxisUse, value : Float64) : Bool #

Extract the axis value for a particular axis use from an event structure.

To find out which axes are used, use Gdk::DeviceTool#axes on the device tool returned by Gdk::Event#device_tool.


def device : Gdk::Device? #

Returns the device of an event.


def device_tool : Gdk::DeviceTool? #

Returns a GdkDeviceTool representing the tool that caused the event.

If the was not generated by a device that supports different tools (such as a tablet), this function will return %NULL.

Note: the GdkDeviceTool will be constant during the application lifetime, if settings must be stored persistently across runs, see Gdk::DeviceTool#serial.


def display : Gdk::Display? #

Retrieves the display associated to the @event.


def event_sequence : Gdk::EventSequence #

Retuns the event sequence to which the event belongs.

Related touch events are connected in a sequence. Other events typically don't have event sequence information.


def event_type : Gdk::EventType #

Retrieves the type of the event.


def finalize #

Called by the garbage collector. Decreases the reference count of object. (i.e. its memory is freed).


def history : Enumerable(Gdk::TimeCoord)? #

Retrieves the history of the device that @event is for, as a list of time and coordinates.

The history includes positions that are not delivered as separate events to the application because they occurred in the same frame as @event.

Note that only motion and scroll events record history, and motion events do it only if one of the mouse buttons is down, or the device has a tool.


def modifier_state : Gdk::ModifierType #

Returns the modifier state field of an event.


def pointer_emulated : Bool #

Returns whether this event is an 'emulated' pointer event.

Emulated pointer events typically originate from a touch events.


def position(x : Float64, y : Float64) : Bool #

Extract the event surface relative x/y coordinates from an event.


def seat : Gdk::Seat? #

Returns the seat that originated the event.


def surface : Gdk::Surface? #

Extracts the surface associated with an event.


def time : UInt32 #

Returns the timestamp of @event.

Not all events have timestamps. In that case, this function returns %GDK_CURRENT_TIME.


def to_unsafe : Pointer(Void) #

Returns a pointer to the C object.


def triggers_context_menu : Bool #

Returns whether a GdkEvent should trigger a context menu, according to platform conventions.

The right mouse button typically triggers context menus.

This function should always be used instead of simply checking for event->button == %GDK_BUTTON_SECONDARY.
