class Gtk::EventControllerScroll


Gtk::EventControllerScroll is an event controller that handles scroll events.

It is capable of handling both discrete and continuous scroll events from mice or touchpads, abstracting them both with the Gtk::EventControllerScroll::#scroll signal. Deltas in the discrete case are multiples of 1.

In the case of continuous scroll events, Gtk::EventControllerScroll encloses all Gtk::EventControllerScroll::#scroll emissions between two [signal@Gtk.EventControllerScroll::scroll-begin] and [signal@Gtk.EventControllerScroll::scroll-end] signals.

The behavior of the event controller can be modified by the flags given at creation time, or modified at a later point through Gtk::EventControllerScroll#flags= (e.g. because the scrolling conditions of the widget changed).

The controller can be set up to emit motion for either/both vertical and horizontal scroll events through %GTK_EVENT_CONTROLLER_SCROLL_VERTICAL, %GTK_EVENT_CONTROLLER_SCROLL_HORIZONTAL and %GTK_EVENT_CONTROLLER_SCROLL_BOTH_AXES. If any axis is disabled, the respective Gtk::EventControllerScroll::#scroll delta will be 0. Vertical scroll events will be translated to horizontal motion for the devices incapable of horizontal scrolling.

The event controller can also be forced to emit discrete events on all devices through %GTK_EVENT_CONTROLLER_SCROLL_DISCRETE. This can be used to implement discrete actions triggered through scroll events (e.g. switching across combobox options).

The %GTK_EVENT_CONTROLLER_SCROLL_KINETIC flag toggles the emission of the Gtk::EventControllerScroll::#decelerate signal, emitted at the end of scrolling with two X/Y velocity arguments that are consistent with the motion that was received.
