Detailed Description

touchscreen input device

The wl_touch interface represents a touchscreen associated with a seat.

Touch interactions can consist of one or more contacts. For each contact, a series of events is generated, starting with a down event, followed by zero or more motion events, and ending with an up event. Events relating to the same contact point can be identified by the ID of the sequence.

Member Function Documentation

bool touch_t::can_orientation () const

Check whether the orientation function is available with the currently bound version of the protocol.

Definition at line 2906 of file wayland-server-protocol.cpp.

bool touch_t::can_shape () const

Check whether the shape function is available with the currently bound version of the protocol.

Definition at line 2896 of file wayland-server-protocol.cpp.

void touch_t::cancel (bool post = true)

touch session cancelled Sent if the compositor decides the touch stream is a global gesture. No further events are sent to the clients from that particular gesture. Touch cancellation applies to all touch points currently active on this client's surface. The client is responsible for finalizing the touch points, future touch points on this surface may reuse the touch point ID.

Definition at line 2886 of file wayland-server-protocol.cpp.

void touch_t::down (uint32_t serial, uint32_t time, surface_t const & surface, int32_t id, double x, double y, bool post = true)

touch down event and beginning of a touch sequence

Parameters

serial serial number of the touch down event
time timestamp with millisecond granularity
surface surface touched
id the unique ID of this touch point
x surface-local x coordinate
y surface-local y coordinate

A new touch point has appeared on the surface. This touch point is assigned a unique ID. Future events from this touch point reference this ID. The ID ceases to be valid after a touch up event and may be reused in the future.

Definition at line 2866 of file wayland-server-protocol.cpp.

void touch_t::frame (bool post = true)

end of touch frame event Indicates the end of a set of events that logically belong together. A client is expected to accumulate the data in all events within the frame before proceeding.

A wl_touch.frame terminates at least one event but otherwise no guarantee is provided about the set of events within a frame. A client must assume that any state not updated in a frame is unchanged from the previously known state.

Definition at line 2881 of file wayland-server-protocol.cpp.

std::string wayland::server::resource_t::get_class () [inherited]

Retrieve the interface name (class) of a resource object.

Returns

Interface name of the resource object.

client_t wayland::server::resource_t::get_client () const [inherited]

Get the associated client

Returns

the client that owns the resource.

uint32_t wayland::server::resource_t::get_id () const [inherited]

Get the internal ID of the resource

Returns

the internal ID of the resource

unsigned int wayland::server::resource_t::get_version () const [inherited]

Get interface version

Returns

Interface version this resource has been constructed with.

void touch_t::motion (uint32_t time, int32_t id, double x, double y, bool post = true)

update of touch point coordinates

Parameters

time timestamp with millisecond granularity
id the unique ID of this touch point
x surface-local x coordinate
y surface-local y coordinate

A touch point has changed coordinates.

Definition at line 2876 of file wayland-server-protocol.cpp.

std::function< void()> & touch_t::on_release ()

release the touch object

Definition at line 2860 of file wayland-server-protocol.cpp.

void touch_t::orientation (int32_t id, double orientation, bool post = true)

update orientation of touch point

Parameters

id the unique ID of this touch point
orientation angle between major axis and positive surface y-axis in degrees

Sent when a touchpoint has changed its orientation.

This event does not occur on its own. It is sent before a wl_touch.frame event and carries the new shape information for any previously reported, or new touch points of that frame.

Other events describing the touch point such as wl_touch.down, wl_touch.motion or wl_touch.shape may be sent within the same wl_touch.frame. A client should treat these events as a single logical touch point update. The order of wl_touch.shape, wl_touch.orientation and wl_touch.motion is not guaranteed. A wl_touch.down event is guaranteed to occur before the first wl_touch.orientation event for this touch ID but both events may occur within the same wl_touch.frame.

The orientation describes the clockwise angle of a touchpoint's major axis to the positive surface y-axis and is normalized to the -180 to +180 degree range. The granularity of orientation depends on the touch device, some devices only support binary rotation values between 0 and 90 degrees.

This event is only sent by the compositor if the touch device supports orientation reports.

Definition at line 2901 of file wayland-server-protocol.cpp.

void wayland::server::resource_t::post_no_memory () const [inherited]

Post 'not enough memory' error to the client

If the compositor has not enough memory to fulfill a certail request of the client, this function can be called to notify the client of this circumstance.

bool wayland::server::resource_t::proxy_has_object () const [inherited]

Check whether this wrapper actually wraps an object.

Returns

true if there is an underlying object, false if this wrapper is empty

void touch_t::shape (int32_t id, double major, double minor, bool post = true)

update shape of touch point

Parameters

id the unique ID of this touch point
major length of the major axis in surface-local coordinates
minor length of the minor axis in surface-local coordinates

Sent when a touchpoint has changed its shape.

This event does not occur on its own. It is sent before a wl_touch.frame event and carries the new shape information for any previously reported, or new touch points of that frame.

Other events describing the touch point such as wl_touch.down, wl_touch.motion or wl_touch.orientation may be sent within the same wl_touch.frame. A client should treat these events as a single logical touch point update. The order of wl_touch.shape, wl_touch.orientation and wl_touch.motion is not guaranteed. A wl_touch.down event is guaranteed to occur before the first wl_touch.shape event for this touch ID but both events may occur within the same wl_touch.frame.

A touchpoint shape is approximated by an ellipse through the major and minor axis length. The major axis length describes the longer diameter of the ellipse, while the minor axis length describes the shorter diameter. Major and minor are orthogonal and both are specified in surface-local coordinates. The center of the ellipse is always at the touchpoint location as reported by wl_touch.down or wl_touch.move.

This event is only sent by the compositor if the touch device supports shape reports. The client has to make reasonable assumptions about the shape if it did not receive this event.

Definition at line 2891 of file wayland-server-protocol.cpp.

void touch_t::up (uint32_t serial, uint32_t time, int32_t id, bool post = true)

end of a touch event sequence

Parameters

serial serial number of the touch up event
time timestamp with millisecond granularity
id the unique ID of this touch point

The touch point has disappeared. No further events will be sent for this touch point and the touch point's ID is released and may be reused in a future touch down event.
