Qt Quick Pointer Handlers

Qt Quick Pointer Handlers are a set of QML types used to handle events from touch, mouse, and stylus devices in a UI. In contrast to event-handling Items, such as MouseArea, Pointer Handlers require less memory and are intended to be used in greater numbers: one handler per type of interaction. Each Pointer Handler handles events on behalf of its parent Item. One Item can have multiple Pointer Handlers.

The module is introduced in Qt 5.10.

Getting Started

The QML types can be imported into your application using the following import statement in your .qml file.
