How to move an object in a specified path...

  • Hi..

    how can i move an object(may be a dotted point) on a line.

    I have seen the colliding mice example,but could not understand the code.

    Suppose i have

    QLine *line= new QLine(p1,p2); //where p1 and p2 are QPoint objects.

    Now is there any way to move my object on that line?..If yes how?

    Thanking you in advance...

  • There are couple of examples available which does similar type animation, have you tried having look of those? at least two I remember "Easing Curve" and "path stroking" Hope this should give you enough insight how to do it.

  • You have to use QPropertyAnimation class somehow like this snippet:

    @ QPropertyAnimation *animation = new QPropertyAnimation(yourObject, "geometry");
    animation->setStartValue(QRect(p1.x, p1.y, w, h));
    animation->setEndValue(QRect(p2.x, p2.y, w, h));


    where p1 and p2 is your points and w and h are the width and the height of the object you plan to move.
