[SOLVED] Slider Issue
I'm new to these forums but they seem like a great place to get help. I am having this issue where I'm accidentally changing the values of my sliders when I press on their grooves to slide the app window up or down. Is there any way to restrict them such that their values can only be changed by their handles?
I have tried a few things involving the activeFocusOnPress and pressed properties as well as child MouseAreas but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hi and Welcome to the Qt Forum,
You can use the "enabled":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/qml-qtquick-item.html#enabled-prop property to enable/disable the Slider.
Can you explain what you do you mean by "slide the app window up or down" ? Can you post a sample code which explains it ?
Sure, and thanks for the welcoming :)
So my app page is contained within a flickable object like this
//... the rest of the page
Within the page I have several slider objects stacked on each other like so:
My issue is that as I'm trying to navigate the page vertically, by swiping my fingers, I sometimes press on the slider grooves and thereby change change the slider values: which is what I don't want to happen. I want the sliders to only be able to change value when the handle is pressed, which is why I tried setting the enabled property to enabled: pressed. But that doesn't work. I've also tried activeFocusOnPress: pressed but that doesn't work either. And lastly I tried using a customized mouse area above my sliders but I couldn't work that out.
You can disable the Sliders when the user is "flicking":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/qml-qtquick-flickable.html#flicking-prop.
Ah. Thank you so much that's perfect!
