Gesture with mouse event problem

  • Hello,

    I'm using Qt 5.3 on Android.
    Problem is that mouseReleaseEvent is not generated for my QGraphicsItem when I'm using two fingers. I can replicate this with such a behaviour: Touch one finger, start swipe, touch second finger (Pinch is started), remove first finger first and then remove second - no mouseReleaseEvent on the item.
    I can see that mousePressEvent is delivered when I press first finger, no event on second finger, so I imagine that if I remove first finger first and then second - the system gets confused.
    I'm using QPinchGesture on QGraphicsView and also mousePress/Move/Release on QGraphicsScene (Can't use QPanGesture becasue it is always generated with two fingers - strange)

    Anyway I know when QPinchGesture ends


    So I could post mouseReleaseEvent to my item (it should be then forwarded to QGraphicsScene) after pinch gesture is finished, but no matter how I try It fails.
    I read that event propagation is from QGraphicsScene to the items, however in my log I can see that first items receives mouseReleaseEvent and then QGraphicsScene.
    Anyway I have tried sending to QGraphicsScene and QGraphicsItem - QApplication::sendEvent returns false If I post to QGraphicsView - result is true - but neither QGraphicsScene nor my item receives this event, generally:

    QMouseEvent event(QEvent::MouseButtonRelease,QPoint(floor->mainviewItem->boundingRect().width()/2,floor->mainviewItem->boundingRect().height()/2),Qt::LeftButton,Qt::LeftButton,Qt::NoModifier);
        bool ret=QApplication::sendEvent(floor->mainviewItem, &event);

    I cant send QGraphicsSceneMouseEvent but I read that if I post QMouseEvent to QGraphicsView it will be transformed to QGraphicsSceneMouseEvent and delivered to the scene, so

    QMouseEvent event(QEvent::MouseButtonRelease,QPoint(100,100),Qt::LeftButton,Qt::LeftButton,Qt::NoModifier);
        bool ret=QApplication::sendEvent(graphicsView, &event);

    sendEvent returns true, but I can't see the event being delivered to the scene or item.

    How to solve this issue? I would like to deliver mouseReleaseEvent to the scene after pinch is finished.

    Best Regards
