Qml flickable disable scroll inertia

  • I want to make a flickable-listview to be only scrollable via the mouse wheel or up/down buttons on the scrollbar. I would also like to disable the scroll momentum/inertia that the flickable has so it behaves properly when scrolling in big lists with the scroll wheel and doesn't feel like a touch device.

  • Hi!


    import QtQuick 2.7
    import QtQuick.Controls 2.0
    Rectangle {
        id: myListView
        clip: true
        focus: true
        property var model: null
        property int moveSpeed: 300
        function moveContent(up) {
            listView.flick(0,  up ? moveSpeed : -moveSpeed  )
        ListView {
            id: listView
            anchors.fill: parent
            model: myListView.model
            delegate: Text {
                text: number + ": " + name
            boundsBehavior: Flickable.StopAtBounds
        MouseArea {
            anchors.fill: parent
            onWheel: myListView.moveContent( wheel.angleDelta.y>0 )
        Keys.onPressed: {
            if (event.key === Qt.Key_Up) {
                event.accepted = true
            } else if (event.key === Qt.Key_Down) {
                event.accepted = true
            } else {
                event.accepted = false


    import QtQuick 2.7
    import QtQuick.Controls 2.0
    ApplicationWindow {
        visible: true
        width: 640
        height: 480
        title: qsTr("Hello World")
        ListModel {
            id: myModel
            Component.onCompleted: {
                for (var i=0; i<50; ++i)
                    append({"number": i, "name":"Pizza"})
        MyListView {
            model: myModel
            color: "orange"
            anchors.fill: parent

  • It doesn't work as expected, at first is too slow, but when making the move speed around 1200 it still has inertia, not as much but still annoying. Is there any trick to always get the pixelDelta?

  • First you should set the property interactive to false (true by default).
    Then you will have to force the flickable to move (when pressing a button, or when moving the mouse wheel event, for example) by incrementing/decrementing the contentX / contentY properties.
    Hope it helps.
