Making a Control Moveable
Here we demonstrate the moveable controls capability of Qcodo, also known as
"Drag and Drop".
are capable of being moved. However, only QLabel
controls are capable of being "move handles". A "move handle" is anything that you can click
which can begin execution of a move. For example, in a standard GUI (e.g. Windows
or the Mac OS), you cannot just click anywhere on a window to make the window move. You
can only click on a window's Title Bar
to get that window to move. So while
the window, itself, is a moveable object, the window's Title Bar
is the "move
handle". And in this case, the "move handle" is targetted to move itself as well as the
window it is connected to.
controls have an AddControlToMove
on it, which takes in a QControl
as a parameter. Making this call will cause your
to become a "move handle". And the QControl
in will be added as a control that will be moved by it.
In this example, we define a simple QPanel
, and we add itself as a moveable control so
that you can click on the panel and move it around.
