RepeatButton

A RepeatButton is similar to a regular Button, but it will 'repeat' if pressed for a long period of time. The RepeatButton differs from a regular Button with regards to activation. A Button is activated when the button is released, whereas a RepeatButton is activated immediately when pressed and then at regular intervals. A RepeatButton does not activate when released.

As for other well-known repeat buttons, the interval from the first activation until the second activation as well as the subsequent interval between activations can be set for the RepeatButton.

The default values for initial delay is 10 ticks, and the default value for the following delays between button activations is 5 ticks.

Public Functions Documentation#

getDelay#

virtual int getDelay()

Gets the delay in ticks from first button activation until next activation.

Returns:

The delay, measured in ticks, between first activation and second activation.

See also:

getInterval#

virtual int getInterval()

The interval between repeated activations, measured in ticks.

This is the number of ticks between the an activation beyond the first and the following activation.

Returns:

The interval between repeated activations, measured in ticks.

See also:

handleClickEvent#

virtual void handleClickEvent(const ClickEvent &event)

Updates the current state of the button.

The state can be either pressed or released, and if the new state is different from the current state, the button is also invalidated to force a redraw.

If the button state is changed from ClickEvent::PRESSED to ClickEvent::RELEASED, the associated action (if any) is also executed.

Parameters:
eventInformation about the click.

Reimplements: touchgfx::AbstractButton::handleClickEvent

handleTickEvent#

virtual void handleTickEvent()

Called periodically by the framework if the Drawable instance has subscribed to timer ticks.

See also:

Reimplements: touchgfx::Drawable::handleTickEvent

RepeatButton#

setDelay#

virtual void setDelay(intdelay)

Sets the delay (in number of ticks) from the first button activation until the next time it will be automatically activated.

Parameters:
delayThe delay, measured in ticks, between first activation and second activation.
See also:

setInterval#

virtual void setInterval(intinterval)

Sets the interval in number of ticks between each each activation of the pressed button after the second activation.

Parameters:
intervalThe interval between repeated activations, measured in ticks.
