This is an announcement of a project I shared on github: testQtGesture
Its an easy to change program for testing gestures on Qt, which is cross platform. It is a reduced app harnessed to log many events related to gestures.
Gestural GUI’s are horribly complex to implement. Some of the many factors:
- platform OS
- devices and device drivers
- your app’s widget tree
- your app’s interpretation for gestures
Its much simpler if you stick to one platform, maintained and documented by one company e.g. iOS. But Qt is cross-platform, including desktops, iOS, and Android. Qt gestures are not well documented. I use testQtGesture to explore gestures across platforms.
