Detailed Description

The QWaylandWlShell extension provides a way to associate a QWaylandWlShellSurface with a regular Wayland surface. Using the shell surface interface, the client can request that the surface is resized, moved, and so on.

WlShell corresponds to the Wayland interface wl_shell.

Member Function Documentation

QWaylandWlShell::QWaylandWlShell(QWaylandCompositor *compositor)

Constructs a QWaylandWlShell object for the provided compositor.


Constructs a QWaylandWlShell object.

[signal] void QWaylandWlShell::wlShellSurfaceCreated(QWaylandWlShellSurface *shellSurface)

This signal is emitted when the client has created a wl_shell_surface. A common use case is to let the handler of this signal instantiate a QWaylandShellSurfaceItem or QWaylandQuickItem for displaying shellSurface in a QtQuick scene.

[signal] void QWaylandWlShell::wlShellSurfaceRequested(QWaylandSurface *surface, const QWaylandResource &resource)

This signal is emitted when the client has requested a wl_shell_surface to be associated with surface. The handler for this signal may create a shell surface for resource and initialize it within the scope of the signal emission. Otherwise a QWaylandWlShellSurface will be created automatically.

[override virtual] void QWaylandWlShell::initialize()

Initializes the WlShell extension.

[static] const struct wl_interface *QWaylandWlShell::interface()

Returns the Wayland interface for the QWaylandWlShell.
