Class Details

class Gdk.DevicePad
Bases:GObject.GInterface
Structure:Gdk.DevicePadInterface

Gdk.DevicePad is an interface implemented by devices of type Gdk.InputSource.TABLET_PAD, it allows querying the features provided by the pad device.

Tablet pads may contain one or more groups, each containing a subset of the buttons/rings/strips available. Gdk.DevicePad.get_n_groups() can be used to obtain the number of groups, Gdk.DevicePad.get_n_features() and Gdk.DevicePad.get_feature_group() can be combined to find out the number of buttons/rings/strips the device has, and how are they grouped.

Each of those groups have different modes, which may be used to map each individual pad feature to multiple actions. Only one mode is effective (current) for each given group, different groups may have different current modes. The number of available modes in a group can be found out through Gdk.DevicePad.get_group_n_modes(), and the current mode for a given group will be notified through the Gdk.EventPadGroupMode event.

get_feature_group(feature, feature_idx)[source]
Parameters:
  • feature (Gdk.DevicePadFeature) – the feature type to get the group from
  • feature_idx (int) – the index of the feature to get the group from
Returns:

The group number of the queried pad feature.

Return type:

int

Returns the group the given feature and idx belong to, or -1 if feature/index do not exist in self.

New in version 3.22.

get_group_n_modes(group_idx)[source]
Parameters:group_idx (int) – group to get the number of available modes from
Returns:The number of modes available in group.
Return type:int

Returns the number of modes that group may have.

New in version 3.22.

get_n_features(feature)[source]
Parameters:feature (Gdk.DevicePadFeature) – a pad feature
Returns:The amount of elements of type feature that this pad has.
Return type:int

Returns the number of features a tablet pad has.

New in version 3.22.

get_n_groups()[source]
Returns:The number of button/ring/strip groups in the pad.
Return type:int

Returns the number of groups this pad device has. Pads have at least one group. A pad group is a subcollection of buttons/strip/rings that is affected collectively by a same current mode.

New in version 3.22.
