Efl.Input.Event (mixin)


Represents a generic event data.

Most Efl Events do not carry Efl Objects, rather simple data structures. This class is intended to carry more complex event data, such as pointer events.

Since 1.19


Efl.Interface (interface)

Full hierarchy


device (get, set)

Input device that originated this event.
Efl_Input_Device *efl_input_device_get(const Eo *obj);
void efl_input_device_set(Eo *obj, Efl_Input_Device *dev);

event_flags (get, set)

Extra flags for this event, may be changed by the user.
Efl_Input_Flags efl_input_event_flags_get(const Eo *obj);
void efl_input_event_flags_set(Eo *obj, Efl_Input_Flags flags);

fake (get)

true if the event was fake, not triggered by real hardware.
Eina_Bool efl_input_fake_get(const Eo *obj);

processed (get, set)

true if Efl.Input.Event.event_flags indicates the event is on hold.
Eina_Bool efl_input_processed_get(const Eo *obj);
void efl_input_processed_set(Eo *obj, Eina_Bool val);

provider_find [Overridden from Efl.Object]

Searches upwards in the object tree for a provider which knows the given class/interface.
Efl_Object *efl_provider_find(const Eo *obj, const Efl_Object *klass);


Resets the internal data to 0 or default values.
void efl_input_reset(Eo *obj);

scrolling (get, set)

true if Efl.Input.Event.event_flags indicates the event happened while scrolling.
Eina_Bool efl_input_scrolling_get(const Eo *obj);
void efl_input_scrolling_set(Eo *obj, Eina_Bool val);

timestamp (get, set)

The time at which an event was generated.
double efl_input_timestamp_get(const Eo *obj);
void efl_input_timestamp_set(Eo *obj, double ms);


duplicate Creates a carbon copy of this object and returns it.
allow_parent_unref (get, set) Allow an object to be deleted by unref even if it has a parent.
children_iterator_new Get an iterator on all childrens
comment (get, set) A human readable comment for the object
composite_attach Make an object a composite object of another.
composite_detach Detach a composite object from another object.
composite_part_is Check if an object is part of a composite object.
constructor Call the object's constructor.
debug_name_override Build a read-only name for this object used for debugging.
del Unrefs the object and reparents it to NULL.
destructor Call the object's destructor.
event_callback_forwarder_add Add an event callback forwarder for an event and an object.
event_callback_forwarder_del Remove an event callback forwarder for an event and an object.
event_callback_stop Stop the current callback call.
event_freeze Freeze events of object.
event_freeze_count (get) Return freeze events of object.
class event_global_freeze Freeze events of object.
class event_global_freeze_count (get) Return freeze events of object.
class event_global_thaw Thaw events of object.
event_thaw Thaw events of object.
finalize Called at the end of efl_add. Should not be called, just overridden.
finalized (get) True if the object is already finalized, otherwise false.
name (get, set) The name of the object.
name_find Find a child object with the given name and return it.
parent (get, set) The parent of an object.



callback,add A callback was added.
callback,del A callback was deleted.
del Object is being deleted.
destruct Object has been fully destroyed. It can not be used beyond this point. This event should only serve to clean up any dangling pointer.
