Inherits from



An object of type GraphicsViewPolylineInput creates a list of points.

A new vertex is inserted every time the left mouse button is pressed. The list of points is emitted on a right click or when the number of points specified in the constructor is reached. You can use the 'Del' or 'Backspace' key if you want to remove your last entered point in the polygon, and the 'Esc' key if you want to remove all points.

The tool can serve at the same time for entering a single point, a polyline with a given number of points, and for open as well as closed polylines.

For polylines the segment between the last entered point and the current mouse position is only drawn correctly when mouse tracking is enabled in the graphics view. The same holds for closed polygons.
