I’m using Godot 3.2.1.
I have a scene like this:
I set the mouse_filter for the buttons and the grid to pass and ignore respectively, and I can scroll via touch on Android.
I can still click the buttons, but if I move my finger like 1 pixel away, it starts scrolling and stops the buttonpress. This makes interacting possible but annoying.
I got the idea (changing mouse_filter) from https://github.com/godotengine/godot/issues/21137
I’m using the default emulate mouse from touch.
Do you have any idea what I can do to make the button pressed until I move my finger like 10 pixels away?
Should I try to manipulate with the button’s _gui_input()?
To answer my own question (for the people who read it later), I added a little script to the buttons to check manually (I have emulate mouse from touch enabled).
var pressdown_position = Vector2()
var press_threshold = 20
if event is InputEventMouseButton and not disabled: #with InputEventTouch it didn't want to work well
pressdown_position = event.position
elif event.position.distance_to(pressdown_position) <= press_threshold:
_on_button_pressed() #call the function you want the buttonpress to call
For people who have come upon this post looking for a solution like me, I’m not sure if this was possible when the question was first asked,
but in Godot 3.5 and 4.0, ScrollContainers have a scroll deadzone property, which does pretty much this: it only considers the input a scroll once you move a certain amount. Otherwise you can press the button beneath it while within the deadzone.
If you don’t want to set it separately for each ScrollContainer, you can also set a default value in the project settings here: gui/common/default_scroll_deadzone
