Description

The QStyle class specifies the look and feel of a GUI.

A large number of GUI elements are common to many widgets. The QStyle class allows the look of these elements to be modified across all widgets that use the QStyle functions. It also provides two feel options: Motif and Windows.

Although it is not possible to fully enumerate the look of graphical elements and the feel of widgets in a GUI, QStyle provides a considerable amount of control and customisability.

In Qt 1.x the look and feel option for widgets was specified by a single value: the GUIStyle. Starting with Qt 2.0, this notion was expanded to allow the look to be specified by virtual drawing functions.

Derived classes may reimplement some or all of the drawing functions to modify the look of all widgets that use those functions.

Languages written from right to left (such as Arabic and Hebrew) usually also mirror the whole layout of widgets. If you design a style, you should take special care when drawing asymmetric elements to make sure that they also look correct in a mirrored layout. You can start your application with -reverse to check the mirrored layout. Also notice, that for a reversed layout, the light usually comes from top right instead of top left.

The actual reverse layout is performed automatically when possible. However, for the sake of flexibility, the translation cannot be performed everywhere. The documentation for each function in the QStyle API states whether the function expects/returns logical or screen coordinates. Using logical coordinates (in ComplexControls, for example) provides great flexibility in controlling the look of a widget. Use visualRect() when necessary to translate logical coordinates into screen coordinates for drawing.

In Qt versions prior to 3.0, if you wanted a low level route into changing the appearance of a widget, you would reimplement polish(). With the new 3.0 style engine the recommended approach is to reimplement the draw functions, for example drawItem(), drawPrimitive(), drawControl(), drawControlMask(), drawComplexControl() and drawComplexControlMask(). Each of these functions is called with a range of parameters that provide information that you can use to determine how to draw them, e.g. style flags, rectangle, color group, etc.

For information on changing elements of an existing style or creating your own style see the Style overview.

Styles can also be created as plugins.

void QStyle::drawControlMask ( ControlElement element, QPainter * p, const QWidget * widget, const QRect & r, const QStyleOption & opt = QStyleOption::Default ) const [pure virtual]

Draw a bitmask for the ControlElement element using the painter p in the area r. See drawControl() for an explanation of the use of the widget and opt arguments.

The rect r should be in screen coordinates.

See also drawControl() and ControlElement.

void QStyle::drawItem ( QPainter * p, const QRect & r, int flags, const QColorGroup & g, bool enabled, const QPixmap * pixmap, const QString & text, int len = -1, const QColor * penColor = 0 ) const [virtual]

Draws the text or pixmap in rectangle r using painter p and color group g. The pen color is specified with penColor. The enabled bool indicates whether or not the item is enabled; when reimplementing this bool should influence how the item is drawn. If len is -1 (the default) all the text is drawn; otherwise only the first len characters of text are drawn. The text is aligned and wrapped according to the alignment flags (see Qt::AlignmentFlags).

By default, if both the text and the pixmap are not null, the pixmap is drawn and the text is ignored.

void QStyle::drawPrimitive ( PrimitiveElement pe, QPainter * p, const QRect & r, const QColorGroup & cg, SFlags flags = Style_Default, const QStyleOption & opt = QStyleOption::Default ) const [pure virtual]

Draws the style PrimitiveElement pe using the painter p in the area r. Colors are used from the color group cg.

The rect r should be in screen coordinates.

The flags argument is used to control how the PrimitiveElement is drawn. Multiple flags can be OR'ed together.

For example, a pressed button would be drawn with the flags Style_Enabled and Style_Down.

The opt argument can be used to control how various PrimitiveElements are drawn. Note that opt may be the default value even for PrimitiveElements that make use of extra options. When opt is non-default, it is used as follows:

<center>.nf </center>

For all other PrimitiveElements, opt is unused.

See also StyleFlags.

Example: themes/wood.cpp.

QRect QStyle::itemRect ( QPainter * p, const QRect & r, int flags, bool enabled, const QPixmap * pixmap, const QString & text, int len = -1 ) const [virtual]

Returns the appropriate area (see below) within rectangle r in which to draw the text or pixmap using painter p. If len is -1 (the default) all the text is drawn; otherwise only the first len characters of text are drawn. The text is aligned in accordance with the alignment flags (see Qt::AlignmentFlags). The enabled bool indicates whether or not the item is enabled.

If r is larger than the area needed to render the text the rectangle that is returned will be offset within r in accordance with the alignment flags. For example if flags is AlignCenter the returned rectangle will be centered within r. If r is smaller than the area needed the rectangle that is returned will be larger than r (the smallest rectangle large enough to render the text or pixmap).

By default, if both the text and the pixmap are not null, the pixmap is drawn and the text is ignored.

int QStyle::pixelMetric ( PixelMetric metric, const QWidget * widget = 0 ) const [pure virtual]

Returns the pixel metric for metric. The widget argument is a pointer to a QWidget or one of its subclasses. The widget can be cast to the appropriate type based on the value of metric. Note that widget may be zero even for PixelMetrics that can make use of widget. See the table below for the appropriate widget casts:

<center>.nf

void QStyle::polish ( QWidget * ) [virtual]

Initializes the appearance of a widget.

This function is called for every widget at some point after it has been fully created but just before it is shown the very first time.

Reasonable actions in this function might be to call QWidget::setBackgroundMode() for the widget. An example of highly unreasonable use would be setting the geometry! Reimplementing this function gives you a back-door through which you can change the appearance of a widget. With Qt 3.0's style engine you will rarely need to write your own polish(); instead reimplement drawItem(), drawPrimitive(), etc.

The QWidget::inherits() function may provide enough information to allow class-specific customizations. But be careful not to hard-code things too much because new QStyle subclasses are expected to work reasonably with all current and future widgets.

See also unPolish().

void QStyle::polish ( QApplication * ) [virtual]

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially like the above function.

Late initialization of the QApplication object.

See also unPolish().

void QStyle::polish ( QPalette & ) [virtual]

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially like the above function.

The style may have certain requirements for color palettes. In this function it has the chance to change the palette according to these requirements.

See also QPalette and QApplication::setPalette().

void QStyle::polishPopupMenu ( QPopupMenu * ) [pure virtual]

Polishes the popup menu according to the GUI style. This usually means setting the mouse tracking (QPopupMenu::setMouseTracking()) and whether the menu is checkable by default (QPopupMenu::setCheckable()).

SubControl QStyle::querySubControl ( ComplexControl control, const QWidget * widget, const QPoint & pos, const QStyleOption & opt = QStyleOption::Default ) const [pure virtual]

Returns the SubControl for widget at the point pos. The widget argument is a pointer to a QWidget or one of its subclasses. The widget can be cast to the appropriate type based on the value of control. The opt argument can be used to pass extra information required when drawing the ComplexControl. Note that opt may be the default value even for ComplexControls that can make use of the extra options. See drawComplexControl() for an explanation of the widget and opt arguments.

Note that pos is passed in screen coordinates. When using querySubControlMetrics() to check for hits and misses, use visualRect() to change the logical coordinates into screen coordinates.

See also drawComplexControl(), ComplexControl, SubControl, and querySubControlMetrics().

QRect QStyle::querySubControlMetrics ( ComplexControl control, const QWidget * widget, SubControl subcontrol, const QStyleOption & opt = QStyleOption::Default ) const [pure virtual]

Returns the rect for the SubControl subcontrol for widget in logical coordinates.

The widget argument is a pointer to a QWidget or one of its subclasses. The widget can be cast to the appropriate type based on the value of control. The opt argument can be used to pass extra information required when drawing the ComplexControl. Note that opt may be the default value even for ComplexControls that can make use of the extra options. See drawComplexControl() for an explanation of the widget and opt arguments.

See also drawComplexControl(), ComplexControl, and SubControl.

The widget argument is a pointer to a QWidget or one of its subclasses. The widget can be cast to the appropriate type based on the value of contents. The opt argument can be used to pass extra information required when calculating the size. Note that opt may be the default value even for ContentsTypes that can make use of the extra options. See the table below for the appropriate widget and opt usage:

<center>.nf

int QStyle::styleHint ( StyleHint stylehint, const QWidget * widget = 0, const QStyleOption & opt = QStyleOption::Default, QStyleHintReturn * returnData = 0 ) const [pure virtual]

Returns the style hint stylehint for widget. Currently, widget, opt, and returnData are unused; they're included to allow for future enhancements.

For an explanation of the return value see StyleHint.

QPixmap QStyle::stylePixmap ( StylePixmap stylepixmap, const QWidget * widget = 0, const QStyleOption & opt = QStyleOption::Default ) const [pure virtual]
