Member Function Documentation

const QColor & QPainter::backgroundColor() const

Use background() and QBrush::color() instead.

For example, if you have code like

QColor myColor = backgroundColor();

you can rewrite it as

QColor myColor = background().color();

Note that the background can be a complex brush such as a texture or a gradient.

See also setBackgroundColor().

bool QPainter::begin(QPaintDevice * device, const QWidget * init)

Use begin() instead.

If the paint device is a QWidget, QPainter is initialized after the widget's settings automatically. Otherwise, you must call the initFrom() function to initialize the painters pen, background and font to the same as any given widget.

For example, if you have code like

QPainter painter(this);
painter.begin(device, init);

you can rewrite it as

QPainter painter(this);
painter.begin(device);
painter.initFrom(init);

QRect QPainter::boundingRect(const QRect & rectangle, int flags, const QString & text, int length)

Returns the bounding rectangle for the given length of the text constrained by the provided rectangle.

Use boundingRect() combined with QString::left() instead.

For example, if you have code like

QRect rectangle = boundingRect(rect, flags, text, length);

you can rewrite it as

QRect rectangle = boundingRect(rect, flags, text.left(length));

QRect QPainter::boundingRect(int x, int y, int width, int height, int flags, const QString & text, int length)

Returns the bounding rectangle for the given length of the text constrained by the rectangle that begins at point (x, y) with the given width and height.

Use boundingRect() combined with QString::left() instead.

For example, if you have code like

QRect rectangle = boundingRect(x, y, width, height, flags, text, length);

you can rewrite it as

QRect rectangle = boundingRect(x, y, width, height, flags, text.left(length));

void QPainter::drawConvexPolygon(const QPolygonF & polygon, int index, int count = -1)

This is an overloaded function.

Use drawConvexPolygon() combined with QPolygonF::constData() instead.

For example, if you have code like

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawConvexPolygon(polygon, index, count);

you can rewrite it as

int pointCount = (count == -1) ?  polygon.size() - index : count;

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawConvexPolygon(polygon.constData() + index, pointCount);

void QPainter::drawConvexPolygon(const QPolygon & polygon, int index, int count = -1)

This is an overloaded function.

Use drawConvexPolygon() combined with QPolygon::constData() instead.

For example, if you have code like

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawConvexPolygon(polygon, index, count);

you can rewrite it as

int pointCount = (count == -1) ?  polygon.size() - index : count;

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawConvexPolygon(polygon.constData() + index, pointCount);

void QPainter::drawCubicBezier(const QPolygon & controlPoints, int index = 0)

Draws a cubic Bezier curve defined by the controlPoints, starting at controlPoints[index] (index defaults to 0). Points after controlPoints[index + 3] are ignored. Nothing happens if there aren't enough control points.

Use strokePath() instead.

For example, if you have code like

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawCubicBezier(controlPoints, index)

you can rewrite it as

QPainterPath path;
path.moveTo(controlPoints.at(index));
path.cubicTo(controlPoints.at(index+1),
                    controlPoints.at(index+2),
                    controlPoints.at(index+3));

QPainter painter(this);
painter.strokePath(path, painter.pen());

void QPainter::drawLineSegments(const QPolygon & polygon, int index = 0, int count = -1)

Draws count separate lines from points defined by the polygon, starting at polygon[index] (index defaults to 0). If count is -1 (the default) all points until the end of the array are used.

Use drawLines() combined with QPolygon::constData() instead.

For example, if you have code like

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawLineSegments(polygon, index, count);

you can rewrite it as

int lineCount = (count == -1) ?  (polygon.size() - index) / 2  : count;

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawLines(polygon.constData() + index * 2, lineCount);

void QPainter::drawPoints(const QPolygon & polygon, int index, int count = -1)

This is an overloaded function.

Draws count points in the vector polygon starting on index using the current pen.

Use drawPoints() combined with QPolygon::constData() instead.

For example, if you have code like

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawPoints(polygon, index, count);

you can rewrite it as

int pointCount = (count == -1) ?  polygon.size() - index : count;

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawPoints(polygon.constData() + index, pointCount);

void QPainter::drawPolygon(const QPolygonF & polygon, bool winding, int index = 0, int count = -1)

This is an overloaded function.

Use drawPolygon() combined with QPolygonF::constData() instead.

For example, if you have code like

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawPolygon(polygon, winding, index, count);

you can rewrite it as

int pointCount = (count == -1) ?  polygon.size() - index : count;
int fillRule = winding ? Qt::WindingFill : Qt::OddEvenFill;

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawPolygon( polygon.constData() + index, pointCount, fillRule);

void QPainter::drawPolygon(const QPolygon & polygon, bool winding, int index = 0, int count = -1)

This is an overloaded function.

Use drawPolygon() combined with QPolygon::constData() instead.

For example, if you have code like

QPainter painter(this);
painter.drawPolygon(polygon, winding, index, count);

you can rewrite it as

int pointCount = (count == -1) ?  polygon.size() - index : count;
int fillRule = winding ? Qt::WindingFill : Qt::OddEvenFill;
