Detailed Description

The QHeader class provides a table header.

This class provides a table header as known from spreadsheet-like widgets. QHeader can be used vertically or horizontally (see setOrientation()).

With addLabel() you can add sections, and with removeLabel() you can remove them. If you enabled clicking for one or all sections (see setClickEnabled()), the user can reorder the sections and click on them which may be used for sorting (see also setSortIndicator()). This feature is turned on by default.

So, if the user reorders the sections by clicking and moving them with the mouse the index of a section may change. This means, the section you inserted at the first position might be displayed at a different index then. To get the index at which e.g the first section is displayed, use mapToIndex() with 0 as argument for our example.

If you want e.g. to know which section is displayed at e.g. index 3 use mapToSection() with 3 as argument.

So, you can always work with the section numbers as you inserted them without caring about the index at which they are displayed at the moment. Also the API of QHeader works with the section numbers.

See also QListView and QTableView.


Member Function Documentation

QHeader::QHeader ( QWidget * parent=0, const char * name=0 )

Constructs a horizontal header.

The parent and name arguments are sent to the QWidget constructor.

QHeader::QHeader ( int n, QWidget * parent=0, const char * name=0 )

Constructs a horizontal header with n sections.

The parent and name arguments are sent to the QWidget constructor.

QHeader::~QHeader ()

Destructs the header.

int QHeader::addLabel ( const QIconSet & iconset, const QString & s, int size = -1 )

Adds a new section, with icon set iconset and label text s. Returns the index. If size is non-negative, the section width is set to size, otherwise a size currently sufficient for the label is used.

int QHeader::addLabel ( const QString & s, int size = -1 )

Adds a new section, with label text s. Returns the index. If size is non-negative, the section width is set to size, otherwise a size currently sufficient for the label text is used.

int QHeader::cellAt ( int pos ) const

This function is obsolete. It is provided to keep old source working, and will probably be removed in a future version of Qt. We strongly advise against using it in new code.

In a list view, this signal would typically be connected to a slot which sorts the specified column (or row).

See also setMovingEnabled() and setResizeEnabled().

void QHeader::setLabel ( int section, const QIconSet & iconset, const QString & s, int size = -1 ) [virtual]

Sets the icon on the section section to iconset and the text to s. If the section does not exist, nothing happens. If size is non-negative, the section width is set to size.

Any icon set that has been defined for this section remains unchanged.

void QHeader::setLabel ( int section, const QString & s, int size = -1 ) [virtual]

Sets the text on section section to s. If the section does not exist, nothing happens. If size is non-negative, the section width is set to size.

Any icon set that has been defined for this section remains unchanged.

void QHeader::setMovingEnabled ( bool enable ) [virtual]

Enable the user to exchange sections if enable is TRUE, disable otherwise.

If you enable moving here, the indexChange() signal is emitted if the user moves a section.

See also setClickEnabled() and setResizeEnabled().

Scrolls the header such that x becomes the leftmost (or uppermost for vertical headers) visible pixel.

void QHeader::setOrientation ( Orientation orientation ) [virtual]

Sets the header orientation. The orientation must be QHeader::Vertical or QHeader::Horizontal.

When adding labels without the size parameter, setOrientation should be called first, otherwise labels will be sized incorrectly.

See also orientation().

void QHeader::setResizeEnabled ( bool enable, int section = -1 ) [virtual]

Enable user resizing of the section section if enable is TRUE, disable otherwise. If section is negative (as it is by default), resizing is enabled/disabled for all current and new sections.

If the user resizes a section (because this feature enabled it), a sizeChange() signal is emitted.

See also setMovingEnabled() and setClickEnabled().

void QHeader::setSortIndicator ( int section, bool increasing = TRUE )

As often the QHeader is used together with a list widget, QHeader can indicate a sort order. This is done using an arrow at the right edge of a section which points up or down. section specifies in which section this arrow should be drawn, and increasing, if the arrow should point to the bottom (TRUE) or the the top (FALSE). If section is -1, no arrow is drawn.

See also QListView::setShowSortIndicator().

void QHeader::setTracking ( bool enable ) [virtual]

Sets tracking if enable is TRUE, otherwise turns off tracking. If tracking is on, the sizeChange() signal is emitted continuously while the mouse is moved, otherwise it is only emitted when the mouse button is released.

See also tracking().
