List of all member functions.
A QMovie provides a QPixmap as the framePixmap(), and connections can be made via connectResize() and connectUpdate() to receive notification of size and pixmap changes. All decoding is driven by the normal event processing mechanisms. The simplest way to display a QMovie, is to use a QLabel and QLabel::setMovie().
The movie begins playing as soon as the QMovie is created (actually, once control returns to the event loop). When the last frame in the movie has been played, it may loop back to the start if such looping is defined in the input source.
QMovie objects are explicitly shared. This means that a QMovie copied from another QMovie will be displaying the same frame at all times. If one shared movie pauses, all pause. To make independent movies, they must be constructed separately.
The set of data formats supported by QMovie is determined by the decoder factories which have been installed, and the format of the input is determined as the input is decoded.
The supported formats are MNG (if Qt is built with MNG support enabled) and GIF (if Qt is built with GIF support enabled). For MNG support, you need to have installed libmng from http://www.libmng.com.
We are required to state: The Graphics Interchange Format(c) is the Copyright property of CompuServe Incorporated. GIF(sm) is a Service Mark property of CompuServe Incorporated.
Warning: Unisys has changed its position regarding GIF. If you are in a country where Unisys holds a patent on LZW compression and/or decompression and you want to use GIF, Unisys may require you to license that technology. These countries include Canada, Japan, the USA, France, Germany, Italy and the UK.
GIF support may be removed completely in a future version of Qt. We recommend using the MNG or PNG format.
See also QLabel::setMovie().
Constructs a null QMovie. The only interesting thing to do to such a movie is to assign another movie to it.
See also isNull().
Constructs a QMovie which reads an image sequence from given data.
Constructs a QMovie which reads an image sequence from the given QDataSource. The source must be allocated dynamically, as it becomes owned by the QMovie, and will be destroyed when the movie is destroyed. The movie starts playing as soon as event processing continues.
The bufsize argument sets the maximum amount of data the movie will transfer from the data source per event loop. The lower this value, the better interleaved the movie playback will be with other event processing, but the slower the overall processing.
Constructs a QMovie which reads an image sequence from the named file.
Constructs a movie that uses the same data as another movie. QMovies use explicit sharing, so operations on the copy will effect the same operations on the original.
Constructs a QMovie with an external data source. You should later call pushData() to send incoming animation data to the movie.
See also pushData().
Destroys the QMovie. If this is the last reference to the data of the movie, that will also be destroyed.
Returns the background color of the movie set by setBackgroundColor().
Connects the given member, of type
void member(const QSize&)
such that it is signalled when the movie changes size.
Note that due to the explicit sharing of QMovie objects, these connections persist until they are explicitly disconnected with disconnectResize(), or until every shared copy of the movie is deleted.
Connects the given member, of type
such that it is signalled when the movie changes status. The status code are negative for errors and positive for information, and they are currently:
QMovie::SourceEmpty- signalled if the input cannot be read.
QMovie::UnrecognizedFormat- signalled if the input data is unrecognized.
QMovie::Paused- signalled when the movie is paused by a call to paused(), or by after stepping pauses.
QMovie::EndOfFrame- signalled at end-of-frame, after any update and Paused signals.
QMovie::EndOfLoop- signalled at end-of-loop, after any update signals, EndOfFrame, but before EndOfMovie.
QMovie::EndOfMovie- signalled when the movie completes and is not about to loop.
More status messages may be added in the future, so a general test for error would test for negative.
Note that due to the explicit sharing of QMovie objects, these connections persist until they are explicitly disconnected with disconnectStatus(), or until every shared copy of the movie is deleted.
Connects the given member, of type
void member(const QRect&)
such that it is signalled when an area of the framePixmap() has changed since the previous frame.
Note that due to the explicit sharing of QMovie objects, these connections persist until they are explicitly disconnected with disconnectUpdate(), or until every shared copy of the movie is deleted.
Disconnects the given member, or all members if member is zero, previously connected by connectResize().
Disconnects the given member, or all members if member is zero, previously connected by connectStatus().
Disconnects the given member, or all members if member is zero, previously connected by connectUpdate().
Returns TRUE if the image is no longer playing - this happens when all loops of all frames is complete.
Returns the current frame of the movie, as a QImage. It is not generally useful to keep a copy of this image. Also note that you must not call this function if the movie is finished(), as the image is not them available.
See also framePixmap().
Returns the number of times EndOfFrame has been emitted since the start of the current loop of the movie. Thus, before any EndOfFrame has been emitted, the value will be 0, within slots processing the first signal, frameNumber() will be 1, and so on.
Returns the current frame of the movie, as a QPixmap. It is not generally useful to keep a copy of this pixmap. Better to keep a copy of the QMovie and get the framePixmap() only when needed for drawing.
See also frameImage().
Returns the area of the pixmap for which pixels have been generated.
Returns TRUE if the movie is null.
Makes this movie use the same data as another movie. QMovies use explicit sharing.
Pauses the progress of the animation.
See also unpause().
Returns TRUE if the image is paused.
Pushes length bytes from data into the movie. length must be no more than the amount returned by pushSpace() since the previous call to pushData().
Returns the maximum amount of data that can currently be pushed into the movie by a call to pushData(). This is affected by the initial buffer size, but varies as the movie plays and data is consumed.
Rewinds the movie to the beginning. If the movie has not been paused, it begins playing again.
Returns TRUE if the image is not single-stepping, not paused, and not finished.
Set the background color of the pixmap. If the background color isValid(), the pixmap will never have a mask, as the background color will be used in transparent regions of the image.
See also backgroundColor().
Sets the speed-up factor of the movie. This is a percentage of the speed dictated by the input data format. The default is 100 percent.
Returns the speed-up factor of the movie. The default is 100 percent.
See also setSpeed().
Steps forward 1 frame, then pauses.
Steps forward, showing the given number of frames, then pauses.
Returns the number of steps remaining after a call to step(), 0 if paused, or a negative value if the movie is running normally or is finished.
Unpauses the progress of the animation.
See also pause().
