Detailed Description

The QScrollView widget provides a scrolling area with on-demand scrollbars.

The QScrollView is a large canvas - potentially larger than the coordinate system normally supported by the underlying window system. This is important, as is is quite easy to go beyond such limitations (eg. many web pages are more than 32000 pixels high). Additionally, the QScrollView can have QWidgets positioned on it that scroll around with the drawn content. These subwidgets can also have positions outside the normal coordinate range (but they are still limited in size).

To provide content for the widget, inherit from QScrollView and reimplement drawContents(), and use resizeContents() to set the size of the viewed area. Use addChild() / moveChild() to position widgets on the view.

To use QScrollView effectively, it is important to understand its widget structure in the three styles of usage: a single large child widget, a large panning area with some widgets, a large panning area with many widgets.

One Big Widget

The first, simplest usage of QScrollView depicted above is appropriate for scrolling areas which are never more than about 4000 pixels in either dimension (this is about the maximum reliable size on X11 servers). In this usage, you just make one large child in the QScrollView. The child should be a child of the viewport() of the scrollview, and be added with addChild():

    QScrollView* sv = new QScrollView(...);
    QVBox* big_box = new QVBox(sv->viewport());
    sv->addChild(big_box);

You may go on to add arbitrary child widgets to the single child in the scrollview, as you would with any widget:

    QLabel* child1 = new QLabel("CHILD", big_box);
    QLabel* child2 = new QLabel("CHILD", big_box);
    QLabel* child3 = new QLabel("CHILD", big_box);
    ...

Here, the QScrollView has 4 children - the viewport(), the verticalScrollBar(), the horizontalScrollBar(), and a small cornerWidget(). The viewport() has 1 child, the big QVBox. The QVBox has the three labels as child widgets. When the view is scrolled, the QVBox is moved, and its children move with it as child widgets normally do.

Very Big View, some Widgets

The second usage of QScrollView depicted above is appropriate when few, if any, widgets are on a very large scrolling area that is potentially larger than 4000 pixels in either dimension. In this usage, you call resizeContents() to set the size of the area, and reimplement drawContents() to paint the contents. You may also add some widgets, by making them children of the viewport() and adding them with addChild() (this is the same as the process for the single large widget in the previous example):

    QScrollView* sv = new QScrollView(...);
    QLabel* child1 = new QLabel("CHILD", sv->viewport());
    sv->addChild(child1);
    QLabel* child2 = new QLabel("CHILD", sv->viewport());
    sv->addChild(child2);
    QLabel* child3 = new QLabel("CHILD", sv->viewport());
    sv->addChild(child3);

Here, the QScrollView has the same 4 children - the viewport(), the verticalScrollBar(), the horizontalScrollBar(), and a small cornerWidget(). The viewport() has the three labels as child widgets. When the view is scrolled, the scrollview moves the child widgets individually.

Very Big View, many Widgets

The final usage of QScrollView depicted above is appropriate when many widgets are on a very large scrolling area that is potentially larger than 4000 pixels in either dimension. In this usage, you call resizeContents() to set the size of the area, and reimplement drawContents() to paint the contents. You then call enableClipper(TRUE) and add widgets, again by making them children of the viewport() and adding them with addChild():

    QScrollView* sv = new QScrollView(...);
    sv->enableClipper(TRUE);
    QLabel* child1 = new QLabel("CHILD", sv->viewport());
    sv->addChild(child1);
    QLabel* child2 = new QLabel("CHILD", sv->viewport());
    sv->addChild(child2);
    QLabel* child3 = new QLabel("CHILD", sv->viewport());
    sv->addChild(child3);

Here, the QScrollView has 4 children - the clipper() (not the viewport() this time), the verticalScrollBar(), the horizontalScrollBar(), and a small cornerWidget(). The clipper() has 1 child - the viewport(). The viewport() has the three labels as child widgets. When the view is scrolled, the viewport() is moved, and its children move with it as child widgets normally do.

Normally you will use the first or third method if you want any child widgets in the view.

Note that the widget you see in the scrolled area is the viewport() widget, not the QScrollView itself. So, to turn mouse tracking on for example, use viewport()->setMouseTracking(TRUE).

To enable drag-and-drop, you would setAcceptDrops(TRUE) on the QScrollView (since drag-and-drop events propagate to the parent), but to work out what logical position in the view, you would need to map the drop co-ordinate from being relative to the QScrollView to being relative to the contents - use the function viewportToContents() for this.

To handle mouse events on the scrolling area, subclass scrollview as you would subclass other widgets, but rather than overriding mousePressEvent(), reimplement viewportMousePressEvent() instead (if you reimplement mousePressEvent() you'll only get called when part of the QScrollView is clicked - and the only such part is the "corner" (if you don't set a cornerWidget()) and the frame, everything else being covered up by the viewport, clipper, or scrollbars.

When you construct a QScrollView, some of the widget flags apply to the viewport(), instead of being sent to the QWidget constructor for the QScrollView. This applies to WResizeNoErase, WNorthWestGravity, WRepaintNoErase and WPaintClever. See Qt::WidgetFlags for documentation about these flags. Here are some examples:

Warning: WResizeNoErase is currently set by default, i.e. you always have to clear the background manually in scrollview subclasses. This will change in a future version of Qt, and we recommend specifying the flag explicitly.

Examples: scrollview/scrollview.cpp


Member Type Documentation

QScrollView::ResizePolicy

This enum type is used to control QScrollView's reaction to resize events. There are four possible settings:

QScrollView::ScrollBarMode

This enum type describes the various modes of QScrollView's scroll bars. The defined modes are:

(The modes for the horizontal and vertical scroll bars are independent.).

Examples: scrollview/scrollview.cpp


Member Function Documentation

QScrollView::QScrollView ( QWidget * parent=0, const char * name=0, WFlags f=0 )

Constructs a QScrollView with a parent, a name and widget flags f.

The widget flags WNorthWestGravity, WRepaintNoErase and WPaintClever are propagated to the viewport() widget. The other widget flags are propagated to the parent constructor as usual.

QScrollView::~QScrollView ()

Destructs the QScrollView. Any children added with addChild() will be destructed.

void QScrollView::addChild ( QWidget * child, int x=0, int y=0 ) [virtual]

Inserts child into the scrolled area positioned at (x, y). The position defaults to (0,0). If the child is already in the view, it is just moved.

You may want to call enableClipper(TRUE) if you add a large number of widgets.

Examples: scrollview/scrollview.cpp

int QScrollView::bottomMargin () const [protected]

Returns the current bottom margin.

See also setMargins().

void QScrollView::center ( int x, int y ) [slot]

Scrolls the content so that the point (x,y) is in the center of visible area.

void QScrollView::center ( int x, int y, float xmargin, float ymargin ) [slot]

Scrolls the content so that the point (x,y) is visible, with the given margins (as fractions of visible area).

eg.

bool QScrollView::childIsVisible ( QWidget * child )

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.

Returns TRUE if child is visible. This is equivalent to child->isVisible().

int QScrollView::childX ( QWidget * child )

Returns the X position of the given child widget. Use this rather than QWidget::x() for widgets added to the view.

int QScrollView::childY ( QWidget * child )

Returns the Y position of the given child widget. Use this rather than QWidget::y() for widgets added to the view.

QWidgetQScrollView::clipper () const

Returns the clipper widget. Contents in the scrollview is ultimately clipped to be inside the clipper widget.

You should not need to access this.

See also visibleWidth() and visibleHeight().

void QScrollView::contentsDragEnterEvent ( QDragEnterEvent * ) [virtual protected]

This event handler is called whenever the QScrollView receives a dragEnterEvent() - the drag position is translated to be a point on the contents.

void QScrollView::contentsDragLeaveEvent ( QDragLeaveEvent * ) [virtual protected]

This event handler is called whenever the QScrollView receives a dragLeaveEvent() - the drag position is translated to be a point on the contents.

void QScrollView::contentsDragMoveEvent ( QDragMoveEvent * ) [virtual protected]

This event handler is called whenever the QScrollView receives a mouseDoubleClickEvent() - the click position is translated to be a point on the contents.

Reimplemented in QListView and QTable.

void QScrollView::contentsMouseMoveEvent ( QMouseEvent * ) [virtual protected]

This event handler is called whenever the QScrollView receives a mouseMoveEvent() - the mouse position is translated to be a point on the contents.

Reimplemented in QTable and QListView.

void QScrollView::contentsMousePressEvent ( QMouseEvent * ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented in QListView and QTable.

void QScrollView::contentsMouseReleaseEvent ( QMouseEvent * ) [virtual protected]

This event handler is called whenever the QScrollView receives a mouseReleaseEvent() - the release position is translated to be a point on the contents.

Reimplemented in QTable and QListView.

void QScrollView::contentsMoving ( int x, int y ) [signal]

This signal is emitted just before the contents is moved to the given position.

See also contentsX() and contentsY().

QPoint QScrollView::contentsToViewport ( const QPoint & p )

Returns the point p translated to a point on the viewport() widget.

void QScrollView::contentsToViewport ( int x, int y, int & vx, int & vy )

int QScrollView::contentsY () const

Returns the Y coordinate of the contents which is at the top edge of the viewport.

QWidgetQScrollView::cornerWidget () const

Returns the widget in the corner between the two scrollbars.

By default, no corner widget is present.

Examples: scrollview/scrollview.cpp

bool QScrollView::dragAutoScroll () const

Returns TRUE if autoscrolling in drag move events is enabled, else FALSE.

See also setDragAutoScroll().

void QScrollView::drawContents ( QPainter * p, int clipx, int clipy, int clipw, int cliph ) [virtual protected]

Reimplement this method if you are viewing a drawing area rather than a widget.

The function should draw the rectangle (clipx, clipy, clipw, cliph ) of the contents, using painter p. The clip rectangle is in the scroll views's coordinates.

For example:

  {
    // Fill a 40000 by 50000 rectangle at (100000,150000)

    // Calculate the coordinates...
    int x1 = 100000, y1 = 150000;
    int x2 = x1+40000-1, y2 = y1+50000-1;

    // Clip the coordinates so X/Windows will not have problems...
    if (x1 < clipx) x1=clipx;
    if (y1 < clipy) y1=clipy;
    if (x2 > clipx+clipw-1) x2=clipx+clipw-1;
    if (y2 > clipy+cliph-1) y2=clipy+cliph-1;

    // Paint using the small coordinates...
    if ( x2 >= x1 && y2 >= y1 )
        p->fillRect(x1, y1, x2-x1+1, y2-y1+1, red);
  }

The clip rectangle and translation of the painter p is already set appropriately.

Reimplemented in QCanvasView and QTable.

void QScrollView::drawContentsOffset ( QPainter * p, int offsetx, int offsety, int clipx, int clipy, int clipw, int cliph ) [virtual protected]

For backward compatibility only. It is easier to use drawContents(QPainter*,int,int,int,int).

The default implementation translates the painter appropriately and calls drawContents(QPainter*,int,int,int,int).

Reimplemented in QTextView and QListView.

void QScrollView::enableClipper ( bool y )

When large numbers of child widgets are in a scrollview, especially if they are close together, the scrolling performance can suffer greatly. If you call enableClipper(TRUE), the scrollview will use an extra widget to group child widgets.

Note that you may only call enableClipper() prior to adding widgets.

For a full discussion, see the overview documentation of this class.

Examples: scrollview/scrollview.cpp

void QScrollView::ensureVisible ( int x, int y ) [slot]

Scrolls the content so that the point (x, y) is visible with at least 50-pixel margins (if possible, otherwise centered).

See also setHScrollBarMode().

Examples: scrollview/scrollview.cpp

bool QScrollView::hasStaticBackground () const

Returns wether QScrollView uses a static background.

See also setStaticBackground().

QScrollBarQScrollView::horizontalScrollBar () const

Returns the component horizontal scrollbar. It is made available to allow accelerators, autoscrolling, etc., and to allow changing of arrow scroll rates: bar->setSteps( rate, bar->pageStep() ).

It should not be otherwise manipulated.

This function never returns 0.

int QScrollView::leftMargin () const [protected]

Returns the current left margin.

See also setMargins().

QSize QScrollView::minimumSizeHint () const [virtual]

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

Reimplemented from QWidget.

void QScrollView::moveChild ( QWidget * child, int x, int y ) [virtual]

Repositions child to (x, y). This functions the same as addChild().

void QScrollView::removeChild ( QObject * child ) [virtual]

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

Reimplemented from QObject.

void QScrollView::removeChild ( QWidget * child )

Removes a child from the scrolled area. Note that this happens automatically if the child is deleted.

void QScrollView::repaintContents ( int x, int y, int w, int h, bool erase=TRUE )

Calls repaint() on rectangle defined by x, y, w, h, translated appropriately. If the rectangle in not visible, nothing is repainted.

See also updateContents().

void QScrollView::repaintContents ( const QRect & r, bool erase=TRUE )

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It differs from the above function only in what argument(s) it accepts.

void QScrollView::resize ( const QSize & s )

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

Examples: iconview/main.cpp dirview/main.cpp

void QScrollView::resize ( int w, int h )

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

void QScrollView::resizeContents ( int w, int h ) [virtual slot]

Reimplemented in QListView.

void QScrollView::setCornerWidget ( QWidget * corner ) [virtual]

Sets the widget in the corner between the two scrollbars.

You will probably also want to set at least one of the scrollbar modes to AlwaysOn.

Passing 0 shows no widget in the corner.

Any previous corner widget is hidden.

You may call setCornerWidget() with the same widget at different times.

All widgets set here will be deleted by the QScrollView when it destructs unless you separately reparent the widget after setting some other corner widget (or 0).

Any newly set widget should have no current parent.

By default, no corner widget is present.

See also setVScrollBarMode() and setHScrollBarMode().

Examples: scrollview/scrollview.cpp

void QScrollView::setDragAutoScroll ( bool b )

If b is set to TRUE, the QScrollView automatically scrolls the contents in drag move events if the user moves the cursor close to a border of the view. This of course only works id the viewport accepts drops! Specifying FALSE here disables this autoscroll feature.

void QScrollView::setEnabled ( bool enable ) [virtual slot]

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

Reimplemented from QWidget.

void QScrollView::setHBarGeometry ( QScrollBar & hbar, int x, int y, int w, int h ) [virtual protected]

Called when the horizontal scrollbar geometry changes. This is provided as a protected function so that subclasses can do interesting things like providing extra buttons in some of the space normally used by the scrollbars.

The default implementation simply gives all the space to hbar.

See also setVBarGeometry().

void QScrollView::setHScrollBarMode ( ScrollBarMode mode )

Sets the mode for the horizontal scrollbar.

See also hScrollBarMode() and setVScrollBarMode().

Examples: scrollview/scrollview.cpp

void QScrollView::setMargins ( int left, int top, int right, int bottom ) [virtual protected]

Sets the margins around the scrolling area. This is useful for applications such as spreadsheets with `locked' rows and columns. The marginal space is inside the frameRect() and is left blank - reimplement drawContents() or put widgets in the unused area.

By default all margins are zero.

See also frameChanged().

void QScrollView::setResizePolicy ( ResizePolicy r )

Sets the resize policy to r.

See also resizePolicy() and ResizePolicy.

void QScrollView::setStaticBackground ( bool y )

Sets the scrollview to have a static background if y is TRUE, or a scrolling background otherwise. By default, the background is scrolling.

Beware that this mode is quite slow, as a full repaint of the visible area has to be triggered on every contents move.

See also hasStaticBackground().

void QScrollView::setVBarGeometry ( QScrollBar & vbar, int x, int y, int w, int h ) [virtual protected]

Called when the vertical scrollbar geometry changes. This is provided as a protected function so that subclasses can do interesting things like providing extra buttons in some of the space normally used by the scrollbars.

The default implementation simply gives all the space to vbar.

Calls update() on rectangle defined by x, y, w, h, translated appropriately. If the rectangle in not visible, nothing is repainted.

See also repaintContents().

void QScrollView::updateContents ( const QRect & r )

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It differs from the above function only in what argument(s) it accepts.

Updates scrollbars - all possibilities considered. You should never need to call this in your code.

QScrollView::ScrollBarMode QScrollView::vScrollBarMode() const

Returns the currently set mode for the vertical scrollbar.

See also setVScrollBarMode().

Examples: scrollview/scrollview.cpp

QScrollBarQScrollView::verticalScrollBar () const

It should not be otherwise manipulated.

This function never returns 0.

QWidgetQScrollView::viewport () const

Returns the viewport widget of the scrollview. This is the widget containing the contents widget or which is the drawing area.

Examples: scrollview/scrollview.cpp

void QScrollView::viewportDragEnterEvent ( QDragEnterEvent * e ) [virtual protected]

To provide simple processing of events on the contents, this method receives all drag enter events sent to the viewport.

See also contentsMousePressEvent() and QWidget::mousePressEvent().

Reimplemented in QTextBrowser, QTextView and QListBox.

void QScrollView::viewportMouseReleaseEvent ( QMouseEvent * e ) [virtual protected]
