Detailed Description

The QSlider widget provides a vertical or horizontal slider.

The slider is the classic widget for controlling a bounded value. It lets the user move a slider along a horizontal or vertical groove, and translates the slider's position into an integer value in the legal range.

QSlider inherits QRangeControl, which provides the "integer" side of the slider. setRange() and value() are likely to be used by practically all slider users; see the QRangeControl documentation for information about the many other functions that class provides.

The main functions offered by the slider itself are tickmark and orientation control; you can use setTickmarks() to indicate where you want the tickmarks to be, setTickInterval() to indicate how many of them you want, and setOrientation() to indicate whether the slider is to e horizontal or vertical.

A slider has a default focusPolicy() of WeakWheelFocus, i.e. it accepts focus on Tab and by using the mouse wheel, and a suitable keyboard interface.

Examples: xform/xform.cpp


Member Type Documentation

QSlider::TickSetting

This enum specifies where the tick marks are to be drawn, relative to the slider's groove and the handle the user moves. The possible values are NoMarks (no tickmarks are drawn), Above, Below, Left, Right and Both.

NoMarks means to not draw any tickmarks; Both means to draw tickmarks on both sides of the groove. Above and Below mean to draw tickmarks above and below the (horizontal) slider. Left and Right mean to draw tickmarks to the left and right of the (vertical) slider.


Member Function Documentation

QSlider::QSlider ( Orientation orientation, QWidget * parent, const char * name=0 )

Constructs a slider.

The orientation must be QSlider::Vertical or QSlider::Horizontal.

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

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

Constructs a vertical slider.

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

QSlider::QSlider ( int minValue, int maxValue, int pageStep, int value, Orientation orientation, QWidget * parent, const char * name=0 )

Constructs a slider.

Arguments:

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

void QSlider::addStep () [slot]

Moves the slider one pageStep() upwards.

void QSlider::drawTicks ( QPainter * p, const QColorGroup & g, int dist, int w, int i=1 ) const [protected]

Using p, draws tickmarks at a distance of dist from the edge of the widget, using w pixels and with an interval of i.

Setting the colorgroup is useful to reuse the code to draw a mask if the slider supports transparceny.

See also setAutoMask() and updateMask().

void QSlider::drawTicks ( QPainter * p, int dist, int w, int i=1 ) const [protected]

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.

\overload

Do not reimplement this function, it's only there for compatibility reasons. It simply calls the other version with colorGroup() as the second argument.

void QSlider::drawWinGroove ( QPainter * p, QCOORD c ) [protected]

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.

Draws the "groove" on which the slider moves, using the painter p. c gives the distance from the top (or left) edge of the widget to the center of the groove.

Orientation QSlider::orientation () const

Returns the slider orientation; QSlider::Vertical or QSlider::Horizontal.

See also setOrientation().

int QSlider::pageStep () const

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

void QSlider::paintEvent ( QPaintEvent * ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

Reimplemented from QWidget.

void QSlider::paintSlider ( QPainter * p, const QColorGroup & g, const QRect & r ) [virtual protected]

Paints the slider button using painter p with size, a colorgroup and position given by r. Reimplement this function to change the look of the slider button.

Setting the colorgroup is useful to reuse the code to draw a mask if the slider supports transparceny.

See also setAutoMask() and updateMask().

void QSlider::rangeChange () [virtual protected]

Implements the virtual QRangeControl function.

Reimplemented from QRangeControl.

void QSlider::resizeEvent ( QResizeEvent * ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

Reimplemented from QWidget.

void QSlider::setLineStep ( int i )

Sets the line step to i.

Calls the virtual stepChange() function if the new line step is different from the previous setting.

See also lineStep(), QRangeControl::setSteps(), setPageStep() and setRange().

void QSlider::setMaxValue ( int i )

A convenience function which just calls setRange( minValue(), i )

See also setRange().

void QSlider::setMinValue ( int i )

A convenience function which just calls setRange( i, maxValue() )

See also setRange().

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

Sets the slider orientation. The orientation must be QSlider::Vertical or QSlider::Horizontal.

See also orientation().

void QSlider::setPageStep ( int i )

Sets the page step to i.

Calls the virtual stepChange() function if the new page step is different from the previous setting.

See also pageStep(), QRangeControl::setSteps(), setLineStep() and setRange().

void QSlider::setPalette ( const QPalette & p ) [virtual]

Reimplements the virtual function QWidget::setPalette().

Sets the background color to the mid color for Motif style sliders.

void QSlider::setTickInterval ( int i ) [virtual]

Sets the interval between tickmarks to i. This is a value interval, not a pixel interval. If i is 0, the slider will choose between lineStep() and pageStep(). The initial value of tickInterval() is 0.

See also tickInterval(), QRangeControl::lineStep() and QRangeControl::pageStep().

void QSlider::setTickmarks ( TickSetting s )

Sets the way tickmarks are displayed by the slider. s can take the following values:

The initial value is NoMarks.

See also tickmarks() and setTickInterval().

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

Enables slider tracking if enable is TRUE, or disables tracking if enable is FALSE.

If tracking is enabled (default), the slider emits the valueChanged() signal whenever the slider is being dragged. If tracking is disabled, the slider emits the valueChanged() signal when the user releases the mouse button (unless the value happens to be the same as before).

See also tracking().

void QSlider::setValue ( int value ) [virtual slot]

Makes QRangeControl::setValue() available as a slot.

Examples: xform/xform.cpp

QSize QSlider::sizeHint () const [virtual]

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

Reimplemented from QWidget.

QSizePolicy QSlider::sizePolicy () const [virtual]

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

Reimplemented from QWidget.

void QSlider::sliderMoved ( int value ) [signal]

This signal is emitted when the slider is dragged, with the new slider value as an argument.

void QSlider::sliderPressed () [signal]

This signal is emitted when the user presses the slider with the mouse.

QRect QSlider::sliderRect () const

Returns the slider handle rectangle. (The actual moving-around thing.).

void QSlider::sliderReleased () [signal]

This signal is emitted when the user releases the slider with the mouse.

void QSlider::styleChange ( QStyle & old ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented for internal reasons; the API is not affected.

Reimplemented from QWidget.

void QSlider::subtractStep () [slot]

Moves the slider one pageStep() downwards.

int QSlider::thickness () const [virtual protected]

Returns the number of pixels to use for the business part of the slider (i.e. the non-tickmark portion). The remaining space is shared equally between the tickmark regions. This function and sizeHint() are closely related; if you change one, you almost certainly have to change the other.

int QSlider::tickInterval () const

Returns the interval between tickmarks. Returns 0 if the slider chooses between pageStep() and lineStep().

See also setTickInterval().

QSlider::TickSetting QSlider::tickmarks() const

Returns the tickmark settings for this slider.
