The QRegion class specifies a clip region for a painter.

QRegion is used with QPainter::setClipRegion() to limit the paint area to what needs to be painted. There is also a QWidget::repaint() function that takes a QRegion parameter. QRegion is the best tool for reducing flicker.

A region can be created from a rectangle, an ellipse, a polygon or a bitmap. Complex regions may be created by combining simple regions using united(), intersected(), subtracted(), or xored() (exclusive or). You can move a region using translate().

You can test whether a region isEmpty() or if it contains() a QPoint or QRect. The bounding rectangle can be found with boundingRect().

The function rects() gives a decomposition of the region into rectangles.

Example of using complex regions:

void MyWidget::paintEvent(QPaintEvent *) { QRegion r1(QRect(100, 100, 200, 80), // r1: elliptic region QRegion::Ellipse); QRegion r2(QRect(100, 120, 90, 30)); // r2: rectangular region QRegion r3 = r1.intersected(r2); // r3: intersection QPainter painter(this); painter.setClipRegion(r3); ... // paint clipped graphics }

QRegion is an implicitly shared class.

**Warning:** Due to window system limitations, the whole coordinate space for a region is limited to the points between -32767 and 32767 on Windows 95/98/ME. You can circumvent this limitation by using a QPainterPath.

See also QPainter::setClipRegion(), QPainter::setClipRect(), and QPainterPath.

Specifies the shape of the region to be created.

Constant | Value | Description |
---|---|---|

QRegion::Rectangle | 0 | the region covers the entire rectangle. |

QRegion::Ellipse | 1 | the region is an ellipse inside the rectangle. |

Constructs an empty region.

See also isEmpty().

Constructs a rectangular or elliptic region.

If *t* is `Rectangle`, the region is the filled rectangle (*x*, *y*, *w*, *h*). If *t* is `Ellipse`, the region is the filled ellipse with center at (*x* + *w* / 2, *y* + *h* / 2) and size (*w* ,*h*).

Constructs a polygon region from the point array *a* with the fill rule specified by *fillRule*.

If *fillRule* is Qt::WindingFill, the polygon region is defined using the winding algorithm; if it is Qt::OddEvenFill, the odd-even fill algorithm is used.

**Warning:** This constructor can be used to create complex regions that will slow down painting when used.

Constructs a new region which is equal to region *r*.

Constructs a region from the bitmap *bm*.

The resulting region consists of the pixels in bitmap *bm* that are Qt::color1, as if each pixel was a 1 by 1 rectangle.

This constructor may create complex regions that will slow down painting when used. Note that drawing masked pixmaps can be done much faster using QPixmap::setMask().

Create a region based on the rectange *r* with region type *t*.

If the rectangle is invalid a null region will be created.

See also QRegion::RegionType.

Destroys the region.

Returns the bounding rectangle of this region. An empty region gives a rectangle that is QRect::isNull().

Returns true if the region contains the point *p*; otherwise returns false.

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience.

Returns true if the region overlaps the rectangle *r*; otherwise returns false.

Returns a platform-specific region handle. The `Handle` type is `HRGN` on Windows, `Region` on X11, and `RgnHandle` on Mac OS X. On Qtopia Core it is `void *`.

**Warning:** This function is not portable.

Returns a region which is the intersection of this region and *r*.

The figure shows the intersection of two elliptical regions.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

Returns true if this region intersects with *region*, otherwise returns false.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience.

Returns true if this region intersects with *rect*, otherwise returns false.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

Returns true if the region is empty; otherwise returns false. An empty region is a region that contains no points.

Example:

QRegion r1(10, 10, 20, 20); r1.isNull(); // false r1.isEmpty(); // false QRegion r2(40, 40, 20, 20); QRegion r3; r3.isNull(); // true r3.isEmpty(); // true r3 = r1.intersected(r2); // r3: intersection of r1 and r2 r3.isNull(); // false r3.isEmpty(); // true r3 = r1.united(r2); // r3: union of r1 and r2 r3.isNull(); // false r3.isEmpty(); // false

Returns an array of non-overlapping rectangles that make up the region.

The union of all the rectangles is equal to the original region.

See also setRects().

Sets the region using the array of rectangles specified by *rects* and *number*. The rectangles *must* be optimally Y-X sorted and follow these restrictions:

- The rectangles must not intersect.
- All rectangles with a given top coordinate must have the same height.
- No two rectangles may abut horizontally (they should be combined into a single wider rectangle in that case).
- The rectangles must be sorted in ascending order, with Y as the major sort key and X as the minor sort key.

See also rects().

Returns a region which is *r* subtracted from this region.

The figure shows the result when the ellipse on the right is subtracted from the ellipse on the left (`left - right`).

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

See also intersected(), united(), and xored().

Translates (moves) the region *dx* along the X axis and *dy* along the Y axis.

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience.

Translates the region *point**.x()* along the x axis and *point**.y()* along the y axis, relative to the current position. Positive values move the region to the right and down.

Translates to the given *point*.

Returns a copy of the region that is translated *dx* along the x axis and *dy* along the y axis, relative to the current position. Positive values move the region to the right and down.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.1.

See also translate().

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience.

Returns a copy of the regtion that is translated *p**.x()* along the x axis and *p**.y()* along the y axis, relative to the current position. Positive values move the rectangle to the right and down.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.1.

See also translate().

Returns a region which is the union of this region and *r*.

The figure shows the union of two elliptical regions.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

See also intersected(), subtracted(), and xored().

The figure shows the exclusive or of two elliptical regions.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.
