Member Type Documentation

enum QTextOption::Flag
flags QTextOption::Flags


The Flags type is a typedef for QFlags<Flag>. It stores an OR combination of Flag values.

enum QTextOption::WrapMode

This enum describes how text is wrapped in a document.

QTextOption::NoWrap0Text is not wrapped at all.
QTextOption::WordWrap1Text is wrapped at word boundaries.
QTextOption::ManualWrap2Wrapping occurs at a manually specified length from the start of the line.
QTextOption::WrapAnywhere3Text can be wrapped at any point on a line, even if it occurs in the middle of a word.
QTextOption::WrapAtWordBoundaryOrAnywhere4If possible, wrapping occurs at a word boundary; otherwise it will occur at the appropriate point on the line, even in the middle of a word.

Constructs a text option with default properties for text.

QTextOption::QTextOption ( Qt::Alignment alignment )

Constructs a text option with the given alignment for text.

QTextOption::QTextOption ( const QTextOption & other )

Construct a copy of the other text option.

QTextOption::~QTextOption ()

Destroys the text option.

Qt::Alignment QTextOption::alignment () const

Returns the text alignment defined by the option.

See also setAlignment().

Flags QTextOption::flags () const

Returns the flags associated with the option.

See also setFlags().

void QTextOption::setAlignment ( Qt::Alignment alignment )

Sets the option's text alignment to the specified alignment.

See also alignment().

void QTextOption::setFlags ( Flags flags )

Sets the flags associated with the option to the given flags.

See also flags().

void QTextOption::setTabArray ( QList<qreal> tabStops )

Sets the tab positions for the text layout to those specified by tabStops.

See also tabArray() and setTabStop().

void QTextOption::setTabStop ( qreal tabStop )

Sets the distance in device units between tab stops to the value specified by tabStop.

See also tabStop() and setTabArray().

void QTextOption::setTextDirection ( Qt::LayoutDirection direction )

Sets the direction of the text layout defined by the option to the given direction.

See also textDirection().

void QTextOption::setUseDesignMetrics ( bool enable )

If enable is true then the layout will use design metrics; otherwise it will use the metrics of the paint device (which is the default behavior).

See also useDesignMetrics().

void QTextOption::setWrapMode ( WrapMode mode )

Sets the option's text wrap mode to the given mode.

See also wrapMode().

QList<qreal> QTextOption::tabArray () const

Returns a list of tab positions defined for the text layout.

See also setTabArray() and tabStop().

qreal QTextOption::tabStop () const

Returns the distance in device units between tab stops.

See also setTabStop() and tabArray().

Qt::LayoutDirection QTextOption::textDirection () const

Returns the direction of the text layout defined by the option.

See also setTextDirection().

bool QTextOption::useDesignMetrics () const

Returns true if the layout uses design rather than device metrics; otherwise returns false.

See also setUseDesignMetrics().

WrapMode QTextOption::wrapMode () const

Returns the text wrap mode defined by the option.

See also setWrapMode().
