Detailed Description

The Q3ProgressBar widget provides a horizontal progress bar.

A progress bar is used to give the user an indication of the progress of an operation and to reassure them that the application is still running.

The progress bar uses the concept of steps; you give it the total number of steps and the number of steps completed so far and it will display the percentage of steps that have been completed. You can specify the total number of steps in the constructor or later with setTotalSteps(). The current number of steps is set with setProgress(). The progress bar can be rewound to the beginning with reset().

If the total is given as 0 the progress bar shows a busy indicator instead of a percentage of steps. This is useful, for example, when using QFtp or QHttp to download items when they are unable to determine the size of the item being downloaded.

Property Documentation

centerIndicator : bool

This property holds whether the indicator string should be centered.

Access functions:

bool centerIndicator () const
void setCenterIndicator ( bool on )

percentageVisible : bool

This property holds whether the current progress value is displayed.

The default is true.

Access functions:

bool percentageVisible () const
void setPercentageVisible ( bool )

See also centerIndicator.

progress : int

This property holds the current amount of progress.

This property is -1 if progress counting has not started.

Access functions:

int progress () const
virtual void setProgress ( int progress )
void setProgress ( int progress, int totalSteps )

progressString : const QString

This property holds the amount of progress as a string.

This property is an empty string if progress counting has not started.

Access functions:

const QString & progressString () const

totalSteps : int

This property holds the total number of steps.

If totalSteps is 0, the progress bar will display a busy indicator.

Access functions:

int totalSteps () const
virtual void setTotalSteps ( int totalSteps )

Member Function Documentation

Q3ProgressBar::Q3ProgressBar ( QWidget * parent = 0, Qt::WindowFlags f = 0 )

Constructs a progress bar.

The total number of steps is set to 100 by default.

The parent, and widget flags, f, are passed on to the QFrame::QFrame() constructor.

See also setTotalSteps().

Q3ProgressBar::Q3ProgressBar ( int totalSteps, QWidget * parent = 0, Qt::WindowFlags f = 0 )

Constructs a progress bar.

The totalSteps is the total number of steps that need to be completed for the operation which this progress bar represents. For example, if the operation is to examine 50 files, this value would be 50. Before examining the first file, call setProgress(0); call setProgress(50) after examining the last file.

The parent, and widget flags, f, are passed to the QFrame::QFrame() constructor.

See also setTotalSteps() and setProgress().

void Q3ProgressBar::changeEvent ( QEvent * ev )   [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QWidget::changeEvent().

int Q3ProgressBar::margin () const

Returns the width of the margin around the contents of the widget.

This function uses QWidget::getContentsMargins() to get the margin.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

See also setMargin() and QWidget::getContentsMargins().

QSize Q3ProgressBar::minimumSizeHint () const   [virtual]

Reimplemented from QWidget::minimumSizeHint().

void Q3ProgressBar::paintEvent ( QPaintEvent * )   [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QWidget::paintEvent().

void Q3ProgressBar::reset ()   [slot]

Reset the progress bar. The progress bar "rewinds" and shows no progress.

bool Q3ProgressBar::setIndicator ( QString & indicator, int progress, int totalSteps )   [virtual protected]

This method is called to generate the text displayed in the center (or in some styles, to the left) of the progress bar.

The progress may be negative, indicating that the progress bar is in the "reset" state before any progress is set.

The default implementation is the percentage of completion or blank in the reset state. The percentage is calculated based on the progress and totalSteps. You can set the indicator text if you wish.

To allow efficient repainting of the progress bar, this method should return false if the string is unchanged from the last call to this function.

void Q3ProgressBar::setMargin ( int margin )

Sets the width of the margin around the contents of the widget to margin.

This function uses QWidget::setContentsMargins() to set the margin.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

See also margin() and QWidget::setContentsMargins().

void Q3ProgressBar::setVisible ( bool visible )   [virtual]

Reimplemented from QWidget::setVisible().

QSize Q3ProgressBar::sizeHint () const   [virtual]

Reimplemented from QWidget::sizeHint().
