Detailed Description¶
A painter path is an object composed of a number of graphical building blocks, such as rectangles, ellipses, lines, and curves. Building blocks can be joined in closed subpaths, for example as a rectangle or an ellipse. A closed path has coinciding start and end points. Or they can exist independently as unclosed subpaths, such as lines and curves.
A
QPainterPath
object can be used for filling, outlining, and clipping. To generate fillable outlines for a given painter path, use theQPainterPathStroker
class. The main advantage of painter paths over normal drawing operations is that complex shapes only need to be created once; then they can be drawn many times using only calls to thedrawPath()
function.
QPainterPath
provides a collection of functions that can be used to obtain information about the path and its elements. In addition it is possible to reverse the order of the elements using thetoReversed()
function. There are also several functions to convert this painter path object into a polygon representation.
Composing a QPainterPath¶
A
QPainterPath
object can be constructed as an empty path, with a given start point, or as a copy of anotherQPainterPath
object. Once created, lines and curves can be added to the path using thelineTo()
,arcTo()
,cubicTo()
andquadTo()
functions. The lines and curves stretch from thecurrentPosition()
to the position passed as argument.The
currentPosition()
of theQPainterPath
object is always the end position of the last subpath that was added (or the initial start point). Use themoveTo()
function to move thecurrentPosition()
without adding a component. ThemoveTo()
function implicitly starts a new subpath, and closes the previous one. Another way of starting a new subpath is to call thecloseSubpath()
function which closes the current path by adding a line from thecurrentPosition()
back to the path’s start position. Note that the new path will have (0, 0) as its initialcurrentPosition()
.
QPainterPath
class also provides several convenience functions to add closed subpaths to a painter path:addEllipse()
,addPath()
,addRect()
,addRegion()
andaddText()
. TheaddPolygon()
function adds an unclosed subpath. In fact, these functions are all collections ofmoveTo()
,lineTo()
andcubicTo()
operations.In addition, a path can be added to the current path using the
connectPath()
function. But note that this function will connect the last element of the current path to the first element of given one by adding a line.Below is a code snippet that shows how a
QPainterPath
object can be used:
path = QPainterPath() path.addRect(20, 20, 60, 60) path.moveTo(0, 0) path.cubicTo(99, 0, 50, 50, 99, 99) path.cubicTo(0, 99, 50, 50, 0, 0) QPainter painter(self) painter.fillRect(0, 0, 100, 100, Qt.white) painter.setPen(QPen(QColor(79, 106, 25), 1, Qt.SolidLine, Qt.FlatCap, Qt.MiterJoin)) painter.setBrush(QColor(122, 163, 39)) painter.drawPath(path)The painter path is initially empty when constructed. We first add a rectangle, which is a closed subpath. Then we add two bezier curves which together form a closed subpath even though they are not closed individually. Finally we draw the entire path. The path is filled using the default fill rule,
OddEvenFill
. Qt provides two methods for filling paths:
OddEvenFill
WindingFill
See the
FillRule
documentation for the definition of the rules. A painter path’s currently set fill rule can be retrieved using thefillRule()
function, and altered using thesetFillRule()
function.
QPainterPath Information¶
The
QPainterPath
class provides a collection of functions that returns information about the path and its elements.The
currentPosition()
function returns the end point of the last subpath that was added (or the initial start point). TheelementAt()
function can be used to retrieve the various subpath elements, the number of elements can be retrieved using theelementCount()
function, and theisEmpty()
function tells whether thisQPainterPath
object contains any elements at all.The
controlPointRect()
function returns the rectangle containing all the points and control points in this path. This function is significantly faster to compute than the exactboundingRect()
which returns the bounding rectangle of this painter path with floating point precision.Finally,
QPainterPath
provides thecontains()
function which can be used to determine whether a given point or rectangle is inside the path, and theintersects()
function which determines if any of the points inside a given rectangle also are inside this path.
QPainterPath Conversion¶
For compatibility reasons, it might be required to simplify the representation of a painter path:
QPainterPath
provides thetoFillPolygon()
,toFillPolygons()
andtoSubpathPolygons()
functions which convert the painter path into a polygon. ThetoFillPolygon()
returns the painter path as one single polygon, while the two latter functions return a list of polygons.The
toFillPolygons()
andtoSubpathPolygons()
functions are provided because it is usually faster to draw several small polygons than to draw one large polygon, even though the total number of points drawn is the same. The difference between the two is the number of polygons they return: ThetoSubpathPolygons()
creates one polygon for each subpath regardless of intersecting subpaths (i.e. overlapping bounding rectangles), while thetoFillPolygons()
functions creates only one polygon for overlapping subpaths.The
toFillPolygon()
andtoFillPolygons()
functions first convert all the subpaths to polygons, then uses a rewinding technique to make sure that overlapping subpaths can be filled using the correct fill rule. Note that rewinding inserts additional lines in the polygon so the outline of the fill polygon does not match the outline of the path.
Examples¶
Qt provides the Painter Paths Example and the Vector Deformation example which are located in Qt’s example directory.
The Painter Paths Example shows how painter paths can be used to build complex shapes for rendering and lets the user experiment with the filling and stroking. The Vector Deformation Example shows how to use
QPainterPath
to draw text.

pointAtPercent
(t)¶  Parameters
t –
qreal
 Return type
QPointF
Returns the point at at the percentage
t
of the current path. The argumentt
has to be between 0 and 1.Note that similarly to other percent methods, the percentage measurement is not linear with regards to the length, if curves are present in the path. When curves are present the percentage argument is mapped to the t parameter of the Bezier equations.

PySide2.QtGui.QPainterPath.
simplified
()¶  Return type
Returns a simplified version of this path. This implies merging all subpaths that intersect, and returning a path containing no intersecting edges. Consecutive parallel lines will also be merged. The simplified path will always use the default fill rule,
OddEvenFill
. Bezier curves may be flattened to line segments due to numerical instability of doing bezier curve intersections.

slopeAtPercent
(t)¶  Parameters
t –
qreal
 Return type
qreal
Returns the slope of the path at the percentage
t
. The argumentt
has to be between 0 and 1.Note that similarly to other percent methods, the percentage measurement is not linear with regards to the length, if curves are present in the path. When curves are present the percentage argument is mapped to the t parameter of the Bezier equations.

subtracted
(r)¶  Parameters
r –
QPainterPath
 Return type
Returns a path which is
p
‘s fill area subtracted from this path’s fill area.Set operations on paths will treat the paths as areas. Nonclosed paths will be treated as implicitly closed. Bezier curves may be flattened to line segments due to numerical instability of doing bezier curve intersections.
