Detailed Description¶
A
QLineF
describes a finite length line (or line segment) on a twodimensional surface.QLineF
defines the start and end points of the line using floating point accuracy for coordinates. Use thetoLine()
function to retrieve an integer based copy of this line.
The positions of the line’s start and end points can be retrieved using the
p1()
,x1()
,y1()
,p2()
,x2()
, andy2()
functions. Thedx()
anddy()
functions return the horizontal and vertical components of the line, respectively.The line’s length can be retrieved using the
length()
function, and altered using thesetLength()
function. Similarly,angle()
andsetAngle()
are respectively used for retrieving and altering the angle of the line. Use theisNull()
function to determine whether theQLineF
represents a valid line or a null line.The
intersects()
function determines the IntersectionType for this line and a given line, while theangleTo()
function returns the angle between the lines. In addition, theunitVector()
function returns a line that has the same starting point as this line, but with a length of only 1, while thenormalVector()
function returns a line that is perpendicular to this line with the same starting point and length.Finally, the line can be translated a given offset using the
translate()
function, and can be traversed using thepointAt()
function.
Constraints¶

class
QLineF
¶ Constructs a null line.
Construct a
QLineF
object from the given integerbasedline
.See also
Constructs a line object that represents the line between
p1
andp2
.Constructs a line object that represents the line between (
x1
,y1
) and (x2
,y2
).

PySide2.QtCore.QLineF.
IntersectType
¶ Describes the intersection between two lines.
Constant
Description
QLineF.NoIntersection
Indicates that the lines do not intersect; i.e. they are parallel.
QLineF.UnboundedIntersection
The two lines intersect, but not within the range defined by their lengths. This will be the case if the lines are not parallel.
intersect()
will also return this value if the intersect point is within the start and end point of only one of the lines.QLineF.BoundedIntersection
The two lines intersect with each other within the start and end points of each line.

__reduce__
()¶  Return type
PyObject

PySide2.QtCore.QLineF.
__repr__
()¶  Return type
PyObject

PySide2.QtCore.QLineF.
angle
()¶  Return type
qreal
Returns the angle of the line in degrees.
The return value will be in the range of values from 0.0 up to but not including 360.0. The angles are measured counterclockwise from a point on the xaxis to the right of the origin (x > 0).

PySide2.QtCore.QLineF.
angle
(l)¶  Parameters
l –
QLineF
 Return type
qreal
Note
This function is deprecated.
Returns the angle (in degrees) between this line and the given
line
, taking the direction of the lines into account. If the lines do not intersect within their range, it is the intersection point of the extended lines that serves as origin (seeUnboundedIntersection
).When the lines are parallel, this function returns 0 if they have the same direction; otherwise it returns 180.

PySide2.QtCore.QLineF.
angleTo
(l)¶  Parameters
l –
QLineF
 Return type
qreal
Returns the angle (in degrees) from this line to the given
line
, taking the direction of the lines into account. If the lines do not intersect within their range, it is the intersection point of the extended lines that serves as origin (seeUnboundedIntersection
).The returned value represents the number of degrees you need to add to this line to make it have the same angle as the given
line
, going counterclockwise.See also

center
()¶  Return type
Returns the center point of this line. This is equivalent to 0.5 *
p1()
+ 0.5 *p2()
.

dx
()¶  Return type
qreal
Returns the horizontal component of the line’s vector.

()¶  Return type
qreal
Returns the vertical component of the line’s vector.

fromPolar
(length, angle)¶  Parameters
length –
qreal
angle –

 Return type
Returns a
QLineF
with the givenlength
andangle
.The first point of the line will be on the origin.
Positive values for the angles mean counterclockwise while negative values mean the clockwise direction. Zero degrees is at the 3 o’clock position.

(l)¶  Parameters
l –

 Return type
(intersectType, intersectionPoint)
Note
This function is deprecated.
Returns a value indicating whether or not this line intersects with the given

intersects
(l, intersectionPoint)¶  Parameters
 Return type
Returns a value indicating whether or not this line intersects with the given
line
.The actual intersection point is extracted to
intersectionPoint
