Detailed Description¶
A rectangle is normally expressed as a topleft corner and a size. The size (width and height) of a QRect
is always equivalent to the mathematical rectangle that forms the basis for its rendering.
A QRect
can be constructed with a set of left, top, width and height integers, or from a QPoint
and a QSize
. The following code creates two identical rectangles.
r1 = QRect(100, 200, 11, 16) r2 = QRect(QPoint(100, 200), QSize(11, 16))
There is a third constructor that creates a QRect
using the topleft and bottomright coordinates, but we recommend that you avoid using it. The rationale is that for historical reasons the values returned by the bottom()
and right()
functions deviate from the true bottomright corner of the rectangle.
The QRect
class provides a collection of functions that return the various rectangle coordinates, and enable manipulation of these. QRect
also provides functions to move the rectangle relative to the various coordinates. In addition there is a moveTo()
function that moves the rectangle, leaving its top left corner at the given coordinates. Alternatively, the translate()
function moves the rectangle the given offset relative to the current position, and the translated()
function returns a translated copy of this rectangle.
The size()
function returns the rectangle’s dimensions as a QSize
. The dimensions can also be retrieved separately using the width()
and height()
functions. To manipulate the dimensions use the setSize()
, setWidth()
or setHeight()
functions. Alternatively, the size can be changed by applying either of the functions setting the rectangle coordinates, for example, setBottom()
or setRight()
.
The contains()
function tells whether a given point is inside the rectangle or not, and the intersects()
function returns true
if this rectangle intersects with a given rectangle. The QRect
class also provides the intersected()
function which returns the intersection rectangle, and the united()
function which returns the rectangle that encloses the given rectangle and this:
The isEmpty()
function returns true
if left()
> right()
or top()
> bottom()
. Note that an empty rectangle is not valid: The isValid()
function returns true
if left()
<= right()
and top()
<= bottom()
. A null rectangle ( isNull()
== true) on the other hand, has both width and height set to 0.
Note that due to the way QRect
and QRectF
are defined, an empty QRect
is defined in essentially the same way as QRectF
.
Finally, QRect
objects can be streamed as well as compared.
Rendering¶
When using an antialiased
painter, the boundary line of a QRect
will be rendered symmetrically on both sides of the mathematical rectangle’s boundary line. But when using an aliased painter (the default) other rules apply.
Then, when rendering with a one pixel wide pen the QRect
‘s boundary line will be rendered to the right and below the mathematical rectangle’s boundary line.
When rendering with a two pixels wide pen the boundary line will be split in the middle by the mathematical rectangle. This will be the case whenever the pen is set to an even number of pixels, while rendering with a pen with an odd number of pixels, the spare pixel will be rendered to the right and below the mathematical rectangle as in the one pixel case.
Logical representation
One pixel wide pen
Two pixel wide pen
Three pixel wide pen
Coordinates¶
The QRect
class provides a collection of functions that return the various rectangle coordinates, and enable manipulation of these. QRect
also provides functions to move the rectangle relative to the various coordinates.
For example the left()
, setLeft()
and moveLeft()
functions as an example: left()
returns the xcoordinate of the rectangle’s left edge, setLeft()
sets the left edge of the rectangle to the given x coordinate (it may change the width, but will never change the rectangle’s right edge) and moveLeft()
moves the entire rectangle horizontally, leaving the rectangle’s left edge at the given x coordinate and its size unchanged.
Note that for historical reasons the values returned by the bottom()
and right()
functions deviate from the true bottomright corner of the rectangle: The right()
function returns ** left()
+ width()
 1 and the bottom()
function returns ** top()
+ height()
 1. The same is the case for the point returned by the bottomRight()
convenience function. In addition, the x and y coordinate of the topRight()
and bottomLeft()
functions, respectively, contain the same deviation from the true right and bottom edges.
We recommend that you use x()
+ width()
and y()
+ height()
to find the true bottomright corner, and avoid right()
and bottom()
. Another solution is to use QRectF
: The QRectF
class defines a rectangle in the plane using floating point accuracy for coordinates, and the right()
and bottom()
functions do return the right and bottom coordinates.
It is also possible to add offsets to this rectangle’s coordinates using the adjust()
function, as well as retrieve a new rectangle based on adjustments of the original one using the adjusted()
function. If either of the width and height is negative, use the normalized()
function to retrieve a rectangle where the corners are swapped.
In addition, QRect
provides the getCoords()
function which extracts the position of the rectangle’s topleft and bottomright corner, and the getRect()
function which extracts the rectangle’s topleft corner, width and height. Use the setCoords()
and setRect()
function to manipulate the rectangle’s coordinates and dimensions in one go.
Constraints¶
QRect
is limited to the minimum and maximum values for the int
type. Operations on a QRect
that could potentially result in values outside this range will result in undefined behavior.
