Detailed Description

The QVector2D class can also be used to represent vertices in 2D space. We therefore do not need to provide a separate vertex class.

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D(point)

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D(vector)

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D(vector)

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D(xpos, ypos)

Parameters

Constructs a null vector, i.e. with coordinates (0, 0).

Constructs a vector with x and y coordinates from a 2D point.

Constructs a vector with x and y coordinates from a 2D point.

Constructs a vector with x and y coordinates from a 3D vector. The z coordinate of vector is dropped.

toVector3D()

Constructs a vector with x and y coordinates from a 3D vector. The z and w coordinates of vector are dropped.

See also

toVector4D()

Constructs a vector with coordinates (xpos, ypos).

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D.distanceToLine(point, direction)
Parameters
Return type

float

Returns the distance that this vertex is from a line defined by point and the unit vector direction.

If direction is a null vector, then it does not define a line. In that case, the distance from point to this vertex is returned.

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D.distanceToPoint(point)
Parameters

pointPySide6.QtGui.QVector2D

Return type

float

Returns the distance from this vertex to a point defined by the vertex point.

distanceToLine()

static PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D.dotProduct(v1, v2)
Parameters
Return type

float

Returns the dot product of v1 and v2.

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D.isNull()
Return type

bool

Returns true if the x and y coordinates are set to 0.0, otherwise returns false.

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D.length()
Return type

float

Returns the length of the vector from the origin.

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D.lengthSquared()
Return type

float

Returns the squared length of the vector from the origin. This is equivalent to the dot product of the vector with itself.

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D.normalize()

Normalizes the currect vector in place. Nothing happens if this vector is a null vector or the length of the vector is very close to 1.

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D.normalized()
Return type

PySide6.QtGui.QVector2D

Returns the normalized unit vector form of this vector.

If this vector is null, then a null vector is returned. If the length of the vector is very close to 1, then the vector will be returned as-is. Otherwise the normalized form of the vector of length 1 will be returned.
