QStyleOptionTab#

The QStyleOptionTab class is used to describe the parameters for drawing a tab bar. More

Detailed Description#

The QStyleOptionTab class is used for drawing several built-in Qt widgets including QTabBar and the panel for QTabWidget .

An instance of the QStyleOptionTab class has type SO_Tab and version 3. The type is used internally by QStyleOption , its subclasses, and qstyleoption_cast() to determine the type of style option. In general you do not need to worry about this unless you want to create your own QStyleOption subclass and your own styles. The version is used by QStyleOption subclasses to implement extensions without breaking compatibility. If you use qstyleoption_cast() , you normally do not need to check it.

For performance reasons, there are few member functions and the access to the member variables is direct (i.e., using the . or -> operator). This makes the structures straightforward to use and emphasizes that these are simply parameters used by the style functions.

For an example demonstrating how style options can be used, see the Styles example.
