Detailed Description

The QSizeF class defines the size of a two-dimensional object using floating point precision.

A size is specified by a width() and a height(). It can be set in the constructor and changed using the setWidth(), setHeight(), or scale() functions, or using arithmetic operators. A size can also be manipulated directly by retrieving references to the width and height using the rwidth() and rheight() functions. Finally, the width and height can be swapped using the transpose() function.

The isValid() function determines if a size is valid. A valid size has both width and height greater than or equal to zero. The isEmpty() function returns true if either of the width and height is less than (or equal to) zero, while the isNull() function returns true only if both the width and the height is zero.

Use the expandedTo() function to retrieve a size which holds the maximum height and width of this size and a given size. Similarly, the boundedTo() function returns a size which holds the minimum height and width of this size and a given size.

The QSizeF class also provides the toSize() function returning a QSize copy of this size, constructed by rounding the width and height to the nearest integers.

QSizeF objects can be streamed as well as compared.

Member Function Documentation

QSizeF::QSizeF ()

Constructs an invalid size.

See also isValid().

QSizeF::QSizeF ( const QSize & size )

Constructs a size with floating point accuracy from the given size.

See also toSize().

QSizeF::QSizeF ( qreal width, qreal height )

Constructs a size with the given width and height.

QSizeF QSizeF::boundedTo ( const QSizeF & otherSize ) const

Returns a size holding the minimum width and height of this size and the given otherSize.

See also expandedTo() and scale().

QSizeF QSizeF::expandedTo ( const QSizeF & otherSize ) const

Returns a size holding the maximum width and height of this size and the given otherSize.

See also boundedTo() and scale().

qreal QSizeF::height () const

Returns the height.

See also width() and setHeight().

bool QSizeF::isEmpty () const

Returns true if either of the width and height is less than or equal to 0; otherwise returns false.

See also isNull() and isValid().

bool QSizeF::isNull () const

Returns true if both the width and height are +0.0; otherwise returns false.

Note: Since this function treats +0.0 and -0.0 differently, sizes with zero width and height where either or both values have a negative sign are not defined to be null sizes.

See also isValid() and isEmpty().

bool QSizeF::isValid () const

Returns true if both the width and height is equal to or greater than 0; otherwise returns false.

See also isNull() and isEmpty().

qreal & QSizeF::rheight ()

Returns a reference to the height.

Using a reference makes it possible to manipulate the height directly. For example:

 QSizeF size(100, 10.2);
 size.rheight() += 5.5;

 // size becomes (100,15.7)

See also rwidth() and setHeight().

qreal & QSizeF::rwidth ()

Returns a reference to the width.

Using a reference makes it possible to manipulate the width directly. For example:

 QSizeF size(100.3, 10);
 size.rwidth() += 20.5;

  // size becomes (120.8,10)

See also rheight() and setWidth().

void QSizeF::scale ( qreal width, qreal height, Qt::AspectRatioMode mode )

Scales the size to a rectangle with the given width and height, according to the specified mode.

  • If mode is Qt::IgnoreAspectRatio, the size is set to (width, height).
  • If mode is Qt::KeepAspectRatio, the current size is scaled to a rectangle as large as possible inside (width, height), preserving the aspect ratio.
  • If mode is Qt::KeepAspectRatioByExpanding, the current size is scaled to a rectangle as small as possible outside (width, height), preserving the aspect ratio.

Example:

 QSizeF t1(10, 12);
 t1.scale(60, 60, Qt::IgnoreAspectRatio);
 // t1 is (60, 60)

 QSizeF t2(10, 12);
 t2.scale(60, 60, Qt::KeepAspectRatio);
 // t2 is (50, 60)

 QSizeF t3(10, 12);
 t3.scale(60, 60, Qt::KeepAspectRatioByExpanding);
 // t3 is (60, 72)

See also setWidth() and setHeight().

void QSizeF::scale ( const QSizeF & size, Qt::AspectRatioMode mode )

This is an overloaded function.

Scales the size to a rectangle with the given size, according to the specified mode.

void QSizeF::setHeight ( qreal height )

Sets the height to the given height.

See also height(), rheight(), and setWidth().

void QSizeF::setWidth ( qreal width )

Sets the width to the given width.

See also width(), rwidth(), and setHeight().

QSize QSizeF::toSize () const

Returns an integer based copy of this size.

Note that the coordinates in the returned size will be rounded to the nearest integer.

See also QSizeF().

void QSizeF::transpose ()

Swaps the width and height values.

See also setWidth() and setHeight().

qreal QSizeF::width () const

Returns the width.

See also height() and setWidth().

QSizeF & QSizeF::operator*= ( qreal factor )

This is an overloaded function.

Multiplies both the width and height by the given factor and returns a reference to the size.

See also scale().

QSizeF & QSizeF::operator+= ( const QSizeF & size )

Adds the given size to this size and returns a reference to this size. For example:

 QSizeF s( 3, 7);
 QSizeF r(-1, 4);
 s += r;

 // s becomes (2,11)

QSizeF & QSizeF::operator-= ( const QSizeF & size )

Subtracts the given size from this size and returns a reference to this size. For example:

 QSizeF s( 3, 7);
 QSizeF r(-1, 4);
 s -= r;

 // s becomes (4,3)

QSizeF & QSizeF::operator/= ( qreal divisor )

This is an overloaded function.

Divides both the width and height by the given divisor and returns a reference to the size.

See also scale().

QDataStream & operator>> ( QDataStream & stream, QSizeF & size )

Reads a size from the given stream into the given size and returns a reference to the stream.
