Detailed Description

The QToolBar class provides a movable panel that contains a set of controls.

Toolbar buttons are added by adding actions, using addAction() or insertAction(). Groups of buttons can be separated using addSeparator() or insertSeparator(). If a toolbar button is not appropriate, a widget can be inserted instead using addWidget() or insertWidget(); examples of suitable widgets are QSpinBox, QDoubleSpinBox, and QComboBox. When a toolbar button is pressed it emits the actionTriggered() signal.

A toolbar can be fixed in place in a particular area (e.g. at the top of the window), or it can be movable (isMovable()) between toolbar areas; see allowedAreas() and isAreaAllowed().

When a toolbar is resized in such a way that it is too small to show all the items it contains, an extension button will appear as the last item in the toolbar. Pressing the extension button will pop up a menu containing the items that does not currently fit in the toolbar.

When a QToolBar is not a child of a QMainWindow, it loses the ability to populate the extension pop up with widgets added to the toolbar using addWidget(). Please use widget actions created by inheriting QWidgetAction and implementing QWidgetAction::createWidget() instead.

Property Documentation

allowedAreas : Qt::ToolBarAreas

This property holds areas where the toolbar may be placed.

The default is Qt::AllToolBarAreas.

This property only makes sense if the toolbar is in a QMainWindow.

Access functions:

Qt::ToolBarAreas allowedAreas () const
void setAllowedAreas ( Qt::ToolBarAreas areas )

Notifier signal:

void allowedAreasChanged ( Qt::ToolBarAreas allowedAreas )

See also movable.

floatable : bool

This property holds whether the toolbar can be dragged and dropped as an independent window.

The default is true.

Access functions:

bool isFloatable () const
void setFloatable ( bool floatable )

floating : const bool

This property holds whether the toolbar is an independent window.

By default, this property is true.

Access functions:

bool isFloating () const

See also QWidget::isWindow().

iconSize : QSize

This property holds size of icons in the toolbar.

The default size is determined by the application's style and is derived from the QStyle::PM_ToolBarIconSize pixel metric. It is the maximum size an icon can have. Icons of smaller size will not be scaled up.

Access functions:

QSize iconSize () const
void setIconSize ( const QSize & iconSize )

Notifier signal:

void iconSizeChanged ( const QSize & iconSize )

movable : bool

This property holds whether the user can move the toolbar within the toolbar area, or between toolbar areas.

By default, this property is true.

This property only makes sense if the toolbar is in a QMainWindow.

Access functions:

bool isMovable () const
void setMovable ( bool movable )

Notifier signal:

void movableChanged ( bool movable )

See also allowedAreas.

orientation : Qt::Orientation

This property holds orientation of the toolbar.

The default is Qt::Horizontal.

This function should not be used when the toolbar is managed by QMainWindow. You can use QMainWindow::addToolBar() or QMainWindow::insertToolBar() if you wish to move a toolbar (that is already added to a main window) to another Qt::ToolBarArea.

Access functions:

Qt::Orientation orientation () const
void setOrientation ( Qt::Orientation orientation )

Notifier signal:

void orientationChanged ( Qt::Orientation orientation )

toolButtonStyle : Qt::ToolButtonStyle

This property holds the style of toolbar buttons.

This property defines the style of all tool buttons that are added as QActions. Note that if you add a QToolButton with the addWidget() method, it will not get this button style.

The default is Qt::ToolButtonIconOnly.

Access functions:

Qt::ToolButtonStyle toolButtonStyle () const
void setToolButtonStyle ( Qt::ToolButtonStyle toolButtonStyle )

Notifier signal:

void toolButtonStyleChanged ( Qt::ToolButtonStyle toolButtonStyle )

Member Function Documentation

QToolBar::QToolBar ( const QString & title, QWidget * parent = 0 )

Constructs a QToolBar with the given parent.

The given window title identifies the toolbar and is shown in the context menu provided by QMainWindow.

See also setWindowTitle().

QToolBar::QToolBar ( QWidget * parent = 0 )

Constructs a QToolBar with the given parent.

QToolBar::~QToolBar ()

Destroys the toolbar.

QAction * QToolBar::actionAt ( const QPoint & p ) const

Returns the action at point p. This function returns zero if no action was found.

See also QWidget::childAt().

QAction * QToolBar::actionAt ( int x, int y ) const

This is an overloaded function.

Returns the action at the point x, y. This function returns zero if no action was found.

void QToolBar::actionEvent ( QActionEvent * event ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QWidget::actionEvent().

void QToolBar::actionTriggered ( QAction * action ) [signal]

This signal is emitted when an action in this toolbar is triggered. This happens when the action's tool button is pressed, or when the action is triggered in some other way outside the tool bar. The parameter holds the triggered action.

void QToolBar::addAction ( QAction * action )

This is an overloaded function.

Appends the action action to the toolbar's list of actions.

See also QMenu::addAction() and QWidget::addAction().

QAction * QToolBar::addAction ( const QString & text )

This is an overloaded function.

Creates a new action with the given text. This action is added to the end of the toolbar.

QAction * QToolBar::addAction ( const QIcon & icon, const QString & text )

This is an overloaded function.

Creates a new action with the given icon and text. This action is added to the end of the toolbar.

QAction * QToolBar::addAction ( const QString & text, const QObject * receiver, const char * member )

This is an overloaded function.

Creates a new action with the given text. This action is added to the end of the toolbar. The action's triggered() signal is connected to member in receiver.

QAction * QToolBar::addAction ( const QIcon & icon, const QString & text, const QObject * receiver, const char * member )

This is an overloaded function.

Creates a new action with the icon icon and text text. This action is added to the end of the toolbar. The action's triggered() signal is connected to member in receiver.

QAction * QToolBar::addSeparator ()

Adds a separator to the end of the toolbar.

See also insertSeparator().

QAction * QToolBar::addWidget ( QWidget * widget )

Adds the given widget to the toolbar as the toolbar's last item.

The toolbar takes ownership of widget.

If you add a QToolButton with this method, the tools bar's Qt::ToolButtonStyle will not be respected.

Note: You should use QAction::setVisible() to change the visibility of the widget. Using QWidget::setVisible(), QWidget::show() and QWidget::hide() does not work.

See also insertWidget().

void QToolBar::allowedAreasChanged ( Qt::ToolBarAreas allowedAreas ) [signal]

This signal is emitted when the collection of allowed areas for the toolbar is changed. The new areas in which the toolbar can be positioned are specified by allowedAreas.

See also allowedAreas.

void QToolBar::changeEvent ( QEvent * event ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QWidget::changeEvent().

void QToolBar::childEvent ( QChildEvent * event ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QObject::childEvent().

void QToolBar::clear ()

Removes all actions from the toolbar.

See also removeAction().

bool QToolBar::event ( QEvent * event ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QObject::event().

void QToolBar::iconSizeChanged ( const QSize & iconSize ) [signal]

This signal is emitted when the icon size is changed. The iconSize parameter holds the toolbar's new icon size.

See also iconSize and QMainWindow::iconSize.
