Detailed Description

The QVector4D class represents a vector or vertex in 4D space.

The QVector4D class can also be used to represent vertices in 4D space. We therefore do not need to provide a separate vertex class.

Note: By design values in the QVector4D instance are stored as float. This means that on platforms where the qreal arguments to QVector4D functions are represented by double values, it is possible to lose precision.

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

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.

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.
