Detailed Description

The QAbstractSlider class provides an integer value within a range.

The class is designed as a common super class for widgets like QScrollBar, QSlider and QDial.

Here are the main properties of the class:

  1. value: The bounded integer that QAbstractSlider maintains.
  2. minimum: The lowest possible value.
  3. maximum: The highest possible value.
  4. singleStep: The smaller of two natural steps that an abstract sliders provides and typically corresponds to the user pressing an arrow key.
  5. pageStep: The larger of two natural steps that an abstract slider provides and typically corresponds to the user pressing PageUp or PageDown.
  6. tracking: Whether slider tracking is enabled.
  7. sliderPosition: The current position of the slider. If tracking is enabled (the default), this is identical to value.

Unity (1) may be viewed as a third step size. setValue() lets you set the current value to any integer in the allowed range, not just minimum() + n * singleStep() for integer values of n. Some widgets may allow the user to set any value at all; others may just provide multiples of singleStep() or pageStep().

QAbstractSlider emits a comprehensive set of signals as follows:

SignalEmitted when
valueChanged()the value has changed. The tracking determines whether this signal is emitted during user interaction.
sliderPressed()the user starts to drag the slider.
sliderMoved()the user drags the slider.
sliderReleased()the user releases the slider.
actionTriggered()a slider action was triggered.
rangeChanged()a the range has changed.

QAbstractSlider provides a virtual sliderChange() function that is well suited for updating the on-screen representation of sliders. By calling triggerAction(), subclasses trigger slider actions. Two helper functions QStyle::sliderPositionFromValue() and QStyle::sliderValueFromPosition() help subclasses and styles to map screen coordinates to logical range values.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

QAbstractSlider::QAbstractSlider ( QWidget parent = nullptr)
explicit

Constructs an abstract slider.

The parent argument is sent to the QWidget constructor.

The minimum defaults to 0, the maximum to 99, with a singleStep size of 1 and a pageStep size of 10, and an initial value of 0.

QAbstractSlider::~QAbstractSlider ( )

Destroys the slider.

Method Documentation

void QAbstractSlider::actionTriggered ( int  action)
signal

This signal is emitted when the slider action action is triggered. Actions are SliderSingleStepAdd, SliderSingleStepSub, SliderPageStepAdd, SliderPageStepSub, SliderToMinimum, SliderToMaximum, and SliderMove.

When the signal is emitted, the sliderPosition has been adjusted according to the action, but the value has not yet been propagated (meaning the valueChanged() signal was not yet emitted), and the visual display has not been updated. In slots connected to this signal you can thus safely adjust any action by calling setSliderPosition() yourself, based on both the action and the slider's value.

void QAbstractSlider::sliderChange ( SliderChange  change)
protectedvirtual

Reimplement this virtual function to track slider changes such as SliderRangeChange, SliderOrientationChange, SliderStepsChange, or SliderValueChange. The default implementation only updates the display and ignores the change parameter.

Reimplemented in QDial, and QScrollBar.

void QAbstractSlider::sliderMoved ( int  pos)
signal

This signal is emitted when sliderDown is true and the slider moves. This usually happens when the user is dragging the slider. The pos is the new slider position. This signal is emitted even when tracking is turned off.

void QAbstractSlider::sliderPressed ( )
signal

This signal is emitted when the user presses the slider with the mouse, or programmatically when setSliderDown(true) is called.

sliderReleased(), sliderMoved(), isSliderDown()
void QAbstractSlider::sliderReleased ( )
signal

This signal is emitted when the user releases the slider with the mouse, or programmatically when setSliderDown(false) is called.

Reimplemented from QObject::timerEvent().

void QAbstractSlider::triggerAction ( SliderAction  action)

Triggers a slider action. Possible actions are SliderSingleStepAdd, SliderSingleStepSub, SliderPageStepAdd, SliderPageStepSub, SliderToMinimum, SliderToMaximum, and SliderMove.

Reimplemented from QWidget.

Reimplemented in QScrollBar.

Property Documentation

QAbstractSlider::invertedAppearance

This property holds whether or not a slider shows its values inverted.

If this property is false (the default), the minimum and maximum will be shown in its classic position for the inherited widget. If the value is true, the minimum and maximum appear at their opposite location.

Note: This property makes most sense for sliders and dials. For scroll bars, the visual effect of the scroll bar subcontrols depends on whether or not the styles understand inverted appearance; most styles ignore this property for scroll bars.

PropertiesClass Methods
read invertedAppearance
write setInvertedAppearance
QAbstractSlider::invertedControls

This property holds whether or not the slider inverts its wheel and key events.

If this property is false, scrolling the mouse wheel "up" and using keys like page up will increase the slider's value towards its maximum. Otherwise pressing page up will move value towards the slider's minimum.

PropertiesClass Methods
read invertedControls
write setInvertedControls
QAbstractSlider::maximum

This property holds the slider's maximum value.

When setting this property, the minimum is adjusted if necessary to ensure that the range remains valid. Also the slider's current value is adjusted to be within the new range.

PropertiesClass Methods
read maximum
write setMaximum
QAbstractSlider::minimum

This property holds the slider's minimum value.

When setting this property, the maximum is adjusted if necessary to ensure that the range remains valid. Also the slider's current value is adjusted to be within the new range.

PropertiesClass Methods
read minimum
write setMinimum
QAbstractSlider::orientation

This property holds the orientation of the slider.

The orientation must be Qt::Vertical (the default) or Qt::Horizontal.

PropertiesClass Methods
read orientation
write setOrientation
QAbstractSlider::pageStep

This property holds the page step.

The larger of two natural steps that an abstract slider provides and typically corresponds to the user pressing PageUp or PageDown.

See also
singleStep
PropertiesClass Methods
read pageStep
write setPageStep
QAbstractSlider::singleStep

This property holds the single step.

The smaller of two natural steps that an abstract sliders provides and typically corresponds to the user pressing an arrow key.

If the property is modified during an auto repeating key event, behavior is undefined.

See also
pageStep
PropertiesClass Methods
read singleStep
write setSingleStep
QAbstractSlider::sliderDown

This property holds whether the slider is pressed down.

The property is set by subclasses in order to let the abstract slider know whether or not tracking has any effect.

Changing the slider down property emits the sliderPressed() and sliderReleased() signals.

PropertiesClass Methods
read isSliderDown
write setSliderDown
designable true
QAbstractSlider::sliderPosition

This property holds the current slider position.

If tracking is enabled (the default), this is identical to value.

PropertiesClass Methods
read sliderPosition
write setSliderPosition
notify sliderMoved
QAbstractSlider::tracking

This property holds whether slider tracking is enabled.

If tracking is enabled (the default), the slider emits the valueChanged() signal while the slider is being dragged. If tracking is disabled, the slider emits the valueChanged() signal only when the user releases the slider.

See also
sliderDown
PropertiesClass Methods
read hasTracking
write setTracking
QAbstractSlider::value

This property holds the slider's current value.

The slider forces the value to be within the legal range: minimum <= value <= maximum.

Changing the value also changes the sliderPosition.

PropertiesClass Methods
read value
write setValue
notify valueChanged
user true
