Detailed Description

The QFontInfo class provides general information about fonts.

The QFontInfo class provides the same access functions as QFont, e.g. family(), pointSize(), italic(), weight(), fixedPitch(), styleHint() etc. But whilst the QFont access functions return the values that were set, a QFontInfo object returns the values that apply to the font that will actually be used to draw the text.

For example, when the program asks for a 25pt Courier font on a machine that has a non-scalable 24pt Courier font, QFont will (normally) use the 24pt Courier for rendering. In this case, QFont::pointSize() returns 25 and QFontInfo::pointSize() returns 24.

There are three ways to create a QFontInfo object.

  1. Calling the QFontInfo constructor with a QFont creates a font info object for a screen-compatible font, i.e. the font can not be a printer font. If the font is changed later, the font info object is not updated.(Note: If you use a printer font the values returned may be inaccurate. Printer fonts are not always accessible so the nearest screen font is used if a printer font is supplied.)
  2. QWidget::fontInfo() returns the font info for a widget's font. This is equivalent to calling QFontInfo(widget->font()). If the widget's font is changed later, the font info object is not updated.
  3. QPainter::fontInfo() returns the font info for a painter's current font. If the painter's font is changed later, the font info object is not updated.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

QFontInfo::QFontInfo ( const QFont font)

Constructs a font info object for font.

The font must be screen-compatible, i.e. a font you use when drawing text in widgets or pixmaps, not QPicture or QPrinter.

The font info object holds the information for the font that is passed in the constructor at the time it is created, and is not updated if the font's attributes are changed later.

Use QPainter::fontInfo() to get the font info when painting. This will give correct results also when painting on paint device that is not screen-compatible.

QFontInfo::QFontInfo ( const QFontInfo &  fi)

Constructs a copy of fi.

QFontInfo::~QFontInfo ( )

Destroys the font info object.

Method Documentation

bool QFontInfo::bold ( ) const
inline

Returns true if weight() would return a value greater than QFont::Normal, otherwise returns false.

weight(), QFont::bold()
bool QFontInfo::exactMatch ( ) const

Returns true if the matched window system font is exactly the same as the one specified by the font, otherwise returns false.

See also
QFont::exactMatch()
QString QFontInfo::family ( ) const

Returns the family name of the matched window system font.

See also
QFont::family()
bool QFontInfo::fixedPitch ( ) const

Returns the fixed pitch value of the matched window system font.

See also
QFont::fixedPitch()
bool QFontInfo::italic ( ) const

Returns the italic value of the matched window system font.

See also
QFont::italic()
QFontInfo & QFontInfo::operator= ( const QFontInfo &  fi)

Assigns the font info in fi.

bool QFontInfo::overline ( ) const

Documentation pending.

int QFontInfo::pixelSize ( ) const

Returns the pixel size of the matched window system font.

See also
QFont::pointSize()
int QFontInfo::pointSize ( ) const

Returns the point size of the matched window system font.

See also
pointSizeF(), QFont::pointSize()
qreal QFontInfo::pointSizeF ( ) const

Returns the point size of the matched window system font.

See also
QFont::pointSizeF()
bool QFontInfo::strikeOut ( ) const

Documentation pending.

QFont::Style QFontInfo::style ( ) const

Returns the style value of the matched window system font.

See also
QFont::style()
QFont::StyleHint QFontInfo::styleHint ( ) const

Returns the style of the matched window system font.

Currently only returns the style hint set in QFont.

See also
QFont::styleHint(), QFont::StyleHint
QString QFontInfo::styleName ( ) const

Returns the style name of the matched window system font on system that supports it.

See also
QFont::styleName()
void QFontInfo::swap ( QFontInfo &  other)
inline

Swaps the font info other with this font info. This operation is very fast and never fails.

bool QFontInfo::underline ( ) const

Documentation pending.

int QFontInfo::weight ( ) const

Returns the weight of the matched window system font.
