## Detailed Description

The QTextFragment class holds a piece of text in a QTextDocument with a single QTextCharFormat.

A text fragment describes a piece of text that is stored with a single character format. Text in which the character format changes can be represented by sequences of text fragments with different formats.

If the user edits the text in a fragment and introduces a different character format, the fragment's text will be split at each point where the format changes, and new fragments will be created. For example, changing the style of some text in the middle of a sentence will cause the fragment to be broken into three separate fragments: the first and third with the same format as before, and the second with the new style. The first fragment will contain the text from the beginning of the sentence, the second will contain the text from the middle, and the third takes the text from the end of the sentence.

A fragment's text and character format can be obtained with the text() and charFormat() functions. The length() function gives the length of the text in the fragment. position() gives the position in the document of the start of the fragment. To determine whether the fragment contains a particular position within the document, use the contains() function.

QTextDocument, Rich Text Document Structure

## Constructor & Destructor Documentation

 QTextFragment::QTextFragment ( )
inline

Creates a new empty text fragment.

 QTextFragment::QTextFragment ( const QTextFragment & other )
inline

Copies the content (text and format) of the other text fragment to this text fragment.

## Method Documentation

 QTextCharFormat QTextFragment::charFormat ( ) const

Returns the text fragment's character format.

text()
 int QTextFragment::charFormatIndex ( ) const

Returns an index into the document's internal list of character formats for the text fragment's character format.

QTextDocument::allFormats()
 bool QTextFragment::contains ( int position ) const

Returns true if the text fragment contains the text at the given position in the document, otherwise returns false.

 QList< QGlyphRun > QTextFragment::glyphRuns ( int from = -1, int length = -1 ) const

Returns the glyphs corresponding to length code points of this text fragment starting at position from. The positions of the glyphs are relative to the position of the QTextBlock layout. If from is less than 0 the glyphs will start at the beginning. If length is less than 0 the glyphs will stop at the end of the fragment.

QGlyphRun, QTextBlock::layout(), QTextLayout::position(), QPainter::drawGlyphRun()
 bool QTextFragment::isValid ( ) const
inline

Returns true if this is a valid text fragment (i.e. has a valid position in a document), otherwise returns false.

 int QTextFragment::length ( ) const

Returns the number of characters in the text fragment.

text()
 bool QTextFragment::operator!= ( const QTextFragment & other ) const
inline

Returns true if this text fragment is different (at a different position) from the other text fragment, otherwise returns false.

 bool QTextFragment::operator< ( const QTextFragment & other ) const
inline

Returns true if this text fragment appears earlier in the document than the other text fragment, otherwise returns false.

 QTextFragment & QTextFragment::operator= ( const QTextFragment & other )
inline

Copy assigns from other and returns a reference to this object.

 bool QTextFragment::operator== ( const QTextFragment & other ) const
inline

Returns true if this text fragment is the same (at the same position) as the other text fragment, otherwise returns false.

 int QTextFragment::position ( ) const

Returns the position of this text fragment in the document.

 QString QTextFragment::text ( ) const

Returns the text fragment's as plain text.
