Detailed Description

The QFontDialog class provides a dialog widget for selecting a font.

A font dialog is created through one of the static getFont() functions.

Examples:

 bool ok;
 QFont font = QFontDialog::getFont(
                 &ok, QFont("Helvetica [Cronyx]", 10), this);
 if (ok) {
     // the user clicked OK and font is set to the font the user selected
 } else {
     // the user canceled the dialog; font is set to the initial
     // value, in this case Helvetica [Cronyx], 10
 }

The dialog can also be used to set a widget's font directly:

 myWidget.setFont(QFontDialog::getFont(0, myWidget.font()));

If the user clicks OK the font they chose will be used for myWidget, and if they click Cancel the original font is used.

A font dialog in the Plastique widget style.

Member Type Documentation

enum QFontDialog::FontDialogOption
flags QFontDialog::FontDialogOptions

This enum specifies various options that affect the look and feel of a font dialog.

ConstantValueDescription
QFontDialog::NoButtons0x00000001Don't display OK and Cancel buttons. (Useful for "live dialogs".)
QFontDialog::DontUseNativeDialog0x00000002Use Qt's standard font dialog on the Mac instead of Apple's native font panel. (Currently, the native dialog is never used, but this is likely to change in future Qt releases.)

This enum was introduced in Qt 4.5.

The FontDialogOptions type is a typedef for QFlags<FontDialogOption>. It stores an OR combination of FontDialogOption values.

See also options, setOption(), and testOption().

Property Documentation

currentFont : QFont

This property holds the current font of the dialog.

This property was introduced in Qt 4.5.

Access functions:

QFont currentFont () const
void setCurrentFont ( const QFont & font )

Notifier signal:

void currentFontChanged ( const QFont & font )

options : FontDialogOptions

This property holds the various options that affect the look and feel of the dialog.

By default, all options are disabled.

Options should be set before showing the dialog. Setting them while the dialog is visible is not guaranteed to have an immediate effect on the dialog (depending on the option and on the platform).

This property was introduced in Qt 4.5.

Access functions:

FontDialogOptions options () const
void setOptions ( FontDialogOptions options )

See also setOption() and testOption().

Member Function Documentation

QFontDialog::QFontDialog ( QWidget * parent = 0 )

Constructs a standard font dialog.

Use setCurrentFont() to set the initial font attributes.

The parent parameter is passed to the QDialog constructor.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.5.

See also getFont().

QFontDialog::QFontDialog ( const QFont & initial, QWidget * parent = 0 )

Constructs a standard font dialog with the given parent and specified initial color.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.5.

void QFontDialog::changeEvent ( QEvent * e ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QWidget::changeEvent().

void QFontDialog::currentFontChanged ( const QFont & font ) [signal]

This signal is emitted when the current font is changed. The new font is specified in font.

The signal is emitted while a user is selecting a font. Ultimately, the chosen font may differ from the font currently selected.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.5.

See also currentFont, fontSelected(), and selectedFont().

void QFontDialog::done ( int result ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QDialog::done().

Closes the dialog and sets its result code to result. If this dialog is shown with exec(), done() causes the local event loop to finish, and exec() to return result.

See also QDialog::done().

void QFontDialog::fontSelected ( const QFont & font ) [signal]

This signal is emitted when a font has been selected. The selected font is specified in font.

The signal is only emitted when a user has chosen the final font to be used. It is not emitted while the user is changing the current font in the font dialog.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.5.

See also selectedFont(), currentFontChanged(), and currentFont.

QFont QFontDialog::getFont ( bool * ok, const QFont & initial, QWidget * parent, const QString & title, FontDialogOptions options ) [static]

Executes a modal font dialog and returns a font.

If the user clicks OK, the selected font is returned. If the user clicks Cancel, the initial font is returned.

The dialog is constructed with the given parent and the options specified in options. title is shown as the window title of the dialog and initial is the initially selected font. If the ok parameter is not-null, the value it refers to is set to true if the user clicks OK, and set to false if the user clicks Cancel.

Examples:

 bool ok;
 QFont font = QFontDialog::getFont(&ok, QFont("Times", 12), this);
 if (ok) {
     // font is set to the font the user selected
 } else {
     // the user canceled the dialog; font is set to the initial
     // value, in this case Times, 12.
 }

The dialog can also be used to set a widget's font directly:

 myWidget.setFont(QFontDialog::getFont(0, myWidget.font()));

In this example, if the user clicks OK the font they chose will be used, and if they click Cancel the original font is used.

Warning: Do not delete parent during the execution of the dialog. If you want to do this, you should create the dialog yourself using one of the QFontDialog constructors.

QFont QFontDialog::getFont ( bool * ok, const QFont & initial, QWidget * parent, const char * name ) [static]

Call getFont(ok, initial, parent) instead.

Warning: Do not delete parent during the execution of the dialog. If you want to do this, you should create the dialog yourself using one of the QFontDialog constructors.

The name parameter is ignored.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.5.

QFont QFontDialog::getFont ( bool * ok, QWidget * parent, const char * name ) [static]

Call getFont(ok, parent) instead.

Warning: Do not delete parent during the execution of the dialog. If you want to do this, you should create the dialog yourself using one of the QFontDialog constructors.

The name parameter is ignored.

QFont QFontDialog::getFont ( bool * ok, const QFont & initial, QWidget * parent, const QString & title ) [static]

This is an overloaded function.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.5.

QFont QFontDialog::getFont ( bool * ok, const QFont & initial, QWidget * parent = 0 ) [static]

This is an overloaded function.

QFont QFontDialog::getFont ( bool * ok, QWidget * parent = 0 ) [static]

This is an overloaded function.

Executes a modal font dialog and returns a font.

If the user clicks OK, the selected font is returned. If the user clicks Cancel, the Qt default font is returned.

The dialog is constructed with the given parent. If the ok parameter is not-null, the value it refers to is set to true if the user clicks OK, and false if the user clicks Cancel.

Example:

 bool ok;
 QFont font = QFontDialog::getFont(&ok, this);
 if (ok) {
     // font is set to the font the user selected
 } else {
     // the user canceled the dialog; font is set to the default
     // application font, QApplication::font()
 }

Warning: Do not delete parent during the execution of the dialog. If you want to do this, you should create the dialog yourself using one of the QFontDialog constructors.

void QFontDialog::open ( QObject * receiver, const char * member )

This is an overloaded function.

Opens the dialog and connects its fontSelected() signal to the slot specified by receiver and member.

The signal will be disconnected from the slot when the dialog is closed.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.5.

QFont QFontDialog::selectedFont () const

Returns the font that the user selected by clicking the OK or equivalent button.

Note: This font is not always the same as the font held by the currentFont property since the user can choose different fonts before finally selecting the one to use.

void QFontDialog::setOption ( FontDialogOption option, bool on = true )

Sets the given option to be enabled if on is true; otherwise, clears the given option.

See also options and testOption().

void QFontDialog::setVisible ( bool visible ) [virtual]

Reimplemented from QWidget::setVisible().

bool QFontDialog::testOption ( FontDialogOption option ) const

Returns true if the given option is enabled; otherwise, returns false.

See also options and setOption().
