Detailed Description

The QPaintEngineState class provides information about the active paint engine's current state.

QPaintEngineState records which properties that have changed since the last time the paint engine was updated, as well as their current value.

Which properties that have changed can at any time be retrieved using the state() function. This function returns an instance of the QPaintEngine::DirtyFlags type which stores an OR combination of QPaintEngine::DirtyFlag values. The QPaintEngine::DirtyFlag enum defines whether a property has changed since the last update or not.

If a property is marked with a dirty flag, its current value can be retrieved using the corresponding get function:

QPaintEngine::DirtyBrush

QPaintEngine::DirtyBrushOrigin

QPaintEngine::DirtyFont

QPaintEngine::DirtyTransform

QPaintEngine::DirtyClipEnabled

isClipEnabled()

QPaintEngine::DirtyPen

pen()

QPaintEngine::DirtyHints

renderHints()

The QPaintEngineState class also provide the painter() function which returns a pointer to the painter that is currently updating the paint engine.

An instance of this class, representing the current state of the active paint engine, is passed as argument to the QPaintEngine::updateState() function. The only situation in which you will have to use this class directly is when implementing your own paint engine.

Member Function Documentation

QBrush QPaintEngineState::backgroundBrush () const

Returns the background brush in the current paint engine state.

This variable should only be used when the state() returns a combination which includes the QPaintEngine::DirtyBackground flag.

See also state() and QPaintEngine::updateState().

Qt::BGMode QPaintEngineState::backgroundMode () const

Returns the background mode in the current paint engine state.

This variable should only be used when the state() returns a combination which includes the QPaintEngine::DirtyBackgroundMode flag.

See also state() and QPaintEngine::updateState().

QBrush QPaintEngineState::brush () const

Returns the brush in the current paint engine state.

This variable should only be used when the state() returns a combination which includes the QPaintEngine::DirtyBrush flag.

See also state() and QPaintEngine::updateState().

bool QPaintEngineState::brushNeedsResolving () const

Returns whether the coordinate of the fill have been specified as bounded by the current rendering operation and have to be resolved (about the currently rendered primitive).

This function was introduced in Qt 4.3.

QPointF QPaintEngineState::brushOrigin () const

Returns the brush origin in the current paint engine state.

This variable should only be used when the state() returns a combination which includes the QPaintEngine::DirtyBrushOrigin flag.

See also state() and QPaintEngine::updateState().

Qt::ClipOperation QPaintEngineState::clipOperation () const

Returns the clip operation in the current paint engine state.

This variable should only be used when the state() returns a combination which includes either the QPaintEngine::DirtyClipPath or the QPaintEngine::DirtyClipRegion flag.

See also state() and QPaintEngine::updateState().

QPainterPath QPaintEngineState::clipPath () const

See also state() and QPaintEngine::updateState().

QFont QPaintEngineState::font () const

Returns the font in the current paint engine state.

This variable should only be used when the state() returns a combination which includes the QPaintEngine::DirtyFont flag.

See also state() and QPaintEngine::updateState().

bool QPaintEngineState::isClipEnabled () const

Returns wether clipping is enabled or not in the current paint engine state.

This variable should only be used when the state() returns a combination which includes the QPaintEngine::DirtyClipEnabled flag.

See also state() and QPaintEngine::updateState().

qreal QPaintEngineState::opacity () const

Returns the opacity in the current paint engine state.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

QPainter * QPaintEngineState::painter () const

Returns a pointer to the painter currently updating the paint engine.

QPen QPaintEngineState::pen () const

This variable should only be used when the state() returns a combination which includes the QPaintEngine::DirtyPen flag.

See also state() and QPaintEngine::updateState().

bool QPaintEngineState::penNeedsResolving () const

Returns whether the coordinate of the stroke have been specified as bounded by the current rendering operation and have to be resolved (about the currently rendered primitive).

This function was introduced in Qt 4.3.

QPainter::RenderHints QPaintEngineState::renderHints () const

Returns the render hints in the current paint engine state.

This variable should only be used when the state() returns a combination which includes the QPaintEngine::DirtyHints flag.

See also state() and QPaintEngine::updateState().

QPaintEngine::DirtyFlags QPaintEngineState::state () const

Returns a combination of flags identifying the set of properties that need to be updated when updating the paint engine's state (i.e. during a call to the QPaintEngine::updateState() function).

See also QPaintEngine::updateState().

QTransform QPaintEngineState::transform () const

Returns the matrix in the current paint engine state.
