Detailed Description

The PySide.QtGui.QStyleOptionToolBoxV2 class is used to describe the parameters necessary for drawing a frame in Qt 4.3 or above.

PySide.QtGui.QStyleOptionToolBoxV2 inherits PySide.QtGui.QStyleOptionToolBox which is used for drawing the tabs in a PySide.QtGui.QToolBox .

An instance of the PySide.QtGui.QStyleOptionToolBoxV2 class has type SO_ToolBox and version 2. The type is used internally by PySide.QtGui.QStyleOption , its subclasses, and qstyleoption_cast() to determine the type of style option. In general you do not need to worry about this unless you want to create your own PySide.QtGui.QStyleOption subclass and your own styles. The version is used by PySide.QtGui.QStyleOption subclasses to implement extensions without breaking compatibility. If you use qstyleoption_cast() , you normally do not need to check it.

If you create your own PySide.QtGui.QStyle subclass, you should handle both PySide.QtGui.QStyleOptionToolBox and PySide.QtGui.QStyleOptionToolBoxV2 .

Constructs a PySide.QtGui.QStyleOptionToolBoxV2 copy of the other style option which can be either of the PySide.QtGui.QStyleOptionToolBoxV2 or PySide.QtGui.QStyleOptionToolBox types.

If the other style option’s version is 1, the new style option’s position value is set to QStyleOptionToolBoxV2.Beginning and selectedPosition is set to QStyleOptionToolBoxV2.NotAdjacent . If its version is 2, the position selectedPosition values are simply copied to the new style option.
