Detailed Description

The PySide.QtGui.QTextLength class encapsulates the different types of length used in a PySide.QtGui.QTextDocument .

When we specify a value for the length of an element in a text document, we often need to provide some other information so that the length is used in the way we expect. For example, when we specify a table width, the value can represent a fixed number of pixels, or it can be a percentage value. This information changes both the meaning of the value and the way it is used.

Generally, this class is used to specify table widths. These can be specified either as a fixed amount of pixels, as a percentage of the containing frame’s width, or by a variable width that allows it to take up just the space it requires.

class PySide.QtGui.QTextLength
class PySide.QtGui.QTextLength(type, value)
class PySide.QtGui.QTextLength(QTextLength)

Constructs a new length object which represents a variable size.

Constructs a new length object of the given type and value .


This enum describes the different types a length object can have.

Constant Description
QTextLength.VariableLength The width of the object is variable
QTextLength.FixedLength The width of the object is fixed
QTextLength.PercentageLength The width of the object is in percentage of the maximum width
Return type:PySide.QtCore.bool

Returns true if this text length is different from the other text length.

Return type:PySide.QtCore.bool

Returns true if this text length is the same as the other text length.

Return type:PySide.QtCore.qreal

Returns the constraint value that is specific for the type of the length. If the length is QTextLength.PercentageLength then the raw value is in percent, in the range of 0 to 100. If the length is QTextLength.FixedLength then that fixed amount is returned. For variable lengths, zero is returned.

Return type:PySide.QtGui.QTextLength.Type

Returns the type of this length object.

Return type:PySide.QtCore.qreal
