Detailed Description

The QStyleOptionTab class is used to describe the parameters for drawing a tab bar.

The QStyleOptionTab class is used for drawing several built-in Qt widgets including QTabBar and the panel for QTabWidget.

An instance of the QStyleOptionTab class has type SO_Tab and version 3. The type is used internally by 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 QStyleOption subclass and your own styles. The version is used by QStyleOption subclasses to implement extensions without breaking compatibility. If you use qstyleoption_cast(), you normally do not need to check it.

For an example demonstrating how style options can be used, see the Styles example.

Member Type Documentation

enum QStyleOptionTab::CornerWidget
flags QStyleOptionTab::CornerWidgets

These flags indicate the corner widgets in a tab.

ConstantValueDescription
QStyleOptionTab::NoCornerWidgets0x00There are no corner widgets
QStyleOptionTab::LeftCornerWidget0x01Left corner widget
QStyleOptionTab::RightCornerWidget0x02Right corner widget

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

See also cornerWidgets.

enum QStyleOptionTab::SelectedPosition

This enum describes the position of the selected tab. Some styles need to draw a tab differently depending on whether or not it is adjacent to the selected tab.

ConstantValueDescription
QStyleOptionTab::NotAdjacent0The tab is not adjacent to a selected tab (or is the selected tab).
QStyleOptionTab::NextIsSelected1The next tab (typically the tab on the right) is selected.
QStyleOptionTab::PreviousIsSelected2The previous tab (typically the tab on the left) is selected.

See also selectedPosition.

enum QStyleOptionTab::StyleOptionType

This enum is used to hold information about the type of the style option, and is defined for each QStyleOption subclass.

ConstantValueDescription
QStyleOptionTab::TypeSO_TabThe type of style option provided (SO_Tab for this class).

The type is used internally by 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 QStyleOption subclass and your own styles.

See also StyleOptionVersion.

enum QStyleOptionTab::StyleOptionVersion

This enum is used to hold information about the version of the style option, and is defined for each QStyleOption subclass.

ConstantValueDescription
QStyleOptionTab::Version33

The version is used by QStyleOption subclasses to implement extensions without breaking compatibility. If you use qstyleoption_cast(), you normally do not need to check it.

See also StyleOptionType.

enum QStyleOptionTab::TabFeature
flags QStyleOptionTab::TabFeatures

Describes the various features that a tab button can have.

ConstantValueDescription
QStyleOptionTab::None0x00A normal tab button.
QStyleOptionTab::HasFrame0x01The tab button is positioned on a tab frame

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

See also features.

enum QStyleOptionTab::TabPosition

This enum describes the position of the tab.

ConstantValueDescription
QStyleOptionTab::Beginning0The tab is the first tab in the tab bar.
QStyleOptionTab::Middle1The tab is neither the first nor the last tab in the tab bar.
QStyleOptionTab::End2The tab is the last tab in the tab bar.
QStyleOptionTab::OnlyOneTab3The tab is both the first and the last tab in the tab bar.
