int QFont::legacyWeight() const

This function is deprecated since 6.0. We strongly advise against using it in new code.

Use weight() instead.

Returns the weight of the font converted to the non-standard font weight scale used in Qt 5 and earlier versions.

Since Qt 6, the OpenType standard's font weight scale is used instead of a non-standard scale. This requires conversion from values that use the old scale. For convenience, this function may be used when porting from code which uses the old weight scale.
