Detailed Description

QPrintPreviewDialog uses a QPrintPreviewWidget internally, and the purpose of QPrintPreviewWidget is to make it possible to embed the preview into other widgets. It also makes it possible to build a different user interface around it than the default one provided with QPrintPreviewDialog.

Using QPrintPreviewWidget is straightforward:

  1. Create the QPrintPreviewWidget

    Construct the QPrintPreviewWidget either by passing in an existing QPrinter object, or have QPrintPreviewWidget create a default constructed QPrinter object for you.

  2. Connect the paintRequested() signal to a slot.

    When the widget needs to generate a set of preview pages, a paintRequested() signal will be emitted from the widget. Connect a slot to this signal, and draw onto the QPrinter passed in as a signal parameter. Call QPrinter::newPage(), to start a new page in the preview.

Member Type Documentation

enum QPrintPreviewWidget::ViewMode

This enum is used to describe the view mode of the preview widget.

Constant Value Description
QPrintPreviewWidget::SinglePageView 0 A mode where single pages in the preview is viewed.
QPrintPreviewWidget::FacingPagesView 1 A mode where the facing pages in the preview is viewed.
QPrintPreviewWidget::AllPagesView 2 A view mode where all the pages in the preview is viewed.

enum QPrintPreviewWidget::ZoomMode

This enum is used to describe zoom mode of the preview widget.

Constant Value Description
QPrintPreviewWidget::CustomZoom 0 The zoom is set to a custom zoom value.
QPrintPreviewWidget::FitToWidth 1 This mode fits the current page to the width of the view.
QPrintPreviewWidget::FitInView 2 This mode fits the current page inside the view.

Member Function Documentation

QPrintPreviewWidget::QPrintPreviewWidget(QWidget *parent = nullptr, Qt::WindowFlags flags = Qt::WindowFlags())

This is an overloaded function.

This will cause QPrintPreviewWidget to create an internal, default constructed QPrinter object, which will be used to generate the preview.

QPrintPreviewWidget::QPrintPreviewWidget(QPrinter *printer, QWidget *parent = nullptr, Qt::WindowFlags flags = Qt::WindowFlags())

Constructs a QPrintPreviewWidget based on printer and with parent as the parent widget. The widget flags flags are passed on to the QWidget constructor.

See also QWidget::setWindowFlags().

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::fitInView()

This is a convenience function and is the same as calling setZoomMode(QPrintPreviewWidget::FitInView).

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::fitToWidth()

This is a convenience function and is the same as calling setZoomMode(QPrintPreviewWidget::FitToWidth).

[signal] void QPrintPreviewWidget::paintRequested(QPrinter *printer)

This signal is emitted when the preview widget needs to generate a set of preview pages. printer is the printer associated with this preview widget.

[signal] void QPrintPreviewWidget::previewChanged()

This signal is emitted whenever the preview widget has changed some internal state, such as the orientation.

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::print()

Prints the preview to the printer associated with the preview.

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setAllPagesViewMode()

This is a convenience function and is the same as calling setViewMode(QPrintPreviewWidget::AllPagesView).

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setCurrentPage(int page)

Sets the current page in the preview. This will cause the view to skip to the beginning of page.

See also currentPage().

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setFacingPagesViewMode()

This is a convenience function and is the same as calling setViewMode(QPrintPreviewWidget::FacingPagesView).

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setLandscapeOrientation()

This is a convenience function and is the same as calling setOrientation(QPrinter::Landscape).

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setOrientation(QPrinter::Orientation orientation)

Sets the current orientation to orientation. This value will be set on the QPrinter object associated with the preview.

See also orientation().

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setPortraitOrientation()

This is a convenience function and is the same as calling setOrientation(QPrinter::Portrait).

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setSinglePageViewMode()

This is a convenience function and is the same as calling setViewMode(QPrintPreviewWidget::SinglePageView).

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setViewMode(QPrintPreviewWidget::ViewMode mode)

Sets the view mode to mode. The default view mode is SinglePageView.

See also viewMode().

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setZoomFactor(qreal factor)

Sets the zoom factor of the view to factor. For example, a value of 1.0 indicates an unscaled view, which is approximately the size the view will have on paper. A value of 0.5 will halve the size of the view, while a value of 2.0 will double the size of the view.

See also zoomFactor().

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setZoomMode(QPrintPreviewWidget::ZoomMode zoomMode)

Sets the zoom mode to zoomMode. The default zoom mode is FitInView.

See also zoomMode(), viewMode(), and setViewMode().

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::updatePreview()

This function updates the preview, which causes the paintRequested() signal to be emitted.

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::zoomIn(qreal factor = 1.1)

Zooms the current view in by factor. The default value for factor is 1.1, which means the view will be scaled up by 10%.

[slot] void QPrintPreviewWidget::zoomOut(qreal factor = 1.1)

Zooms the current view out by factor. The default value for factor is 1.1, which means the view will be scaled down by 10%.

[virtual] QPrintPreviewWidget::~QPrintPreviewWidget()

Destroys the QPrintPreviewWidget.

int QPrintPreviewWidget::currentPage() const

Returns the currently viewed page in the preview.

See also setCurrentPage().

QPrinter::Orientation QPrintPreviewWidget::orientation() const

Returns the current orientation of the preview. This value is obtained from the QPrinter object associated with the preview.

See also setOrientation().

int QPrintPreviewWidget::pageCount() const

Returns the number of pages in the preview.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.6.

[override virtual] void QPrintPreviewWidget::setVisible(bool visible)

Reimplements: QWidget::setVisible(bool visible).

QPrintPreviewWidget::ViewMode QPrintPreviewWidget::viewMode() const

Returns the current view mode. The default view mode is SinglePageView.

See also setViewMode().

qreal QPrintPreviewWidget::zoomFactor() const

Returns the zoom factor of the view.

See also setZoomFactor().

QPrintPreviewWidget::ZoomMode QPrintPreviewWidget::zoomMode() const

Returns the current zoom mode.

See also setZoomMode(), viewMode(), and setViewMode().
