Detailed Description

A progress indicator is used to give the user an indication of the progress of an operation and to reassure them that the application is still running.

The progress indicator uses the concept of steps. It is set up by specifying the minimum and maximum possible step values, and it will display the percentage of steps that have been completed when you later give it the current step value. The percentage is calculated by dividing the progress (value() - minimum()) divided by maximum() - minimum().

The minimum and maximum number of steps can be specified by calling setMinimum() and setMaximum(). The current number of steps is set with setValue(). The progress indicator can be rewound to the beginning with reset().

If minimum and maximum both are set to 0, the indicator shows up as a busy (indeterminate) indicator instead of a percentage of steps. This is useful when it is not possible to determine the number of steps.

Note: The final appearance of the progress indicator varies depending on the active Windows theme.

Property Documentation

maximum : int

This property holds the maximum value of the progress indicator

The default value is 100.

Access functions:

int maximum() const
void setMaximum(int maximum)

Notifier signal:

void maximumChanged(int maximum)

minimum : int

This property holds the minimum value of the progress indicator

The default value is 0.

Access functions:

int minimum() const
void setMinimum(int minimum)

Notifier signal:

void minimumChanged(int minimum)

paused : bool

This property holds whether the progress indicator is paused.

The default value is false.

The final appearance of a paused progress indicator depends on the active Windows theme. Typically, a paused progress indicator turns yellow to indicate that the progress is currently paused. Unlike a stopped progress indicator, a paused progress should not be used to indicate an error.

Access functions:

bool isPaused() const
void setPaused(bool paused)

Notifier signal:

void pausedChanged(bool paused)

See also pause() and resume().

stopped : const bool

This property holds whether the progress indicator is stopped.

The default value is false.

The final appearance of a stopped progress indicator depends on the active Windows theme. Typically, a stopped progress indicator turns red to indicate that the progress is currently stopped. Unlike a paused progress indicator, a stopped progress may be used to indicate an error.

Access functions:

bool isStopped() const

Notifier signal:

void stoppedChanged(bool stopped)

See also stop() and resume().

value : int

This property holds the current value of the progress indicator

The default value is 0.

Access functions:

int value() const
void setValue(int value)

Notifier signal:

void valueChanged(int value)

visible : bool

This property holds whether the progress indicator is visible.

The default value is false.

Access functions:

bool isVisible() const
void setVisible(bool visible)

Notifier signal:

void visibilityChanged(bool visible)
