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. Note that to describe the parameters necessary for drawing a frame in Qt 4.1 or above, you must use the QStyleOptionFrameV2 subclass.

An instance of the QStyleOptiontabV2 class has type SO_Tab and version 1. 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.

If you create your own QStyle subclass, you should handle both QStyleOptionTab and QStyleOptionTabV2.

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

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.

QStyleOptionTab.NextIsSelected 1 The next tab (typically the tab on the right) is selected.
QStyleOptionTab.PreviousIsSelected 2 The previous tab (typically the tab on the left) is selected.

See also selectedPosition.

QStyleOptionTab.StyleOptionType

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

Constant Value Description
QStyleOptionTab.Type SO_Tab The 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.

QStyleOptionTab.StyleOptionVersion

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

Constant Value Description
QStyleOptionTab.Version 1 1

Constant Value Description
QStyleOptionTab.Beginning 0 The tab is the first tab in the tab bar.
QStyleOptionTab.Middle 1 The tab is neither the first nor the last tab in the tab bar.
