The Qt namespace contains miscellaneous identifiers used throughout the Qt library.
For a QEvent.Shortcut event to occur, the shortcut’s key sequence must be entered by the user in a context where the shortcut is active. The possible contexts are these:
|Qt.WidgetShortcut||The shortcut is active when its parent widget has focus.|
|Qt.WidgetWithChildrenShortcut||The shortcut is active when its parent widget, or any of its children has focus. Children which are top-level widgets, except pop-ups, are not affected by this shortcut context.|
|Qt.WindowShortcut||The shortcut is active when its parent widget is a logical subwidget of the active top-level window.|
|Qt.ApplicationShortcut||The shortcut is active when one of the applications windows are active.|
This enum describes the state of checkable items, controls, and widgets.
|Qt.Unchecked||The item is unchecked.|
|Qt.PartiallyChecked||The item is partially checked. Items in hierarchical models may be partially checked if some, but not all, of their children are checked.|
|Qt.Checked||The item is checked.|
PySide.QtGui.QCheckBox Qt.ItemFlags Qt.ItemDataRole
This enum type defines the various policies a widget can have with respect to acquiring keyboard focus.
|Qt.TabFocus||the widget accepts focus by tabbing.|
|Qt.ClickFocus||the widget accepts focus by clicking.|
|Qt.StrongFocus||the widget accepts focus by both tabbing and clicking. On Mac OS X this will also be indicate that the widget accepts tab focus when in ‘Text/List focus mode’.|
|Qt.WheelFocus||like Qt.StrongFocus plus the widget accepts focus by using the mouse wheel.|
|Qt.NoFocus||the widget does not accept focus.|
This enum type describes the standard gestures.
|Qt.TapGesture||A Tap gesture.|
|Qt.TapAndHoldGesture||A Tap-And-Hold (Long-Tap) gesture.|
|Qt.PanGesture||A Pan gesture.|
|Qt.PinchGesture||A Pinch gesture.|
|Qt.SwipeGesture||A Swipe gesture.|
|Qt.CustomGesture||A flag that can be used to test if the gesture is a user-defined gesture ID.|
User-defined gestures are registered with the QGestureRecognizer.registerRecognizer() function which generates a custom gesture ID with the Qt.CustomGesture flag set.
PySide.QtGui.QGesture QWidget.grabGesture() QGraphicsObject.grabGesture()
This enum was introduced or modified in Qt 4.6
|Qt.CopyAction||Copy the data to the target.|
|Qt.MoveAction||Move the data from the source to the target.|
|Qt.LinkAction||Create a link from the source to the target.|
|Qt.IgnoreAction||Ignore the action (do nothing with the data).|
|Qt.TargetMoveAction||On Windows, this value is used when the ownership of the D&D data should be taken over by the target application, i.e., the source application should not delete the data. .. raw:: html <br /> On X11 this value is used to do a move. .. raw:: html <br /> TargetMoveAction is not used on the Mac.|
This enum type is used to specify various window-system properties for the widget. They are fairly unusual but necessary in a few cases. Some of these flags depend on whether the underlying window manager supports them.
The main types are
|Qt.Widget||This is the default type for PySide.QtGui.QWidget . Widgets of this type are child widgets if they have a parent, and independent windows if they have no parent. See also Qt.Window and Qt.SubWindow .|
|Qt.Window||Indicates that the widget is a window, usually with a window system frame and a title bar, irrespective of whether the widget has a parent or not. Note that it is not possible to unset this flag if the widget does not have a parent.|
|Qt.Dialog||Indicates that the widget is a window that should be decorated as a dialog (i.e., typically no maximize or minimize buttons in the title bar). This is the default type for PySide.QtGui.QDialog . If you want to use it as a modal dialog, it should be launched from another window, or have a parent and used with the QWidget.windowModality property. If you make it modal, the dialog will prevent other top-level windows in the application from getting any input. We refer to a top-level window that has a parent as a secondary window.|
|Qt.Sheet||Indicates that the window is a Macintosh sheet. Since using a sheet implies window modality, the recommended way is to use QWidget.setWindowModality() , or QDialog.open() , instead.|
|Qt.Drawer||Indicates that the widget is a Macintosh drawer.|
|Qt.Popup||Indicates that the widget is a pop-up top-level window, i.e. that it is modal, but has a window system frame appropriate for pop-up menus.|
|Qt.Tool||Indicates that the widget is a tool window. A tool window is often a small window with a smaller than usual title bar and decoration, typically used for collections of tool buttons. If there is a parent, the tool window will always be kept on top of it. If there isn’t a parent, you may consider using Qt.WindowStaysOnTopHint as well. If the window system supports it, a tool window can be decorated with a somewhat lighter frame. It can also be combined with Qt.FramelessWindowHint . .. raw:: html <br /> .. raw:: html <br /> On Mac OS X, tool windows correspond to the Floating class of windows. This means that the window lives on a level above normal windows; it impossible to put a normal window on top of it. By default, tool windows will disappear when the application is inactive. This can be controlled by the Qt.WA_MacAlwaysShowToolWindow attribute.|
|Qt.ToolTip||Indicates that the widget is a tooltip. This is used internally to implement tooltips .|
|Qt.SplashScreen||Indicates that the window is a splash screen. This is the default type for PySide.QtGui.QSplashScreen .|
|Qt.Desktop||Indicates that this widget is the desktop. This is the type for PySide.QtGui.QDesktopWidget .|
|Qt.SubWindow||Indicates that this widget is a sub-window, such as a PySide.QtGui.QMdiSubWindow widget.|
There are also a number of flags which you can use to customize the appearance of top-level windows. These have no effect on other windows:
|Qt.MSWindowsFixedSizeDialogHint||Gives the window a thin dialog border on Windows. This style is traditionally used for fixed-size dialogs.|
|Qt.MSWindowsOwnDC||Gives the window its own display context on Windows.|
|Qt.X11BypassWindowManagerHint||Bypass the window manager completely. This results in a borderless window that is not managed at all (i.e., no keyboard input unless you call QWidget.activateWindow() manually).|
|Qt.FramelessWindowHint||Produces a borderless window. The user cannot move or resize a borderless window via the window system. On X11, the result of the flag is dependent on the window manager and its ability to understand Motif and/or NETWM hints. Most existing modern window managers can handle this.|
The CustomizeWindowHint flag is used to enable customization of the window controls. This flag must be set to allow the WindowTitleHint , WindowSystemMenuHint , WindowMinimizeButtonHint , WindowMaximizeButtonHint and WindowCloseButtonHint flags to be changed.
|Qt.CustomizeWindowHint||Turns off the default window title hints.|
|Qt.WindowTitleHint||Gives the window a title bar.|
|Qt.WindowSystemMenuHint||Adds a window system menu, and possibly a close button (for example on Mac). If you need to hide or show a close button, it is more portable to use WindowCloseButtonHint.|
|Qt.WindowMinimizeButtonHint||Adds a minimize button. On some platforms this implies Qt.WindowSystemMenuHint for it to work.|
|Qt.WindowMaximizeButtonHint||Adds a maximize button. On some platforms this implies Qt.WindowSystemMenuHint for it to work.|
|Qt.WindowMinMaxButtonsHint||Adds a minimize and a maximize button. On some platforms this implies Qt.WindowSystemMenuHint for it to work.|
|Qt.WindowCloseButtonHint||Adds a close button. On some platforms this implies Qt.WindowSystemMenuHint for it to work.|
|Qt.WindowContextHelpButtonHint||Adds a context help button to dialogs. On some platforms this implies Qt.WindowSystemMenuHint for it to work.|
|Qt.MacWindowToolBarButtonHint||On Mac OS X adds a tool bar button (i.e., the oblong button that is on the top right of windows that have toolbars).|
|Qt.BypassGraphicsProxyWidget||Prevents the window and its children from automatically embedding themselves into a PySide.QtGui.QGraphicsProxyWidget if the parent widget is already embedded. You can set this flag if you want your widget to always be a toplevel widget on the desktop, regardless of whether the parent widget is embedded in a scene or not.|
|Qt.WindowStaysOnTopHint||Informs the window system that the window should stay on top of all other windows. Note that on some window managers on X11 you also have to pass Qt.X11BypassWindowManagerHint for this flag to work correctly.|
|Qt.WindowStaysOnBottomHint||Informs the window system that the window should stay on bottom of all other windows. Note that on X11 this hint will work only in window managers that support _NET_WM_STATE_BELOW atom. If a window always on the bottom has a parent, the parent will also be left on the bottom. This window hint is currently not implemented for Mac OS X.|
|Qt.WindowOkButtonHint||Adds an OK button to the window decoration of a dialog. Only supported for Windows CE.|
|Qt.WindowCancelButtonHint||Adds a Cancel button to the window decoration of a dialog. Only supported for Windows CE.|
|Qt.WindowSoftkeysVisibleHint||Makes softkeys visible when widget is fullscreen. Only supported for Symbian.|
|Qt.WindowSoftkeysRespondHint||Makes softkeys to receive key events even when invisible. With this hint the softkey actions are triggered even the softkeys are invisible i.e. the window is displayed with showFullscreen(). Only supported for Symbian.|

QWidget.windowFlags Window Flags Example
|Qt.TextDate||The default Qt format, which includes the day and month name, the day number in the month, and the year in full. The day and month names will be short, localized names. This is basically equivalent to using the date format string, “ddd MMM d yyyy”. See QDate.toString() for more information.|
|Qt.ISODate||ISO 8601 extended format: either YYYY-MM-DD for dates or YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS, YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSTZD (e.g., 1997-07-16T19:20:30+01:00) for combined dates and times.|
|Qt.SystemLocaleShortDate||The short format used by the operating system .|
|Qt.SystemLocaleLongDate||The long format used by the operating system .|
|Qt.DefaultLocaleShortDate||The short format specified by the application's locale .|
|Qt.DefaultLocaleLongDate||The long format used by the application's locale .|
|Qt.SystemLocaleDate||This enum value is deprecated. Use Qt.SystemLocaleShortDate instead (or Qt.SystemLocaleLongDate if you want long dates).|
|Qt.LocaleDate||This enum value is deprecated. Use Qt.DefaultLocaleShortDate instead (or Qt.DefaultLocaleLongDate if you want long dates).|
|Qt.LocalDate||This enum value is deprecated. Use Qt.SystemLocaleShortDate instead (or Qt.SystemLocaleLongDate if you want long dates).|
For ISODate formats, each Y , M and D represents a single digit of the year, month and day used to specify the date. Each H , M and S represents a single digit of the hour, minute and second used to specify the time. The presence of a literal T character is used to separate the date and time when both are specified.
This enum is used in widgets that can display both plain text and rich text, e.g. PySide.QtGui.QLabel . It is used for deciding whether a text string should be interpreted as one or the other. This is normally done by passing one of the enum values to a setTextFormat() function.
|Qt.PlainText||The text string is interpreted as a plain text string.|
|Qt.RichText||The text string is interpreted as a rich text string.|
|Qt.AutoText||The text string is interpreted as for Qt.RichText if Qt.mightBeRichText() returns true, otherwise as Qt.PlainText .|
|Qt.LogText||A special, limited text format which is only used by Q3TextEdit in an optimized mode.|
This enum type defines the pen join styles supported by Qt, i.e. which joins between two connected lines can be drawn using PySide.QtGui.QPainter .
|Qt.MiterJoin||The outer edges of the lines are extended to meet at an angle, and this area is filled.|
|Qt.BevelJoin||The triangular notch between the two lines is filled.|
|Qt.RoundJoin||A circular arc between the two lines is filled.|
|Qt.SvgMiterJoin||A miter join corresponding to the definition of a miter join in the SVG 1.2 Tiny specification.|
This enum type describes additional flags that can be used when subscribing to a gesture.
|Qt.DontStartGestureOnChildren||By default gestures can start on the widget or over any of its children. Use this flag to disable this and allow a gesture to start on the widget only.|
|Qt.ReceivePartialGestures||Allows any ignored gesture events to be propagated to parent widgets which have specified this hint. By default only gestures that are in the Qt.GestureStarted state are propagated and the widget always gets the full gesture sequence starting with a gesture in the Qt.GestureStarted state and ending with a gesture in the Qt.GestureFinished or Qt.GestureCanceled states.|
|Qt.IgnoredGesturesPropagateToParent||Since Qt 4.7, this flag allows you to fine-tune gesture event propagation. By setting the flag when grabbing a gesture all ignored partial gestures will propagate to their parent items.|
This enum was introduced or modified in Qt 4.6
This enum can be used to specify event priorities.
|Qt.HighEventPriority||Events with this priority are sent before events with NormalEventPriority or LowEventPriority .|
|Qt.NormalEventPriority||Events with this priority are sent after events with HighEventPriority , but before events with LowEventPriority .|
|Qt.LowEventPriority||Events with this priority are sent after events with HighEventPriority or NormalEventPriority .|
Note that these values are provided purely for convenience, since event priorities can be any value between INT_MAX and INT_MIN , inclusive. For example, you can define custom priorities as being relative to each other:
# An important event ImportantEventPriority = Qt.HighEventPriority # A more important event MoreImportantEventPriority = ImportantEventPriority + 1 # A critical event CriticalEventPriority = 100 * MoreImportantEventPriority # Not that important StatusEventPriority = Qt.LowEventPriority # These are less important than Status events IdleProcessingDoneEventPriority = StatusEventPriority - 1
The options marked “(default)” are set if no other values from the list are included (since the defaults are zero):
Color/Mono preference (ignored for PySide.QtGui.QBitmap ):
|Qt.AutoColor||(default) - If the image has PySide.QtGui.QImage.depth() 1 and contains only black and white pixels, the pixmap becomes monochrome.|
|Qt.ColorOnly||The pixmap is dithered/converted to the native display depth .|
|Qt.MonoOnly||The pixmap becomes monochrome. If necessary, it is dithered using the chosen dithering algorithm.|
Dithering mode preference for RGB channels:
|Qt.DiffuseDither||(default) - A high-quality dither.|
|Qt.OrderedDither||A faster, more ordered dither.|
|Qt.ThresholdDither||No dithering; closest color is used.|
Dithering mode preference for alpha channel:
|Qt.ThresholdAlphaDither||(default) - No dithering.|
|Qt.OrderedAlphaDither||A faster, more ordered dither.|
|Qt.DiffuseAlphaDither||A high-quality dither.|
Color matching versus dithering preference:
|Qt.PreferDither||(default when converting to a pixmap) - Always dither 32-bit images when the image is converted to 8 bits.|
|Qt.AvoidDither||(default when converting for the purpose of saving to file) - Dither 32-bit images only if the image has more than 256 colors and it is being converted to 8 bits.|
|Qt.NoOpaqueDetection||Do not check whether the image contains non-opaque pixels. Use this if you know that the image is semi-transparent and you want to avoid the overhead of checking the pixels in the image until a non-opaque pixel is found, or if you want the pixmap to retain an alpha channel for some other reason. If the image has no alpha channel this flag has no effect.|
This enum type describes the state of a gesture.
|Qt.GestureStarted||A continuous gesture has started.|
|Qt.GestureUpdated||A gesture continues.|
|Qt.GestureFinished||A gesture has finished.|
|Qt.GestureCanceled||A gesture was canceled.|
This enum was introduced or modified in Qt 4.6
This enum describes the types of connection that can be used between signals and slots. In particular, it determines whether a particular signal is delivered to a slot immediately or queued for delivery at a later time.
|Qt.AutoConnection||(default) If the signal is emitted from a different thread than the receiving object, the signal is queued, behaving as Qt.QueuedConnection . Otherwise, the slot is invoked directly, behaving as Qt.DirectConnection . The type of connection is determined when the signal is emitted.|
|Qt.DirectConnection||The slot is invoked immediately, when the signal is emitted.|
|Qt.QueuedConnection||The slot is invoked when control returns to the event loop of the receiver’s thread. The slot is executed in the receiver’s thread.|
|Qt.BlockingQueuedConnection||Same as QueuedConnection , except the current thread blocks until the slot returns. This connection type should only be used where the emitter and receiver are in different threads. Note: Violating this rule can cause your application to deadlock.|
|Qt.UniqueConnection||Same as AutoConnection , but the connection is made only if it does not duplicate an existing connection. i.e., if the same signal is already connected to the same slot for the same pair of objects, then the connection will fail. This connection type was introduced in Qt 4.6.|
|Qt.AutoCompatConnection||The default type when Qt 3 support is enabled. Same as AutoConnection but will also cause warnings to be output in certain situations. See Compatibility Signals and Slots for further information.|
With queued connections, the parameters must be of types that are known to Qt’s meta-object system, because Qt needs to copy the arguments to store them in an event behind the scenes. If you try to use a queued connection and get the error message:
QObject::connect: Cannot queue arguments of type 'MyType'
Call qRegisterMetaType() to register the data type before you establish the connection.
When using signals and slots with multiple threads, see Signals and Slots Across Threads .
Thread Support in Qt QObject.connect() qRegisterMetaType()
This enum specifies the coordinate system.
|Qt.DeviceCoordinates||Coordinates are relative to the upper-left corner of the object’s paint device.|
|Qt.LogicalCoordinates||Coordinates are relative to the upper-left corner of the object.|
This enum was introduced or modified in Qt 4.6
This enum is used by QPainter.drawRoundedRect() and QPainterPath.addRoundedRect() functions to specify the radii of rectangle corners with respect to the dimensions of the bounding rectangles specified.
|Qt.AbsoluteSize||Specifies the size using absolute measurements.|
|Qt.RelativeSize||Specifies the size relative to the bounding rectangle, typically using percentage measurements.|
This enum specifies why the focus changed. It will be passed through QWidget::setFocus and can be retrieved in the PySide.QtGui.QFocusEvent sent to the widget upon focus change.
|Qt.MouseFocusReason||A mouse action occurred.|
|Qt.TabFocusReason||The Tab key was pressed.|
|Qt.BacktabFocusReason||A Backtab occurred. The input for this may include the Shift or Control keys; e.g. Shift+Tab.|
|Qt.ActiveWindowFocusReason||The window system made this window either active or inactive.|
|Qt.PopupFocusReason||The application opened/closed a pop-up that grabbed/released the keyboard focus.|
|Qt.ShortcutFocusReason||The user typed a label’s buddy shortcut|
|Qt.MenuBarFocusReason||The menu bar took focus.|
|Qt.OtherFocusReason||Another reason, usually application-specific.|
This enum provides shorter names for the keyboard modifier keys supported by Qt.
On Mac OS X, the CTRL value corresponds to the Command keys on the Macintosh keyboard, and the META value corresponds to the Control keys.
|Qt.SHIFT||The Shift keys provided on all standard keyboards.|
|Qt.META||The Meta keys.|
|Qt.CTRL||The Ctrl keys.|
|Qt.ALT||The normal Alt keys, but not keys like AltGr.|
|Qt.UNICODE_ACCEL||The shortcut is specified as a Unicode code point, not as a Qt Key.|
This enum describes how to repeat or stretch the parts of an image when drawing.
|Qt.StretchTile||Scale the image to fit to the available area.|
|Qt.RepeatTile||Repeat the image until there is no more space. May crop the last image.|
|Qt.RoundTile||Similar to Repeat, but scales the image down to ensure that the last tile is not cropped.|
This enum was introduced or modified in Qt 4.6
This enum describes the types of whitespace mode that are used by the PySide.QtGui.QTextDocument class to meet the requirements of different kinds of textual information.
|Qt.WhiteSpaceNormal||The whitespace mode used to display normal word wrapped text in paragraphs.|
|Qt.WhiteSpacePre||A preformatted text mode in which whitespace is reproduced exactly.|
This enum is defined in the <QTextDocument> header file.
This enum type defines what happens to the aspect ratio when scaling an rectangle.
|Qt.IgnoreAspectRatio||The size is scaled freely. The aspect ratio is not preserved.|
|Qt.KeepAspectRatio||The size is scaled to a rectangle as large as possible inside a given rectangle, preserving the aspect ratio.|
|Qt.KeepAspectRatioByExpanding||The size is scaled to a rectangle as small as possible outside a given rectangle, preserving the aspect ratio.|
This enum is used by QGraphicsLayoutItem.sizeHint()
|Qt.MinimumSize||is used to specify the minimum size of a graphics layout item.|
|Qt.PreferredSize||is used to specify the preferred size of a graphics layout item.|
|Qt.MaximumSize||is used to specify the maximum size of a graphics layout item.|
|Qt.MinimumDescent||is used to specify the minimum descent of a text string in a graphics layout item.|
This enum type is used to describe alignment. It contains horizontal and vertical flags that can be combined to produce the required effect.
The Qt.TextElideMode enum can also be used in many situations to fine-tune the appearance of aligned text.
The horizontal flags are:
|Qt.AlignLeft||Aligns with the left edge.|
|Qt.AlignRight||Aligns with the right edge.|
|Qt.AlignHCenter||Centers horizontally in the available space.|
|Qt.AlignJustify||Justifies the text in the available space.|
The vertical flags are:
|Qt.AlignTop||Aligns with the top.|
|Qt.AlignBottom||Aligns with the bottom.|
|Qt.AlignVCenter||Centers vertically in the available space.|
You can use only one of the horizontal flags at a time. There is one two-dimensional flag:
|Qt.AlignCenter||Centers in both dimensions.|
You can use at most one horizontal and one vertical flag at a time. Qt.AlignCenter counts as both horizontal and vertical.
Three enum values are useful in applications that can be run in right-to-left mode:
|Qt.AlignAbsolute||If the widget’s layout direction is Qt.RightToLeft (instead of Qt.LeftToRight , the default), Qt.AlignLeft refers to the right edge and Qt.AlignRight to the left edge. This is normally the desired behavior. If you want Qt.AlignLeft to always mean “left” and Qt.AlignRight to always mean “right”, combine the flag with Qt.AlignAbsolute .|
|Qt.AlignLeading||Synonym for Qt.AlignLeft .|
|Qt.AlignTrailing||Synonym for Qt.AlignRight .|
Conflicting combinations of flags have undefined meanings.
This enum type defines the various policies a widget can have with respect to showing a context menu.
|Qt.NoContextMenu||the widget does not feature a context menu, context menu handling is deferred to the widget’s parent.|
|Qt.PreventContextMenu||the widget does not feature a context menu, and in contrast to NoContextMenu, the handling is not deferred to the widget’s parent. This means that all right mouse button events are guaranteed to be delivered to the widget itself through mousePressEvent(), and mouseReleaseEvent().|
|Qt.DefaultContextMenu||the widget’s QWidget.contextMenuEvent() handler is called.|
|Qt.ActionsContextMenu||the widget displays its QWidget.actions() as context menu.|
|Qt.CustomContextMenu||the widget emits the QWidget.customContextMenuRequested() signal.|
This enum describes the available UI effects.
By default, Qt will try to use the platform specific desktop settings for each effect. Use the QApplication.setDesktopSettingsAware() function (passing false as argument) to prevent this, and the QApplication.setEffectEnabled() to enable or disable a particular effect.
Note that all effects are disabled on screens running at less than 16-bit color depth.
|Qt.UI_AnimateMenu||Show animated menus.|
|Qt.UI_FadeMenu||Show faded menus.|
|Qt.UI_AnimateCombo||Show animated comboboxes.|
|Qt.UI_AnimateTooltip||Show tooltip animations.|
|Qt.UI_FadeTooltip||Show tooltip fading effects.|
Specifies a side of a layout item that can be anchored. This is used by PySide.QtGui.QGraphicsAnchorLayout .
|Qt.AnchorLeft||The left side of a layout item.|
|Qt.AnchorHorizontalCenter||A “virtual” side that is centered between the left and the right side of a layout item.|
|Qt.AnchorRight||The right side of a layout item.|
|Qt.AnchorTop||The top side of a layout item.|
|Qt.AnchorVerticalCenter||A “virtual” side that is centered between the top and the bottom side of a layout item.|
|Qt.AnchorBottom||The bottom side of a layout item.|
This enum was introduced or modified in Qt 4.6

This enum describes the modifier keys.
|Qt.NoModifier||No modifier key is pressed.|
|Qt.ShiftModifier||A Shift key on the keyboard is pressed.|
|Qt.ControlModifier||A Ctrl key on the keyboard is pressed.|
|Qt.AltModifier||An Alt key on the keyboard is pressed.|
|Qt.MetaModifier||A Meta key on the keyboard is pressed.|
|Qt.KeypadModifier||A keypad button is pressed.|
|Qt.GroupSwitchModifier||X11 only. A Mode_switch key on the keyboard is pressed.|
On Mac OS X, the ControlModifier value corresponds to the Command keys on the Macintosh keyboard, and the MetaModifier value corresponds to the Control keys. The KeypadModifier value will also be set when an arrow key is pressed as the arrow keys are considered part of the keypad.
On Windows Keyboards, Qt.MetaModifier and Qt.Key_Meta are mapped to the Windows key.
This enum type describes the mode for moving focus.
|Qt.NavigationModeNone||Only the touch screen is used.|
|Qt.NavigationModeKeypadTabOrder||Qt.Key_Up and Qt.Key_Down are used to change focus.|
|Qt.NavigationModeKeypadDirectional||Qt.Key_Up , Qt.Key_Down , Qt.Key_Left and Qt.Key_Right are used to change focus.|
|Qt.NavigationModeCursorAuto||The mouse cursor is used to change focus, it is displayed only on non touchscreen devices. The keypad is used to implement a virtual cursor, unless the device has an analog mouse type of input device (e.g. touchpad). This is the recommended setting for an application such as a web browser that needs pointer control on both touch and non-touch devices.|
|Qt.NavigationModeCursorForceVisible||The mouse cursor is used to change focus, it is displayed regardless of device type. The keypad is used to implement a virtual cursor, unless the device has an analog mouse type of input device (e.g. touchpad)|
: in 4.6, cursor navigation is only implemented for Symbian OS. On other platforms, it behaves as NavigationModeNone .
This enum was introduced or modified in Qt 4.6
Each item in the model has a set of data elements associated with it, each with its own role. The roles are used by the view to indicate to the model which type of data it needs. Custom models should return data in these types.
The general purpose roles (and the associated types) are:
|Qt.DisplayRole||The key data to be rendered in the form of text. ( PySide.QtCore.QString )|
|Qt.DecorationRole||The data to be rendered as a decoration in the form of an icon. ( PySide.QtGui.QColor , PySide.QtGui.QIcon or PySide.QtGui.QPixmap )|

Accessibility roles (with associated types):
|Qt.AccessibleTextRole||The text to be used by accessibility extensions and plugins, such as screen readers. ( PySide.QtCore.QString )|
|Qt.AccessibleDescriptionRole||A description of the item for accessibility purposes. ( PySide.QtCore.QString )|
|Qt.UserRole||The first role that can be used for application-specific purposes.|
For user roles, it is up to the developer to decide which types to use and ensure that components use the correct types when accessing and setting data.
This enum type describes the various modes of PySide.QtGui.QAbstractScrollArea ‘s scroll bars.
|Qt.ScrollBarAsNeeded||PySide.QtGui.QAbstractScrollArea shows a scroll bar when the content is too large to fit and not otherwise. This is the default.|
|Qt.ScrollBarAlwaysOff||PySide.QtGui.QAbstractScrollArea never shows a scroll bar.|
|Qt.ScrollBarAlwaysOn||PySide.QtGui.QAbstractScrollArea always shows a scroll bar.|
(The modes for the horizontal and vertical scroll bars are independent.)
Flags that alter the behavior:
|Qt.ImhHiddenText||Characters should be hidden, as is typically used when entering passwords. This is automatically set when setting QLineEdit.echoMode to Password.|
|Qt.ImhNoAutoUppercase||The input method should not try to automatically switch to upper case when a sentence ends.|
|Qt.ImhPreferNumbers||Numbers are preferred (but not required).|
|Qt.ImhPreferUppercase||Upper case letters are preferred (but not required).|
|Qt.ImhPreferLowercase||Lower case letters are preferred (but not required).|
|Qt.ImhNoPredictiveText||Do not use predictive text (i.e. dictionary lookup) while typing.|
Flags that restrict input (exclusive flags):
|Qt.ImhDigitsOnly||Only digits are allowed.|
|Qt.ImhFormattedNumbersOnly||Only number input is allowed. This includes decimal point and minus sign.|
|Qt.ImhUppercaseOnly||Only upper case letter input is allowed.|
|Qt.ImhLowercaseOnly||Only lower case letter input is allowed.|
|Qt.ImhDialableCharactersOnly||Only characters suitable for phone dialling are allowed.|
|Qt.ImhEmailCharactersOnly||Only characters suitable for email addresses are allowed.|
|Qt.ImhUrlCharactersOnly||Only characters suitable for URLs are allowed.|
|Qt.ImhExclusiveInputMask||This mask yields nonzero if any of the exclusive flags are used.|
If several exclusive flags are ORed together, the resulting character set will consist of the union of the specified sets. For instance specifying ImhNumbersOnly and ImhUppercaseOnly would yield a set consisting of numbers and uppercase letters.
This enum was introduced or modified in Qt 4.6
An anchor has one or more of the following attributes:
|Qt.AnchorName||the name attribute of the anchor. This attribute is used when scrolling to an anchor in the document.|
|Qt.AnchorHref||the href attribute of the anchor. This attribute is used when a link is clicked to determine what content to load.|
This enum specifies the behavior of a modal window. A modal window is one that blocks input to other windows. Note that windows that are children of a modal window are not blocked.

|Qt.WindowModal||The window is modal to a single window hierarchy and blocks input to its parent window, all grandparent windows, and all siblings of its parent and grandparent windows.|
|Qt.ApplicationModal||The window is modal to the application and blocks input to all windows.|
This enum describes how the items in a widget are sorted.
|Qt.AscendingOrder||The items are sorted ascending e.g. starts with ‘AAA’ ends with ‘ZZZ’ in Latin-1 locales|
|Qt.DescendingOrder||The items are sorted descending e.g. starts with ‘ZZZ’ ends with ‘AAA’ in Latin-1 locales|

|Qt.ItemIsEnabled||The user can interact with the item.|
|Qt.ItemIsTristate||The item is checkable with three separate states.|
Note that checkable items need to be given both a suitable set of flags and an initial state, indicating whether the item is checked or not. This is handled automatically for model/view components, but needs to be explicitly set for instances of PySide.QtGui.QListWidgetItem , PySide.QtGui.QTableWidgetItem , and PySide.QtGui.QTreeWidgetItem .

|Qt.LocalTime||Locale dependent time (Timezones and Daylight Savings Time).|
|Qt.UTC||Coordinated Universal Time, replaces Greenwich Mean Time.|
|Qt.OffsetFromUTC||An offset in seconds from Coordinated Universal Time.|
Specifies which method should be used to fill the paths and polygons.
|Qt.OddEvenFill||Specifies that the region is filled using the odd even fill rule. With this rule, we determine whether a point is inside the shape by using the following method. Draw a horizontal line from the point to a location outside the shape, and count the number of intersections. If the number of intersections is an odd number, the point is inside the shape. This mode is the default.|
|Qt.WindingFill||Specifies that the region is filled using the non zero winding rule. With this rule, we determine whether a point is inside the shape by using the following method. Draw a horizontal line from the point to a location outside the shape. Determine whether the direction of the line at each intersection point is up or down. The winding number is determined by summing the direction of each intersection. If the number is non zero, the point is inside the shape. This fill mode can also in most cases be considered as the intersection of closed shapes.|
This enum specifies the behavior of the QPixmap.createMaskFromColor() and QImage.createMaskFromColor() functions.
|Qt.MaskInColor||Creates a mask where all pixels matching the given color are opaque.|
|Qt.MaskOutColor||Creates a mask where all pixels matching the given color are transparent.|
This enum type is used to specify the current state of a top-level window.

|Qt.IntersectClip||Intersects the current clip path/rect/region with the one supplied in the function call.|
|Qt.UniteClip||Unites the current clip path/rect/region with the one supplied in the function call.|
Specifies the direction of Qt’s layouts and text handling.
Right-to-left layouts are necessary for certain languages, notably Arabic and Hebrew.
LayoutDirectionAuto serves two purposes. When used in conjunction with widgets and layouts, it will imply to use the layout direction set on the parent widget or PySide.QtGui.QApplication . This has the same effect as QWidget.unsetLayoutDirection() .
When LayoutDirectoinAuto is used in conjunction with text layouting, it will imply that the text directionality is determined from the content of the string to be layouted.
QApplication.setLayoutDirection() QWidget.setLayoutDirection() QTextOption.setTextDirection() QString.isRightToLeft()

This enum describes attributes that change the behavior of application-wide features. These are enabled and disabled using QCoreApplication.setAttribute() , and can be tested for with QCoreApplication.testAttribute() .
|Qt.AA_ImmediateWidgetCreation||Ensures that widgets are created as soon as they are constructed. By default, resources for widgets are allocated on demand to improve efficiency and minimize resource usage. Setting or clearing this attribute affects widgets constructed after the change. Setting it tells Qt to create toplevel windows immediately. Therefore, if it is important to minimize resource consumption, do not set this attribute.|
|Qt.AA_MSWindowsUseDirect3DByDefault||This value is obsolete and has no effect.|
|Qt.AA_DontShowIconsInMenus||Actions with the Icon property won’t be shown in any menus unless specifically set by the QAction.iconVisibleInMenu property. Menus that are currently open or menus already created in the native Mac OS X menubar may not pick up a change in this attribute. Changes in the QAction.iconVisibleInMenu property will always be picked up.|
|Qt.AA_NativeWindows||Ensures that widgets have native windows.|
|Qt.AA_DontCreateNativeWidgetSiblings||Ensures that siblings of native widgets stay non-native unless specifically set by the Qt.WA_NativeWindow attribute.|
|Qt.AA_MacPluginApplication||Stops the Qt mac application from doing specific initializations that do not necessarily make sense when using Qt to author a plugin. This includes avoiding loading our nib for the main menu and not taking possession of the native menu bar. When setting this attribute to true will also set the AA_DontUseNativeMenuBar attribute to true.|
|Qt.AA_DontUseNativeMenuBar||All menubars created while this attribute is set to true won’t be used as a native menubar (e.g, the menubar at the top of the main screen on Mac OS X or at the bottom in Windows CE).|
|Qt.AA_MacDontSwapCtrlAndMeta||On Mac OS X by default, Qt swaps the Control and Meta (Command) keys (i.e., whenever Control is pressed, Qt sends Meta, and whenever Meta is pressed Control is sent). When this attribute is true, Qt will not do the flip. QKeySequence::StandardShortcuts will also flip accordingly (i.e., QKeySequence.Copy will be Command+C on the keyboard regardless of the value set, though what is output for QKeySequence::toString( QKeySequence.PortableText ) will be different).|
|Qt.AA_S60DontConstructApplicationPanes||Stops Qt from initializing the S60 status pane and softkey pane on Symbian. This is useful to save memory and reduce startup time for applications that will run in fullscreen mode during their whole lifetime. This attribute must be set before PySide.QtGui.QApplication is constructed.|
By default in Symbian^3, a separate editing window is opened on top of an application. This is exactly like editing on previous versions of Symbian behave. When this attribute is true, a virtual keyboard window is shown on top of application and it is ensured that the focused text widget is visible. This is only supported in Symbian^3. (internal)
This enum type is used to define some modifier flags. Some of these flags only make sense in the context of printing:
|Qt.TextSingleLine||Treats all whitespace as spaces and prints just one line.|
|Qt.TextDontClip||If it’s impossible to stay within the given bounds, it prints outside.|
|Qt.TextExpandTabs||Makes the U+0009 (ASCII tab) character move to the next tab stop.|
|Qt.TextShowMnemonic||Displays the string “&P” as P (see QButton for an example). For an ampersand, use “&&”.|
|Qt.TextWordWrap||Breaks lines at appropriate points, e.g. at word boundaries.|
|Qt.TextWrapAnywhere||Breaks lines anywhere, even within words.|
|Qt.TextHideMnemonic||Same as Qt.TextShowMnemonic but doesn’t draw the underlines.|
|Qt.TextDontPrint||Treat this text as “hidden” and don’t print it.|
|Qt.IncludeTrailingSpaces||When this option is set, QTextLine.naturalTextWidth() and naturalTextRect() will return a value that includes the width of trailing spaces in the text; otherwise this width is excluded.|
|Qt.TextIncludeTrailingSpaces||Same as IncludeTrailingSpaces|
|Qt.TextJustificationForced||Ensures that text lines are justified.|
Ensures that the longest variant is always used when computing the size of a multi-variant string. (Internal)
You can use as many modifier flags as you want, except that Qt.TextSingleLine and Qt.TextWordWrap cannot be combined.
Flags that are inappropriate for a given use are generally ignored.
This enum type defines the brush styles supported by Qt, i.e. the fill pattern of shapes drawn using PySide.QtGui.QPainter .
|Qt.NoBrush||No brush pattern.|
|Qt.Dense1Pattern||Extremely dense brush pattern.|
|Qt.Dense2Pattern||Very dense brush pattern.|
|Qt.Dense3Pattern||Somewhat dense brush pattern.|
|Qt.Dense4Pattern||Half dense brush pattern.|
|Qt.Dense5Pattern||Somewhat sparse brush pattern.|
|Qt.Dense6Pattern||Very sparse brush pattern.|
|Qt.Dense7Pattern||Extremely sparse brush pattern.|
|Qt.CrossPattern||Crossing horizontal and vertical lines.|
|Qt.BDiagPattern||Backward diagonal lines.|
|Qt.FDiagPattern||Forward diagonal lines.|
|Qt.DiagCrossPattern||Crossing diagonal lines.|
|Qt.LinearGradientPattern||Linear gradient (set using a dedicated PySide.QtGui.QBrush constructor).|
|Qt.ConicalGradientPattern||Conical gradient (set using a dedicated PySide.QtGui.QBrush constructor).|
|Qt.RadialGradientPattern||Radial gradient (set using a dedicated PySide.QtGui.QBrush constructor).|
|Qt.TexturePattern||Custom pattern (see QBrush.setTexture() ).|
This enum type is used to specify various widget attributes. Attributes are set and cleared with QWidget.setAttribute() , and queried with QWidget.testAttribute() , although some have special convenience functions which are mentioned below.
|Qt.WA_AcceptDrops||Allows data from drag and drop operations to be dropped onto the widget (see QWidget.setAcceptDrops() ).|
|Qt.WA_AlwaysShowToolTips||Enables tooltips for inactive windows.|
|Qt.WA_ContentsPropagated||This flag is superfluous and obsolete; it no longer has any effect. Since Qt 4.1, all widgets that do not set WA_PaintOnScreen propagate their contents.|
|Qt.WA_CustomWhatsThis||Indicates that the widget wants to continue operating normally in “What’s This?” mode. This is set by the widget’s author.|
|Qt.WA_DeleteOnClose||Makes Qt delete this widget when the widget has accepted the close event (see QWidget.closeEvent() ).|
|Qt.WA_Disabled||Indicates that the widget is disabled, i.e. it does not receive any mouse or keyboard events. There is also a getter functions QWidget.isEnabled() . This is set/cleared by the Qt kernel.|
|Qt.WA_DontShowOnScreen||Indicates that the widget is hidden or is not a part of the viewable Desktop.|
|Qt.WA_ForceDisabled||Indicates that the widget is explicitly disabled, i.e. it will remain disabled even when all its ancestors are set to the enabled state. This implies WA_Disabled . This is set/cleared by QWidget.setEnabled() and QWidget.setDisabled() .|
|Qt.WA_ForceUpdatesDisabled||Indicates that updates are explicitly disabled for the widget; i.e. it will remain disabled even when all its ancestors are set to the updates-enabled state. This implies WA_UpdatesDisabled . This is set/cleared by QWidget.setUpdatesEnabled() .|
|Qt.WA_GroupLeader||This attribute has been deprecated. Use QWidget.windowModality instead.|
|Qt.WA_Hover||Forces Qt to generate paint events when the mouse enters or leaves the widget. This feature is typically used when implementing custom styles; see the Styles example for details.|
|Qt.WA_InputMethodEnabled||Enables input methods for Asian languages. Must be set when creating custom text editing widgets. On Windows CE and Symbian this flag can be used in addition to QApplication.autoSipEnabled to automatically display the SIP when entering a widget.|
|Qt.WA_KeyboardFocusChange||Set on a toplevel window when the users changes focus with the keyboard (tab, backtab, or shortcut).|
|Qt.WA_KeyCompression||Enables key event compression if set, and disables it if not set. By default key compression is off, so widgets receive one key press event for each key press (or more, since autorepeat is usually on). If you turn it on and your program doesn’t keep up with key input, Qt may try to compress key events so that more than one character can be processed in each event. For example, a word processor widget might receive 2, 3 or more characters in each QKeyEvent.text() , if the layout recalculation takes too long for the CPU. If a widget supports multiple character unicode input, it is always safe to turn the compression on. Qt performs key event compression only for printable characters. Qt.Modifier keys, cursor movement keys, function keys and miscellaneous action keys (e.g. Escape, Enter, Backspace, PrintScreen) will stop key event compression, even if there are more compressible key events available. Platforms other than Mac and X11 do not support this compression, in which case turning it on will have no effect. This is set/cleared by the widget’s author.|
|Qt.WA_LayoutOnEntireRect||Indicates that the widget wants PySide.QtGui.QLayout to operate on the entire QWidget.rect() , not only on QWidget.contentsRect() . This is set by the widget’s author.|
|Qt.WA_LayoutUsesWidgetRect||Ignore the layout item rect from the style when laying out this widget with PySide.QtGui.QLayout . This makes a difference in QMacStyle and PySide.QtGui.QPlastiqueStyle for some widgets.|
|Qt.WA_MacNoClickThrough||When a widget that has this attribute set is clicked, and its window is inactive, the click will make the window active but won’t be seen by the widget. Typical use of this attribute is on widgets with “destructive” actions, such as a “Delete” button. WA_MacNoClickThrough also applies to all child widgets of the widget that has it set.|
|Qt.WA_MacOpaqueSizeGrip||Indicates that the native Carbon size grip should be opaque instead of transparent (the default). This attribute is only applicable to Mac OS X and is set by the widget’s author.|
|Qt.WA_MacShowFocusRect||Indicates that this widget should get a PySide.QtGui.QFocusFrame around it. Some widgets draw their own focus halo regardless of this attribute. Not that the QWidget.focusPolicy also plays the main role in whether something is given focus or not, this only controls whether or not this gets the focus frame. This attribute is only applicable to Mac OS X.|
|Qt.WA_MacNormalSize||Indicates the widget should have the normal size for widgets in Mac OS X. This attribute is only applicable to Mac OS X.|
|Qt.WA_MacSmallSize||Indicates the widget should have the small size for widgets in Mac OS X. This attribute is only applicable to Mac OS X.|
|Qt.WA_MacMiniSize||Indicates the widget should have the mini size for widgets in Mac OS X. This attribute is only applicable to Mac OS X.|
|Qt.WA_MacVariableSize||Indicates the widget can choose between alternative sizes for widgets to avoid clipping. This attribute is only applicable to Mac OS X.|
|Qt.WA_MacBrushedMetal||Indicates the widget should be drawn in the brushed metal style as supported by the windowing system. This attribute is only applicable to Mac OS X.|
|Qt.WA_Mapped||Indicates that the widget is mapped on screen. This is set/cleared by the Qt kernel.|
|Qt.WA_MouseNoMask||Makes the widget receive mouse events for the entire widget regardless of the currently set mask, overriding QWidget.setMask() . This is not applicable for top-level windows.|
|Qt.WA_MouseTracking||Indicates that the widget has mouse tracking enabled. See QWidget.mouseTracking .|
|Qt.WA_Moved||Indicates that the widget has an explicit position. This is set/cleared by QWidget.move() and by QWidget.setGeometry() .|
|Qt.WA_MSWindowsUseDirect3D||This value is obsolete and has no effect.|
|Qt.WA_NoBackground||This value is obsolete. Use WA_OpaquePaintEvent instead.|
|Qt.WA_NoChildEventsForParent||Indicates that the widget does not want ChildAdded or ChildRemoved events sent to its parent. This is rarely necessary but can help to avoid automatic insertion widgets like splitters and layouts. This is set by a widget’s author.|
|Qt.WA_NoChildEventsFromChildren||Indicates that the widget does not want to receive ChildAdded or ChildRemoved events sent from its children. This is set by a widget’s author.|
|Qt.WA_NoMouseReplay||Used for pop-up widgets. Indicates that the most recent mouse press event should not be replayed when the pop-up widget closes. The flag is set by the widget’s author and cleared by the Qt kernel every time the widget receives a new mouse event.|
|Qt.WA_NoMousePropagation||Prohibits mouse events from being propagated to the widget’s parent. This attribute is disabled by default.|
|Qt.WA_TransparentForMouseEvents||When enabled, this attribute disables the delivery of mouse events to the widget and its children. Mouse events are delivered to other widgets as if the widget and its children were not present in the widget hierarchy; mouse clicks and other events effectively “pass through” them. This attribute is disabled by default.|
|Qt.WA_NoSystemBackground||Indicates that the widget has no background, i.e. when the widget receives paint events, the background is not automatically repainted. Note: Unlike WA_OpaquePaintEvent , newly exposed areas are never filled with the background (e.g., after showing a window for the first time the user can see “through” it until the application processes the paint events). This flag is set or cleared by the widget’s author.|
|Qt.WA_OpaquePaintEvent||Indicates that the widget paints all its pixels when it receives a paint event. Thus, it is not required for operations like updating, resizing, scrolling and focus changes to erase the widget before generating paint events. The use of WA_OpaquePaintEvent provides a small optimization by helping to reduce flicker on systems that do not support double buffering and avoiding computational cycles necessary to erase the background prior to painting. Note: Unlike WA_NoSystemBackground , WA_OpaquePaintEvent makes an effort to avoid transparent window backgrounds. This flag is set or cleared by the widget’s author.|
|Qt.WA_OutsideWSRange||Indicates that the widget is outside the valid range of the window system’s coordinate system. A widget outside the valid range cannot be mapped on screen. This is set/cleared by the Qt kernel.|
|Qt.WA_PaintOnScreen||Indicates that the widget wants to draw directly onto the screen. Widgets with this attribute set do not participate in composition management, i.e. they cannot be semi-transparent or shine through semi-transparent overlapping widgets. Note: This flag is only supported on X11 and it disables double buffering. On Qt for Embedded Linux, the flag only works when set on a top-level widget and it relies on support from the active screen driver. This flag is set or cleared by the widget’s author. To render outside of Qt’s paint system, e.g., if you require native painting primitives, you need to reimplement QWidget.paintEngine() to return 0 and set this flag.|
|Qt.WA_PaintOutsidePaintEvent||Makes it possible to use PySide.QtGui.QPainter to paint on the widget outside PySide.QtGui.QWidget.paintEvent() . This flag is not supported on Windows, Mac OS X or Embedded Linux. We recommend that you use it only when porting Qt 3 code to Qt 4.|
|Qt.WA_PaintUnclipped||Makes all painters operating on this widget unclipped. Children of this widget or other widgets in front of it do not clip the area the painter can paint on. This flag is only supported for widgets with the WA_PaintOnScreen flag set. The preferred way to do this in a cross platform way is to create a transparent widget that lies in front of the other widgets.|
|Qt.WA_PendingMoveEvent||Indicates that a move event is pending, e.g., when a hidden widget was moved. This flag is set or cleared by the Qt kernel.|
|Qt.WA_PendingResizeEvent||Indicates that a resize event is pending, e.g., when a hidden widget was resized. This flag is set or cleared by the Qt kernel.|
|Qt.WA_QuitOnClose||Makes Qt quit the application when the last widget with the attribute set has accepted closeEvent(). This behavior can be modified with the QApplication.quitOnLastWindowClosed property. By default this attribute is set for all widgets of type Qt.Window .|
|Qt.WA_Resized||Indicates that the widget has an explicit size. This flag is set or cleared by QWidget.resize() and QWidget.setGeometry() .|
