The PySide.QtCore.QRect class defines a rectangle in the plane using integer precision.
A rectangle is normally expressed as an upperleft corner and a size. The size (width and height) of a PySide.QtCore.QRect is always equivalent to the mathematical rectangle that forms the basis for its rendering.
A PySide.QtCore.QRect can be constructed with a set of left, top, width and height integers, or from a PySide.QtCore.QPoint and a PySide.QtCore.QSize . The following code creates two identical rectangles.
r1 = QRect(100, 200, 11, 16) r2 = QRect(QPoint(100, 200), QSize(11, 16))There is a third constructor that creates a PySide.QtCore.QRect using the topleft and bottomright coordinates, but we recommend that you avoid using it. The rationale is that for historical reasons the values returned by the PySide.QtCore.QRect.bottom() and PySide.QtCore.QRect.right() functions deviate from the true bottomright corner of the rectangle.
The PySide.QtCore.QRect class provides a collection of functions that return the various rectangle coordinates, and enable manipulation of these. PySide.QtCore.QRect also provide functions to move the rectangle relative to the various coordinates. In addition there is a PySide.QtCore.QRect.moveTo() function that moves the rectangle, leaving its top left corner at the given coordinates. Alternatively, the PySide.QtCore.QRect.translate() function moves the rectangle the given offset relative to the current position, and the PySide.QtCore.QRect.translated() function returns a translated copy of this rectangle.
The PySide.QtCore.QRect.size() function returns the rectange’s dimensions as a PySide.QtCore.QSize . The dimensions can also be retrieved separately using the PySide.QtCore.QRect.width() and PySide.QtCore.QRect.height() functions. To manipulate the dimensions use the PySide.QtCore.QRect.setSize() , PySide.QtCore.QRect.setWidth() or PySide.QtCore.QRect.setHeight() functions. Alternatively, the size can be changed by applying either of the functions setting the rectangle coordinates, for example, PySide.QtCore.QRect.setBottom() or PySide.QtCore.QRect.setRight() .
The PySide.QtCore.QRect.contains() function tells whether a given point is inside the rectangle or not, and the PySide.QtCore.QRect.intersects() function returns true if this rectangle intersects with a given rectangle. The PySide.QtCore.QRect class also provides the PySide.QtCore.QRect.intersected() function which returns the intersection rectangle, and the PySide.QtCore.QRect.united() function which returns the rectangle that encloses the given rectangle and this:
PySide.QtCore.QRect.intersected() PySide.QtCore.QRect.united() The PySide.QtCore.QRect.isEmpty() function returns true if PySide.QtCore.QRect.left() > PySide.QtCore.QRect.right() or PySide.QtCore.QRect.top() > PySide.QtCore.QRect.bottom() . Note that an empty rectangle is not valid: The PySide.QtCore.QRect.isValid() function returns true if PySide.QtCore.QRect.left() <= PySide.QtCore.QRect.right() andPySide.QtCore.QRect.top() <= PySide.QtCore.QRect.bottom() . A null rectangle ( PySide.QtCore.QRect.isNull() == true) on the other hand, has both width and height set to 0.
Note that due to the way PySide.QtCore.QRect and PySide.QtCore.QRectF are defined, an empty PySide.QtCore.QRect is defined in essentially the same way as PySide.QtCore.QRectF .
Finally, PySide.QtCore.QRect objects can be streamed as well as compared.
When using an antialiased painter, the boundary line of a PySide.QtCore.QRect will be rendered symmetrically on both sides of the mathematical rectangle’s boundary line. But when using an aliased painter (the default) other rules apply.
Then, when rendering with a one pixel wide pen the PySide.QtCore.QRect ‘s boundary line will be rendered to the right and below the mathematical rectangle’s boundary line.
When rendering with a two pixels wide pen the boundary line will be split in the middle by the mathematical rectangle. This will be the case whenever the pen is set to an even number of pixels, while rendering with a pen with an odd number of pixels, the spare pixel will be rendered to the right and below the mathematical rectangle as in the one pixel case.
Logical representation One pixel wide pen Two pixel wide pen Three pixel wide pen
The PySide.QtCore.QRect class provides a collection of functions that return the various rectangle coordinates, and enable manipulation of these. PySide.QtCore.QRect also provide functions to move the rectangle relative to the various coordinates.
For example the PySide.QtCore.QRect.left() , PySide.QtCore.QRect.setLeft() and PySide.QtCore.QRect.moveLeft() functions as an example: PySide.QtCore.QRect.left() returns the xcoordinate of the rectangle’s left edge, PySide.QtCore.QRect.setLeft() sets the left edge of the rectangle to the given x coordinate (it may change the width, but will never change the rectangle’s right edge) and PySide.QtCore.QRect.moveLeft() moves the entire rectangle horizontally, leaving the rectangle’s left edge at the given x coordinate and its size unchanged.
Note that for historical reasons the values returned by the PySide.QtCore.QRect.bottom() and PySide.QtCore.QRect.right() functions deviate from the true bottomright corner of the rectangle: The PySide.QtCore.QRect.right() function returns * PySide.QtCore.QRect.left() + :meth:`PySide.QtCore.QRect.width` * 1 and the PySide.QtCore.QRect.bottom() function returns * PySide.QtCore.QRect.top() + :meth:`PySide.QtCore.QRect.height` * 1 . The same is the case for the point returned by the PySide.QtCore.QRect.bottomRight() convenience function. In addition, the x and y coordinate of the PySide.QtCore.QRect.topRight() and PySide.QtCore.QRect.bottomLeft() functions, respectively, contain the same deviation from the true right and bottom edges.
We recommend that you use PySide.QtCore.QRect.x() + PySide.QtCore.QRect.width() and PySide.QtCore.QRect.y() + PySide.QtCore.QRect.height() to find the true bottomright corner, and avoid PySide.QtCore.QRect.right() and PySide.QtCore.QRect.bottom() . Another solution is to use PySide.QtCore.QRectF : The PySide.QtCore.QRectF class defines a rectangle in the plane using floating point accuracy for coordinates, and the QRectF.right() and QRectF.bottom() functions do return the right and bottom coordinates.
It is also possible to add offsets to this rectangle’s coordinates using the PySide.QtCore.QRect.adjust() function, as well as retrieve a new rectangle based on adjustments of the original one using the PySide.QtCore.QRect.adjusted() function. If either of the width and height is negative, use the PySide.QtCore.QRect.normalized() function to retrieve a rectangle where the corners are swapped.
In addition, PySide.QtCore.QRect provides the PySide.QtCore.QRect.getCoords() function which extracts the position of the rectangle’s topleft and bottomright corner, and the PySide.QtCore.QRect.getRect() function which extracts the rectangle’s topleft corner, width and height. Use the PySide.QtCore.QRect.setCoords() and PySide.QtCore.QRect.setRect() function to manipulate the rectangle’s coordinates and dimensions in one go.

Returns true if the rectangle is empty, otherwise returns false.
An empty rectangle has a PySide.QtCore.QRect.left() > PySide.QtCore.QRect.right() or PySide.QtCore.QRect.top() > PySide.QtCore.QRect.bottom() . An empty rectangle is not valid (i.e., PySide.QtCore.QRect.isEmpty() == ! PySide.QtCore.QRect.isValid() ).

Return type:  PySide.QtCore.bool 

Returns true if the rectangle is a null rectangle, otherwise returns false.
A null rectangle has both the width and the height set to 0 (i.e., PySide.QtCore.QRect.right() == PySide.QtCore.QRect.left()  1 and PySide.QtCore.QRect.bottom() == PySide.QtCore.QRect.top()  1). A null rectangle is also empty, and hence is not valid.
