Overview

This code snippets shows how to use the QFont and QFontMetrics classes to draw a string into the center of the screen and to get the string height and width in pixels.

Note: In order to use this code, you need to have Qt for S60 installed on your platform.


Preconditions

Source code

  • This source code centers the text and sets the text colour.
void QMyWidget::paintEvent(QPaintEvent*)
{
QPainter painter(this);
 
// Create font
QFont f("Helvetica",6);
// Set current font
painter.setFont(f);
// Set font color
painter.setPen(Qt::white);
// Get QFontMetrics reference
QFontMetrics fm = painter.fontMetrics();
 
QString text = "helloworld";
 
// Calculate text center position into the screen using QFontMetrics class
QPoint center = QPoint((width()-fm.width(text))/2,
fm.height());
 
// QFontMetrics::width() gives calculated text width with current QFont in QPainter
// QFontMetrics::height() gives text height
 
painter.drawText(center,text);
}


Postconditions

The text is centered on the screen.

The code example can be found at File:HelloworldNew.zip
