Overview

This code snippets shows how to get screen coordinates/screen size in application. The API QDesktopWidget::screenGeometry() returns the application rect (screen size of device) and API QDesktopWidget::availableGeometry() returns client rect (screen size minus status pane). It is useful in UI applications that do not use layout managers by implementing virtual QWidget::resizeEvent().

This snippet can be self-signed. As it does not use any API which require developer/symbian signed certificate.

Preconditions

Source

QDesktopWidget* desktopWidget = QApplication::desktop();
//get client rect.
QRect clientRect = desktopWidget->availableGeometry();
 
//get application rect.
QRect applicationRect = desktopWidget->screenGeometry();


Postconditions

You will get application rect.
