"Fossies" - the Fresh Open Source Software Archive

Member "qt-everywhere-src-6.3.1/qtbase/dist/changes-0.98" (25 May 2022, 3438 Bytes) of package /linux/misc/qt-everywhere-src-6.3.1.tar.xz:


As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    1 Here is a list of (major) changes in Qt from 0.96 to 0.98.
    2 As usual, we fixed some bugs and improved the documentation.
    3 
    4 
    5 *************** Changes that might affect runtime behavior *****************
    6 
    7 QWidget:
    8 --------
    9   setMinimumSize() and setMaximumSize() now force the widget to 
   10   a legal size.  resize() and setGeometry() obey the widget's
   11   minimum/maximum size.
   12 
   13   The default behaviour of QWidget::closeEvent is now to hide the widget,
   14   not to delete it as before (which was potentially dangerous). This means
   15   that if you have a top level widget and the user closes it via the close
   16   box, it will now hide itself if you have not reimplemented closeEvent().
   17   See the QWidget::closeEvent() and QCloseEvent documentation for details.
   18 
   19   (There are other changes in QWidget, see below)
   20 
   21 
   22 *************** Changes that might generate compile errors *****************
   23 **************           when compiling old code           *****************
   24 
   25 Disabled copy constructors and operators=
   26 ----------------------------------------- 
   27   Copy constructors and operators= are disabled in the classes that cannot
   28   be copied (this includes all classes that inherit from QObject). This
   29   will let the compiler find bugs in your code, you'll get compile time 
   30   errors where you most probably would have gotten core dumps before. 
   31   This change has been done in the following classes:
   32 
   33     QAccel QApplication QBuffer QButton QButtonGroup QCheckBox QClipboard
   34     QComboBox QConnection QDataStream QDialog QFile QFileDialog QFrame
   35     QGroupBox QIODevice QImageIO QLCDNumber QLabel QLineEdit QListBox
   36     QMenuBar QMenuData QMenuItem QMessageBox QMetaObject QObject
   37     QPSPrinter QPaintDevice QPainter QPicture QPopupMenu QPrintDialog
   38     QPrinter QPushButton QRadioButton QRangeControl QScrollBar QSignal
   39     QSocketNotifier QTableView QTextStream QTimer QWidget QWindow
   40 
   41   The other classes all have sensible copy constructors and operators=.
   42 
   43 QDate:
   44 ------
   45   These were protected, now private:
   46 	static const char *monthNames[];
   47  	static const char *weekdayNames[];
   48 	uint  	 jd;
   49 
   50 QListBox:
   51 ---------
   52   The internals of QListBox are completely reworked. Definition of custom
   53   QListBoxItems is now much easier. This is *not* compatible with the old
   54   way of defining custom QLBItems. See the QListBoxItem documentation for
   55   details.
   56 
   57 QTime:
   58 ------
   59   This was protected, now private:
   60 	uint   ds;
   61 
   62 *************** Type changes that might generate warnings: *****************
   63 
   64 none
   65 
   66 *****************         Obsoleted functions         **********************
   67 
   68 none
   69 
   70 ***************** All other changes from 0.96 to 0.98 **********************
   71 
   72 moc:
   73 ----
   74   Moc previously gave a syntax error when the word "class" was found
   75   in a string outside a class declaration. This bug has now been
   76   fixed.
   77 
   78   More moc arguments, check the manpage for details.
   79 
   80 QFont:
   81 ------
   82   Two new convenience functions; bold() and setBold().
   83 
   84 QLabel:
   85 -------
   86   setMargin() and margin() are new. setMargin() specifies a minimum margin
   87   when the label contents are justified.
   88 
   89 QWidget:
   90 --------
   91   You can specify a custom widget frame for top level widgets, including
   92   no frame at all. See the widget constructor doc. for details.
   93 
   94   Qt now has enter and leave events. Reimplement the virtual functions  
   95   void enterEvent( QEvent * ) and void leaveEvent( QEvent * ) to receive
   96   events when the mouse cursor leaves or enters the visible part of the
   97   widget.
