       QFontInfo - General information about fonts

       #include <qfontinfo.h>

   Public Members
       QFontInfo ( const QFont & font )
       QFontInfo ( const QFontInfo & fi )
       ~QFontInfo ()
       QFontInfo & operator= ( const QFontInfo & fi )
       QString family () const
       int pixelSize () const
       int pointSize () const
       bool italic () const
       int weight () const
       bool bold () const
       bool fixedPitch () const
       QFont::StyleHint styleHint () const
       bool rawMode () const
       bool exactMatch () const

       The QFontInfo class provides general information about fonts.

       The QFontInfo class provides the same access functions as QFont, e.g. family(),
       pointSize(), italic(), weight(), fixedPitch(), styleHint() etc. But whilst the QFont
       access functions return the values that were set, a QFontInfo object returns the values
       that apply to the font that will actually be used to draw the text.

       For example, when the program asks for a 25pt Courier font on a machine that has a non-
       scalable 24pt Courier font, QFont will (normally) use the 24pt Courier for rendering. In
       this case, QFont::pointSize() returns 25 and QFontInfo::pointSize() returns 24.

       There are three ways to create a QFontInfo object. <ol type=1>

       1      Calling the QFontInfo constructor with a QFont creates a font info object for a
	      screen-compatible font, i.e. the font cannot be a printer font<sup>*</sup>. If the
	      font is changed later, the font info object is not updated.

       2      QWidget::fontInfo() returns the font info for a widget's font. This is equivalent
	      to calling QFontInfo(widget->font()). If the widget's font is changed later, the
	      font info object is not updated.

       3      QPainter::fontInfo() returns the font info for a painter's current font. The font
	      info object is automatically updated if you set a new painter font.

       <sup>*</sup> If you use a printer font the values returned will almost certainly be
       inaccurate. Printer fonts are not always accessible so the nearest screen font is used if
       a printer font is supplied.

       See also QFont, QFontMetrics, QFontDatabase, Graphics Classes, and Implicitly and
       Explicitly Shared Classes.

QFontInfo::QFontInfo ( const QFont & font )
       Constructs a font info object for font.

       The font must be screen-compatible, i.e. a font you use when drawing text in widgets or
       pixmaps, not QPicture or QPrinter.

       The font info object holds the information for the font that is passed in the constructor
       at the time it is created, and is not updated if the font's attributes are changed later.

       Use the QPainter::fontInfo() function to get the font info when painting. This is a little
       slower than using this constructor, but it always gives correct results because the font
       info data is updated.

QFontInfo::QFontInfo ( const QFontInfo & fi )
       Constructs a copy of fi.

QFontInfo::~QFontInfo ()
       Destroys the font info object.

bool QFontInfo::bold () const
       Returns TRUE if weight() would return a value greater than QFont::Normal; otherwise
       returns FALSE.

       See also weight() and QFont::bold().

bool QFontInfo::exactMatch () const
       Returns TRUE if the matched window system font is exactly the same as the one specified by
       the font; otherwise returns FALSE.

       See also QFont::exactMatch().

QString QFontInfo::family () const
       Returns the family name of the matched window system font.

       See also QFont::family().

       Example: fonts/simple-qfont-demo/viewer.cpp.

bool QFontInfo::fixedPitch () const
       Returns the fixed pitch value of the matched window system font.

       See also QFont::fixedPitch().

bool QFontInfo::italic () const
       Returns the italic value of the matched window system font.

       See also QFont::italic().

QFontInfo &; QFontInfo::operator= ( const QFontInfo & fi )
       Assigns the font info in fi.

int QFontInfo::pixelSize () const
       Returns the pixel size of the matched window system font.

       See also QFont::pointSize().

int QFontInfo::pointSize () const
       Returns the point size of the matched window system font.

       See also QFont::pointSize().

       Example: fonts/simple-qfont-demo/viewer.cpp.

bool QFontInfo::rawMode () const
       Returns TRUE if the font is a raw mode font; otherwise returns FALSE.

       If it is a raw mode font, all other functions in QFontInfo will return the same values set
       in the QFont, regardless of the font actually used.

       See also QFont::rawMode().

QFont::StyleHint QFontInfo::styleHint () const
       Returns the style of the matched window system font.

       Currently only returns the style hint set in QFont.

       See also QFont::styleHint() and QFont::StyleHint.

int QFontInfo::weight () const
       Returns the weight of the matched window system font.

       See also QFont::weight() and bold().
