Problems with QSytyledItemDelegate and QStyleOptionProgressBar on macOS

  • Hi All,

    the following short application demonstrates the problem (occurs on at least Qt v5.12.10):

    #include <QtWidgets>
    #include <QTimer>
    class Delegate final
      : public QStyledItemDelegate
      explicit Delegate (QObject * parent = nullptr)
        : QStyledItemDelegate {parent}
      void paint (QPainter * painter, QStyleOptionViewItem const& option
                  , QModelIndex const& index) const
        QStyleOptionProgressBar progress_bar_option;
        progress_bar_option.rect = option.rect;
        progress_bar_option.state = QStyle::State_Enabled;
        progress_bar_option.direction = QApplication::layoutDirection ();
        progress_bar_option.fontMetrics = QApplication::fontMetrics ();
        progress_bar_option.minimum = 0;
        progress_bar_option.maximum = 100;
        auto progress = ().toLongLong ();
        auto percent = int (progress * 100 / (Qt::UserRole).toLongLong ());
        progress_bar_option.progress = percent;
        progress_bar_option.text = QString::number (percent) + '%';
        progress_bar_option.textVisible = true;
        progress_bar_option.textAlignment = Qt::AlignCenter;
        QApplication::style ()->drawControl (QStyle::CE_ProgressBar, &progress_bar_option, painter);
    int main (int argc, char * argv[])
      QApplication a {argc, argv};
      QListWidget w;
      Delegate d;
      w.setItemDelegate (&d);
      QListWidgetItem i1 {"Item 1"};
      i1.setData (Qt::UserRole, 100);
      w.addItem (&i1);
      QListWidgetItem i2 {"Item 2"};
      w.addItem (&i2);
      i2.setData (Qt::UserRole, 100); ();
      QTimer t;
      qint64 n1 {0};
      qint64 n2 {0};
      t.callOnTimeout ([&] {
                         i1.setData (Qt::DisplayRole, (n1 += 2));
                         i2.setData (Qt::DisplayRole, (n2 += 10));
      t.start (1000);
      QObject::connect (&a, &QApplication::lastWindowClosed, &a, &QApplication::quit);
      return a.exec ();

    On Windows (MinGW) an Linux this works as intended with QProgressBars being used as QListWidgetitem delegates, but on macOS the progress bars get piled on top of each other at the top left of the list widget.

    I am looking for a way use progress bar item delegates that look similar on all platforms.

    Please try with a more recent version, I remember a fix for drawing in item views.

  • Thanks for the suggestion, but isn't 5.12.10 an LTS release, I would expect bug fixes to be back ported. I tried with 5.15.2 and it is the same.

    @bsomervi said in Problems with QSytyledItemDelegate and QStyleOptionProgressBar on macOS:

    It depends on it's priority and a drawing bug in a style delegate for macos is not very critical I would guess.

  • @SGaist did you mean I should try Qt 6?

    No, rather the latest 5.15.
