QPainterPath::contains - Docs too brief
@bool QPainterPath::contains ( const QRectF & rectangle ) const
Returns true if the given rectangle is inside the path, otherwise returns false.@
Does it mean completely contained? Partially contained? All corners contained? All lines contained?
Judging from other places (QRectF), it's probably something like "more or less completely contained". It's usually hard to say for sure when dealing with floating point numbers.
Ok, I know about the limitations concerning whether edges are included or not.
But for example, if I have a painter path in form of a pac man (circle with open triangular mouth), and a rectangle which is completely inside the pac man's bounding rectangle, but partially visible in the mouth - is that rectangle considered "contained"?
That is a quite specific use case. You can test, and maybe update the documentation with your findings (or file a bug report for that).
It's just an example to illustrate that the word "contained" alone is not as clear as one would hope.
I wouldn't dare to update the documentation based on some trial and error. The docs need to describe how the method is expected to perform (and any deviation from that is then a good basis for a bug report).
