Relieve platform plugins of having to persist geometry on WM callbacks
We can offload this to QGuiApplication, just like the geometry of the QWindow is set. This ensures that all platforms behave the same, and that the documentation of QPlatformWindow::setGeometry is adhered. Change-Id: I19dbc32cb4fb146d716ec289c28030a547d3afaa Reviewed-by: Simon Hausmann <>

+ This function is called by Qt whenever a window is moved or resized using the QWindow API.

+ QWindow::geometry() is expected to report back the set geometry until a confirmation

+ via handleGeometryChange().
+ Window move/resizes can also be triggered spontaneously by the window manager, or as a

The position(x, y) part of the rect might be inclusive or exclusive of the window frame
as returned by frameMargins(). You can detect this in the plugin by checking
