Detailed Description

The QJsonArray::iterator class provides an STL-style non-const iterator for QJsonArray.

QJsonArray::iterator allows you to iterate over a QJsonArray and to modify the array item associated with the iterator. If you want to iterate over a const QJsonArray, use QJsonArray::const_iterator instead. It is generally a good practice to use QJsonArray::const_iterator on a non-const QJsonArray as well, unless you need to change the QJsonArray through the iterator. Const iterators are slightly faster and improves code readability.

The default QJsonArray::iterator constructor creates an uninitialized iterator. You must initialize it using a QJsonArray function like QJsonArray::begin(), QJsonArray::end(), or QJsonArray::insert() before you can start iterating.

Most QJsonArray functions accept an integer index rather than an iterator. For that reason, iterators are rarely useful in connection with QJsonArray. One place where STL-style iterators do make sense is as arguments to generic algorithms.

Multiple iterators can be used on the same array. However, be aware that any non-const function call performed on the QJsonArray will render all existing iterators undefined.

See also QJsonArray::const_iterator.

Member Type Documentation

typedef iterator::iterator_category

A synonym for std::random_access_iterator_tag indicating this iterator is a random access iterator.

Member Function Documentation

bool iterator::operator>=(const iterator &other) const

bool iterator::operator>=(const const_iterator &other) const

Returns true if the item pointed to by this iterator is greater than or equal to the item pointed to by the other iterator.

bool iterator::operator>(const iterator &other) const

bool iterator::operator>(const const_iterator &other) const

Returns true if the item pointed to by this iterator is greater than the item pointed to by the other iterator.

bool iterator::operator<=(const iterator &other) const

bool iterator::operator<=(const const_iterator &other) const

Returns true if the item pointed to by this iterator is less than or equal to the item pointed to by the other iterator.

bool iterator::operator<(const iterator &other) const

bool iterator::operator<(const const_iterator &other) const

Returns true if the item pointed to by this iterator is less than the item pointed to by the other iterator.

bool iterator::operator!=(const iterator &other) const

bool iterator::operator!=(const const_iterator &other) const

Returns true if other points to a different item than this iterator; otherwise returns false.

See also operator==().

bool iterator::operator==(const iterator &other) const

bool iterator::operator==(const const_iterator &other) const

Returns true if other points to the same item as this iterator; otherwise returns false.

See also operator!=().

iterator::iterator()

Constructs an uninitialized iterator.

Functions like operator*() and operator++() should not be called on an uninitialized iterator. Use operator=() to assign a value to it before using it.

See also QJsonArray::begin() and QJsonArray::end().

QJsonValueRef iterator::operator*() const

Returns a modifiable reference to the current item.

You can change the value of an item by using operator*() on the left side of an assignment.

The return value is of type QJsonValueRef, a helper class for QJsonArray and QJsonObject. When you get an object of type QJsonValueRef, you can use it as if it were a reference to a QJsonValue. If you assign to it, the assignment will apply to the character in the QJsonArray of QJsonObject from which you got the reference.

iterator iterator::operator+(int j) const

Returns an iterator to the item at j positions forward from this iterator. If j is negative, the iterator goes backward.

See also operator-() and operator+=().

iterator &iterator::operator++()

The prefix ++ operator, ++it, advances the iterator to the next item in the array and returns an iterator to the new current item.

Calling this function on QJsonArray::end() leads to undefined results.

See also operator--().

iterator iterator::operator++(int)

This is an overloaded function.

The postfix ++ operator, it++, advances the iterator to the next item in the array and returns an iterator to the previously current item.

iterator &iterator::operator+=(int j)

Advances the iterator by j items. If j is negative, the iterator goes backward.

See also operator-=() and operator+().

iterator iterator::operator-(int j) const

Returns an iterator to the item at j positions backward from this iterator. If j is negative, the iterator goes forward.

See also operator+() and operator-=().

int iterator::operator-(iterator other) const

Returns the number of items between the item pointed to by other and the item pointed to by this iterator.

iterator &iterator::operator--()

The prefix -- operator, --it, makes the preceding item current and returns an iterator to the new current item.

Calling this function on QJsonArray::begin() leads to undefined results.

See also operator++().

iterator iterator::operator--(int)

This is an overloaded function.

The postfix -- operator, it--, makes the preceding item current and returns an iterator to the previously current item.

iterator &iterator::operator-=(int j)

Makes the iterator go back by j items. If j is negative, the iterator goes forward.

See also operator+=() and operator-().

QJsonValueRef *iterator::operator->() const

Returns a pointer to a modifiable reference to the current item.

QJsonValueRef iterator::operator[](int j) const

Returns a modifiable reference to the item at offset j from the item pointed to by this iterator (the item at position *this + j).

This function is provided to make QJsonArray iterators behave like C++ pointers.

The return value is of type QJsonValueRef, a helper class for QJsonArray and QJsonObject. When you get an object of type QJsonValueRef, you can use it as if it were a reference to a QJsonValue. If you assign to it, the assignment will apply to the character in the QJsonArray of QJsonObject from which you got the reference.
