Import Statement: import QtLocation 5.3
Since: Qt Location 5.5


Detailed Description

The ImageModel is a read-only model used to fetch images related to a Place. Binding a Place via ImageModel::place initiates an initial fetch of images. The model performs fetches incrementally and is intended to be used in conjunction with a View such as a ListView. When the View reaches the last of the images currently in the model, a fetch is performed to retrieve more if they are available. The View is automatically updated as the images are received. The number of images which are fetched at a time is specified by the batchSize property. The total number of images available can be accessed via the totalCount property.

The model returns data for the following roles:

urlurlThe URL of the image.
imageIdstringThe identifier of the image.
mimeTypestringThe MIME type of the image.
supplierSupplierThe supplier of the image.
userUserThe user who contributed the image.
attributionstringAttribution text which must be displayed when displaying the image.


The following example shows how to display images for a place:

import QtQuick 2.0
import QtPositioning 5.5
import QtLocation 5.6

ImageModel {
    id: imageModel
    batchSize: 3
    place: place

ListView {
    width: parent.width
    spacing: 10

    model: imageModel
    orientation: ListView.Horizontal
    snapMode: ListView.SnapOneItem

    delegate: Item {
        width: listView.width
        height: listView.height

        Image {
            anchors.fill: parent
            source: url
            fillMode: Image.PreserveAspectFit

        Text {
            text: + "\n" + supplier.url
            width: parent.width
            anchors.bottom: parent.bottom
