Supplier QML Type

Holds data regarding the supplier of a place, a place's image, review, or editorial. More...

Import Statement: import QtLocation 5.3
Since: Qt Location 5.5


Detailed Description

Each instance represents a set of data about a supplier, which can include supplier's name, url and icon. The supplier is typically a business or organization.

Note: The Places API only supports suppliers as 'retrieve-only' objects. Submitting suppliers to a provider is not a supported use case.


The following example shows how to create and display a supplier in QML:

import QtQuick 2.0
import QtPositioning 5.5
import QtLocation 5.6

Supplier {
    id: placeSupplier
    name: "Example"
    url: ""

Text {
    text: "This place is was provided by " + + "\n" + placeSupplier.url
