Detailed Description

The QPlaceIcon class represents an icon.

The typical usage of an icon is to use the url() function to specify a preferred icon size.

QUrl iconSourceUrl = place.icon().url(QSize(32,32));

//A default icon may also be requested like so
iconSourceUrl = place.icon().url();

The icons are typically backend dependent, if a manager backend does not support a given size, the URL of the icon that most closely matches those parameters is returned.

The icon class also has a key-value set of parameters. The precise key one needs to use depends on the plugin being used. These parameters influence which icon URL is returned by the manager and may also be used to specify icon URL locations when saving icons.

If there is only ever one image for an icon, then QPlaceIcon::SingleUrl can be used as a parameter key with a QUrl as the associated value. If this key is set, then the url() function will always return the specified URL and not defer to any manager.

QVariantMap QPlaceIcon::parameters() const

void QPlaceIcon::setManager(QPlaceManager *manager)

void QPlaceIcon::setParameters(const QVariantMap &parameters)

Sets the parameters of the icon to parameters.

See also parameters().

QUrl QPlaceIcon::url(const QSize &size = QSize()) const

Returns an icon URL according to the given size.

If no manager has been assigned to the icon, and the parameters do not contain the QPlaceIcon::SingleUrl key, a default constructed QUrl is returned.

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

Returns true if other is not equal to this icon, otherwise returns false.

QPlaceIcon &QPlaceIcon::operator=(const QPlaceIcon &other)

Assigns other to this icon and returns a reference to this icon.

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

Returns true if this icon is equal to other, otherwise returns false.

Member Variable Documentation
