Detailed Description

The QPlaceSearchResult class is the base class for search results.

A list of search results can be retrieved from the QPlaceSearchReply after it has successfully completed the request. Common to all search results are the title and icon, which can be used to present the search result to the user.

The intended usage is that depending on the type, the search result can be converted to a more detailed subclass like so:

if (result.type() == QPlaceSearchResult::PlaceResult) {
    QPlaceResult placeResult = result;
    qDebug() << placeResult.place().name();
    qDebug() << placeResult.place().location().coordinate();
    qDebug() << placeResult.distance();

The implementation is handled in such a way that object slicing is not an issue. It is not expected that client applications or backend plugins instantiate a QPlaceSearchResult directly, but rather client applications simply convert to search result subclasses and backend plugins only instantiate subclasses.

See also QPlaceResult.
