Detailed Description

The QNetworkSettingsService::connectService() method is used to connect to a Wifi network. The network name is specified by using a service set identifier (SSID). If no password is needed, the connection is created immediately. QNetworkSettingsService::state property can be used to monitor the state of the connection.

If a password is needed, the QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::showUserCredentialsInput() signal is emitted. To create a connection, the password is set by using the QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::setPassphrase() method.

See also QNetworkSettingsManager.

Member Function Documentation

QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::QNetworkSettingsUserAgent(QObject *parent = Q_NULLPTR)

Creates a user agent with the parent parent.

[signal] void QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::error()

This signal is emitted when the connection failed due to invalid user credentials.

[signal] void QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::ready(bool cancel)

This signal is emitted when the user has either submitted the password for the network, or if cancel is true, cancelled the password query.

[signal] void QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::requestNextConnection()

This signal is emitted when the network manager attempts to connect using the next network interface in the model.

[signal] void QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::showUserCredentialsInput()

This signal is emitted when user credentials are required for connecting to a Wifi network.

See also QNetworkSettingsService::connectService().

void QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::cancelInput()

Cancels the user credentials input request.

Note: This function can be invoked via the meta-object system and from QML. See Q_INVOKABLE.

void QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::clearConnectionState()

Clears the connection state.

QString QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::passphrase() const

Returns the password of the user agent.

See also setPassphrase().

void QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::setPassphrase(const QString &passphrase)

Sets the password for connecting to a Wifi network to passphrase.

This method needs to be called in response to receiving the showUserCredentialsInput() signal.

Note: This function can be invoked via the meta-object system and from QML. See Q_INVOKABLE.

void QNetworkSettingsUserAgent::setSsidAndPassphrase(const QString &ssid, const QString &passphrase)

Sets the name of the network to ssid and the password of the user agent to passphrase.
