The QImageFormatType class is a factory that makes QImageFormat objects. More...
List of all member functions.
Whereas the QImageIO class allows for complete loading of images, QImageFormatType allows for incremental loading of images.
New image file formats are installed by creating objects of derived classes of QImageFormatType. They must implement decoderFor() and formatName().
QImageFormatType is a very simple class. Its only task is to recognize image data in some format and make a new object, subclassed from QImageFormat, which can decode that format.
The factories for formats built into Qt are automatically defined before any other factory is initialized. If two factories would recognize an image format, the factory created last will override the earlier one; you can thus override current and future built-in formats.

Returns a decoder for decoding an image that starts with the bytes in buffer. The length of the data is given in length. This function should only return a decoder if it is certain that the decoder applies to data with the given header. Returns 0 if there is insufficient data in the header to make a positive identification or if the data is not recognized.
Returns the name of the format supported by decoders from this factory. The string is statically allocated.
