Synopsis

Detailed Description

QXmlNodeModelIndex is an index into an XML node model . It contains:

Because QXmlNodeModelIndex is intentionally a simple class, it doesn’t have member functions for accessing the properties of nodes. For example, it doesn’t have functions for getting a node’s name or its list of attributes or child nodes. If you find that you need to retrieve this kind of information from your query results, there are two ways to proceed.

The second case is explained by example. Suppose you want to populate a list widget with the values of certain attributes from a set of result elements. You could write an XQuery to return the set of elements, and then you would write the code to iterate over the result elements, get their attributes, and extract the desired string values. But the simpler way is to just augment your XQuery to finding the desired attribute values. Then all you have to do is evaluate the XQuery using the version of evaluateTo() that populates a QStringList , which you can send directly to your widget.

QXmlNodeModelIndex doesn’t impose any restrictions on the data value an QXmlNodeModelIndex should contain. The meaning of the data left to the associated node model . Because QXmlNodeModelIndex depends on a particular subclass of QAbstractXmlNodeModel for its existence, the only way you can create an instance of QXmlNodeModelIndex is by asking the node model to create one for you with createIndex() . Since that function is protected, it is usually a good idea to write a public function that creates a QXmlNodeModelIndex from arguments that are appropriate for your particular node model.

A default constructed node index is said to be null, i.e., isNull() returns true.

QXmlNodeModelIndex and QAbstractXmlNodeModel follow the same design pattern used for QModelIndex and QAbstractItemModel .

kind()

PySide2.QtXmlPatterns.QXmlNodeModelIndex.DocumentOrder

Identifies the specific node comparison operator that should be used.

Constant

Description

QXmlNodeModelIndex.Precedes

Signifies the \<\< operator. Test whether the first operand precedes the second in the document.

QXmlNodeModelIndex.Follows

Signifies the \>\> operator. Test whether the first operand follows the second in the document.

QXmlNodeModelIndex.Is

Signifies the is operator. Test whether two nodes have the same node identity.

PySide2.QtXmlPatterns.QXmlNodeModelIndex.additionalData()
Return type

qint64

Returns the second data value. The node index holds two data values. data() returns the first one.

data()

PySide2.QtXmlPatterns.QXmlNodeModelIndex.data()
Return type

qint64

Returns the first data value. The node index holds two data values. additionalData() returns the second one.

additionalData()

PySide2.QtXmlPatterns.QXmlNodeModelIndex.internalPointer()
Return type

void

Returns the first data value as a void* pointer.

additionalData()

PySide2.QtXmlPatterns.QXmlNodeModelIndex.isNull()
Return type

bool

Returns true if this QXmlNodeModelIndex is a default constructed value, otherwise false.

A null QXmlNodeModelIndex doesn’t represent any node and cannot be used in conjunction with QAbstractXmlNodeModel .

PySide2.QtXmlPatterns.QXmlNodeModelIndex.model()
Return type

QAbstractXmlNodeModel

Returns the QAbstractXmlNodeModel that this node index refers to. QXmlNodeModelIndex does not own QAbstractXmlNodeModel and does not keep track of its lifetime, so this pointer will dangle if the QAbstractXmlNodeModel is deallocated first.

There is no setter for the node model because instances of QXmlNodeModelIndex instances are only created with createIndex() .

PySide2.QtXmlPatterns.QXmlNodeModelIndex.__ne__(other)
Parameters

otherQXmlNodeModelIndex

Return type

bool

Returns true if other is the same node as this.

PySide2.QtXmlPatterns.QXmlNodeModelIndex.__eq__(other)
Parameters

otherQXmlNodeModelIndex

Return type

bool

Returns true if this node is the same as other . This operator does not compare values, children, or names of nodes. It compares node identities, i.e., whether two nodes are from the same document and are found at the exact same place.
