Detailed Description

The QContentFilterDialog widget provides a dialog box for selecting content filters.

QContentFilterDialog is based on QContentFilterModel and its contents are defined using a QContentFilterModel::Template.

A content filter dialog may be either single or multiple selection depending on its set model template. The filter selected in a single selection scenario may be retrieved using the selectedFilter() method, and the checkedFilter() method will return the checked filters in a multiple selection scenario. A brief summary of the checked filter's labels may also be retrieved using the checkedLabel() method.

Using a content filter dialog to select an or'ed combination of mime type filters:

    QContentFilter selectMimeTypes()
    {
        QContentFilterDialog dialog(
            QContentFilter::MimeType, QString(), QContentFilterModel::CheckList | QContentFilterModel::SelectAll );

        dialog.setFilter( QContentFilter( QContent::Document ) );

        QtopiaApplication::execDialog( &dialog );

        return dialog.checkedFilters();
    }

Using a content filter dialog to select a an album filter from a list grouped by artist.

    QContentFilter selectAlbum()
    {
        QContentFilterModel::Template albums( QContent::Album );
        QContentFilterModel::Template artists( album, QContent::Artist );

        QContentFilterDialog dialog;

        dialog.setModelTemplate( artists );

        if( QtopiaApplication::execDialog( &dialog ) == QDialog::Accept )
            return dialog.selectedFilter();
        else
            return QContentFilter();
    }
