Detailed Description

The QMailAddress class provides an interface for manipulating message address strings.

QMailAddress provides functions for splitting the address strings of messages into name and address components, and for combining the individual components into correctly formatted address strings. QMailAddress can be used to manipulate the address elements exposed by the QMailMessage class.

Address strings are expected to use the format "name_part '<'address_part'>'", where name_part describes a message sender or recipient and address_part defines the address at which they can be contacted. The address component is not validated, so it can contain an email address, phone number, or any other type of textual address representation.

See also QMailMessage.

See also matchContact().

QString QMailAddress::displayName ( QContactModel & fromModel ) const

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience.

Returns a name to represent the address by querying the existing QContactModel fromModel. If the address matches that of a stored Contact then the display name will be the contact's label. If no matching Contact is found, the name component of the address will be returned.

See also matchContact().

QList<QMailAddress> QMailAddress::fromStringList ( const QString & list )   [static]

Returns a list containing a QMailAddress object constructed from each comma-separated address in list.

QList<QMailAddress> QMailAddress::fromStringList ( const QStringList & list )   [static]

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience.

Returns a list containing a QMailAddress object constructed from each address string in list.

QList<QMailAddress> QMailAddress::groupMembers () const

Returns a list containing the individual addresses that comprise the address group. If the address is not a group address, an empty list is returned.

See also isGroup().

QContact QMailAddress::matchContact ( QContactModel & fromModel ) const

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience.

Find the stored Contact whose email address or phone number matches the address component of the address text within the existing QContactModel fromModel. If no matching contact is found, a null Contact is returned.
