Detailed Description

The QKeyValueIterator class provides an STL-style iterator for returning key/value pairs from associative containers like QHash and QMap. It supports the same API as the STL associative containers, i.e. getting a key/value pair when iterating through the container.

This will allow for better interoperability between QMap, QHash and friends and STL-style algorithms.

Warning: Iterators on implicitly shared containers do not work exactly like STL-iterators. You should avoid copying a container while iterators are active on that container. For more information, read Implicit sharing iterator problem.

Member Function Documentation

QKeyValueIterator::QKeyValueIterator(Iterator o)

Constructs a QKeyValueIterator on top of o.

QKeyValueIterator::QKeyValueIterator()

Constructs a default QKeyValueIterator.

Iterator QKeyValueIterator::base() const

Returns the underlying iterator this QKeyValueIterator is based on.

std::pair<Key, T> QKeyValueIterator::operator*() const

Returns the current entry as a pair.

QKeyValueIterator<Key, T, Iterator> &QKeyValueIterator::operator++()

The prefix ++ operator (++i) advances the iterator to the next item in the container and returns the iterator.

Note: Advancing the iterator past its container's end() constitutes undefined behavior.

See also operator--().

QKeyValueIterator<Key, T, Iterator> QKeyValueIterator::operator++(int)

This is an overloaded function.

The postfix ++ operator (i++) advances the iterator to the next item in the container and returns the iterator's prior value.

Note: Advancing the iterator past its container's end() constitutes undefined behavior.

QKeyValueIterator<Key, T, Iterator> &QKeyValueIterator::operator--()

The prefix -- operator (--i) backs the iterator up to the previous item in the container and returns the iterator.

Note: Backing up an iterator to before its container's begin() constitutes undefined behavior.

See also operator++().

QKeyValueIterator<Key, T, Iterator> QKeyValueIterator::operator--(int)

This is an overloaded function.

The postfix -- operator (i--) backs the iterator up to the previous item in the container and returns the iterator's prior value.

Note: Backing up an iterator to before its container's begin() constitutes undefined behavior.

Related Non-Members

bool QKeyValueIterator::operator!=(QKeyValueIterator<Key, T, Iterator> lhs, QKeyValueIterator<Key, T, Iterator> rhs)

Returns true if rhs points to a different item than lhs otherwise returns false.

See also operator==().

bool QKeyValueIterator::operator==(QKeyValueIterator<Key, T, Iterator> lhs, QKeyValueIterator<Key, T, Iterator> rhs)

Returns true if rhs points to the same item as lhs otherwise returns false.

See also operator!=().
