Import Statement: import QtQuick.Pdf 5.15
Since: Qt 5.15


Detailed Description

PdfLinkModel provides the geometry and the destination for each link that the specified page contains.

The available model roles are:

rectBounding rectangle around the link.
urlIf the link is a web link, the URL for that; otherwise an empty URL.
pageIf the link is an internal link, the page number to which the link should jump; otherwise -1.
locationIf the link is an internal link, the location on the page to which the link should jump.
zoomIf the link is an internal link, the intended zoom level on the destination page.

Normally it will be used with Repeater to visualize the links and provide the ability to click them:

Repeater {
    model: PdfLinkModel {
        document: root.document
        page: image.currentFrame
    delegate: Rectangle {
        color: "transparent"
        border.color: "lightgrey"
        x: rect.x
        y: rect.y
        width: rect.width
        height: rect.height
        HoverHandler { cursorShape: Qt.PointingHandCursor }
        TapHandler {
            onTapped: {
                if (page >= 0)
                    image.currentFrame = page

Note: General-purpose PDF viewing capabilities are provided by PdfScrollablePageView and PdfMultiPageView. PdfLinkModel is only needed when building PDF view components from scratch.
