Member Function Documentation

QString QWebEngineDownloadItem::path() const

This function is obsolete. It is provided to keep old source code working. We strongly advise against using it in new code.

Use suggestedFileName(), downloadDirectory(), and downloadFileName() instead.

Returns the full target path where data is being downloaded to.

The path includes the file name. The default suggested path is the standard download location and file name is deduced not to overwrite already existing files.

See also setPath().

void QWebEngineDownloadItem::setPath(QString path)

This function is obsolete. It is provided to keep old source code working. We strongly advise against using it in new code.

Use setDownloadDirectory() and setDownloadFileName() instead.

Sets the full target path to download the file to.

The path should also include the file name. The download path can only be set in response to the QWebEngineProfile::downloadRequested() signal before the download is accepted. Past that point, this function has no effect on the download item's state.

See also path().

QWebEngineDownloadItem::DownloadType QWebEngineDownloadItem::type() const

This function is obsolete. It is provided to keep old source code working. We strongly advise against using it in new code.

Returns the requested download's type.

Note: This property works unreliably, except for SavePage downloads. Use isSavePageDownload() instead.

This function was introduced in Qt 5.8.
