key_iterator Classclass QMultiHash::key_iterator
This class was introduced in Qt 5.6.
|bool||operator!=(key_iterator other) const|
|const Key &||operator*() const|
|const Key *||operator->() const|
|bool||operator==(key_iterator other) const|
However, to have interoperability between QMultiHash's keys and STL-style algorithms we need an iterator that dereferences to a key instead of a value. With QMultiHash::key_iterator we can apply an algorithm to a range of keys without having to call QMultiHash::keys(), which is inefficient as it costs one QMultiHash iteration and memory allocation to create a temporary QList.
// Inefficient, keys() is expensive QList<int> keys = hash.keys(); int numPrimes = std::count_if(keys.cbegin(), keys.cend(), isPrimeNumber); qDeleteAll(hash2.keys()); // Efficient, no memory allocation needed int numPrimes = std::count_if(hash.keyBegin(), hash.keyEnd(), isPrimeNumber); qDeleteAll(hash2.keyBegin(), hash2.keyEnd());
QMultiHash::key_iterator is const, it's not possible to modify the key.
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
const_iterator key_iterator::base() const
true if other points to a different item than this iterator; otherwise returns
See also operator==().
Returns the current item's key.
The prefix ++ operator (
++i) advances the iterator to the next item in the hash and returns an iterator to the new current item.
Calling this function on QMultiHash::keyEnd() leads to undefined results.
This is an overloaded function.
The postfix ++ operator (
i++) advances the iterator to the next item in the hash and returns an iterator to the previous item.
Returns a pointer to the current item's key.
true if other points to the same item as this iterator; otherwise returns
See also operator!=().
