Member Function Documentation

[static] QProtobufMessagePointer QProtobufMessage::constructByName(const QString &messageType)

Constructs QProtobufMessage using messageType. Returns a pointer to the constructed QProtobufMessage.

This function attempts to create a message whose type matches messageType. If messageType is unknown, the function returns nullptr. If the message is not found in the registry, the function returns nullptr. Ownership of the constructed message is given to the function caller.

QVariant QProtobufMessage::property(QAnyStringView propertyName) const

Get the value of the property propertyName.

If the propertyName isn't known then the returned QVariant is invalid.

See also setProperty().

bool QProtobufMessage::setProperty(QAnyStringView propertyName, const QVariant &value)

Set the property propertyName to the value stored in value.

If the propertyName isn't a part of the known fields then the value will not be written and the function returns false.

Returns false if it failed to store the value on the property. Otherwise true.

See also property().

[since 6.6] bool QProtobufMessage::setProperty(QAnyStringView propertyName, QVariant &&value)

This is an overloaded function.

This function was introduced in Qt 6.6.
