Public Functions

QVariantPointer(const Pointer *pointer)
QVariantRef<Pointer> operator*() const
Pointer operator->() const

Detailed Description

QVariantConstPointer wraps a pointer and returns QVariantRef to it from its operator*(). This makes it suitable as replacement for an actual pointer. We cannot return an actual pointer from generic iterators as the iterators don't hold an actual QVariant.
