Member Function Documentation

[signal] void SearchResult::activated(const Utils::SearchResultItem &item)

Indicates that the user activated the search result item by double-clicking it, for example.

[slot] void SearchResult::addResult(const Utils::SearchResultItem &item)

Adds a single result line to the Search Results output pane.

item.mainRange() specifies the region from the beginning of the search term through its length that should be visually marked. item.path(), item.text() are shown on the result line. You can attach arbitrary item.userData() to the search result, which can be used, for example, when reacting to the signals of the search results for your search.

See also addResults().

[slot] void SearchResult::addResults(const Utils::SearchResultItems &items, Core::SearchResult::AddMode mode)

Adds the search result items to the Search Results output pane using mode.

See also addResult().

QWidget *SearchResult::additionalReplaceWidget() const

Returns a UI for a global search and replace action.

See also setAdditionalReplaceWidget().

[signal] void SearchResult::canceled()

This signal is emitted if the user cancels the search.

int SearchResult::count() const

Returns the number of search hits.

[signal] void SearchResult::countChanged(int count)

This signal is emitted when the number of search hits changes to count.

[slot] void SearchResult::finishSearch(bool canceled, const QString &reason = {})

Notifies the Search Results output pane that the current search has been canceled for the specified reason, and the UI should reflect that.

[signal] void SearchResult::paused(bool paused)

This signal is emitted when the search status is set to paused.

Opens the Search Results output pane with this search.

[signal] void SearchResult::replaceButtonClicked(const QString &replaceText, const Utils::SearchResultItems &checkedItems, bool preserveCase)

Indicates that the user initiated a text replace by selecting Replace All, for example.

The signal reports the text to use for replacement in replaceText, the list of search result items that were selected by the user in checkedItems, and whether a search and replace should preserve the case of the replaced strings in preserveCase. The handler of this signal should apply the replace only on the selected items.

[slot] void SearchResult::restart()

Removes all search results.

[signal] void SearchResult::searchAgainRequested()

This signal is emitted when the Search Again button is selected.

void SearchResult::setAdditionalReplaceWidget(QWidget *widget)
