A text decoder converts text an encoded text format that uses a specific encoding into Qt’s internal representation.
Converting encoded data into a
QString can be achieved using the following code:
encodedString = "..." toUtf16 = QStringDecoder(QStringDecoder.Utf8) string = toUtf16(encodedString)
The decoder remembers any state that is required between calls, so converting data received in chunks, for example, when receiving it over a network, is just as easy, by calling the decoder whenever new data is available:
toUtf16 = QStringDecoder(QStringDecoder.Utf8) string = QString() while new_data_available(): chunk = get_new_data() string += toUtf16(chunk)
QStringDecoder object maintains state between chunks and therefore works correctly even if chunks are split in the middle of a multi-byte character sequence.
QStringDecoder objects can’t be copied because of their internal state, but can be moved.
- class PySide6.QtCore.QStringDecoder¶
name – str
Default constructs an decoder. The default decoder is not valid, and can’t be used for converting text.
- PySide6.QtCore.QStringDecoder.appendToBuffer(out, ba)¶
- Return type
Decodes the sequence of bytes viewed by
in and writes the decoded result into the buffer starting at
out. Returns a pointer to the end of data written.
out needs to be large enough to be able to hold all the decoded data. Use
requiredSpace to determine the maximum size requirements to decode an encoded data buffer of
- Return type
Returns the maximum amount of UTF-16 code units required to be able to process
inputLength encoded data.
