Detailed Description

This is a convenience class for KService.

You can use it if you have a KService describing a KDataTool. In this case the KDataToolInfo class is more convenient to work with.

Especially useful is the method createTool which creates the datatool described by the service.

Member Function Documentation

QStringList KDataToolInfo::commands ( ) const

Returns the list of commands the DataTool can execute.

The application passes the command to the KDataTool::run method.

This list comes from the Commands field of the tool's desktop file.

Each of the strings returned corresponds to a string in the list returned by userCommands.

the list of commands the DataTool can execute, suitable for the KDataTool::run method.

QString KDataToolInfo::componentName ( ) const

The instance of the service.

KDataTool * KDataToolInfo::createTool ( QObject parent = nullptr) const

Creates the data tool described by this KDataToolInfo.

QString KDataToolInfo::dataType ( ) const

Returns the data type that the DataTool can accept.

the C++ data type that this DataTool accepts. For example "QString" or "QImage" or something more complicated.

Definition at line 84 of file kdatatool.cpp.

QString KDataToolInfo::iconName ( ) const

Returns the icon name for this DataTool.

Definition at line 111 of file kdatatool.cpp.

bool KDataToolInfo::isReadOnly ( ) const

Checks whether the DataTool is read-only.

true if the DataTool does not modify the data passed to it by KDataTool::run.

Definition at line 102 of file kdatatool.cpp.

bool KDataToolInfo::isValid ( ) const

A DataToolInfo may be invalid if the KService passed to its constructor does not feature the service type "KDataTool".

true if valid, false otherwise

Definition at line 205 of file kdatatool.cpp.

QStringList KDataToolInfo::mimeTypes ( ) const

Returns a list of mime type that will be accepted by the DataTool.

The mimetypes are only used if the dataType can be used to store different mimetypes. For example in a "QString" you could save "text/plain" or "text/html" or "text/xml".

the mime types accepted by this DataTool. For example "image/gif" or "text/plain". In some cases the dataType determines the accepted type of data perfectly. In this cases this list may be empty.

QStringList KDataToolInfo::userCommands ( ) const

Returns a list of strings that you can put in a QPopupMenu item, for example to offer the DataTools services to the user.

The returned value is usually something like "Spell checking", "Shrink Image", "Rotate Image" or something like that. This list comes from the Comment field of the tool's desktop file (so that it can be translated).

Each of the strings returned corresponds to a string in the list returned by commands.
