Detailed Description

Specifies which parts of a collection should be fetched from the Akonadi storage.

When collections are fetched from the server either by using CollectionFetchJob explicitly or when it is being used internally by other classes, e.g. Akonadi::Monitor, the scope of the fetch operation can be tailored to the application's current needs.

Note that CollectionFetchScope always includes fetching collection attributes.

There are two supported ways of changing the currently active CollectionFetchScope of classes:

  • in-place: modify the CollectionFetchScope object the other class holds as a member
  • replace: replace the other class' member with a new scope object

Example: modifying a CollectionFetchJob's scope in-place

job->fetchScope().setIncludeUnsubscribed( true );

Example: replacing a CollectionFetchJob's scope

scope.setIncludeUnsubscribed( true );
job->setFetchScope( scope );

This class is implicitly shared.

Member Enumeration Documentation

Describes the ancestor retrieval depth.


No ancestor retrieval at all (the default)


Only retrieve the immediate parent collection.


Retrieve all ancestors, up to Collection::root()

Definition at line 61 of file collectionfetchscope.h.

Describes the list filter.


No filtering, retrieve all collections.


Only retrieve collections for display, taking the local preference and enabled into account.


Only retrieve collections for synchronization, taking the local preference and enabled into account.


Only retrieve collections for indexing, taking the local preference and enabled into account.


Only retrieve enabled collections, ignoring the local preference.

Definition at line 95 of file collectionfetchscope.h.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::CollectionFetchScope ( )

Creates an empty collection fetch scope.

Using an empty scope will only fetch the very basic meta data of collections, e.g. local id, remote id and content mimetypes.

Definition at line 55 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::CollectionFetchScope ( const CollectionFetchScope other)

Creates a new collection fetch scope from an other.

Definition at line 60 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::~CollectionFetchScope ( )

Destroys the collection fetch scope.

Definition at line 65 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

Definition at line 103 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

void Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::fetchAttribute ( const QByteArray type,
bool  fetch = true 

Sets whether the attribute of the given type should be fetched.

typeThe attribute type to fetch.
fetchtrue if the attribute should be fetched, false otherwise.

Definition at line 138 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

template<typename T >
void Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::fetchAttribute ( bool  fetch = true)

Sets whether the attribute of the requested type should be fetched.

fetchtrue if the attribute should be fetched, false otherwise.

Definition at line 219 of file collectionfetchscope.h.

bool Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::fetchIdOnly ( ) const

Sets whether only the id of the tags should be retrieved or the complete tag.

See also

Definition at line 153 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

bool Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::ignoreRetrievalErrors ( ) const

Returns whether retrieval errors should be ignored.

See also

Definition at line 163 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

bool Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::includeStatistics ( ) const

Returns whether collection statistics should be included in the retrieved results.

See also

Definition at line 83 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

bool Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::isEmpty ( ) const

Returns true if there is nothing to fetch.

Definition at line 78 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

CollectionFetchScope::ListFilter Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::listFilter ( ) const

Returns the list filter.

See also

Definition at line 123 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

CollectionFetchScope & Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::operator= ( const CollectionFetchScope other)

Assigns the other to this scope and returns a reference to this scope.

Definition at line 69 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

QString Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::resource ( ) const

Returns the resource identifier that is used as filter.

See also

Definition at line 93 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

void Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::setAncestorFetchScope ( const CollectionFetchScope scope)

Sets the fetch scope for ancestor retrieval.

See also

Definition at line 168 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

void Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::setAncestorRetrieval ( AncestorRetrieval  ancestorDepth)

Sets how many levels of ancestor collections should be included in the retrieval.

Only the ID and the remote ID of the ancestor collections are fetched. If you want more information about the ancestor collections, like their name, you will need to do an additional CollectionFetchJob for them.

ancestorDepthThe desired ancestor retrieval depth.

Definition at line 118 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

void Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::setContentMimeTypes ( const QStringList mimeTypes)

Sets a content mimetypes filter, that is only collections that contain at least one of the given mimetypes (or their parents) are retrieved.

mimeTypesA list of mime types

Definition at line 108 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

void Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::setFetchIdOnly ( bool  fetchIdOnly)

Sets whether only the id or the complete tag should be fetched.

The default is false.


Definition at line 148 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

void Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::setIgnoreRetrievalErrors ( bool  enabled)

Ignore retrieval errors while fetching collections, and always deliver what is available.

This flag is useful to fetch a list of collections, where some might no longer be available.


Definition at line 158 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

void Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::setIncludeStatistics ( bool  include)

Sets whether collection statistics should be included in the retrieved results.

Definition at line 88 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

void Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::setListFilter ( CollectionFetchScope::ListFilter  listFilter)

Sets a filter for the collections to be listed.

Note that collections that do not match the filter are included if required to complete the tree.


Definition at line 128 of file collectionfetchscope.cpp.

void Akonadi::CollectionFetchScope::setResource ( const QString resource)

Sets a resource filter, that is only collections owned by the specified resource are retrieved.

resourceThe resource identifier.
