Detailed Description

This class describes the interface between the KMyMoney application and it's IMPORTER plugins.

All importer plugins must provide this interface.

Member Function Documentation

virtual QStringList KMyMoneyPlugin::ImporterPlugin::formatMimeTypes ( ) const
pure virtual

This method returns the list of the MIME types that this plugin handles, e.g.

{"application/x-ofx", "application/x-qfx"}. Be specific: don't use generic types, like "text/plain", which many other types inherit from, and which would result in isMyFormat() returning false positives.

QStringList List of MIME types
virtual bool KMyMoneyPlugin::ImporterPlugin::import ( const QString filename)
pure virtual

Import a file.

filenameFile to import
bool Whether the import was successful.
bool KMyMoneyPlugin::ImporterPlugin::isMyFormat ( const QString filename) const

This method checks whether the file provided is of expected format.

The default implementation checks whether the file's MIME type inherits any of the types provided by formatMimeTypes().

filenameFully-qualified pathname to a file
bool Whether the indicated file is importable by this plugin

virtual QString KMyMoneyPlugin::ImporterPlugin::lastError ( ) const
pure virtual

Returns the error result of the last import.

QString English-language name of the error encountered in the last import, or QString() if it was successful.
