Detailed Description

The QMetaDataReaderControl class provides read access to the meta-data of a QMediaService's media.

If a QMediaService can provide read or write access to the meta-data of its current media it will implement QMetaDataReaderControl. This control provides functions for both retrieving and setting meta-data values. Meta-data may be addressed by the keys defined in the QMediaMetaData namespace.

The functionality provided by this control is exposed to application code by the meta-data members of QMediaObject, and so meta-data access is potentially available in any of the media object classes. Any media service may implement QMetaDataReaderControl.

The interface name of QMetaDataReaderControl is org.qt-project.qt.metadatareadercontrol/5.0 as defined in QMetaDataReaderControl_iid.

See also QMediaService::requestControl() and QMediaObject.

Member Function Documentation

[protected] QMetaDataReaderControl::QMetaDataReaderControl(QObject *parent = nullptr)

Construct a QMetaDataReaderControl with parent. This class is meant as a base class for service specific meta data providers so this constructor is protected.

[virtual] QMetaDataReaderControl::~QMetaDataReaderControl()

Destroy the meta-data object.

[pure virtual] QStringList QMetaDataReaderControl::availableMetaData() const

Returns a list of keys there is meta-data available for.

[pure virtual] bool QMetaDataReaderControl::isMetaDataAvailable() const

Identifies if meta-data is available from a media service.

Returns true if the meta-data is available and false otherwise.

[pure virtual] QVariant QMetaDataReaderControl::metaData(const QString &key) const

Returns the meta-data for the given key.

[signal] void QMetaDataReaderControl::metaDataAvailableChanged(bool available)

Signal the availability of meta-data has changed, available will be true if the multimedia object has meta-data.

[signal] void QMetaDataReaderControl::metaDataChanged()

Signal the changes of meta-data.

If multiple meta-data elements are changed, metaDataChanged(const QString &key, const QVariant &value) signal is emitted for each of them with metaDataChanged() changed emitted once.

Note: Signal metaDataChanged is overloaded in this class. To connect to this signal by using the function pointer syntax, Qt provides a convenient helper for obtaining the function pointer as shown in this example:

connect(metaDataReaderControl, QOverload<>::of(&QMetaDataReaderControl::metaDataChanged),
    [=](){ /* ... */ });

[signal] void QMetaDataReaderControl::metaDataChanged(const QString &key, const QVariant &value)

Signal the changes of one meta-data element value with the given key.

Note: Signal metaDataChanged is overloaded in this class. To connect to this signal by using the function pointer syntax, Qt provides a convenient helper for obtaining the function pointer as shown in this example:

connect(metaDataReaderControl, QOverload<const QString &, const QVariant &>::of(&QMetaDataReaderControl::metaDataChanged),
    [=](const QString &key, const QVariant &value){ /* ... */ });
