This class is part of the Qt 3 support library. It is provided to keep old source code working. We strongly advise against using it in new code. See Porting to Qt 4 for more information.

Detailed Description

The Q3AsciiDictIterator class provides an iterator for Q3AsciiDict collections.

Q3AsciiDictIterator is implemented as a template class. Define a template instance Q3AsciiDictIterator<X> to create a dictionary iterator that operates on Q3AsciiDict<X> (dictionary of X*).

Example:

 Q3AsciiDict<QLineEdit> fields;
 fields.insert( "forename", new QLineEdit( this ) );
 fields.insert( "surname", new QLineEdit( this ) );
 fields.insert( "age", new QLineEdit( this ) );

 fields["forename"]->setText( "Homer" );
 fields["surname"]->setText( "Simpson" );
 fields["age"]->setText( "45" );

 Q3AsciiDictIterator<QLineEdit> it( fields );
 for( ; it.current(); ++it )
     cout << it.currentKey() << ": " << it.current()->text() << endl;
 cout << endl;

 // Output (random order):
 //      age: 45
 //      surname: Simpson
 //      forename: Homer

In the example we insert some line edits into a dictionary, then iterate over the dictionary printing the strings associated with those line edits.

Note that the traversal order is arbitrary; you are not guaranteed any particular order.

Multiple iterators may independently traverse the same dictionary. A Q3AsciiDict knows about all the iterators that are operating on the dictionary. When an item is removed from the dictionary, Q3AsciiDict updates all the iterators that are referring to the removed item to point to the next item in the (arbitrary) traversal order.

See also Q3AsciiDict.


Member Function Documentation

Q3AsciiDictIterator::Q3AsciiDictIterator ( const Q3AsciiDict<type> & dict )

Constructs an iterator for dict. The current iterator item is set to point on the first item in the dict.

Q3AsciiDictIterator::~Q3AsciiDictIterator ()

Destroys the iterator.

uint Q3AsciiDictIterator::count () const

Returns the number of items in the dictionary this iterator operates over.

See also isEmpty().

type * Q3AsciiDictIterator::current () const

Returns a pointer to the current iterator item.

const char * Q3AsciiDictIterator::currentKey () const

Returns a pointer to the key for the current iterator item.

bool Q3AsciiDictIterator::isEmpty () const

Returns TRUE if the dictionary is empty, i.e. count() == 0, otherwise returns FALSE.

See also count().

type * Q3AsciiDictIterator::toFirst ()

Sets the current iterator item to point to the first item in the dictionary and returns a pointer to the item. If the dictionary is empty it sets the current item to 0 and returns 0.

Q3AsciiDictIterator::operator type * () const

Cast operator. Returns a pointer to the current iterator item. Same as current().

type * Q3AsciiDictIterator::operator() ()

Makes the succeeding item current and returns the original current item.

If the current iterator item was the last item in the dictionary or if it was 0, 0 is returned.

type * Q3AsciiDictIterator::operator++ ()

Prefix ++ makes the succeeding item current and returns the new current item.

If the current iterator item was the last item in the dictionary or if it was 0, 0 is returned.

type * Q3AsciiDictIterator::operator+= ( uint jump )

Sets the current item to the item jump positions after the current item, and returns a pointer to that item.

If that item is beyond the last item or if the dictionary is empty, it sets the current item to 0 and returns 0.
