Detailed Description

The QPersistentModelIndex class is used to locate data in a data model.

A QPersistentModelIndex is a model index that can be stored by an application, and later used to access information in a model. Unlike the QModelIndex class, it is safe to store a QPersistentModelIndex since the model will ensure that references to items will continue to be valid as long as they can be accessed by the model.

It is good practice to check that persistent model indexes are valid before using them.

See also Model/View Programming, QModelIndex, and QAbstractItemModel.

Member Function Documentation

QPersistentModelIndex::QPersistentModelIndex ( const QModelIndex & index )

Creates a new QPersistentModelIndex that is a copy of the model index.

QPersistentModelIndex::QPersistentModelIndex ( const QPersistentModelIndex & other )

Creates a new QPersistentModelIndex that is a copy of the other persistent model index.

QModelIndex QPersistentModelIndex::child ( int row, int column ) const

Returns the child of the model index that is stored in the given row and column.

See also parent() and sibling().

int QPersistentModelIndex::column () const

Returns the column this persistent model index refers to.

QVariant QPersistentModelIndex::data ( int role = Qt::DisplayRole ) const

Returns the data for the given role for the item referred to by the index.

See also Qt::ItemDataRole and QAbstractItemModel::setData().

Qt::ItemFlags QPersistentModelIndex::flags () const

Returns the flags for the item referred to by the index.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

bool QPersistentModelIndex::isValid () const

Returns true if this persistent model index is valid; otherwise returns false.

A valid index belongs to a model, and has non-negative row and column numbers.

See also model(), row(), and column().

const QAbstractItemModel * QPersistentModelIndex::model () const

Returns the model that the index belongs to.

QModelIndex QPersistentModelIndex::parent () const

Returns the parent QModelIndex for this persistent index, or an invalid QModelIndex if it has no parent.

See also child(), sibling(), and model().

int QPersistentModelIndex::row () const

Returns the row this persistent model index refers to.

QModelIndex QPersistentModelIndex::sibling ( int row, int column ) const

Returns the sibling at row and column or an invalid QModelIndex if there is no sibling at this position.

See also parent() and child().

QPersistentModelIndex::operator const QModelIndex & () const

Cast operator that returns a const QModelIndex&.

bool QPersistentModelIndex::operator!= ( const QPersistentModelIndex & other ) const

Returns true if this persistent model index is not equal to the other persistent model index; otherwise returns false.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

bool QPersistentModelIndex::operator!= ( const QModelIndex & other ) const

Returns true if this persistent model index does not refer to the same location as the other model index; otherwise returns false.

bool QPersistentModelIndex::operator< ( const QPersistentModelIndex & other ) const

Returns true if this persistent model index is smaller than the other persistent model index; otherwise returns false.

All values in the persistent model index are used when comparing with another persistent model index.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.1.

QPersistentModelIndex & QPersistentModelIndex::operator= ( const QPersistentModelIndex & other )

Sets the persistent model index to refer to the same item in a model as the other persistent model index.

QPersistentModelIndex & QPersistentModelIndex::operator= ( const QModelIndex & other )

Sets the persistent model index to refer to the same item in a model as the other model index.

bool QPersistentModelIndex::operator== ( const QPersistentModelIndex & other ) const

Returns true if this persistent model index is equal to the other persistent model index; otherwise returns false.

All values in the persistent model index are used when comparing with another persistent model index.

bool QPersistentModelIndex::operator== ( const QModelIndex & other ) const

Returns true if this persistent model index refers to the same location as the other model index; otherwise returns false.

All values in the persistent model index are used when comparing with another model index.
