Using WebKit 21 |||| Using WebKit WebKit is an open source web content rendering and editing engine that was originally created by KDE (‘K’ Desktop Environment) developers. WebKit is now used as the basis for many web browsers, including Google’s Chrome, KDE’s Konqueror, and Mac OS X’s Safari, and is also used by most web-enabled mobile devices. WebKit aims to be standards compliant, and supports all the standard web technologies, including HTML5, SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets—including CSS 3 Web Fonts), and JavaScript.

We then try to retrieve the icon from the cache using the URL as the key. The QCache::object() method returns 0 if there is no item in the cache with the corresponding key. If we retrieved a QIcon pointer from the cache we use it—in fact we get a copy (which is cheap because Qt uses copy-on-write, and useful since QCache can delete items at any time). Otherwise we use the icon network access manager to download the icon. And if we initiate downloading an icon, the signal–slot connection set up earlier will ensure that the readIcon() slot (covered shortly) is called when the download has finished.

Otherwise we check to see if the QString scriptOrScriptName private member variable holds an actual script or only the name of a script; and in the latter case we attempt to read in the script’s text. Instead of creating a QTextStream, we open the file in binary mode and convert the QByteArray returned by the QFile::readAll() method into Unicode using the static QString::fromUtf8() method. Once the script is ready we tell the QWebPage’s main frame to evaluate it, and then we notify any connected objects that we have successfully finished.
