Qt Mobility Tech Preview - Document Gallery API

  • Today we’ve released a Technology Preview package containing the new APIs planned for QtMobility 1.1.0.

    The Document Gallery API is one of the API’s introduced in this package, and we’d like to hear what you think about it. The technology preview is a snapshot of work in progress, so your comments and suggestions here can influence the Document Gallery API and help shape it into a truly useful cross platform API for Qt developers.

    We’ll continue to announce the availability of new packages on QtLabs, but DevNet is where we’ll be looking for your feedback on the Document Gallery API.

  • To check that I understood the QGalleryRemoveRequest correct...

    It removes item from a gallery, but does it affect the whole operating system or just the future search results of the application? I would think the former, since the requests are talking "to the system file indexing service". How can I reverse this operation?

  • QGalleryRemoveRequest affects the whole operating system. There's no way to reverse the operation from within the document gallery API. If the document is in the crawl path of the indexer it may get added back automatically (which admittedly isn't ideal) if the indexer doesn't blacklist removed files. Otherwise if a document was inserted by other means it could be restored by repeating that process.
