QtLocation ContactDetail

The ContactDetail type holds a contact detail such as a phone number or a website address.

Import Statement: import QtLocation 5.3
Since: Qt Location 5.0


Detailed Description

The ContactDetail provides a single detail on how one could contact a Place . The ContactDetail consists of a label, which is a localized string describing the contact method, and a value representing the actual contact detail.


The following example demonstrates how to assign a single phone number to a place in JavaScript:

function writeSingle() {
    var phoneNumber = Qt.createQmlObject('import QtLocation 5.3; ContactDetail {}', place);
    phoneNumber.label = "Phone";
    phoneNumber.value = "555-5555"
    place.contactDetails.phone = phoneNumber;

The following demonstrates how to assign multiple phone numbers to a place in JavaScript:

function writeMultiple() {
    var bob = Qt.createQmlObject('import QtLocation 5.3; ContactDetail {}', place);
    bob.label = "Bob";
    bob.value = "555-5555"
    var alice = Qt.createQmlObject('import QtLocation 5.3; ContactDetail {}', place);
    alice.label = "Alice";
    alice.value = "555-8745"
    var numbers = new Array();
    place.contactDetails.phone = numbers;

Note, due to limitations of the QQmlPropertyMap, it is not possible to declaratively specify the contact details in QML, it can only be accomplished via JavaScript.
