A utility type for ignoring certificate errors or rejecting erroneous certificates. More...

Import Statement: import QtWebEngine
Since: QtWebEngine 1.1
Instantiates: QWebEngineCertificateError



Detailed Description

This QML type contains information about a certificate error that occurred. The error property holds the reason that the error occurred and the description property holds a short localized description of the error. The url property holds the URL that triggered the error.

The certificate can be rejected by calling rejectCertificate(), which will stop loading the web engine request. By default, an invalid certificate will be automatically rejected.

The certificate error can be ignored by calling acceptCertificate(), which will resume loading the request.

It is possible to defer the decision of rejecting a certificate by calling defer(), which is useful when waiting for user input.

See also WebEngineView::certificateError.

Method Documentation

void acceptCertificate()

The certificate error is ignored, and the web engine view continues to load the requested URL.

void defer()

This function should be called when there is a need to postpone the decision whether to ignore a certificate error, for example, while waiting for user input. When called, the function pauses the URL request until acceptCertificate() or rejectCertificate() is called.

void rejectCertificate()

The certificate is rejected, and the web engine view stops loading the requested URL.
