Detailed Description

The QRadioData class provides interfaces to the RDS functionality of the system radio.

The radio data object will emit signals for any changes in radio data. You can enable or disable alternative frequency with setAlternativeFrequenciesEnabled().

You can get a QRadioData instance fromt the radioData property from a QRadioTuner instance.

radio = new QRadioTuner;
radioData = radio->radioData();

Alternatively, you can pass an instance of QRadioTuner to the constructor to QRadioData.

See also Radio Overview.

Member Function Documentation

QRadioData::QRadioData(QMediaObject *mediaObject, QObject *parent = nullptr)

Constructs a radio data based on a mediaObject and parent.

The mediaObject should be an instance of QRadioTuner. It is preferable to use the radioData property on a QRadioTuner instance to get an instance of QRadioData.

During construction, this class is bound to the mediaObject using the bind() method.

[virtual] QRadioData::~QRadioData()

Destroys a radio data.

[signal] void QRadioData::alternativeFrequenciesEnabledChanged(bool enabled)

Signals that automatically tuning to alternative frequencies has been enabled or disabled according to enabled.

Note: Notifier signal for property alternativeFrequenciesEnabled.

QMultimedia::AvailabilityStatus QRadioData::availability() const

Returns the availability of the radio data service.

A long as there is a media service which provides radio functionality, then the availability will be that of the radio tuner.

QRadioData::Error QRadioData::error() const

Returns the error state of a radio data.

See also errorString().

[signal] void QRadioData::error(QRadioData::Error error)

Signals that an error occurred.

Note: Signal error is overloaded in this class. To connect to this signal by using the function pointer syntax, Qt provides a convenient helper for obtaining the function pointer as shown in this example:

connect(radioData, QOverload<QRadioData::Error>::of(&QRadioData::error),
    [=](QRadioData::Error error){ /* ... */ });

QString QRadioData::errorString() const

Returns a description of a radio data's error state.

See also error().

[override virtual] QMediaObject *QRadioData::mediaObject() const

Reimplemented from QMediaBindableInterface::mediaObject().

See also setMediaObject().

[signal] void QRadioData::programTypeChanged(QRadioData::ProgramType programType)

Signals that the Program Type code has changed to programType

Note: Notifier signal for property programType.

[signal] void QRadioData::programTypeNameChanged(QString programTypeName)

Signals that the Program Type Name has changed to programTypeName

Note: Notifier signal for property programTypeName.

[signal] void QRadioData::radioTextChanged(QString radioText)

Signals that the Radio Text property has changed to radioText

Note: Notifier signal for property radioText.

[override virtual protected] bool QRadioData::setMediaObject(QMediaObject *mediaObject)

Reimplemented from QMediaBindableInterface::setMediaObject().

See also mediaObject().

[signal] void QRadioData::stationIdChanged(QString stationId)

Signals that the Program Identification code has changed to stationId

Note: Notifier signal for property stationId.

[signal] void QRadioData::stationNameChanged(QString stationName)

Signals that the Program Service has changed to stationName

Note: Notifier signal for property stationName.
