Here is a list of changes to make to your application so that it can take advantage of the new KStatusNotifierItem (KSNI) class, available since KDE 4.4.
- KSNI constructor takes a QObject, not a QWidget
- Be sure to set the category of your application with setCategory()
- activated() becomes activateRequested(bool active, QPoint pos)
- Plasma systemtray will emit secondaryActivateRequested() when a user middle-click on the icon (other implementations may not support this though)
Icons can be passed as a QString or as a QPixmap. Note that both must go through D-Bus, so for performance reasons, pass icons by name whenever possible.
- setIcon() becomes either setIconByName(QString) or setIconByPixmap(QPixmap)
A KSNI tooltip is made of an icon, a title and a subtitle (which may contain some limited markup).
This means you have to replace your call to setToolTip(QString) with calls to:
- setToolTipIconByName(QString) or setToolTipIconByPixmap()
show() -> setStatus(KStatusNotifierItem::Active)
hide() -> setStatus(KStatusNotifierItem::Passive)
- There is no equivalent for the convenience static loadIcon(QString) function. You have to replace it with KIconLoader::global()->loadIcon(name, KIconLoader::Panel)
