cleanup confusing sections and fix sections which contain a todo


Adding an upload dialog to an application is straight forward. If you already have a download dialog, you just need to add a few lines to the .knsrc file and create the dialog. Uploading currently only works with and other websites that implement the Open Collaboration Services API.

The Code

#include <knewstuff3/uploaddialog.h>

// create the dialog
KNS3::UploadDialog dialog(parentWidget);

// set it up to help the user fill it out
// the file to be uploaded - this is important!

// a suggested title, the user can still change it
// don't set it if you can't make a reasonable suggestion
dialog.setUploadName("A suggested title for the upload");

// a longer description, optional
dialog.setDescription("This is a great file. It was created using foo.");

// show the dialog as modal (you can also use show of course)

The Configuration File (.knsrc)

In addition to the download version, you need to add UploadCategories, to set up where the contents can be uploaded to.

UploadCategories=KDE Wallpaper 1920x1200,KDE Wallpaper 1600x1200

NB: If you are expecting to use the KDE Store, you do not need to add the ProvidersUrl entry, as this will default to the correct location for the KDE Store.

Linking in CMakeLists.txt

To link against KNS3, just link against KF5::NewStuff. Example:

target_link_libraries(ktexteditor_codesnippets_core Qt5::Widgets KF5::TextEditor KF5::NewStuff)
