[edit] Overview

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 openDesktop.org and other websites that implement the Open Collaboration Services API.

[edit] 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)

[edit] 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
