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

  1. 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! dialog.setUploadFile("some_url_here");

// 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) dialog.exec();

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.

[KNewStuff3] ProvidersUrl= UploadCategories=KDE Wallpaper 1920x1200,KDE Wallpaper 1600x1200

Linking in CMakeLists.txt

To link against KNS3, just link against ${KDE4_KNEWSTUFF3_LIBS}. Example:

target_link_libraries(ktexteditor_codesnippets_core ${KDE4_KDEUI_LIBS} ${KDE4_KTEXTEDITOR_LIBS} ${KDE4_KNEWSTUFF3_LIBS})
