The WebKitKDE library sits on top of QtWebKit, providing KDE integration (for example, WebActions using KDE icons and shortcuts, downloading using KIO, etc). WebKitKDE provides the following classes:


A QWebView with KDE integration.

  • KWebPage* KWebView::page() : Overridden from QWebView, it return a KWebPage instead of a QWebPage.
  • QWidget* KWebView::searchBar() : Get a search bar widget, usable for searching the page.
  • void setCustomContextMenu(bool) [slot] : Should KWebView use it's own context menu, or should it emit a signal on right-click.
  • void showContextMenu() [signal] : If setCustomContextMenu is set to true, this signal will be emited when the user right-clicks on the page.
  • void openUrlInNewTab(const KUrl) [signal] : When the user middle-clicks a link, instead of opening it, KWebView will emit this signal. In tab-enabled browsers, this usually results in opening a new tab.
  • void load(const KUrl&, const KParts::OpenUrlArguments&, const KParts::BrowserArguments&) : convenience function similar to QWebView::load(), but for KParts-style arguments instead.


A QWebPage with KDE integration.

  • void setAllowExternalContent(bool) : Useful for, as an example, email applications: should this KWebPage be allowed to request content from the web?
  • bool isExternalContentAllowed() : Will this KWebPage load content from the web?

KIO/AccessManger, KIO/AccessMangerReply (before: KNetworkAccessManager, KNetworkReply)

Overwrites the default QtNetwork based QNetworkAccessManager for KIO-based network-interaction. Also supplies a few special additions (like the rest of WebKitKDE does).

  • void setAllowExternalContent(bool) : Should this AccessManager load content from the web?
  • bool isExternalContentAllowed() : Will this AccessManager load content from the web?
