Detailed Description

The QHttpRequestHeader class contains request header information for HTTP.

This class is used in the QHttp class to report the header information if the client requests something from the server.

HTTP requests have a method which describes the request's action. The most common requests are "GET" and "POST". In addition to the request method the header also includes a request-URI to specify the location for the method to use.

The method, request-URI and protocol-version can be set using a constructor or later using setRequest(). The values can be obtained using method(), path(), majorVersion() and minorVersion().

Note that the request-URI must be in the format expected by the HTTP server. That is, all reserved characters must be encoded in %HH (where HH are two hexadecimal digits). See QUrl::toPercentEncoding() for more information.

Important inherited functions: setValue() and value().

See also QHttpResponseHeader and QHttp.

Member Function Documentation

QHttpRequestHeader::QHttpRequestHeader ()

Constructs an empty HTTP request header.

QHttpRequestHeader::QHttpRequestHeader ( const QString & method, const QString & path, int majorVer = 1, int minorVer = 1 )

Constructs a HTTP request header for the method method, the request-URI path and the protocol-version majorVer and minorVer. The path argument must be properly encoded for an HTTP request.

QHttpRequestHeader::QHttpRequestHeader ( const QHttpRequestHeader & header )

Constructs a copy of header.

QHttpRequestHeader::QHttpRequestHeader ( const QString & str )

Constructs a HTTP request header from the string str. The str should consist of one or more "\r\n" delimited lines; the first line should be the request-line (format: method, space, request-URI, space HTTP-version); each of the remaining lines should have the format key, colon, space, value.

int QHttpRequestHeader::majorVersion () const [virtual]

Reimplemented from QHttpHeader::majorVersion().

Returns the major protocol-version of the HTTP request header.

See also minorVersion(), method(), path(), and setRequest().

QString QHttpRequestHeader::method () const

Returns the method of the HTTP request header.

See also path(), majorVersion(), minorVersion(), and setRequest().

int QHttpRequestHeader::minorVersion () const [virtual]

Reimplemented from QHttpHeader::minorVersion().

Returns the minor protocol-version of the HTTP request header.

See also majorVersion(), method(), path(), and setRequest().

QString QHttpRequestHeader::path () const

Returns the request-URI of the HTTP request header.

See also method(), majorVersion(), minorVersion(), and setRequest().

void QHttpRequestHeader::setRequest ( const QString & method, const QString & path, int majorVer = 1, int minorVer = 1 )

This function sets the request method to method, the request-URI to path and the protocol-version to majorVer and minorVer. The path argument must be properly encoded for an HTTP request.

See also method(), path(), majorVersion(), and minorVersion().

QString QHttpRequestHeader::toString () const [virtual]

Reimplemented from QHttpHeader::toString().

QHttpRequestHeader & QHttpRequestHeader::operator= ( const QHttpRequestHeader & header )

Copies the content of header into this QHttpRequestHeader
