Format-specific Configuration Variables

The format-specific configuration variables define the generated documentation's style, or define the contents of the documentation's footer or postheader.

Some of the configuration values are relevant only for the HTML output format and their values contain raw HTML.

The HTML.footer variable defines the content of the generated HTML documentation's footer.

The footer is rendered at the bottom of the generated documentation page.

The variable's value is given as raw HTML code enclosed by quotation marks. Note that if the value spans several lines, each line needs to be enclosed by quotation marks.

HTML.footer = "<p /><address><hr /><div align=\"center\">\n" \
              ...
              "</tr></table></div></address>"

<FORMAT>.nosubdirs

A boolean value which, when true, enables single-directory output mode; all generated files go to FORMAT.outputsubdir directory, instead of a subdirectory based on the documentation project name.

<FORMAT>.outputsubdir

Defines the subdirectory under outputdir where documentation is generated.

HTML.nosubdirs = true
HTML.outputsubdir = html

With above, the output goes to <outputdir>/html.

HTML.postheader

The HTML.postheader variable defines the content of the generated HTML documentation's postheader.

The header is rendered at the top of the generated documentation page.

The variable's value is given as raw HTML enclosed by quotation marks. Note that if the value spans several lines, each line needs to be enclosed by quotation marks.

HTML.postheader = "<table border=\"0\"..." \
                  ...
                  "<img src=\"images/qt-logo.png\" \
                  "align=\"right\" width=\"203\" height=\"32\""\
                 "border=\"0\" />" \
                  "</td></tr>" \
                  "</table>"

The complete variable entry in qtgui.qdocconf provides the standard header of the Qt GUI Documentation.

<FORMAT>.quotinginformation

A boolean value which, when true, generates references to quoted content (for example, \quotefromfile and \snippet commands) instead of including the content directly.

Used currently for the WebXML output format.

WebXML.quotinginformation = true

HTML.style

The HTML.style variable defines the style for the generated HTML documentation.

The variable's value is given as raw HTML enclosed by quotation marks. Note that if the value spans several lines, each line needs to be enclosed by quotation marks.

HTML.style = "h3.fn,span.fn" \
             "{ margin-left: 1cm; text-indent: -1cm; }\n" \
             "a:link { color: #004faf; text-decoration: none }\n" \
             "a:visited" \
             "{ color: #672967; text-decoration: none }\n" \
             "td.postheader { font-family: sans-serif }\n" \
             "tr.address { font-family: sans-serif }\n" \
             "body { background: #ffffff; color: black; }"

HTML.stylesheets

The HTML.stylesheets variable defines a list of stylesheets to use for the generated HTML documentation.

Using separate stylesheets for the documentation makes it easier to customize and experiment with the style used once the contents has been generated. Typically, it is only necessary to define a single stylesheet for any set of documentation; for example:

HTML.stylesheets = path/to/classic.css

QDoc expects to find stylesheets in the directory containing the qtgui.qdocconf file, and it will copy those specified to the output directory alongside the HTML pages.

<FORMAT>.tocdepth

The <FORMAT>.tocdepth variable defines how many document sections are printed in the table of contents. Setting tocdepth to 0 disables the table of contents while leaving it undefined prints all document sections.

Currently only has an effect for the HTML format:

HTML.tocdepth = 3
