Type Documentation

enum class QWebEngineGlobalSettings::SecureDnsMode

This enum sets the DNS-over-HTTPS mode used by the DnsMode structure:

QWebEngineGlobalSettings::SecureDnsMode::SystemOnly0This is the default. Use the system DNS host resolution.
QWebEngineGlobalSettings::SecureDnsMode::SecureWithFallback1Enable DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH). DoH servers have to be provided through serverTemplates in the DnsMode structure. If a host cannot be resolved via the provided servers, the system DNS host resolution is used.
QWebEngineGlobalSettings::SecureDnsMode::SecureOnly2Enable DNS-over-HTTPS and only allow hosts to be resolved this way. DoH servers have to be provided through serverTemplates in the DnsMode structure. If the DNS-over-HTTPS resolution fails, there is no fallback and the DNS host resolution fails completely.

Function Documentation

bool QWebEngineGlobalSettings::setDnsMode(QWebEngineGlobalSettings::DnsMode dnsMode)

Sets dnsMode for DNS-over-HTTPS host resolution.

This function returns false if the serverTemplates list in the DnsMode structure is empty or contains URI templates that cannot be parsed for SecureDnsMode::SecureOnly or SecureDnsMode::SecureWithFallback. Otherwise, it returns true meaning that the DNS mode change is triggered.
