Detailed Description

A QByteArrayView references a contiguous portion of raw bytes it does not own. It acts as an interface type to all kinds of byte-array-like data, without the need to construct a QByteArray first.

The byte array data may be represented as an array (or an array-compatible data-structure such as QByteArray, std::basic_string, etc.) of char, signed char, unsigned char or std::byte.

QByteArrayView is designed as an interface type; its main use-case is as a function parameter type. When QByteArrayViews are used as automatic variables or data members, care must be taken to ensure that the referenced data (for example, owned by a QByteArray) outlives the QByteArrayView on all code paths, lest the byte array view ends up referencing deleted data.

When used as an interface type, QByteArrayView allows a single function to accept a wide variety of byte-array-like data sources. One function accepting QByteArrayView thus replaces several function overloads (taking, for example, QByteArray, const char *, etc.) while at the same time enabling even more byte array data sources to be passed to the function.

QByteArrayView should be passed by value, not by reference-to-const:

    void myfun1(QByteArrayView bv);        // preferred
    void myfun2(const QByteArrayView &bv); // compiles and works, but slower

If you want to give your users maximum freedom in what type of data they can pass to your function, accompany the QByteArrayView overload with overloads for

  • char: this overload can delegate to the QByteArrayView version:
        void fun(QByteArrayView bv);
        void fun(char ch) { fun(QByteArrayView(&ch, 1)); }

    even though, for technical reasons, QByteArrayView cannot provide a char constructor by itself.

  • QByteArray: if you store an unmodified copy of the byte array and thus would like to take advantage of QByteArray's implicit sharing.

QByteArrayView can also be used as the return value of a function. If you call a function returning QByteArrayView, take extra care to not keep the QByteArrayView around longer than the function promises to keep the referenced data alive. If in doubt, obtain a strong reference to the data by calling toByteArray() to convert the QByteArrayView into a QByteArray.

Compatible Byte Types

QByteArrayView can be constructed on any container of bytes, where the byte type is one of:

  • char (both signed and unsigned)
  • std::byte

Member Function Documentation

qsizetype QByteArrayView::lastIndexOf(QByteArrayView bv, qsizetype from) const

qsizetype QByteArrayView::lastIndexOf(char ch, qsizetype from = -1) const

Returns the index position of either the start of the last occurrence of the sequence of bytes viewed by bv or the last occurrence of byte ch, respectively, in this byte array view, searching backward from index position from. If from is -1, the search starts at the last character; if from is -2, at the next to last character and so on. Returns -1 if no match is found.

Note: When searching for a 0-length bv, the match at the end of the data is excluded from the search by a negative from, even though -1 is normally thought of as searching from the end of the view: the match at the end is after the last character, so it is excluded. To include such a final empty match, either give a positive value for from or omit the from parameter entirely.

See also indexOf() and contains().

bool QByteArrayView::contains(QByteArrayView bv) const

bool QByteArrayView::contains(char ch) const

Returns true if this byte array view contains an occurrence of the sequence of bytes viewed by bv or character ch, respectively; otherwise returns false.

See also indexOf() and lastIndexOf().

qsizetype QByteArrayView::indexOf(QByteArrayView bv, qsizetype from = 0) const

qsizetype QByteArrayView::indexOf(char ch, qsizetype from = 0) const

Returns the index position of either the start of the first occurrence of the sequence of bytes viewed by bv or the first occurrence of byte ch, respectively, in this byte array view, searching forward from index position from.Returns -1 if no match is found.

If from is -1, the search starts at the last character; if it is -2, at the next to last character and so on.

See also lastIndexOf() and contains().

bool QByteArrayView::endsWith(QByteArrayView bv) const

bool QByteArrayView::endsWith(char ch) const

Returns true if this byte array view ends with byte array view bv or character ch, respectively; otherwise returns false.

See also startsWith().

bool QByteArrayView::startsWith(QByteArrayView bv) const

bool QByteArrayView::startsWith(char ch) const

Returns true if this byte array view starts with byte array view bv or character ch, respectively; otherwise returns false.

See also endsWith().

template <size_t Size> QByteArrayView::QByteArrayView(const char (&)[Size] data = Size)

Constructs a byte array view on the char array data. The view covers the array until the first '\0' is encountered, or Size, whichever comes first. If you need the full array, use fromArray() instead.

data must remain valid for the lifetime of this byte array view object.

Note: This constructor is only available for char array literals. The reasoning behind that is for compatibility with C-libraries which predefine "large-enough" arrays, but only use some of the preallocated space. To support this in an intuitive way in an implicit constructor overload, we need to stop at the first char(0). This is logical for a char array, but not for a std::byte array.

See also fromArray.

template <typename Container, if_compatible_container<Container>> QByteArrayView::QByteArrayView(const Container &c)

Constructs a byte array view on the array-like container c. The length and data are set via std::size(c) and std::data(c) respectively.

The container's data must remain valid for the lifetime of this byte array view object.

This constructor participates in overload resolution if c is any contiguous container container with elements of a compatible byte type.

See also Compatible Byte Types.

QByteArrayView::QByteArrayView(const QByteArray &byteArray)

Constructs a byte array view on byteArray.

byteArray.data() must remain valid for the lifetime of this byte array view object.

The byte array view will be null if and only if byteArray.isNull().

template <typename Byte> QByteArrayView::QByteArrayView(const Byte *data)

Constructs a byte array view on data. The length is determined by scanning for the first Byte(0).

data must remain valid for the lifetime of this byte array view object.

Passing nullptr as data is safe and results in a null byte array view.

This constructor only participates in overload resolution if data is not an array and if Byte is a compatible byte type.

See also Compatible Byte Types.

template <typename Byte, if_compatible_byte<Byte>> QByteArrayView::QByteArrayView(const Byte *first, const Byte *last)

Constructs a byte array view on first with length (last - first).

The range [first,last) must remain valid for the lifetime of this QByteArrayView.

Passing \nullptr as first is safe if last is nullptr, too, and results in a null byte array view.

The behavior is undefined if last precedes first, or first is nullptr and last is not.

This constructor only participates in overload resolution if Byte is a compatible byte type.

See also Compatible Byte Types.

template <typename Byte, if_compatible_byte<Byte>> QByteArrayView::QByteArrayView(const Byte *data, qsizetype len)

Constructs a byte array view on data with length len.

The range [data,len) must remain valid for the lifetime of this QByteArrayView.

Passing nullptr as data is safe if len is 0, too, and results in a null byte array view.

The behavior is undefined if len is negative or, when positive, if data is nullptr.

This constructor only participates in overload resolution if Byte is a compatible byte type.

See also Compatible Byte Types.

QByteArrayView::QByteArrayView(std::nullptr_t)

Constructs a null byte array view.

See also isNull().

QByteArrayView::QByteArrayView()

Constructs a null byte array view.

See also sliced(), first(), last(), chopped(), and truncate().

QByteArrayView QByteArrayView::chopped(qsizetype length) const

Returns a copy of this byte array view that omits its last length bytes. In other words, returns a byte array view of length size() - length starting at the beginning of this object.

Same as first(size() - length).

Note: The behavior is undefined when length < 0 or length > size().

See also first(), last(), sliced(), chop(), and truncate().

[since 6.2] int QByteArrayView::compare(QByteArrayView bv, Qt::CaseSensitivity cs = Qt::CaseSensitive) const

Note: The behavior is undefined when n < 0 or n > size().

See also last(), startsWith(), chopped(), chop(), and truncate().

[static] template <typename Byte, size_t Size> QByteArrayView QByteArrayView::fromArray(const Byte (&)[Size] data = Size)

Constructs a byte array view on the array literal data. The view covers the full array. That includes the trailing null-terminator of char array literals. If you don't want the null-terminator included in the view, you can chop() it off when you are certain it is at the end. Alternatively you can use the constructor overload taking a char array literal which will create a view up to, but not including, the first null-terminator in the data.

This function will work with any array literal of a compatible byte type.

See also Compatible Byte Types and QByteArrayView.

char QByteArrayView::front() const

Returns the first byte in the byte array view.

Returns a deep copy of this byte array view's data as a QByteArray.

The return value will be a null QByteArray if and only if this byte array view is null.

Warning: QByteArrayView can store data with more than 231 bytes while QByteArray cannot. Calling this function on a byte array view for which size() returns a value greater than INT_MAX / 2 constitutes undefined behavior.

QByteArrayView string("1234.56 Volt");
bool ok;
float a = str.toFloat(&ok);       // a == 0, ok == false
a = string.first(7).toFloat(&ok); // a == 1234.56, ok == true

Warning: The QByteArrayView content may only contain valid numerical characters which includes the plus/minus sign, the character e used in scientific notation, and the decimal point. Including the unit or additional characters leads to a conversion error.

Note: The conversion of the number is performed in the default C locale, regardless of the user's locale. Use QLocale to perform locale-aware conversions between numbers and strings.

This function ignores leading and trailing whitespace.

This function was introduced in Qt 6.3.

[since 6.3] int QByteArrayView::toInt(bool *ok = nullptr, int base = 10) const

Returns this byte array view converted to an int using base base, which is ten by default. Bases 0 and 2 through 36 are supported, using letters for digits beyond 9; A is ten, B is eleven and so on.
