Detailed Description

The QCollatorSortKey class is always created by QCollator::sortKey() and is used for fast strings collation, for example when collating many strings.

Member Function Documentation

QCollatorSortKey::QCollatorSortKey(const QCollatorSortKey &other)

Constructs a copy of the other collator key.

QCollatorSortKey &QCollatorSortKey::operator=(QCollatorSortKey &&other)

Move-assigns other to this collator key.

QCollatorSortKey &QCollatorSortKey::operator=(const QCollatorSortKey &other)

Assigns other to this collator key.

QCollatorSortKey::~QCollatorSortKey()

Destroys the collator key.

int QCollatorSortKey::compare(const QCollatorSortKey &otherKey) const

Compares this key to otherKey, which must have been created by the same QCollator's sortKey() as this key. The comparison is performed in accordance with that QCollator's sort order.

Returns a negative value if this key sorts before otherKey, 0 if the two keys are equal or a positive value if this key sorts after otherKey.

See also operator<().

void QCollatorSortKey::swap(QCollatorSortKey &other)

Swaps this collator key with other.

Related Non-Members

bool operator<(const QCollatorSortKey &lhs, const QCollatorSortKey &rhs)

Both keys must have been created by the same QCollator's sortKey(). Returns true if lhs should be sorted before rhs, according to the QCollator that created them; otherwise returns false.
