Overview

This code example shows how to access display information from the system. For example to get color depth and display brightness of the device. Code example use QSystemDisplayInfo API from QtMobility APIs.

This snippet requires ReadDeviceData capabilities. Self-signing is not possible, a Developer certificate is needed to sign application for testing.

Prerequisite


Headers required

#include <qsysteminfo.h>

.pro file

Modify your .pro file as follows.

QT += core \
gui \
network
INCLUDEPATH += d:/qtmobility/src/systeminfo
INCLUDEPATH += D:/QtMobility/src/global
 
CONFIG += mobility
MOBILITY = systeminfo
symbian:TARGET.CAPABILITY = ReadDeviceData


Header file

/* GetDisplayInfo.h */
 
#ifndef GETDISPLAYINFO_H
#define GETDISPLAYINFO_H
 
#include <QtGui/QMainWindow>
#include <qsysteminfo.h>
 
QTM_USE_NAMESPACE;
 
class QListWidget;
class QScrollArea;
 
class GetDisplayInfo : public QMainWindow
{
Q_OBJECT
 
public:
GetDisplayInfo(QWidget *parent = 0);
~GetDisplayInfo();
 
private:
void setWidgetGeometry(QSize* screenSize);
void getDisplayInformation();
 
private:
QSystemDisplayInfo* sysInfo;
QListWidget *listWidget;
QScrollArea *scrollArea;
};
 
#endif // GETDISPLAYINFO_H

Source file

/* GetDisplayInfo.cpp */
 
#include "GetDisplayInfo.h"
#include <QListWidget>
#include <QScrollArea>
 
GetDisplayInfo::GetDisplayInfo(QWidget *parent)
: QMainWindow(parent)
{
setWindowTitle("Get display information");
 
/*The sysInfo becomes a child of the GetDisplayInfo, and will be destroyed when the GetDisplayInfo is deleted */
sysInfo = new QSystemDisplayInfo(this);
 
/* To show items in list view */
listWidget = new QListWidget();
listWidget->setObjectName(QString::fromUtf8("listWidget"));
 
/* To make UI scrollable */
scrollArea = new QScrollArea();
setWidgetGeometry(&(size()));
 
/* scrollArea takes ownership of the listWidget, so no need to delete it */
scrollArea->setWidget(listWidget);
scrollArea->setAlignment(Qt::AlignLeft);
scrollArea->setWidgetResizable(true);
 
/* QMainWindow takes ownership of the scrollArea, so no need to delete it */
setCentralWidget(scrollArea);
getDisplayInformation();
 
}
 
GetDisplayInfo::~GetDisplayInfo()
{
}
 
void GetDisplayInfo::setWidgetGeometry(QSize* screenSize)
{
resize(*screenSize);
QRect rect(0,0,screenSize->width(), screenSize->height());
listWidget->setGeometry(rect);
}
 
void GetDisplayInfo::getDisplayInformation()
{
QString infoStr;
 
/* get color depth of screen */
infoStr.setNum(sysInfo->colorDepth(0));
infoStr.prepend("Color depth: ");
listWidget->addItem(infoStr);
 
/* get display brightness of screen */
infoStr.clear();
infoStr.setNum(sysInfo->displayBrightness(0));
infoStr.prepend("Display brightness: ");
listWidget->addItem(infoStr);
}
