An introduction to the QtWebKit module.
To import the module use, for example, the following statement:
from PyQt4 import QtWebKit
QtWebKit provides a Web browser engine that makes it easy to embed content from the World Wide Web into your Qt application. At the same time Web content can be enhanced with native controls.
In addition to providing pure rendering features, HTML documents can be made fully editable to the user through the use of the contenteditable attribute on HTML elements.
QtWebKit is based on the Open Source WebKit engine. More information about WebKit itself can be found on the WebKit Open Source Project Web site.
The QtWebKit module is part of the Qt Desktop Edition, and the Qt Open Source Edition.
The easiest way to render content is through the QWebView class. As a widget it can be embedded into your forms or a graphics view, and it provides convenience functions for downloading and rendering web sites.
QWebView *view = new QWebView(parent); view->load(QUrl("http://www.trolltech.com/")); view->show();
QWebView acts as a view onto Web pages, each of which is represented by an instance of the QWebPage class. QWebPage provides access to the document structure in a page, describing features such as frames, the navigation history, and the undo/redo stack for editable content.
Individual browser features, defaults and other settings can be configured through the QWebSettings class. It is possible to provide defaults for all QWebPage instances through the default settings. Individual attributes can be overidden by the page specific settings object.
