implicit_location(model)

Return the implicit storage location for a model.

Parameter:model – is the model.
Returns:None as devices typically have explicit locations.

A storage location is converted to a QIODevice instance. This must be reimplemented by a sub-class.

read(model, location)

Returns:

the read model. This may be the original model populated from the filesystem location, or it may be a different model (of an appropriate type) created from the filesystem location. If None is returned then it is assumed that the read was abandoned and the user informed appropriately.
