Detailed Description

A VCardManager can be used to fetch an entities VCard as well as for setting one's own VCard.

You need only one VCardManager per Client/ClientBase.

Fetching a VCard

Create a VCardManager and have a VCardHandler ready. Then simply call fetchVCard() and wait for the result.

class MyClass : public VCardHandler
m_myClass = new MyClass();
m_vcardManager = new VCardManager( m_client );
void fetchVCard( const JID& jid )
m_vcardManager->fetchVCard( jid, this );
virtual void handleVCard( const JID& jid, const VCard* vcard );
printf( "received vcard\n" );
virtual void handleVCardResult( VCardContext context, const JID& jid,
printf( "vcard operation result received\n" );
VCardManager* m_vcardManager;
void fetchVCard(const JID &jid, VCardHandler *vch)
VCardManager(ClientBase *parent)

Storing one's own VCard

Some, if not many, servers do not implement support for all the fields specified in XEP-0054. Therefore it is possible that you cannot retrieve fields you stored previously.

Similar to the above, you need a VCardManager and a VCardHandler. Then construct your VCard and call storeVCard().

void storeMyVCard()
VCard* v = new VCard();
v->setFormattedname( "Me" );
v->setNickname( "Myself" );
m_vcardManager->storeVCard( v, this );

This implementation supports more than one address, address label, email address and telephone number.

Currently, this implementation lacks support for the following fields: AGENT, CATEGORIES, SOUND, KEY

When cleaning up, delete your VCardManager instance before deleting the Client/ClientBase instance.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ VCardManager()

VCardManager ( ClientBase parent)


parentThe ClientBase object to use for communication.

◆ ~VCardManager()

~VCardManager ( )

Virtual destructor.

Member Function Documentation

◆ cancelVCardOperations()

void cancelVCardOperations ( VCardHandler vch)

Use this function, e.g. from your VCardHandler-derived class's dtor, to cancel any outstanding operations (fetchVCard(), storeVCard()). Calling this function even if no operations are pending is just fine.

vchThe VCardHandler to remove from any queues.

Definition at line 62 of file vcardmanager.cpp.

◆ fetchVCard()

void fetchVCard ( const JID jid,
VCardHandler vch 

Use this function to fetch the VCard of a remote entity or yourself. The result will be announced by calling handleVCard() the VCardHandler.

jidThe entity's JID. Should be a bare JID unless you want to fetch the VCard of, e.g., a MUC item.
vchThe VCardHandler that will receive the result of the VCard fetch.

Definition at line 45 of file vcardmanager.cpp.

◆ handleIq()

virtual bool handleIq ( const IQ iq)

Reimplement this function if you want to be notified about incoming IQs.

iqThe complete IQ stanza.
Indicates whether a request of type 'get' or 'set' has been handled. This includes the obligatory 'result' answer. If you return false, an 'error' will be sent back.

Implements IqHandler.

Definition at line 142 of file vcardmanager.h.

◆ handleIqID()

void handleIqID ( const IQ iq,
int  context 

Reimplement this function if you want to be notified about incoming IQs with a specific value of the id attribute. You have to enable tracking of those IDs using Client::trackID(). This is usually useful for IDs that generate a empty positive reply, i.e. <iq type='result' id='reg'/> where a namespace filter wouldn't work.

iqThe complete IQ stanza.
contextA value to restore context, stored with ClientBase::trackID().
Only IQ stanzas of type 'result' or 'error' can arrive here.

Implements IqHandler.

Definition at line 88 of file vcardmanager.cpp.

◆ storeVCard()

void storeVCard ( VCard vcard,
VCardHandler vch 

Use this function to store or update your own VCard on the server. Remember to always send a full VCard, not a delta of changes. If you, for any reason, pass a foreign VCard to this function, your own will be overwritten.

vcardYour VCard to store.
vchThe VCardHandler that will receive the result of the VCard store.
