Missing PixelBufferData class

I guess PixelBufferData class has been removed or replaced in beta 3 sdk. Even the sample application QImageScratchPad exploring this class has been removed:



I had to display pretty large images on ImageViews in a listview, so I used this class to paint images. Has it been replaced by any other class ?


Is there any other way to display large images on ImageView apart from this?

It was replaced by bb::ImageData which is in bb/core

Re: Missing PixelBufferData class

Thanx kylefowler, it worked for me.


I just used method given in the documentation of ImageData & it worked fine:


bb::ImageData CascadeImagePainter::fromQImage(const QImage &qImage) {
bb::ImageData imageData(bb::PixelFormat::RGBA_Premultiplied, qImage.width(),

unsigned char *dstLine = imageData.pixels();
for (int y = 0; y < imageData.height(); y++) {
unsigned char * dst = dstLine;
for (int x = 0; x < imageData.width(); x++) {
QRgb srcPixel = qImage.pixel(x, y);
*dst++ = qRed(srcPixel);
*dst++ = qGreen(srcPixel);
*dst++ = qBlue(srcPixel);
*dst++ = qAlpha(srcPixel);
dstLine += imageData.bytesPerLine();

return imageData;


& I passed returned object to set Image on Cascade ImageView like this:
