QGeoServiceProvider provider name ?

Hi all,


I want to do reverse geocoding in my application, I write this code :


QGeoSearchManager *searchManager = 0;
QGeoServiceProvider serviceProvider("provider name");

if (serviceProvider.error() == QGeoServiceProvider::NoError) 
       searchManager = serviceProvider.searchManager();
       qDebug() << "error" << serviceProvider.errorString();

 I can't found if Blackberry give a provider for this.


If anyone get an idea.


Thanks !

Re: QGeoServiceProvider provider name ?

You can find out the provider names by calling  the static method QGeoServiceProvider::availableServiceProviders(). Under BB10 there is currently only one so you could simply instantiate the first and only one in the list:


QStringList serviceProviders = QtMobilitySubset::QGeoServiceProvider::availableServiceProviders();
if ( serviceProviders.size() ) {

// here just use the first one in the list
serviceProvider = new QtMobilitySubset::QGeoServiceProvider( serviceProviders.at(0) );






The name is BbGeoServices, in case you want to use it explicitly. it is documented here: https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/qtmobilitysubset__qgeoserviceprovider.html#qgeos...
