Saving image with data in QVariant

JPEG image is converted into QVariant (with bb::cascades::Image) using the following code


//// m_image is bb::cascades::Image


m_image = bb::cascades::Image(imageData);


Converted to QVariant using QVariant::fromValue(m_image)


The image is displayed in qml.( I cannot save the file immedietly after downloading as there will be a lot of images and I have to select and save. When the image is displayed its QVariant..


I would like to save this image, which later to be used as Contact Photo..


I saw the sample code


//imageData1 is QByteArray

Image image = QImage::fromData(imageData1, "BMP");
QFile outFile("shared/photos/temp1.bmp"); //change to your file path
image.save(&outFile, "JPEG");


I tried to convert QVariant to QByteArray using QVariant.toByteArray(). but it didnt work.


Any help will be really appreciated..

Re: Saving image with data in QVariant

The issue is resolved by keeping around ImageData data object instead of Image object. Using the following code....


QByteArray imageArray = ImageConverter::encode("image/jpeg", myImageData);
                QImage image = QImage::fromData(imageArray, "JPEG");
                QString imgPath = "shared/photos/"+myImageName+".jpg";

                    QFile outFile(imgPath);

                    image.save(&outFile, "JPEG");
