Display Images in Qt-supported Formats

This example displays images which are in any format supported by Qt. Combining this with the Qt ImageIO Extension adds PNG image support to your browser. It demonstrates the use of the QNPInstance::streamAsFile() function.

To build the example, you must first build the Qt Image IO Extension library and of course the Qt Netscape Plugin Extension library. Then type make in extensions/nsplugin/examples/qtimage/ and copy the resulting qtimage.so or npqtimage.dll to the Plugins directory of your WWW browser.

This plugin displays a PNG format image.

New image format can be supported by adding new image I/O handlers to the Qt library (see QImage::defineIOHandler), thus providing the functionality in both applications and WWW plugins from the same code.

This plugin supports transparency and scaling of the image, just like GIFs in most WWW browsers.
