MainWindow displays a timetrackerwidget, that is a ktabwidget containing one or more taskviews. A taskview is associated with a timetrackerstorage object that holds a calendar with todos and events. A taskview is a QTreeWidget that holds tasks. A task has a summary (name), a priority and times: the time, total time, session time and total session time. Over the QTreeWidget, a task can have subtasks. The total time is defined as the task's and all its subtasks' times. Roadmap to the classes See http://api.kde.org/4.x-api/kdepim-apidocs/ktimetracker/html/ main -> mainwindow ------------------------ -> task \ / -> timetrackerwidget -(contains n>=0)-> taskview - / \ ktimetracker_plugin -> ktimetrackerpart --- -> timetrackerstorage KTimeTrackerSettings ktimetracker's program main.cpp creates mainwindow, this creates a timetrackerpart this calls timetrackerwidget, this calls taskview, this contains a timetrackerstorage. karmstorage stores and loads the events and tasks. taskview displays them. timetrackerwidget displays one or more taskviews in tabs, plus the searchWidget. timetrackerpart can be integrated into a mainwindow or a kontact plugin. mainwindow adds the menu. MainWindow is the outermost layer and initializes the menus and actions, sets up the status bar, and handles many of the signal-to-slot connections. It holds a pointer to the timetrackerwidget and Preferences objects and implements the ktimetracker DBUS interface. TaskView does most of the work in the application. This QListWidget subclass sets up the columns in the list, the idle detection timer, the auto save timer, and the desktop tracker. It starts and stops timers, handles importing and exporting and displays the edit task dialog in response to user action. TaskView holds a private pointer to Preferences and a timetrackerstorage object. A Task is a QListViewItem subclass stores state such as the timer totals, if a timer is currently running for the task. It also defines the list view sort order and can return a pointer to a KCal::Todo object that holds the same information. Preferences is a singleton that stores configuration options. It raises signals when options change (for example, the location where the ktimetracker data is stored) so the application can react and adjust. timetrackerstorage is a singleton that creates an interface for storing ktimetracker data. Currently, it uses KDE Resource framework and stores data in the iCalendar format. KTimeTrackerSettings stores ktimetracker's configuration, settings, preferences or however you call it. It is declared in the file ktimetracker.h. how configuration is programmed Configuration is also called preferences. The following files are involved: cfgbehavior.ui ui_cfgbehavior.h - automatically created from cfgbehavior.ui preferences.h - saves which tasks will be shown expanded and which ones collapsed preferences.cpp - saves which tasks will be shown expanded and which ones collapsed preferences.moc - automatically created from preferences.h ktimetrackerconfigdialog.cpp ktimetracker.kcfgc ktimetracker.kcfg ktimetracker.h - declaring the class KTimeTrackerSettings. This file is automatically generated from ktimetracker.kcfg. ktimetracker.cpp - implementing the class KTimeTrackerSettings. This file is automatically generated from ktimetracker.kcfg. ktimetrackerconfigdialog.cpp ktimetrackerconfigdialog.h ktimetracker in the web If you need to update screenshots you might have to do it on the following pages: http://userbase.kde.org/KTimeTracker https://community.kde.org/Ktimetracker http://kde.org/applications/utilities/ktimetracker/ - deleted as of 2019-05-26 bugs Find ktimetracker's open bugs (without NEEDINFO bugs) with this query find all ktimetracker's bugs with this query coding style It is more important that you contribute than that you contribute with the right coding style. That having said, I prefer if you use code that is consistent with QtCreator's defaults. Opening and closing brackets and parentheses should be on the same row or column. development direction There should not be any "New" and "Close". ktimetracker should contain exactly one taskview. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=182317 and https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=265085 The help menu The help menu is stupidly overloaded and I cannot do anything about it because it is somewhere hidden in the library code. Would love to simplify it. "Help" does not need subitems - you want help. Polls Do you want to be able to start several ktimetracker instances? recent activity Ktimetracker history export and editing broken duplicate 238164 setting changes do not have immediate effect Store value in edit history dialog even if user does not change cell afterwards., fix, backport When saving to ical file, ktimetracker adds timezone info to DTSTART but not to DTEND, fix, backport when I start ktimetracker for the first time, a file dialog appears, fix, backport tray icons ktimetracker always have tray icon(s) even if configured to disable them, fix, backport System tray icon displayed 2 times, fix, backport Maintainer knowledge If you want to hand over maintainership, here is some info: to be allowed to change ktimetracker options in bugzilla, like adding a new version to bugzilla: open a request under https://bugs.kde.org/enter_sysadmin_request.cgi and ask to be added to the editcomponents group change ktimetracker options (e.g. add a version) under https://bugs.kde.org/editproducts.cgi?action=edit&product=ktimetracker Retrieved from "https://community.kde.org/index.php?title=KTimeTracker&oldid=84593" Content is available under Creative Commons License SA 4.0 unless otherwise noted.
