Hi toems,

seems that html is not retrieved from google.com. Maybe have you a proxy ? This is the only thing I could thinking about, because I tried now and it works fine. Proxy setting are not implemented.
By the way did you mean the loop in rx_data.indexIn(*html, pos) not rx_start ? You can try to comment lines from 283 to 286. Let me know.

I also have the same problem with the MSI Windows version of Google Image Dowloader. I downloaded and started it but it doesn't find any image when I click on the search button.
I have no proxy configured in my home pc.

Hi,
Just a slighty error found in mainwindow.h

int n_images_downloaded,; The , is wrong :)

But the main problem is i have no
QtWebKitd lib and so no QtWebKitd_s.a

I hope that we get the QtWebKitd later we have now a beta2 from Qt4.5
But is it possible to build without the QtWebKitd ?

I have just corrected the mistake :)

About your problem with webkit, I dont know on develop with mac, but I installed qt development kit in my mac ( osx 10.4.11 ) in my office, compiled and it runs fine, even if the font is too small.

Hope if you install the whole sdk, it will works fine.

bye

I did a little code review for you and I have some suggestions, if you like:
- use QNetworkAccessManager instead of QHttp
- to parse the incoming page: you could use webkit with the 'selection' api, or use webkit with javascript code injection (see ariya hidayat's examples about this)

All in all: GREAT APP! I love it ;-)

thanks a lot

I didn't remember why I used QHttp, but I'll dig into QNetworkAccessManager.
thanks again

How do you use this application? Do I compile it or what?

In windows you have to unzip into a folder and run.
For now, with linux, you have to compile (qmake & make).... I m learning how to build a .deb package.

i have two questions :
1) if it is possible to have more pages in the results ? (i see you can choose the number in results before the research)

2) i can download images only with the button Download all, i am not able to use any right click menu options (nothing happens).

good features.
For now I have added a link under thumbnails for an instant download in the chosen directory. Maybe this is more comfortable and fast when we need to download many image instead of a contextual menu.
About the multiple pages I have to think a bit more, maybe could be a lil pain to do for the architecture I followed to write the app.
Soon I will upload the new version with the download feature

I'm glad to see this app is appreciated.
Thanks dglent for your interest and suggestions.
I think your advice could be made by adding a choice of which country the application should search, for example choose google.gr to make search.
I'll looking at that tonight and I let you know.

cheers
