    \class QDesktopServices
    \brief The QDesktopServices class provides methods for accessing common desktop services.
    \since 4.2
    \ingroup desktop

    Many desktop environments provide services that can be used by applications to
    perform common tasks, such as opening a web page, in a way that is both consistent
    and takes into account the user's application preferences.

    This class contains functions that provide simple interfaces to these services
    that indicate whether they succeeded or failed.

    The openUrl() function is used to open files located at arbitrary URLs in external
    applications. For URLs that correspond to resources on the local filing system
    (where the URL scheme is "file"), a suitable application will be used to open the
    file; otherwise, a web browser will be used to fetch and display the file.

    The user's desktop settings control whether certain executable file types are
    opened for browsing, or if they are executed instead. Some desktop environments
    are configured to prevent users from executing files obtained from non-local URLs,
    or to ask the user's permission before doing so.

    \section1 URL Handlers

    The behavior of the openUrl() function can be customized for individual URL
    schemes to allow applications to override the default handling behavior for
    certain types of URLs.

    The dispatch mechanism allows only one custom handler to be used for each URL
    scheme; this is set using the setUrlHandler() function. Each handler is
    implemented as a slot which accepts only a single QUrl argument.

    The existing handlers for each scheme can be removed with the
    unsetUrlHandler() function. This returns the handling behavior for the given
    scheme to the default behavior.

    This system makes it easy to implement a help system, for example. Help could be
    provided in labels and text browsers using \gui{help://myapplication/mytopic}
    URLs, and by registering a handler it becomes possible to display the help text
    inside the application:

    class MyHelpHandler : public QObject
    public slots:
        void showHelp(const QUrl &url);

    QDesktopServices::setUrlHandler("help", helpInstance, "showHelp");

    If inside the handler you decide that you can't open the requested
    URL, you can just call QDesktopServices::openUrl() again with the
    same argument, and it will try to open the URL using the
    appropriate mechanism for the user's desktop environment.

    \sa QSystemTrayIcon, QProcess

    Opens the given \a url in the appropriate web browser for the user's desktop
    environment, and returns true if successful; otherwise returns false.

    If the URL is a reference to a local file (i.e. the URL scheme is "file") then
    it will be opened with a suitable application instead of a web browser.

    If a \c mailto URL is specified, the user's e-mail client will be used to open a
    composer window containing the options specified in the URL, similar to the way
    \c mailto links are handled by a web browser.

    For example, the following URL contains a recipient (\c{user@foo.com}), a
    subject (\c{Test}), and a message body (\c{Just a test}):

    mailto:user@foo.com?subject=Test&body=Just a test

    \warning Although many e-mail clients can send attachments and are
    Unicode-aware, the user may have configured their client without these features.
    Also, certain e-mail clients (e.g., Lotus Notes) have problems with long URLs.

    \sa setUrlHandler()
00188 bool QDesktopServices::openUrl(const QUrl &url)
    QOpenUrlHandlerRegistry *registry = handlerRegistry();
    QMutexLocker locker(&registry->mutex);
    static bool insideOpenUrlHandler = false;

    if (!insideOpenUrlHandler) {
        QOpenUrlHandlerRegistry::HandlerHash::ConstIterator handler = registry->handlers.constFind(url.scheme());
        if (handler != registry->handlers.constEnd()) {
            insideOpenUrlHandler = true;
            bool result = QMetaObject::invokeMethod(handler->receiver, handler->name, Qt::DirectConnection, Q_ARG(QUrl, url));
            insideOpenUrlHandler = false;
            return result; // ### support bool slot return type

    bool result;
    if (url.scheme() == QLatin1String("file"))
        result = openDocument(url);
        result = launchWebBrowser(url);

    return result;

    Sets the handler for the given \a scheme to be the handler \a method provided by
    the \a receiver object.

    This function provides a way to customize the behavior of openUrl(). If openUrl()
    is called with a URL with the specified \a scheme then the given \a method on the
    \a receiver object is called instead of QDesktopServices launching an external

    The provided method must be implemented as a slot that only accepts a single QUrl

    If setUrlHandler() is used to set a new handler for a scheme which already
    has a handler, the existing handler is simply replaced with the new one.
    Since QDesktopServices does not take ownership of handlers, no objects are
    deleted when a handler is replaced.

    Note that the handler will always be called from within the same thread that
    calls QDesktopServices::openUrl().

    \sa openUrl()
00235 void QDesktopServices::setUrlHandler(const QString &scheme, QObject *receiver, const char *method)
    QOpenUrlHandlerRegistry *registry = handlerRegistry();
    QMutexLocker locker(&registry->mutex);
    if (!receiver) {
    QOpenUrlHandlerRegistry::Handler h;
    h.receiver = receiver;
    h.name = method;
    registry->handlers.insert(scheme, h);
    QObject::connect(receiver, SIGNAL(destroyed(QObject*)),
                     registry, SLOT(handlerDestroyed(QObject*)));

    Removes a previously set url handler for the specified \a scheme.
00254 void QDesktopServices::unsetUrlHandler(const QString &scheme)
    setUrlHandler(scheme, 0, 0);
