EXTRACTATTR(1) General Commands Manual EXTRACTATTR(1)

NAME

extractattr - extract element attributes from UI and XML GUI files

SYNOPSIS

extractattr --attr=name [ --attr=name ... ] [ --context=name ] file ...
extractattr --help

DESCRIPTION

extractattr finds all of the given element attributes within the given files. It then writes the corresponding i18n() calls to standard output (usually redirected to rc.cpp) so that xgettext can parse them. Only the attributes specified by --attr will be extracted.
Both Qt designer (.ui) files and XML GUI (.rc) files are understood.
This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.

OPTIONS

--attr=name
Specifies an attribute to be extracted. This option may be used multiple times.
 
The name argument must be of the form Element,attribute or Element,attribute,context.
 
The context is optional, and is used in constructing the i18n() calls. If specified it will override the default context set by --context.
--context=name
Give all i18n() calls the given context: i18n("name", ...).
--help
Display a summary of options.

EXAMPLE

extractattr --attr=Title,data --attr=Description,data,Stencils file.ui
