      Description

      Hi,
      There's an error that sliped into the documentation of the QML WebSocket Type of the newly implemented receiveBinaryMessage() signal.

      The documentation states that the signal's argument is a QString, when in fact it's an ArrayBuffer - as described for the sendBinaryMessage() method.

      The error can be found in the patch that implements these functionalities :
      https://github.com/qt/qtwebsockets/commit/9b804c270d11d34d37c08a5145dba083a6b0c1a7#diff-972828f3f4fa4303180be85da2f35d7aR94

      Documentation page :
      http://doc-snapshots.qt.io/qt5-5.8/qml-qtwebsockets-websocket.html#sendBinaryMessage-method

      This affects the documentation and the helpers in QtCreator - which expect a string.

      PS: it would certainly be interesting to give some example(s) of how to handle this binary data in QML. I myself haven't yet figured out how to use an image received that way.
