      Description

      Using pdfviewer example program is is not possible to load any pdf, by using open file dialog.

      As  command line parameter you can use \Users\Gunnar\Downloads\bla.pdf, but  c:\Users\Gunnar\Downloads\bla.pdf will not work.

      This is due to this code:

      void QQuickPdfDocument::setSource(QUrl source)
      {
          if (m_source == source)
              return;
      
          m_source = source;
          m_maxPageWidthHeight = QSizeF();
          emit sourceChanged();
          if (source.scheme() == QLatin1String("qrc"))
              m_doc.load(QLatin1Char(':') + source.path());
          else
              m_doc.load(source.path());
      }
      

       

       I found QTBUG-6868 which was claosed a invalid.
      QUrl ( const QString & url ) / path() problem on windows for local files

      QUrl q("file:///c:/tmp/test.txt")
      qDebug() << q.path();

      will result as a path: /c:/tmp/test.txt

       This was commented:

      There's nothing wrong with the implementation. QUrl::path() returns the path component of the URI. No one ever promised that it was a valid file path on the filesystem.

      Note that to get a valid path, you can use toLocalFile() instead of path().

       

      But I think this behaviour really should be documented as also experienced Qt programmers like Shawn Rutledge do not know about this.

      It also seems to me not many people use the pdf module on windows as this bug was not detected earlier.
