    Did you see already "this example?":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/doc/qt-4.8/widgets-digitalclock.html It is a good starter.

  • "This wiki page":http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/signalsandslots.html about signals and slots is a good start.

  • @koahnig thnx 4 dat example, i will try dat.
    @KA51O i have read dat.

  • shoyeb, why dont you create one timer, and when its timeOut() occurs, emit your signal.

    Remember that you need to connect the timer's timeOut() to its event handler where you can emit that signal.

  • @
    class Sleeper : public QThread
    static void usleep(unsigned long usecs){QThread::usleep(usecs);}
    static void msleep(unsigned long msecs){QThread::msleep(msecs);}
    static void sleep(unsigned long secs){QThread::sleep(secs);}

    class SleeperThread : public QThread
    static void msleep(unsigned long msecs)

    use before connect function or signal emit Sleeper::sleep(10);

    May this will help for giving specific delay for emiting signal... :)

    [Edit: Be sure and wrap code in @ tags. Thanks! -mlong]
