My app hangs when i try custom slots



  • With that really simple code the app hangs when i click the button, but the examples included in QT works fine, and i don't see differences. I've tryed using different widgets with and without layouts, tryed deriving from QFrame, using "QObject::connect" and "connect" alone, with and without Q_OBJECT macro, but still the same. The only way it works is with an empty slot function. I've tryed with normal SIGNALS and SLOTS and it works. I think it must be a really stupid thing, but i can't see it.

    This is the error when windows forces the exit of the program:
    "Starting C:\Users\Administador\untitled1-build-desktop-Qt_4_8_1_for_Desktop_-MinGW__Qt_SDK__Debug\debug\untitled1.exe...
    The program has unexpectedly finished.

    widget.h
    @#ifndef WIDGET_H
    #define WIDGET_H

    #include <QWidget>
    #include <QPushButton>

    class Widget : public QWidget
    {
    Q_OBJECT
    public:
    explicit Widget(QWidget *parent = 0);
    private:
    QPushButton *button;

    signals:

    public slots:
    void slotprueba();

    };

    #endif // WIDGET_H
    @

    widget.cpp
    @#include "widget.h"

    Widget::Widget(QWidget *parent) :
    QWidget(parent)
    {
    QPushButton *button=new QPushButton("HOLA",this);
    QObject::connect(button,SIGNAL(clicked()),this,SLOT(slotprueba()));

    }
    void Widget::slotprueba(){
    button->setText("Pulsado");
    }
    @

    main.cpp
    @#include <QtGui/QApplication>
    #include "widget.h"

    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
    QApplication a(argc, argv);
    Widget wid;

    wid.show();
    
    
    return a.exec&#40;&#41;;
    

    }
    @



  • Try to write such slot:

    @void Widget::slotprueba(){
    if(button)
    button->setText("Pulsado");
    }@

    Looks like "button" isn't initialized.

    Edit: the problem is that you redefined your button in constructor. Just write:
    @button = new QPushButton("Text", this);@



  • The actual pointer to the button you are connecting the slot to is lost after the constructor, and the one in the header points to nothing.



  • Ok, solved. The problem was the second redefinition of the widget. Thanks to both.
