Signals and slots in xml coding



  • I have been playing with Qt for some months now. I am teaching myself through coding and recreating code in various versions; QML, XML, C++, Gui.

    This approach is giving me a lot of insight.
    But I am stuck, The code below is mainly to do it all in xml. But I can't get my signals and slots to work. Everything looks fine to me and I am thinking I have missed something.

    </slots>
    

    </ui>
    @

    To give more info the code runs just nothing when buttons are pressed. The errors say;

    QObject::connect: No such slot QLabel::button1pressed() in ./ui_entry1.h:69
    QObject::connect: (sender name: 'pushButton')
    QObject::connect: (receiver name: 'label')
    QObject::connect: No such slot enTry1::button2pressed() in ./ui_entry1.h:70
    QObject::connect: (sender name: 'pushButton_2')
    QObject::connect: (receiver name: 'enTry1')

    Any suggestions....??



  • Hi,

    I don't know how did you create the connection, but as you can see in the documentation of QLabel, there is no slot called button1pressed() in QLabel.

    http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5.1/qtwidgets/qlabel.html

    enTry1 is object name of your custom class MainWindow. You should define a slot called button2pressed() in the class if you want to make this connection works.
