[SOLVED] Console application with thread: It is not closed
I'm coding a console application that runs a QThread for connections and at same time, waits for user inputs by keyboard.
My problem is that then of read what user's write, I send a signal to close the application and nothing happens. Is the first console appliation using Qt and I'm not sure if I'm following what Qt waits. Here is the code:
@int main(int argc, char *argv)
QCoreApplication app(argc, argv);
QObject::connect(&cmd, SIGNAL(quitApp()), &app, SLOT(quit())); cmd.exec(); return app.exec();
CommandLineApp.h (Server is a QTcpServer that has a QThread inside):
using namespace std;
class CommandLineApp : public QObject
signals: void quitApp(); public: CommandLineApp(QObject *parent = 0); void exec(); private: Server server;
@CommandLineApp::CommandLineApp(QObject *parent) : QObject(parent)
QTextStream cout(stdout); QTextStream cin(stdin); cout<<"Set option (help for Help, quit for Quit): "; cout.flush(); cin>>option; server.close(); emit quitApp();
You emit quitApp() before QCoreApplication enters it's event loop: that is, before signals and slots (and the whole Qt Meta Ojbect System) is able to work.
Arg! Thanks a lot!!
Sometimes we are looking for complex problems and the problem is basic!
Shoddy solution: add a timer with singleShot! :)
You are welcome.
Solution good enough if it works :) Qt is more oriented towards GUI stuff (obviously), command line apps are sometimes a bit tricky.
can be simply replaced with
As the event loop make non-sense in such case.
Thanks 1+1=2, it also works I've decided to to it to get more clear code.
Mark the topic as solved!! :)
