Toggle an LED from within Qt
PowersOf12 last edited by
I have Qt up and running on my custom AT91SAM9G45 hardware using Linux 2.6.30 kernel and all of the Demos work nicely with my touchscreen and 480x272 LCD. So, I figured that I am a good point so far. Now, I have only messed with Qt for two days and I have a very simple question I hope.
How, do I toggle an LED. (I have my Qt books coming from Amazon next week so sorry of this was a stupid question). I am assuming that Qt can access all of the hardware that Linux can access?
My LED driver(s) location:
My LED variable:
brightness (can be zero or one)
From the console I can:
echo "1" > brightness
echo "0" > brightness

I haven't personally done anything with Qt in a custom embedded environment like this, so it's entirely possible that I'm wrong about this, but you will probably be able to use normal file i/o (QFile and friends) to write to the device file which "brightness" is a symlink to.
