Receiving signals into a QThread without calling exec()
Is it possible to have a QThread without a Qt event loop and somehow manually poke the Qt event delivery mechanism to deliver any events sent to the thread?
E.g. a run method that looks something like this:
I'm wondering whether it's possible to have a worker thread which can listen for signals but without handing over control to exec().
(For some background, this is in the context of an audio callback thread where I don't have control over when I get called.)
I guess you could try that. You could try what happens if you run processEvents() regulary in your thread. That is, in its basics, what an eventloop does too. I have not tried this myself, and I would not recommend it in general.
