QScript and visibility of QObjects

  • I'm trying to understand why the following class give me this behavior: @ class ToolFactory : public QObject
    Q_INVOKABLE Tool* newTool_broken(QString name);
    Q_INVOKABLE void newTool_working(QString name)
    Tool* t = newTool_broken(name);
    }@ Now from the QScript side,
    if I call Factory.newTool_broken("myName"), it fails saying @Factory.newTool_broken("myName");

    TypeError: cannot call newTool_broken(): unknown return type `Tool*' (register the type with qScriptRegisterMetaType())@ but if I call Factory.newTool_working("myName"), I can then use @Factory.myName
    Tool(0xa042378, name = "myName") @

    As stated in the error did you made Tool known to the Meta Object system using qScriptRegisterMetaType ?

  • No, and I don't want to do that because I can use my Tool* object using the "trick" in newTool_working() so the Meta Object seem to be aware of what a Tool* is.
