PyQt5 Class Properties Go Missing When Using QThreadPool

  • I'm getting the strangest errors with PyQt5. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem. If I'm running running threads using the QThreadPool and QRunnable objects, sometimes my Python classes lose their properties. Here's some example code:
    from PyQt5.QtCore import *

    class RunnableSignals(QObject):
    finished = pyqtSignal(dict)

    def init(self):
    super(RunnableSignals, self).init()

    class Runnable(QRunnable):
    def init(self, inputData):
    super(Runnable, self).init()

    self._inputData = inputData
    self.abort = False
    self.signals = RunnableSignals()

    def aborted(self):
    return self.abort

    def run(self):
    if self.aborted():

    Do stuff. Check if aborted along the way


    In a different class in the main thread:
    def update(self):
    self.runnable = Runnable(someVariable)

    If I run two at a time, the first one is just fine, but the second one will raise an error. AttributeError: 'Runnable' object has no attribute 'abort'. It just makes no sense, I set self.abort = False in the init method.
    Also, I don't know if this is worth mentioning, but I'm using Python.NET instead of C Python. Don't know if that has something to do with it.
