Refactoring of Signals
I found a problem regarding the refactoring of signals. When I rightclick on the definition of a signal, and choose "find usages" qtcreator doesn't show me the connects of that signal.
Here's an example
I right-click on "pointAdded()" and chose "find Usages"
The following lines of code are being found:
emit pointAdded(); (in glwidget.cpp)
void pointAdded(); (in glwidget.h)
but this line is NOT found:
connect (glWidget, SIGNAL pointAdded, this, SLOT updatePushButtons; (in file mainwindow.cpp)
( I intentionally removed some parentheses because the forum software was doing strange things)
If I do this for a slot on the other hand, all lines of code are being found. (including connects in other files)
Also, the refactoring/renaming function doesn't work for the signal, because in the lines beginning with connect... the name of the signal isn't changed. It works fine for slots though.
I use qtcreator 3.2.1, (and also 2.8.1).
Is this a bug? Is there maybe a workaround other than using the find function for signals?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
I don't know it can be considered as usage in the sense that it's not "active". What happens if you use the new connection style ?
thank you for the tip, it works! With the new connection style the occurrence of the signal in the connect order is found when using the "find usages" option.
I like the new connection style :)
You're very welcome,
Since you have it working correctly now, please update the thread title prepending [solved].
