QThread signal to QML



  • Hi all,
    i think this is a dumb question but i can't understand the solution:

    So i have my worker class cardWorker.h
    @
    ...
    class CardWorker : public QObject {
    Q_OBJECT

    public:
    CardWorker();
    ~CardWorker();

    public slots:
    void process();

    signals:
    void finished();
    void error(QString err);
    void myValueHasChanged(int value);

    private:
    // add your variables here
    };
    ...
    @

    The implementation: cardWorker.cpp
    @...
    // --- CONSTRUCTOR ---
    CardWorker::CardWorker() {
    // you could copy data from constructor arguments to internal variables here.
    }

    // --- DESTRUCTOR---
    CardWorker::~CardWorker() {
    // free resources
    }

    // --- PROCESS ---
    // Start processing data.
    void CardWorker::process() {
    // allocate resources using new here
    qDebug("Hello World!");
    emit myValueHasChanged(10);
    emit finished();
    }
    ...@

    In my main.cpp i have;
    @...
    QThread* thread = new QThread;
    CardWorker* worker = new CardWorker();
    worker->moveToThread(thread);

    QObject::connect(thread, SIGNAL(started()), worker, SLOT(process()));
    QObject::connect(worker, SIGNAL(finished()), thread, SLOT(quit()));
    QObject::connect(worker, SIGNAL(finished()), worker, SLOT(deleteLater()));
    QObject::connect(thread, SIGNAL(finished()), thread, SLOT(deleteLater()));
    thread->start();
    ...@

    Now the problem is: if i have my "main.qml" with a "Text" item how can i "see" the signal "myValueHasChanged()" emitted by the worker?
    I tryed this:

    main.qml
    @...
    Text{
    id:myText

    Connections{
    target: myCard
    onMyValueHasChanged{
    ...do things..
    }
    }
    }
    ...@

    and i added, just after the "thread ->start()" command:
    @
    view.rootContext()->setContextProperty("myCard", worker);
    @

    but this doesn't work. I know this is wrong but i can't understand how to solve this problem.
    All tips are appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!
    Claudio



  • Remove the quotes around the name of the target:

    @
    Connections {
    target: myCard
    onMyValueHasChanged { }
    }
    @



  • Ye sorry, the original code has no quotes, i've just re-written here a small part of the code because i have not the files here at the moment.

    I'll edit the first post.

    Thank you!

    }
    @
    [/quote]

    By the way, if it can help, the auto-complete function, hint me the myCard when i write the target into the Connection section, but it doesn't hint the "onMyValueHasChanged".
    When i run the code an error says that it can't find myCard and the function



  • Hi foska,

    Are you getting the following error message by any chance?

    QQmlEngine: Illegal attempt to connect to CardWorker(0x231b9b8) that is in a different thread than the QML engine QQmlEngine(0x2265cc8).

    Hi!
    I'm sorry but that wasn't my problem. If you want i can send you some files to show you the way i solved my problem because there is too much code to post it here.
    Ciao ciao!



  • No that's fine.

    I do not have this problem. I was trying to help you figure out what was going wrong.

    Nice to hear you've solved it.
