Error at using setTextCursor with Scroll.
Robot last edited by
Now I develop some Code editor, I have a big problem.
I am using Qt4.
The problem is occur at using Function of Highlighter current line with scrolling the QtextEdit.
I used this highlighting code : http://www.qtcentre.org/threads/45634-QPlainTextEdit-highlight-selected-line
and I made thread for Code editor and inside of thread use this function
the error message is differ at some time.
first thing is :
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread 0xa975cb40]
0xb6ec3fb1 in QTextLine::cursorTox(int*, QTextLine::Edge) const()
second thing is :
[xcb] Unknown request in queue while dequeuing
[xcb] Most likely this is a multi-threaded client and XInitThreads has not been called
[xcb] Aborting, sorry about that.
dequeue_pending_request: Assertion '!xcb_xlib_unknown_req_in_deq' failed.
Error occur when change position of cursor with scrolling at gui.
sometimes if i don't use scroll with short code, this problem occured.
I don't know why this problem occur at this time.
I want to get a hint for solve this problem.
Please give me a you mention!
@Robot SIGSEGV is usually caused by a dangling/null pointer. Check this:
QTextCursor cursor(_pEditor->findBlockByLineNumber(line)); _pEditor->setTextCursor(cursor);
is _pEditor null or dangling pointer?
Do I understand you correctly that you have a second thread where you're handling your editor? If so then: DON'T DO THAT! All GUI related Qt classes (everything derived from QWidget) are not thread safe and should not be used outside of the main thread!

Thank for reply it.
_pEditor is not a dangling/null pointer.
this pointer is class that inherited QplainTextedit.
about your comment, I use second thread for doing coed that user made with _pEditor(QplainTextedit) and then use GUI classes for user.
I want to give for user what is the line that currently doing at made _pEditor.
so every execute of code, I change the current line with setTextCursor and Highlighter.
but you said to me, I can't use GUI classes outside of main thread, How can I Highlight current line?!
@Robot "_pEditor is not a dangling/null pointer" - how did you verify this? As I said SIGSEGV is usually caused by/null/dangling pointers - you should debug your app to find out what happens when it crashes.
To your second question: your second thread should not modify the UI, instead it should emit a signal with needed parameters. In your GUI thread connect this signal to a slot where you then update your UI.
