Is there a reason why QSignalSpy doesn't support the new style of writing signals?
I'm using Qt 5.4 though looking at the documentation of 5.10 it seems things haven't changed namely for a given
QObject *(let's call it
obj) with a given signal (let's call it
QSignalSpy objS = new QSignalSpy(obj, SIGNAL(signalFoo(bool)));
is possible however
QSignalSpy objS = new QSignalSpy(obj, Obj::signalFoo(bool));
Is there any particular reason why the new style (the second one) is not available here?
@Red-Baron In Qt 5.10 it should work, see: http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qsignalspy.html#QSignalSpy-1
Did you try with Qt 5.10?
You know what...I did such a silly mistake. I forgot the
&in front of the class' name and no wonder it didn't work. facepalm I totally missed the second overriding of the
QSignalSpyconstructor and a big thank you for pointing that out. It clearly states: This function was introduced in 5.4. It also made me notice the mistake I've made in my own code.
