    Default Use QRunnable without QThreadPool

    Hi
    Is it useful to use a QRunnable without a QThreadPool. I saw a program where the a QRunnable is instanitated and then the method run is called.
    What's the advantage for this, because I didn't see a QThreadPool.

    Runs the run method in it's own thread?

    thank u

    There is no advantage. It's just like called an ordinary method of an ordinary class. No threading is involved.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.

    ok thank u for your reply.
    another little question = ):

    If I instantiate a QEventLoop in a class and call exec(), nothing happens until a connected slot calls loop.quit();
    After the quit call, the methods after the exec-call are processed? is this correct?

    Qt Code:
    1. loop.exec();
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode
