    Default Play/Pause QPushButton

    I am attempting to add a "Play/Pause" QPushButton for a tile morphing app. My issue is that this button should have two functions in itself (play/pause).

    How would I go about adding the pause functionality? My current code has the play function working:

    Qt Code:
    1. void GLWidget::s_play()
    2. {
    3. m_flagScale = 1;
    4. m_flagCentroid = 1;
    5. m_flagRotate = 1;
    6. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Qt Code:
    1. connect(m_load, SIGNAL(clicked()), this, SLOT(s_loadTiles()));
    2. connect(m_scale, SIGNAL(stateChanged(int)), m_glwidget, SLOT(s_setScale(int)));
    3. connect(m_rotate, SIGNAL(stateChanged(int)), m_glwidget, SLOT(s_setRotate(int)));
    4. connect(m_centroid, SIGNAL(stateChanged(int)), m_glwidget, SLOT(s_setCentroid(int)));
    5. connect(m_play, SIGNAL(clicked()), m_glwidget, SLOT(s_play()));
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Thank for the help in advance!

    What about something like this
    Qt Code:
    1. void GLWidget::switch_play_state()
    2. {
    3. if (m_isPaused == false )
    4. this->s_pause(); // sets m_isPaused=true;
    5. else
    6. this->s_play(); // sets m_isPaused=false;
    7. }
    9. //
    11. connect(m_play, SIGNAL(clicked()), m_glwidget, SLOT(switch_play_state()));
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode
