Thread: QT: Create new connections when signal is emitted

    Default QT: Create new connections when signal is emitted

    Hello, I would like to create a SLOT that establish some connections between classes. Something like this:

    Qt Code:
    1. void MainWindow::onDocumentDockletUndocked( bool isFloating )
    2. {
    3. if(isFloating) {
    4. foreach(MultiEditor * me, mEditorList) {
    5. connect(me, SIGNAL(currentDocumentChanged(Document*)),
    6. mDocumentsDocklet, SLOT(setCurrent(Document*)));
    7. }
    8. } else {
    9. foreach(MultiEditor * me, mEditorList) {
    10. disconnect(me, SIGNAL(currentDocumentChanged(Document*)),
    11. mDocumentsDocklet, SLOT(setCurrent(Document*)));
    12. }
    13. }
    14. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    This specific example isn't working (though the same works perfectly in a different context).
    So I was wondering: can I established or remove connections on the fly as above?

    Nothing wrong with that code as far as I can see. Do the member variables actually have the values you think they should?

    Please use CODE tags when posting source code so it is more readable. Click "Go Advanced" and then the "#" icon to insert the tags. Paste your code between them.

    d_stranz! You are great (and right)!
    mDocumentDocklet is (slightly) the wrong class, as I need a subclass. Thanks!
