QCoreApplication::sendPostedEvents: Cannot send posted events for objects in another thread ??????

by: DiIvPa | Views: 26 | Forum: website | Last post by SGaist, 6 hours ago

Dear Forumers, I got unexpected message from my UI I wrote for control some third party equipment.
Unfortunately the code has a lot of lines and it is useless to put it here and I cann’t to shrink one. I think it would be better to discribe the codes briefly. I have main thread and 2 threads to read of and to write into equipment controller (these 2 threads do nothing exept sending and getting messages for main thread). In main thread I use the QInputDialog and need the QComboBox. I prepared the QStringList and issued the command:

  1. dialog01 -> setComboBoxItems( this -> QComboBoxlist_dialog01 );

and got the message in topic title. I only read the messages, prepared the QComboBoxlist_dialog01. The UI continues to work so as if nothing happend. How to find the cause of message ? Any hint are welcomed. Thank very much everybody in advance for help.

Below you can find links to 2 Chrome browser extensions that can enhance your Qt forums experience:

  • QtDN badge: useful to quickly read the number of unread posts and access your profile. Link []
  • Qt Doc Search to quickly access Qt documentation online. Link []

Neither was created by me, I only provide them free advertising ;) I use both tools every day while using the forum.

It is just my curiosity :)


So we can ban ourselves now?

by: utcenter | Views: 109 | Forum: website | Last post by Eddy, 18 hours ago

I just noticed this extra new item:


Banning apparently doesn’t work, because when I clicked to see what happens:

The following errors were encountered
There is no content to display on this link or it has restricted access.

It does look like a website bug.

How to improve the site?

by: Tero Kojo | Views: 1195 | Forum: website | Last post by dboddie_work, March 25, 2014


I’ve now been looking around, having discussions and wondering about things, and have now come to some form of understanding on what should be done with the site.

The things I’ve read on the wiki about the ideas that have been put down for the future of the site [] pretty much ring true to me.

Looking at the infrastructure there are a number of actions that need to be investigated and taken:

  • Moving the wiki to the MediaWiki that is currently running at [] (yes, I was just as surprised as anyone to find it there. It is locked at the moment, but it’s there)
  • Cleaning the current userbase, there are user ids that have not been used in a long time. Cleaning needs to happen to make other actions possible
  • Moving the userbase to the Atlassian tools that are running and in use for bugreports and codereview
  • Moving the static pages like the documentation to another CMS (WordPress comes to mind with it’s large and active developer base)
  • Moving the forums to another platform (if WordPress for the static part, then bbPress would be a natural choise, but that needs a discussion) This task is actually pretty big, because we need to preserve the history. Also this needs to happen at the same time as the userbase move, or it needs to be co-ordinated with it.

As you can see the theme here is moving away from expression engine. The current install is pretty hacked in every corner, and with the original developers gone, there are things that can not be updated without a prohibitive amount of work. That is part of the reason I have been closing old bugs, with the current platform there is fairly little that can be done easily.

Having task specific tools for each part of the site (wiki, static pages, forum) should also provide a better possibility for anyone to advance to maintain some aspect of the site (compare with the current problems in giving out moderator rights)
