Code interlude – signals and slots

by Ray Rischpater | November 2013 | Open Source

This article is by Ray Rischpater, author of the book Application Development with Qt Creator. In software systems, there is often the need to couple different objects. Ideally, this coupling should be loose, that is, not dependent on the system's compile-time configuration. This is especially obvious when you consider user interfaces; for example, a button press may adjust the contents of a text widget or cause something to appear or disappear. Many systems use events for this purpose; components offering data encapsulate that data in an event, and an event loop (or, more recently, an event listener) catches the event and performs some action.
