(obsolete) void finished(int exitCode)

Member Function Documentation

QStringList QProcess::environment() const

Returns the environment that QProcess will use when starting a process, or an empty QStringList if no environment has been set using setEnvironment() or setEnvironmentHash(). If no environment has been set, the environment of the calling process will be used.

Note: The environment settings are ignored on Windows CE and Symbian, as there is no concept of an environment.

See also processEnvironment(), setEnvironment(), and systemEnvironment().

[signal] void QProcess::finished(int exitCode)

This is an overloaded function.

Use finished(int exitCode, QProcess::ExitStatus status) instead.

Note:Signal finished is overloaded in this class. To connect to this one using the function pointer syntax, you must specify the signal type in a static cast, as shown in this example:

connect(process, static_cast<void(QProcess::*)(int)>(&QProcess::finished),
    [=](int exitCode){ /* ... */ });

ProcessChannelMode QProcess::readChannelMode() const

Returns the read channel mode of the QProcess. This function is equivalent to processChannelMode()

See also setReadChannelMode() and processChannelMode().

void QProcess::setEnvironment(const QStringList & environment)

Sets the environment that QProcess will use when starting a process to the environment specified which consists of a list of key=value pairs.

For example, the following code adds the C:\\BIN directory to the list of executable paths (PATHS) on Windows:

QProcess process;
QStringList env = QProcess::systemEnvironment();
env << "TMPDIR=C:\\MyApp\\temp"; // Add an environment variable
env.replaceInStrings(QRegExp("^PATH=(.*)", Qt::CaseInsensitive), "PATH=\\1;C:\\Bin");

Note: This function is less efficient than the setProcessEnvironment() function.

See also environment(), setProcessEnvironment(), and systemEnvironment().

void QProcess::setReadChannelMode(ProcessChannelMode mode)

Use setProcessChannelMode(mode) instead.

See also readChannelMode() and setProcessChannelMode().
