Detailed Description

The QScxmlEvent class is an event for a Qt SCXML state machine.

SCXML events drive transitions. Most events are generated by using the <raise> and <send> elements in the application. The state machine automatically generates some mandatory events, such as errors.

For more information, see SCXML Specification - 5.10.1 The Internal Structure of Events. For more information about how the Qt SCXML API differs from the specification, see SCXML Compliance.

See also QScxmlStateMachine.

Member Type Documentation

enum QScxmlEvent::EventType

This enum type specifies the type of an SCXML event:

ConstantValueDescription
QScxmlEvent::PlatformEvent0An event generated internally by the state machine. For example, errors.
QScxmlEvent::InternalEvent1An event generated by a <raise> element.
QScxmlEvent::ExternalEvent2An event generated by a <send> element.

Property Documentation

data : QVariant

This property holds the data included by the sender.

When <param> elements are used in the <send> element, the data will contain a QVariantMap where the key is the name attribute, and the value is taken from the expr attribute or the location attribute.

When a <content> element is used, the data will contain a single item with either the value of the expr attribute of the <content> element or the child data of the <content> element.

Access functions:

QVariant data() const
void setData(const QVariant &data)

delay : int

This property holds the delay in milliseconds after which the event is to be delivered after processing the <send> element.

Access functions:

int delay() const
void setDelay(int delayInMiliSecs)

errorEvent : const bool

This property holds whether the event represents an error.

Access functions:

bool isErrorEvent() const

errorMessage : QString

This property holds an error message for an error event, or an empty QString.

Access functions:

QString errorMessage() const
void setErrorMessage(const QString &message)

eventType : EventType

This property holds the type of the event.

Access functions:

EventType eventType() const
void setEventType(const EventType &type)

invokeId : QString

This property holds the ID of the invoked state machine if the event is generated by one.

Access functions:

QString invokeId() const
void setInvokeId(const QString &invokeid)

name : QString

This property holds the name of the event.

If the event is generated inside the SCXML document, this property holds the value of the event attribute specified inside the <raise> or <send> element.

If the event is created in the C++ code and submitted to the QScxmlStateMachine, the value of this property is matched against the value of the event attribute specified inside the <transition> element in the SCXML document.

Access functions:

QString name() const
void setName(const QString &name)

origin : QString

This property holds the URI that points to the origin of an SCXML event.

The origin is equivalent to the target attribute of the <send> element.

Access functions:

QString origin() const
void setOrigin(const QString &origin)

originType : QString

This property holds the origin type of an SCXML event.

The origin type is equivalent to the type attribute of the <send> element.

Access functions:

QString originType() const
void setOriginType(const QString &origintype)

scxmlType : const QString

This property holds the event type.

Access functions:

QString scxmlType() const

sendId : QString

This property holds the ID of the event.

The ID is used by the <cancel> element to identify the event to be canceled.

Note: The state machine generates a unique ID if the id attribute is not specified in the <send> element. The generated ID can be accessed through this property.

Access functions:

QString sendId() const
void setSendId(const QString &sendid)
