Detailed Description

The QMetaObject class contains meta information about Qt objects.

The Meta Object System in Qt is responsible for the signal/slot mechanism for communication between objects, runtime type information and the property system. All meta information in Qt is kept in a single instance of QMetaObject per class.

In general, you will not have to use this class directly in any application program. Most of the class members and functions are internal, do not use them .

Some functions, however, are marked as public API and may make sense for certain "meta" applications such as scripting engines or GUI builders:


Member Function Documentation

QClassInfoQMetaObject::classInfo ( int index, bool super = FALSE ) const

Returns the class information with index index or 0 if no such information exists.

If super is TRUE, inherited class information is included.

const char* QMetaObject::classInfo ( const char * name, bool super = FALSE ) const

Returns the class information with name name or 0 if no such information exists.

If super is TRUE, inherited class information is included.

const char * QMetaObject::className () const

Returns the class name.

See also QObject::className() and superClassName().

bool QMetaObject::inherits ( const char * clname ) const

Returns TRUE if this class inherits clname within the meta object inheritance chain.

(A class is considered to inherit itself.).

int QMetaObject::numClassInfo ( bool super = FALSE ) const

Returns the number of class information available for this class.

If super is TRUE, inherited class information is included.

int QMetaObject::numSignals ( bool super = FALSE ) const

Returns the number of signals for this class.

If super is TRUE, inherited signals are included.

See also signalNames().

int QMetaObject::numSlots ( bool super = FALSE ) const

Returns the number of slots for this class.

If super is TRUE, inherited slots are included.

See also slotNames().

const QMetaPropertyQMetaObject::property ( const char * name, bool super = FALSE ) const

Returns the property meta data for the property with name name or 0 if no such property exists.

If super is TRUE, inherited properties are included.

See also propertyNames().

QStrList QMetaObject::propertyNames ( bool super = FALSE ) const

Returns a list with the names of all properties for this class.

If super is TRUE, inherited properties are included.

See also property().

QStrList QMetaObject::signalNames ( bool super = FALSE ) const

Returns a list with the names of all signals for this class.

If super is TRUE, inherited signals are included.

See also signal().

QStrList QMetaObject::slotNames ( bool super = FALSE ) const

Returns a list with the names of all slots for this class.

If super is TRUE, inherited slots are included.

See also numSlots().

QMetaObject * QMetaObject::superClass () const

Returns the meta object of the super class or 0, if there is no such object.

const char * QMetaObject::superClassName () const

Returns the class name of the super class, or 0 if there is no super class in the QObject hierarchy.

See also className().
