Detailed Description

QIviFeatureInterface defines the base class for all backends.

To implement a backend for a specific feature you need to derive from this class. There's a one-to-one mapping between a spezialized feature API and its corresponding feature interface class.

The feature interface class specifies which functions and signals need to be implemented by a backend to work with a specific feature.

This base class contains the generic error handling, which is common between all interfaces.

See the full example backend implementation from src/plugins/ivivehiclefunctions/climate_simulator.

Member Function Documentation

QIviFeatureInterface::QIviFeatureInterface(QObject *parent = nullptr)

Default constructs an instance of QIviFeatureInterface.

[protected] QIviFeatureInterface::QIviFeatureInterface(QObjectPrivate &dd, QObject *parent = nullptr)

Default constructs an instance of QIviFeatureInterface.


Destroys the instance of QIviFeatureInterface.

[signal] void QIviFeatureInterface::errorChanged(QIviAbstractFeature::Error error, const QString &message = QString())

The signal is emitted when error occurs in the backend. Error message is optional.

[signal] void QIviFeatureInterface::initializationDone()

The signal is emitted once the current backend state has been sent to the feature after a call to initialize()

See also initialize.

[pure virtual] void QIviFeatureInterface::initialize()

Initializes the backend. This function is called after a feature connected to the backend. It is expected that this function will inform about the current state of the backend by emitting signals with the current status.

The last signal which needs to be sent is the initializationDone() signal.

See also initializationDone().
