Detailed Description

This class is used in QOpcUaNode::enableMonitoring() requests and as return value for QOpcUaNode::monitoringStatus() in which case it contains the revised values from the server.


For most use cases, only the publishing interval is required.

QOpcUaMonitoringParameters p(100); // Set a publishing interval of 100ms and share the subscription.
node->enableMonitoring(QOpcUa::NodeAttribute::Value, p);

If an exclusive subscription is required, use the second parameter.

QOpcUaMonitoringParameters p(100, QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::SubscriptionType::Exclusive); // Create a new subscription

To add additional items to an existing subscription, use the third parameter for the next calls to QOpcUaNode::enableMonitoring().

quint32 subscriptionId = node->monitoringStatus(QOpcUa::NodeAttribute::Value).subscriptionId();
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters p(100, QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::SubscriptionType::Shared, subscriptionId); // Add the monitored item to this subscription

If other parameters are required, they must be set using the setter methods.

Backend support

Not all parameters in this class are supported by all backends.

Member Type Documentation

enum class QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::MonitoringMode

This enum is used to set the monitoring mode for a monitored item.

QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::MonitoringMode::Disabled0Sampling is disabled and no notifications are being generated.
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::MonitoringMode::Sampling1Sampling is enabled and notifications are generated and queued, but reporting is disabled.
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::MonitoringMode::Reporting2Sampling is enabled, notifications are generated and queued, reporting is enabled.

enum class QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameter
flags QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameters

Enumerates parameters that can be modified at runtime using QOpcUaNode::modifyMonitoring(). Not all values are guaranteed to be supported by all plugins. Lack of support will be reported in the QOpcUaNode::monitoringStatusChanged signal.

QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameter::PublishingEnabled(1 << 0)
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameter::PublishingInterval(1 << 1)
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameter::LifetimeCount(1 << 2)
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameter::MaxKeepAliveCount(1 << 3)
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameter::MaxNotificationsPerPublish(1 << 4)
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameter::Priority(1 << 5)

QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameter::QueueSize(1 << 8)
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameter::DiscardOldest(1 << 9)
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::Parameter::MonitoringMode(1 << 10)

The Parameters type is a typedef for QFlags<Parameter>. It stores an OR combination of Parameter values.

enum class QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::SubscriptionType

This enum is used to determine if the monitored item can be added to a shared subscription or if a new subscription must be created.

QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::SubscriptionType::Shared0Share subscription with other monitored items with the same interval
QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::SubscriptionType::Exclusive1Request a new subscription for this attribute

Member Function Documentation

QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::QOpcUaMonitoringParameters(const QOpcUaMonitoringParameters &other)

Constructs a QOpcuaMonitoringParameters object from the value of other.

QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::QOpcUaMonitoringParameters(double publishingInterval, QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::SubscriptionType shared = SubscriptionType::Shared, quint32 subscriptionId = 0)

This is the constructor which covers most use cases for the Qt OPC UA user. publishingInterval must be supplied, shared and subscriptionId are optional.


The default constructor for QOpcUaMonitoringParameters.

QOpcUaMonitoringParameters &QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::operator=(const QOpcUaMonitoringParameters &other)

Assigns the value of other to this object.


The destructor for QOpcUaMonitoringParameters.

void QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::clearFilter()

Removes the current filter from the monitoring parameters.

See also filter() and setFilter().

void QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::clearFilterResult()

Removes the current filter result from the monitoring parameters.

See also filterResult() and setFilterResult().

bool QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::discardOldest() const

Returns the discardOldest setting of the monitored item.

See also setDiscardOldest().

QVariant QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::filter() const

Returns the current filter.

See also setFilter().

QVariant QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::filterResult() const

Returns the filter result.

This value is empty for an attribute monitoring. In case of an event monitoring, the filter result can be empty if the server did not detect any errors in the filter.

See also setFilterResult().

QString QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::indexRange() const

Returns the index range for the monitored item.

See also setIndexRange().

bool QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::isPublishingEnabled() const

Returns the publishing mode for the subscription.

quint32 QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::lifetimeCount() const

Returns the lifetime count of the subscription.

See also setLifetimeCount().

quint32 QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::maxKeepAliveCount() const

Returns the maximum keepalive count of the subscription.

See also setMaxKeepAliveCount().

quint32 QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::maxNotificationsPerPublish() const

Returns the maximum notifications per publish value of the subscription.

See also setMaxNotificationsPerPublish().

quint32 QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::monitoredItemId() const

Returns the monitored item id assigned by the server. If the monitored item id is 0, the monitored item could not be successfully created.

See also setMonitoredItemId().

QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::MonitoringMode QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::monitoringMode() const

Returns the monitoring mode for the monitored item.

See also setMonitoringMode().

quint8 QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::priority() const

Returns the priority of the subscription used for the monitored item.

See also setPriority().

double QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::publishingInterval() const

Returns the publishing interval of the subscription. The interval is expressed in milliseconds.

See also setPublishingInterval().

quint32 QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::queueSize() const

Returns the queue size of the monitored item.

See also setQueueSize().

double QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::samplingInterval() const

Returns the revised sampling interval of the monitored item. The interval is expressed in milliseconds.

See also setSamplingInterval().

void QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::setDiscardOldest(bool discardOldest)

Set discardOldest as discardOldest setting for the monitored item.

See also discardOldest().

void QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::setFilter(const QOpcUaMonitoringParameters::DataChangeFilter &filter)

Sets DataChangeFilter filter as filter for the monitored item. If another data change filter or an event filter is present, it will be replaced.
