Detailed Description#

The QCoapClient class contains signals that get triggered when the reply of a sent request has arrived.

The application can use a QCoapClient to send requests over a CoAP network. It provides functions for standard requests: each returns a QCoapReply object, to which the response data shall be delivered; this can be read when the finished() signal arrives.

A simple request can be sent with:

QCoapClient *client = new QCoapClient(this);
connect(client, &QCoapClient::finished, this, &TestClass::slotFinished);
client->get(QCoapRequest(Qurl("coap://coap.me/test")));

Note

After processing of the request has finished, it is the responsibility of the user to delete the QCoapReply object at an appropriate time. Do not directly delete it inside the slot connected to finished() . You can use the deleteLater() function.

You can also use an observe request. This can be used as above, or more conveniently with the notified() signal:

QCoapRequest request = QCoapRequest(Qurl("coap://coap.me/obs"));
QCoapReply *reply = client->observe(request);
connect(reply, &QCoapReply::notified, this, &TestClass::slotNotified);

And the observation can be cancelled with:

client->cancelObserve(reply);

When a reply arrives, the QCoapClient emits a finished() signal.

Note

For a discovery request, the returned object is a QCoapResourceDiscoveryReply . It can be used the same way as a QCoapReply but contains also a list of resources.

class PySide6.QtCoap.QCoapClient([securityMode=QtCoap.SecurityMode.NoSecurity[, parent=None]])#
Parameters

Constructs a QCoapClient object for the given securityMode and sets parent as the parent object.

The default for securityMode is NoSecurity , which disables security.

This connects using a QCoapQUdpConnection; to use a custom transport, sub-class QCoapConnection and pass an instance to one of the other constructors.

PySide6.QtCoap.QCoapClient.cancelObserve(url)#
Parameters

urlPySide6.QtCore.QUrl

This is an overloaded function.

Cancels the observation of a resource identified by the url.

Sends a DELETE request to the target url.

PySide6.QtCoap.QCoapClient.disconnect()#

Closes the open sockets and connections to free the transport.

Note

Parameters
Return type

PySide6.QtCoap.QCoapResourceDiscoveryReply

This is an overloaded function.

Discovers the resources available at the endpoints which have joined the group at the given port. Returns a new QCoapResourceDiscoveryReply object which emits the discovered() signal whenever a response arrives. The group is one of the CoAP multicast group addresses and defaults to AllCoapNodesIPv4 .

Discovery path defaults to “/.well-known/core”, but can be changed by passing a different path to discoveryPath. Discovery is described in RFC 6690 .
