The purpose of
QWriteLocker ) is to simplify
QReadWriteLock locking and unlocking. Locking and unlocking statements or in exception handling code is error-prone and difficult to debug.
QReadLocker can be used in such situations to ensure that the state of the lock is always well-defined.
Here’s an example that uses
QReadLocker to lock and unlock a read-write lock for reading:
lock = QReadWriteLock() def readData(): locker = QReadLocker(lock) # ... return data
It is equivalent to the following code:
lock = QReadWriteLock() def readData(): locker.lockForRead() # ... locker.unlock() return data
QMutexLocker documentation shows examples where the use of a locker object greatly simplifies programming.
__exit__(arg__1, arg__2, arg__3)¶
arg__1 – object
arg__2 – object
arg__3 – object
Returns a pointer to the read-write lock that was passed to the constructor.
Relocks an unlocked lock.
Unlocks the lock associated with this locker.
