Function Documentation

bool QQuickTest::qIsPolishScheduled(const QQuickItem *item)

Returns true if updatePolish() has not been called on item since the last call to polish(), otherwise returns false.

When assigning values to properties in QML, any layouting the item must do as a result of the assignment might not take effect immediately, but can instead be postponed until the item is polished. For these cases, you can use this function to ensure that the item has been polished before the execution of the test continues. For example:

QVERIFY(QQuickTest::qIsPolishScheduled(item));
QVERIFY(QQuickTest::qWaitForItemPolished(item));

Without the call to qIsPolishScheduled() above, the call to qWaitForItemPolished() might see that no polish was scheduled and therefore pass instantly, assuming that the item had already been polished. This function makes it obvious why an item wasn't polished and allows tests to fail early under such circumstances.

The QML equivalent of this function is isPolishScheduled().

This function was introduced in Qt 5.13.

See also QQuickItem::polish() and QQuickItem::updatePolish().

bool QQuickTest::qWaitForItemPolished(const QQuickItem *item, int timeout = 5000)

Waits for timeout milliseconds or until updatePolish() has been called on item.

Returns true if updatePolish() was called on item within timeout milliseconds, otherwise returns false.

The QML equivalent of this function is waitForItemPolished().

This function was introduced in Qt 5.13.

See also QQuickItem::polish(), QQuickItem::updatePolish(), and QQuickTest::qIsPolishScheduled().

Macro Documentation

QQuickTest::QUICK_TEST_MAIN(name)

Sets up the entry point for a Qt Quick Test application. The name argument uniquely identifies this set of tests.

#include <QtQuickTest>
QUICK_TEST_MAIN(example)

Note: The macro assumes that your test sources are in the current directory, unless the QUICK_TEST_SOURCE_DIR environment variable is set.

See also QUICK_TEST_MAIN_WITH_SETUP() and Running Qt Quick Tests.

QQuickTest::QUICK_TEST_MAIN_WITH_SETUP(name, QuickTestSetupClass)

Sets up the entry point for a Qt Quick Test application. The name argument uniquely identifies this set of tests.

This macro is identical to QUICK_TEST_MAIN(), except that it takes an additional argument QuickTestSetupClass, a pointer to a QObject-derived class. With this class it is possible to define additional setup code to execute before running the QML test.

Note: The macro assumes that your test sources are in the current directory, unless the QUICK_TEST_SOURCE_DIR environment variable is set.

The following snippet demonstrates the use of this macro:

// tst_mytest.cpp
#include <QtQuickTest>
#include <QQmlEngine>
#include <QQmlContext>

class Setup : public QObject
{
    Q_OBJECT

public:
    Setup() {}

public slots:
    void qmlEngineAvailable(QQmlEngine *engine)
    {
        engine->rootContext()->setContextProperty("myContextProperty", QVariant(true));
    }
};

QUICK_TEST_MAIN_WITH_SETUP(mytest, Setup)

#include "tst_mytest.moc"
