Synopsis

Detailed Description

This is a fast, lightweight, and low-level class used by Qt internally. We recommend using the higher-level QTimer class rather than this class if you want to use timers in your applications. Note that this timer is a repeating timer that will send subsequent timer events unless the stop() function is called.

To use this class, create a QBasicTimer , and call its start() function with a timeout interval and with a pointer to a QObject subclass. When the timer times out it will send a timer event to the QObject subclass. The timer can be stopped at any time using stop() . isActive() returns true for a timer that is running; i.e. it has been started, has not reached the timeout time, and has not been stopped. The timer’s ID can be retrieved using timerId() .

Objects of this class cannot be copied, but can be moved, so you can maintain a list of basic timers by holding them in container that supports move-only types, e.g. std::vector.

The Wiggly example uses QBasicTimer to repaint a widget at regular intervals.
