|void||start(int msec, QObject *object)|
|void||start(int msec, Qt::TimerType timerType, QObject *obj)|
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().
Member Function Documentation
Contructs a basic timer.
See also start().
Destroys the basic timer.
true if the timer is running and has not been stopped; otherwise returns
void QBasicTimer::start(int msec, QObject *object)
The given object will receive timer events.
void QBasicTimer::start(int msec, Qt::TimerType timerType, QObject *obj)
This is an overloaded function.
Starts (or restarts) the timer with a msec milliseconds timeout and the given timerType. See Qt::TimerType for information on the different timer types.
obj will receive timer events.
Stops the timer.
Returns the timer's ID.
