Detailed Description

Member Function Documentation

QDBusServer::QDBusServer(QObject *parent = nullptr)

Constructs a QDBusServer with the given parent. The server will listen for connections in /tmp (on Unix systems) or on a TCP port bound to localhost (elsewhere).

QDBusServer::QDBusServer(const QString &address, QObject *parent = nullptr)

Constructs a QDBusServer with the given address, and the given parent.

[signal] void QDBusServer::newConnection(const QDBusConnection &connection)

This signal is emitted when a new client connection connection is established to the server.

[virtual] QDBusServer::~QDBusServer()

Destructs a QDBusServer

QString QDBusServer::address() const

Returns the address this server is associated with.

bool QDBusServer::isAnonymousAuthenticationAllowed() const

Returns true if anonymous authentication is allowed.

Returns true if this QDBusServer object is connected.

If it isn't connected, you need to call the constructor again.

QDBusError QDBusServer::lastError() const
