    \class QObject
    \brief The QObject class is the base class of all Qt objects.

    \ingroup objectmodel
    \mainclass
    \reentrant

    QObject is the heart of the \l{Qt object model}. The central
    feature in this model is a very powerful mechanism for seamless
    object communication called \l{signals and slots}. You can
    connect a signal to a slot with connect() and destroy the
    connection with disconnect(). To avoid never ending notification
    loops you can temporarily block signals with blockSignals(). The
    protected functions connectNotify() and disconnectNotify() make
    it possible to track connections.

    QObjects organize themselves in object trees. When you create a
    QObject with another object as parent, the object will
    automatically add itself to the parent's children() list. The
    parent takes ownership of the object i.e. it will automatically
    delete its children in its destructor. You can look for an object
    by name and optionally type using findChild() or findChildren().

    Every object has an objectName() and its class name can be found
    via the corresponding metaObject() (see QMetaObject::className()).
    You can determine whether the object's class inherits another
    class in the QObject inheritance hierarchy by using the
    inherits() function.

    When an object is deleted, it emits a destroyed() signal. You can
    catch this signal to avoid dangling references to QObjects. The
    QPointer class provides an elegant way to use this feature.

    QObjects can receive events through event() and filter the events
    of other objects. See installEventFilter() and eventFilter() for
    details. A convenience handler, childEvent(), can be reimplemented
    to catch child events.

    Events are delivered in the thread in which the object was
    created; see \l{Thread Support in Qt} and thread() for details.
    Note that event processing is not done at all for QObjects with no
    thread affinity (thread() returns zero). Use the moveToThread()
    function to change the thread affinity for an object and its
    children (the object cannot be moved if it has a parent).

    Last but not least, QObject provides the basic timer support in
    Qt; see QTimer for high-level support for timers.

    Notice that the Q_OBJECT macro is mandatory for any object that
    implements signals, slots or properties. You also need to run the
    \l{moc}{Meta Object Compiler} on the source file. We strongly
    recommend the use of this macro in all subclasses of QObject
    regardless of whether or not they actually use signals, slots and
    properties, since failure to do so may lead certain functions to
    exhibit strange behavior.

    All Qt widgets inherit QObject. The convenience function
    isWidgetType() returns whether an object is actually a widget. It
    is much faster than
    \l{qobject_cast()}{qobject_cast}<QWidget *>(\e{obj}) or
    \e{obj}->\l{inherits()}{inherits}("QWidget").

    Some QObject functions, e.g. children(), return a QObjectList.
    QObjectList is a typedef for QList<QObject *>.

    \section1 Auto-Connection

    Qt's meta-object system provides a mechanism to automatically connect
    signals and slots between QObject subclasses and their children. As long
    as objects are defined with suitable object names, and slots follow a
    simple naming convention, this connection can be performed at run-time
    by the QMetaObject::connectSlotsByName() function.

    \l uic generates code that invokes this function to enable auto-connection
    to be performed between widgets on forms created with \QD. More information
    about using auto-connection with \QD is given in the
    \l{Using a Component in Your Application#A Dialog With Auto-Connect}{Using a
    Component in Your Application} section of the \QD manual.

    The class T must inherit (directly or indirectly) QObject and be
    declared with the \l Q_OBJECT macro.

    The qobject_cast() function behaves similarly to the standard C++
    \c dynamic_cast(), with the advantages that it doesn't require

/*!
    Starts a timer and returns a timer identifier, or returns zero if
    it could not start a timer.

    A timer event will occur every \a interval milliseconds until
    killTimer() is called. If \a interval is 0, then the timer event
    occurs once every time there are no more window system events to
    process.

    The virtual timerEvent() function is called with the QTimerEvent
    event parameter class when a timer event occurs. Reimplement this
    function to get timer events.

    If multiple timers are running, the QTimerEvent::timerId() can be
    used to find out which timer was activated.

    Example:

    \code
        class MyObject : public QObject
        {
            Q_OBJECT

        public:
            MyObject(QObject *parent = 0);

        protected:
            void timerEvent(QTimerEvent *event);
        };

        MyObject::MyObject(QObject *parent)
            : QObject(parent)
        {
            startTimer(50);     // 50-millisecond timer
            startTimer(1000);   // 1-second timer
            startTimer(60000);  // 1-minute timer
        }

        void MyObject::timerEvent(QTimerEvent *event)
        {
            qDebug() << "Timer ID:" << event->timerId();
        }
    \endcode

    Note that QTimer's accuracy depends on the underlying operating
    system and hardware. Most platforms support an accuracy of 20
    milliseconds; some provide more. If Qt is unable to deliver the
    requested number of timer events, it will silently discard some.

    The QTimer class provides a high-level programming interface with
    single-shot timers and timer signals instead of events. There is
    also a QBasicTimer class that is more lightweight than QTimer and
    less clumsy than using timer IDs directly.

    Searches the children and optionally grandchildren of this object,
    and returns a list of those objects that are named or that match
    \a objName and inherit \a inheritsClass. If \a inheritsClass is 0
    (the default), all classes match. If \a objName is 0 (the
    default), all object names match.

    If \a regexpMatch is true (the default), \a objName is a regular
    expression that the objects's names must match. The syntax is that
    of a QRegExp. If \a regexpMatch is false, \a objName is a string
    and object names must match it exactly.

    Note that \a inheritsClass uses single inheritance from QObject,
    the way inherits() does. According to inherits(), QWidget
    inherits QObject but not QPaintDevice. This does not quite match
    reality, but is the best that can be done on the wide variety of
    compilers Qt supports.

    Finally, if \a recursiveSearch is true (the default), queryList()
    searches \e{n}th-generation as well as first-generation children.

    If all this seems a bit complex for your needs, the simpler
    child() function may be what you want.

    This somewhat contrived example disables all the buttons in this
    window:

    \code

    \warning Delete the list as soon you have finished using it. The
    list contains pointers that may become invalid at almost any time
    without notice (as soon as the user closes a window you may have
    dangling pointers, for example).

    An event filter is an object that receives all events that are

    forward it to this object. The event filter \a filterObj receives
    events via its eventFilter() function. The eventFilter() function
    must return true if the event should be filtered, (i.e. stopped);
    otherwise it must return false.

    If multiple event filters are installed on a single object, the
    filter that was installed last is activated first.

    Here's a \c KeyPressEater class that eats the key presses of its
    monitored objects:

    \fn QString QObject::tr(const char *sourceText, const char *comment, int n)
    \reentrant

    Returns a translated version of \a sourceText, or \a sourceText
    itself if there is no appropriate translated version. The
    translation context is Object with \a comment (0 by default).
    All QObject subclasses using the Q_OBJECT macro automatically have
    a reimplementation of this function with the subclass name as
    context.

    You can set the encoding for \a sourceText by calling QTextCodec::setCodecForTr().
    By default \a sourceText is assumed to be in Latin-1 encoding.

    Example:

    \code
        MyWindow::MyWindow()
        {
            QLabel *nameLabel = new QLabel(tr("Name:"));
            QLabel *addressLabel = new QLabel(tr("Address:", "i.e. a postal address"));
            ...
        }
    \endcode

    If \a n >= 0, all occurrences of \c %n in the resulting string
    are replaced with a decimal representation of \a n. In addition,
    depending on \a n's value, the translation text may vary.

    Example:

    \code
        int n = messages.count();
        showMessage(tr("%n message(s) saved", "", n));
    \endcode

    The table below shows what string is returned depending on the
    active translation:

    \table
    \header \o      \o{3,1} Active Translation
    \header \o \a n \o No Translation        \o French                                 \o English
    \row    \o 0    \o "0 message(s) saved"  \o "0 message sauvegard\unicode{0xE9}"    \o "0 message\bold{s} saved"
    \row    \o 1    \o "1 message(s) saved"  \o "1 message sauvegard\unicode{0xE9}"    \o "1 message saved"
    \row    \o 2    \o "2 message(s) saved"  \o "2 message\bold{s} sauvegard\unicode{0xE9}\bold{s}"  \o "2 message\bold{s} saved"
    \row    \o 37   \o "37 message(s) saved" \o "37 message\bold{s} sauvegard\unicode{0xE9}\bold{s}" \o "37 message\bold{s} saved"
    \endtable

    This idiom is more flexible than the traditional approach, i.e.,

    \code
        n == 1 ? tr("%n message saved") : tr("%n messages saved")
    \endcode

    because it also works with target languages that have several
    plural forms (e.g., Irish has a special "dual" form that should
    be used when \c n is 2), and it handles the \e n == 0 case
    correctly for languages such as French that require the singular.
    See the \l{Qt Linguist Manual} for details.

    Instead of \c %n, you can use \c %Ln to produce a localized
    representation of \a n. The conversion uses the default local,
    set using QLocal::setDefault(). (If no default locale was
    specified, the "C" locale is used.)

    \warning This method is reentrant only if all translators are
    installed \e before calling this method. Installing or removing
    translators while performing translations is not supported. Doing
    so will probably result in crashes or other undesirable behavior.

    \sa trUtf8(), QApplication::translate(), QTextCodec::setCodecForTr(), {Internationalization with Qt}

/*!
    \fn QString QObject::trUtf8(const char *sourceText, const char *comment, int n)
    \reentrant

    Returns a translated version of \a sourceText, or

    version. It is otherwise identical to tr(\a sourceText, \a

/*!
    \threadsafe

    Creates a connection of the given \a type from the \a signal in
    the \a sender object to the \a method in the \a receiver object.
    Returns true if the connection succeeds; otherwise returns false.

    You must use the \c SIGNAL() and \c SLOT() macros when specifying
    the \a signal and the \a method, for example:

    \code
        QLabel *label = new QLabel;
        QScrollBar *scrollBar = new QScrollBar;
        QObject::connect(scrollBar, SIGNAL(valueChanged(int)),
                         label,  SLOT(setNum(int)));
    \endcode

    This example ensures that the label always displays the current
    scroll bar value. Note that the signal and slots parameters must not
    contain any variable names, only the type. E.g. the following would
    not work and return false:

    \code
        // WRONG
        QObject::connect(scrollBar, SIGNAL(valueChanged(int value)),
                         label, SLOT(setNum(int value)));
    \endcode

    A signal can also be connected to another signal:

    \code
        class MyWidget : public QWidget
        {
            Q_OBJECT

        public:
            MyWidget();

        signals:
            void buttonClicked();

        private:
            QPushButton *myButton;
        };

        MyWidget::MyWidget()
        {
            myButton = new QPushButton(this);
            connect(myButton, SIGNAL(clicked()),
                    this, SIGNAL(buttonClicked()));
        }
    \endcode

    In this example, the \c MyWidget constructor relays a signal from
    a private member variable, and makes it available under a name
    that relates to \c MyWidget.

    A signal can be connected to many slots and signals. Many signals
    can be connected to one slot.

    If a signal is connected to several slots, the slots are activated
    in an arbitrary order when the signal is emitted.

    The function returns true if it successfully connects the signal
    to the slot. It will return false if it cannot create the
    connection, for example, if QObject is unable to verify the
    existence of either \a signal or \a method, or if their signatures
    aren't compatible.

    A signal is emitted for every connection you make, so if you
    duplicate a connection, two signals will be emitted. You can
    always break a connection using disconnect().

    The optional \a type parameter describes the type of connection
    to establish. In particular, it determines whether a particular
    signal is delivered to a slot immediately or queued for delivery
    at a later time. If the signal is queued, the parameters must be
    of types that are known to Qt's meta-object system, because Qt
    needs to copy the arguments to store them in an event behind the
    scenes. If you try to use a queued connection and get the error
    message

    \code
        QObject::connect: Cannot queue arguments of type 'MyType'
        (Make sure 'MyType' is registed using qRegisterMetaType().)
    \endcode

    call qRegisterMetaType() to register the data type before you
    establish the connection.

    0 may be used as a wildcard, meaning "any signal", "any receiving
    object", or "any slot in the receiving object", respectively.

    The \a sender may never be 0. (You cannot disconnect signals from
    more than one object in a single call.)

    If \a signal is 0, it disconnects \a receiver and \a method from
    any signal. If not, only the specified signal is disconnected.

    If \a receiver is 0, it disconnects anything connected to \a
    signal. If not, slots in objects other than \a receiver are not
    disconnected.

    If \a method is 0, it disconnects anything that is connected to \a
    receiver. If not, only slots named \a method will be disconnected,
    and all other slots are left alone. The \a method must be 0 if \a
    receiver is left out, so you cannot disconnect a
    specifically-named slot on all objects.

    \macro Q_CLASSINFO(Name, Value)
    \relates QObject

    This macro associates extra information to the class, which is
    available using QObject::metaObject(). Except for the ActiveQt
    extension, Qt doesn't use this information.

    The extra information takes the form of a \a Name string and a \a
    Value literal string.

    Example:

    \code
        class MyClass : public QObject
        {
            Q_OBJECT
            Q_CLASSINFO("Author", "Pierre Gendron")
            Q_CLASSINFO("URL", "http://www.my-organization.qc.ca")

        public:
            ...
        };
    \endcode

    \sa QMetaObject::classInfo()
*/

/*!
    \macro Q_INTERFACES(...)
    \relates QObject

    This macro tells Qt which interfaces the class implements. This
    is used when implementing plugins.

    Example:

    \quotefromfile tools/plugandpaintplugins/basictools/basictoolsplugin.h
    \skipto class BasicToolsPlugin
    \printuntil public:
    \dots
    \skipto };
    \printline };

    See the \l{tools/plugandpaintplugins/basictools}{Plug & Paint
    Basic Tools} example for details.

    \sa Q_DECLARE_INTERFACE(), Q_EXPORT_PLUGIN2(), {How to Create Qt Plugins}
*/

/*!
    \macro Q_PROPERTY(...)
    \relates QObject

    This macro declares a QObject property. The syntax is:

    \code
        Q_PROPERTY(type name
                   READ getFunction
                   [WRITE setFunction]
                   [RESET resetFunction]
                   [DESIGNABLE bool]
                   [SCRIPTABLE bool]
                   [STORED bool])
    \endcode

    For example:

    \code
        Q_PROPERTY(QString title READ title WRITE setTitle)
    \endcode

    \sa {Qt's Property System}
*/

/*!
    \macro Q_ENUMS(...)
    \relates QObject

    This macro registers one or several enum types to the meta-object
    system.

    For example:

    \code
    class MyClass : public QObject
    {
        Q_OBJECT
        Q_ENUMS(Priority)

    public:
        MyClass(QObject *parent = 0);
        ~MyClass();

        enum Priority { High, Low, VeryHigh, VeryLow };
        void setPriority(Priority priority);
        Priority priority() const;
    };
    \endcode

    If you want to register an enum that is declared in another class,
    the enum must be fully qualified with the name of the class
    defining it. In addition, the class \e defining the enum has to
    inherit QObject as well as declare the enum using Q_ENUMS().

    \sa {Qt's Property System}
*/

/*!
    \macro Q_FLAGS(...)
    \relates QObject

    This macro registers one or several "flags" types to the
    meta-object system.

    Example:

    \code
        Q_FLAGS(Options Alignment)
    \endcode

    \sa {Qt's Property System}
*/

/*!
    \macro Q_OBJECT
    \relates QObject

    The Q_OBJECT macro must appear in the private section of a class
    definition that declares its own signals and slots or that uses
    other services provided by Qt's meta-object system.

    For example:

    \quotefromfile snippets/signalsandslots/signalsandslots.h
    \skipto ObjectCounter
    \skipto include <QObject>
    \printline include
    \printline class Counter
    \printuntil };

    \sa {Meta-Object System}, {Signals and Slots}, {Qt's Property System}
*/

/*!
    \typedef QObjectList
    \relates QObject

    Synonym for QList<QObject *>.
