View Full Version : Multiple threads with one QTcpSocket

Hi,

From what I gather from the docs, one cannot set the same socket descriptor across multiple QTcpSockets in different threads.

Is there a way around this if one just wants to have one thread read while the other writes?

Thanks.

Why would you want that (and no, there is no way to do it the Qt way)?

Thanks for the reply. I have a write thread that needs to block on a message queue, processes the queue data, then write it out to the socket. I have another thread who's responsibilities is to read data from the socket and generate events. I thought it would just be simplier to have the two threads doing their own thing. I guess I will have to just have one thread which then waits for signals on socket data received and an insertion into the queue.
