    Default Order of signals and slots

    Hi again.
    If I have this method in a class:

    Qt Code:
    1. int MyClass::foo()
    2. {
    3. emit MySignal();
    4. return 4;
    5. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    can I always be sure that the signal is emitted, code in slots are being run, and finished, and then it will return the value 4? No chanse of returning 4 before all slots and signals have finished?

    All slots connected to this signal using direct connection will be executed immediately (like a function call), but those which use queued connections will be executed when appropriate event queue picks up the meta call event.
