Detailed Description

The QObjectCleanupHandler class watches the lifetime of multiple QObjects.

A QObjectCleanupHandler is useful whenever you need to know when a number of QObjects that are owned by someone else have been deleted. This is important, for example, when referencing memory in an application that has been allocated in a shared library.

Example:

    class FactoryComponent : public FactoryInterface, public QLibraryInterface
    {
    public:
        ...

        QObject *createObject();

        bool init();
        void cleanup();
        bool canUnload() const;

    private:
        QObjectCleanupHandler objects;
    };

    // allocate a new object, and add it to the cleanup handler
    QObject *FactoryComponent::createObject()
    {
        return objects.add( new QObject() );
    }

    // QLibraryInterface implementation
    bool FactoryComponent::init()
    {
        return TRUE;
    }

    void FactoryComponent::cleanup()
    {
    }

    // it is only safe to unload the library when all QObject's have been destroyed
    bool FactoryComponent::canUnload() const
    {
        return objects.isEmpty();
    }
