Policies/Library Code Policy/Shared D-Pointer Example

Jump to: navigation, search

The following example illustrates the shared d-pointer concept. The class presented here derives from QObject to illustrate parameter-passing in the constructor; it is not necessary to be like that in your code.

The header file, without Q_DECLARE_PRIVATE

class KFooBasePrivate;
class KFooBase : public QObject
{
public:
    KFooBase(QObject *parent);
    ~KFooBase();
    void setSomeInteger(int i);
    int someInteger() const;
protected:
    const QScopePointer<KFooBasePrivate> d_ptr;
    KFooBase(KFooBasePrivate &dd, QObject *parent);
private:
    friend class KFooBasePrivate;
    inline KFooBasePrivate *d_func() { return d_ptr; }
    inline const KFooBasePrivate *d_func() const { return d_ptr; }
};
 
class KFooDerivedPrivate;
class KFooDerived : public KFooBase
{
public:
    KFooDerived(QObject *parent);
    void setAnotherInteger(int i);
    int anotherInteger() const;
    int sumOfIntegers() const;
protected:
    KFooDerived(KFooDerivedPrivate &dd, QObject *parent);
private:
    friend class KFooDerivedPrivate;
    inline KFooDerivedPrivate *d_func()
    { return reinterpret_cast<KFooDerivedPrivate *>(d_ptr.data()); }
    inline const KFooDerivedPrivate *d_func() const
    { return reinterpret_cast<KFooDerivedPrivate *>(d_ptr.data()); }
};

The header file, with Q_DECLARE_PRIVATE

class KFooBasePrivate;
class KFooBase : public QObject
{
public:
    KFooBase(QObject *parent);
    ~KFooBase();
    void setSomeInteger(int i);
    int someInteger() const;
protected:
    const QScopePointer<KFooBasePrivate>  d_ptr;
    KFooBase(KFooBasePrivate &dd, QObject *parent);
private:
    Q_DECLARE_PRIVATE(KFooBase)
};
 
class KFooDerivedPrivate;
class KFooDerived : public KFooBase
{
public:
    KFooDerived(QObject *parent);
    void setAnotherInteger(int i);
    int anotherInteger() const;
    int sumOfIntegers() const;
protected:
    KFooDerived(KFooDerivedPrivate &dd, QObject *parent);
private:
    Q_DECLARE_PRIVATE(KFooDerived)
};
