Member Function Documentation

◆ run()

void libcamera::ThreadMain::run ( )

Main function of the thread.

When the thread is started with start(), it calls this function in the context of the new thread. The run() function can be overridden to perform custom work, either custom initialization and cleanup before and after calling the Thread::exec() function, or a custom thread loop altogether. When this function returns the thread execution is stopped, and the finished signal is emitted.

Note that if this function is overridden and doesn't call Thread::exec(), no events will be dispatched to the objects living in the thread. These objects will not be able to use the EventNotifier, Timer or Message facilities. This includes functions that rely on message dispatching, such as Object::deleteLater().

The base implementation just calls exec().

Reimplemented from libcamera::Thread.
