I have a QThread that creates a QGraphicsSimpleTextItem. When I close my application I try to finish the thread and then terminate it.
if( !QThread::wait(1000) ) QThread::terminate();
Everything is fine until I add a call to
QGraphicsSimpleTextItem::setFont() in my thread. If I do so, Qt's internal QFontCache system is called and will start a QTimer (from my thread). Then when I terminate the QThread, killTimer is called (from the main) when Qt cleans up the event loops and I get the error:
QObject::killTimers: timers cannot be stopped from another thread
What should I do to avoid this problem? Shouldn't that be considered as a bug of the font caching mechanism? Thanks for your help.
