QOrbiter manager is what it sounds like. It manages the flow of operations in QOrbiter between the different context objects and the threaded dce side of the program. It can be accessed through 'manager'

QorbiterManger is the Qt object responsible for managing the initial setup state of the orbiter, as well as containing some key properties and signals. It is also used and an intermediary object, emitting cross thread signals from the UI to prevent blocking operations.

Functions and Properties can be accessed via manager.function() or manager.propertyName


Properties are accessed by: dceTimecode.propertyname
Property Name Property Type Signal Description Example
appH int orientationChanged() application window height
appW int orientationChanged() application window width
runningTimer double positionChanged() Used to constantly update the position of the seek bar as media advances By setting the x property to do a little math, I get the seek bar to advance across the transit as the media plays
x: ( dceTimecode.runningTimer / dceTimecode.tcTotalTime) * scroller.width
dragTime String dragTimeChanged() the time that the slider if implemented has been dragged to. Here, it is utilized in a popup that shows when a user drags the seek bar
Text {
           id: drag_label
           text: dceTimecode.dragTime
           anchors.centerIn: parent
qsTotalTime String totalStringTimeChanged() Total time of media, formatted in HH::MM::SS - updated every second
qsCurrentTime String stringTimeChanged() The current position of the media in HH:MM::SS - updated every second
stringPlaybackSpeed string sPlaybackSpeedChanged() Playback speed in string format
playbackSpeed int playbackSpeedChanged() Playback Speed in integer format


Signals not related to specific properties, but internal functions of the class itself

Signal Params Description
seekToTime(QString) String This signal is emitted when the dragging stops on the seek bar and the time to jump to in the stream is calculated. The string contains the time to jump to in milliseconds. This signal is normally connected to the dce function setMediaPosition(QString)



void getLiveTVPlaylist(')
Params Description EX
No Params Calling this function will tell the router to populate the live tv playlist and return it to the playlist element. Calling it when no tv is playing has no result Component.onCompleted:manager.getLiveTVPlaylist()

void saveScreenshot(int attribute_number)
Params Description Example
int - The Attribute number of the attribute you want to associate with the screenshot.
It is provided in the screenshotAttributes listmodel that is prepared when grabbing a screeshot

void cleanupScreenie(')
Params Description Output
None Destroys the last screenshot and empties the model. Depreciated and will be made automatic
void resendCode(int parentDevice, int commandNumber)
Params Description Output
parentDevice - int - device number of the parent

commandNumber- int - the number of the command you wish to resend

Resend and av control code. This function should be utilized within the device_commands model. The parameters are attributes of said mdel
