I've been playing with pyKDE and DCOP these last few days, and I must say it
is not really easy. The main problem being I haven't been able to find any
documentation (as soon as I have something working, I'll put it on the wiki).
Up to now, I've managed to implement void functions.
But either there's something I didn't understand, or the python prototype of
DCOPObject.process() should be reviewed.
Currently, the replyType and replyData are passed as arguments (as it is in
C++). Their types are respectively QCString and QByteArray.
The replyType is not a real problem, as I can set it with the setStr() method.
However, pyKDE offers very few ways to interract with a QByteArray. And since
it is passed as reference, I cannot build one from a python string.
I'd like to be able to return at least a bool, an int, a QCString or a
QCStringList. I've already tried to play with some QDataStream, etc, but
pyKDE doesn't support the stream operators << and >>, and I couldn't obtain
Perhaps the process() method should return a tuple of (bool, [something]) ? I
don't know if it would be perfect, though.
Does anyone know how to solve this ?
