When editing a connect() the NEW Qt5 Style, the autocompletion does not limit the signal element to reals signals. Any member method is proposed... not just signals. The same holds for slots. This is not helpful for the novice user.
E.g. when entering:
every method of QTextDocument is shown... not just the signals.
But this is the case for the OLD connect style:
only the signals are offered.
So: The old way is very convinient and less error prone..
As a side note:
The new QT5 style does compile even for stupid things like:
At runtime you will have:
which is not very informative .... which signal was not found, where is this wrong connect ???
For the OLD style you get for
an runtime warning:
With a source line number and you can click on the warning and you will be at the right spot !!
This looks error prone to me..
