Get objectName of item touched in slot method



Is it possible to get the item's objectName that the slot is linked to when the slot method (in my case onTabClicked) is invoked?

My connection to the slot looks like this:


QObject::connect(tabImage, SIGNAL(touch(bb::cascades::TouchEvent *)), this,
SLOT(onTabClicked(bb::cascades::TouchEvent *)));


I have a few images generated by the same method and inserted into a container via C++ and all will invoke the onTabClicked method when touched. I would like to set the visibility of another image in the same container but for this I will need a objectName to identify the image i want to manipulate.


Hope i made my question clear enough, Thanks for any help

Re: Get objectName of item touched in slot method

Found a solution in the Kakel example

ImageView* senderImage = dynamic_cast<ImageView*>(sender());
