More Signal/Slots grief + SystemDialog


4 hrs later....


Given the content at end of thread:




perhaps someone from BB can fix the 'documentation' at




so the exaple code might actually work.


In particular the C++ code as copied below on the page is just wrong.


void App::showDialog() {
    // Set up the dialog with a title, some body text, 
    // and an custom button. Don't forget to set it to
    // dismiss the dialog automatically.
    // Label the two standard buttons with specific text.
    // Add a custom button for more stuff.
    dialog = new SystemDialog("I accept", "More stuff", "I decline");
    dialog->setTitle("My Dialog Title");
    dialog->setBody("This is the body of my dialog. " +
         "I can put valuable information in here.");
    // Connect your functions to handle the predefined signals for the buttons.
    // The slot will check the SystemUiResult to see which button was clicked. 
    bool success = QObject::connect(dialog,
            SIGNAL (finished(bb::system:Smiley FrustratedystemUiResult::Type value))
            SLOT (onDialogFinished()));
    // Indicate that the variable success isn't used in the rest of the app,
    // to prevent a compiler warning
    // Now show the dialog in your UI
