QML slot and signal emitted from C++

The more I read the documentation the examples the more confused I get.


At this point I have given up trying to connect a QML signal with a C++ slot as the connect always fails (for some reason)  and in fact program hangs with SIGABRT. Though,  I thought I had eventually found a way to get address of Control ( Page or Container) where signal is defined.


However, my current problem is probably the same issue anyways. I want to send information to a number of QML Controls from C++. Thought of using onTouch for these controls even though not sure how to pass isDown event.

Could create another custom slot.


But either way I'm back to how do I identify these controls so that I can emit the signals

  control1.onTouch(),    control2.onTouch(), etc


Am I back to trying to find the child object "Control1" and   using  "emit control1obj->onTouch();"


Is there an equivalent to "this" in QML?
