Time notifications

Hi all, is it possible to get system notification that current time has changed?

I'm developing headless application and I need to check current time, therefore my app won't work if the current time will change. Of course I can check current time each minute to monitor current time changes, but it is not a good way for power consumption.

And one more question, is it possible to subscribe for specific time notification, I mean instead of using QTimer?

Re: Time notifications

No, time-based triggers are supposed to be on their way but it's not been announced when they will appear.


The best you can do at the moment is to run a long-running headless app or set up calendar events (bit rubbish this option).
