Unable To Use Accelerometer Anymore

Hi evryone, I used the code below and it works BEFORE the GOLD release.


void SensorTest::prepareAccelerometer()
    accSensor = new QAccelerometer(this);

void SensorTest::accReadingChanged() //THIS FUNCTION IS NO LONGER CALLED ANYMORE


            double x=double(accReading->x());
            double y=double(accReading->y());
            double z=double(accReading->z());

            double threshold = abs(x+y+z-lastX-lastY-lastZ)*100;

            lastX = x;
            lastY = y;
            lastZ = z;



I connect the readingChanged() SIGNAL to accReadingChanged SLOT.


It works before the GOLD SDK, now the accReadingChanged isnt called anymore.

Please do help.


Any thoughts on this problem?


Thank you

Re: Unable To Use Accelerometer Anymore

On My DevAlpha A (Gold release), Accelerometer is not working too. When running SensorDemo no data from accelerometer is available.
