Qt Serial Bus

The Qt Serial Bus API provides classes and functions to access the various industrial serial buses and protocols, such as CAN, ModBus, and others.

Getting Started

To include the definitions of the module's classes and functions, use the following directive:

#include <QtSerialBus>

To link against the module, add this line to your qmake .pro file:

QT += serialbus

Logging Categories

The QtSerialBus module exports the following logging categories:

Logging Category Description
qt.canbus Enables standard logging inside the Qt CAN Bus classes
qt.canbus.plugins Enables low level logging inside the Qt CAN Bus plugin classes. To set logging for a specific plugin, use "qt.canbus.plugins.pluginname". e.g. "qt.canbus.plugins.socketcan". "qt.canbus.plugins*" affects all plugins.
qt.modbus Enables standard logging inside the Qt Modbus classes
qt.modbus.lowlevel Enables low level logging including individual packet content inside the Qt Modbus classes

Logging categories can be used to enable additional warning and debug output for QtSerialBus. More detailed information about logging can be found in QLoggingCategory.

A quick way to enable all Qt Modbus logging is to add the following line to the main() function:

QLoggingCategory::setFilterRules(QStringLiteral("qt.modbus* = true"));
