Detailed Description

A typical Modbus response can looks like this:

QModbusResponse response(QModbusResponse::ReadCoils, QByteArray::fromHex("02cd01"));

Note: When using the constructor taking the QByteArray, please make sure to convert the containing data to big-endian byte order before creating the request.

The same response can be created like this, if the values are known at compile time:

quint8 payloadInBytes = 2, outputHigh = 0xcd, outputLow = 0x01;
QModbusResponse response(QModbusResponse::ReadCoils, payloadInBytes, outputHigh, outputLow);

Member Type Documentation

[alias] QModbusResponse::CalcFuncPtr

This is a type alias for decltype.

Typedef for a pointer to a custom calculator function with the same signature as QModbusResponse::calculateDataSize.

Member Function Documentation

template <typename Args> QModbusResponse::QModbusResponse(QModbusPdu::FunctionCode code, Args... data)

Constructs a QModbusResponse with function code set to code and payload set to data. The data is converted and stored in big-endian byte order.

Note: Usage is limited quint8 and quint16 only. This is because QDataStream stream operators will not only append raw data, but also e.g. size, count, etc. for complex types.

QModbusResponse::QModbusResponse(QModbusPdu::FunctionCode code, const QByteArray &data = QByteArray())

Constructs a QModbusResponse with function code set to code and payload set to data. The data is expected to be stored in big-endian byte order already.

QModbusResponse::QModbusResponse(const QModbusPdu &pdu)

Constructs a copy of pdu.


Constructs an invalid QModbusResponse.

[static] int QModbusResponse::calculateDataSize(const QModbusResponse &response)

Calculates the expected data size for response, based on the response's function code and data. Returns the full size of the response's data part; -1 if the size could not be properly calculated.

See also minimumDataSize and registerDataSizeCalculator.

[static] int QModbusResponse::minimumDataSize(const QModbusResponse &response)

Returns the expected minimum data size for response based on the response's function code; -1 if the function code is not known.

[static] void QModbusResponse::registerDataSizeCalculator(QModbusPdu::FunctionCode fc, QModbusResponse::CalcFuncPtr calculator)

This function registers a user-defined implementation to calculate the response data size for function code fc. It can be used to extend or override the implementation inside QModbusResponse::calculateDataSize().

The CalcFuncPtr is a typedef for a pointer to a custom calculator function with the following signature:

int myCalculateDataSize(const QModbusResponse &pdu);

Related Non-Members

QDataStream &operator>>(QDataStream &stream, QModbusResponse &pdu)

Reads a pdu from the stream and returns a reference to the stream.

Note: The function might fail to properly stream PDU's with function code QModbusPdu::Diagnostics or QModbusPdu::EncapsulatedInterfaceTransport because of the missing size indicator inside the PDU. In particular this may happen when the PDU is embedded into a stream that doesn't end with the diagnostic/encapsulated request itself.
