Linux c++ equivalent to PostMessage()

I am porting a Windows MFC app to linux.

It uses the PostMessage function to place a CString message "Message" in the Windows message queue as follows :

Window->PostMessage(Message);

How do I do the same in linux? I am developing using KDevelop 2.1 and QT3.

Help much appreciated.

regards,

Gordon

You can send events to an object (widget, window, etc) using

void QApplication::postEvent(QObject *receiver, QEvent *event);

To handle events in the window, override the event() method. You will have to define a new "string message" event type.
