  • connect: Connection refused written

  • connect: Connection refused

  • virtual void QtObserver::HandleMissedHeartBeat() Heartbeat is late!

    text: dataEngine.engineRPM.value    // OK

Text {
    text: dataEngine.enginRPM.value     // Not OK, misspelled signal name

Signal value is not possible to set

“Cannot assign to read-only property “value””

Verify that the signals Signal Type is configured as PRODUCER.

    onPressed: dataEngine.requestStop.value = true      // Recommended
    onReleased: dataEngine.requestStop.setValue(false)  // Not recommended
