Thanks Jones, QTimer.singleShot is a nice solution if you have nothing 
to do after this single line of code, or the right after consecutive 
code will be executed before the callback wrapped within singleShot 
method, which sometimes is not wanted.

IMHO, qWait, qSleep and other functions, should be exposed somewhere at 
QTimer's reference page, such that, people like me can easily discover 
them, since normally the Qt users (not core Qt library developers) 
probably would not dive into QTest module to see if something is useful.
