UUID/GUID generation

Hello BB NDK Devs,

 

Is there a system UUID generator in BB NDK or should one just use boost's?

 

Thanks you!

Hi, I think, there is no system genrated UUID/GUID process. It can be generated using webbrosers. There are plenty of online UUID Generators.

Re: UUID/GUID generation

Hi Guys, in addition to vkjm's comment..

 

there is QUuid provided by the QTCore that is available to use in C++ or Cascades projects.

 

For projects where C or QT is not being used, boost and other available libraries on the web would make good replacements.

 

Cheers

Selom

Thank you both for confirming, that's what I thought but just wanted to make sure that I hadn't missed something. As a side note, integrating Boost 1.49.0 was very smooth with the NDK!
