Doubts regarding QT API usuage?

Hi,

 

I want to know whether all the modules of QT are supported or not?

 

 

As i described in my previous posts,as i was using QImage ,QImage belongs QTGUI modules  right?But in Blackberry QT modules,they have specified of only QTCore ,network ,SQL and XML.

 

Will they update in blackberry API docs?

Re: Doubts regarding QT API usuage?

You can have a Qt application or a cascades application.

 

If you are using bb::cascades::Application, you use the cascades UI objects instead of the Qt UI objects, and you can use anything documented here:

https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/

When new releases of cascades are issued, the documentation will be updated.

See also: https://developer.blackberry.com/native/beta/documentation/

 

You can have a pure Qt application instead of Cascades if that is appropriate for your project.
You give up the deep integration with the OS and the signature Blackberry experience provided through Cascades.

What do you mean by Qt modules?

You can see what is currently supported in the links I supplied.

For roadmap questions, look for official channels.

 

Are you asking if Qt applications will be supported in future?

Re: Doubts regarding QT API usuage?

Two good places to monitor for new information:

The main developer page https://developer.blackberry.com/
and the twitter feed: http://twitter.com/BlackBerryDev

For using QImage to construct items for rendering, see:

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Cascades-Development/Draw-a-circle-using-Qpainter-is-it-suppo...

 

Expect functionality to be added to cascades, but don't expect a direct map to Qt UI objects.
