Porting Qt Symbian apps to Blackberry Playbook

Hi all,


    Is there a way to port qt symbian apps to playbook?... Not all the Qt apps given  here https://github.com/blackberry/Qt/tree/codedrop_20120109/demos   are working.  I got some errors like No  such file or directory for QCamera, QAbstractButton,QMediaPlayer....when i tried...  Anyone got the samples working in the above link,plz help me... I am a Qt symbian developer.. Now i need to port all the developed symbian projects to playbook using Qt. I didn't found much documentation for Qt on playbook... I even tried using native sdk for developing UI (OpenGL), but it is time consuming and it takes a some 40 lines of code to create a button and a messagebox for touch events.

any ideas ???

Re: Porting Qt Symbian apps to Blackberry Playbook

I am also a symbian developer. I have deployed a couple Qt widget based apps to the playbook successfully.

I have not tried any mobility classes yet. QDesktopServices doesn't seem to be working yet either...

You will likely have to deploy the mobility plugin to the bar package. See here for some tips:http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Native-SDK-for-BlackBerry-Tablet/Failed-to-load-platform-plug...

Also the trolls have put up a wiki: http://wiki.qt-project.org/QNX

I have a little example at hand - send me an email to tamhan at tamoggemon dot com and I will send it.


My apps ported over decentlx well, with the biggest eekers being that png and jpg resources can not be loaded and that excessivfe qualifiers in Symbian C++ style headers cause hickups for the compiler.
