Qt Creator and Cascades

Hi all!

 

Is there work being done to make Qt Creator work with Cascades? I found quite an outdated build of Qt Creator on BB's github. I don't really expect the interface builder to work, but at least project management and deployment to the simulator and the device.

Re: Qt Creator and Cascades

Thanks, Oleg. This is actually what I heard of that KDAB is involved in development of the plugin. I can also see that they do some Qt Mobility work for QNX too, that would be really cool if we could use as much of the upstream Qt as possible - for example Qt Quick.

Re: Qt Creator and Cascades

Didn't know that! I will definitely try it out although I suspect that it will be against the UI guidelines for Blackberry 10 development. And from what I understand Cascades is a completely different environment and is not built on top the Qt Quick, so you can't mix the two. I would certainly want to use more of the standard Qt rather than Cascades.

Re: Qt Creator and Cascades

Yeah, Qt Quick and Cascades cannot be mixed. Currently I'm trying to reimplement some Cascades components in pure Qt Quick for my apps.

Re: Qt Creator and Cascades

It would be very interesting to see how far you get with it, provided that you publish your work Smiley Wink

Re: Qt Creator and Cascades

Just to save time... Does it work out of the box or is it in its early stages?

Re: Qt Creator and Cascades

Hi Oleg

Any progress with reimplementing Cascades components in common QT Quick?

Re: Qt Creator and Cascades

Hi, I hope to publish my first draft version during next week and will announce here. At the moment Button, TextField and Label (lol) work almost well. My next challenge will be DropDown and CheckBox.
