A Stand Alone executable QT MsgBox with Stays On Top attribute

Posted 12-13-2012 at 08:59 AM by rainbowsally

A Stand Alone executable QT MsgBox with Stays On Top attribute.

Today's Features:
  • A non-modal qt based dialog/message box that STAYS ON TOP of the window stack.
  • How to center a window on the screen.
  • Using the short optargs to parse the options.

The msgbox utility in the 'extras' folders of the mc2 d/load (see link below) uses xmessage for the display widget. That makes it independent of QT so it can run on any computer that has the X windowing system.

"Old Style" Callbacks In QT4 (commandline tester)

Posted 12-12-2012 at 09:25 AM by rainbowsally

What would be involved in creating a generic callback that we could control ourselves, rather than using QTs rather complicated system?

How about a windows style system with a windproc to handle messages?

QT's API is better than windows in that you can see how things are done, especially if you have the C++ sources. It's as visible as you can stand! ;-)

The Windows API is better than QT's only in one respect, and that is that the type safety is somewhat...

QT4 dialog & using MC2 EXT_ALL target examples

Posted 12-11-2012 at 01:45 AM by rainbowsally

The sources are in the qt4 demos and you can use the pro file if you like, but here's example of how to use the EXT_ALL target in an mc2.def.

This also applies to makefiles in general, but it's much easier to work through an intermediate system such as mc2.

It is also a great demo for using dialogs, and you can choose native or QT built-in styles for them, which makes a big difference for the file and color selection dialogs.

I particularly like the file

A stand-alone TextDisplay widget in QT

A stand-alone TextDisplay widget in QT

Skip this part if you know about mc2 (makefile creator, the second generation)

--------------------
Before we start, if you haven't tried mc2 yet, don't be put off by the installation location. The Computer Mad Science Team uses 4 levels of installation for various kinds of apps.

The most basic type is the HOME/bin sandbox. This allows instantly running applications because that folder is usually in the...

new mc2 - creates makefiles from a source tree

Posted 12-08-2012 at 12:17 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 08-06-2014 at 11:02 AM by rainbowsally

Fixed a bug in mc2 noticed here.
Where It Crashed: http://rainbowsally.org/rainbowsally....4.1-rs.tar.xz

The large number of files listed in the mc2.def was overloading the parser so Parser (and the string list file and pipe reader) got a heftier buffer.

The file above is a java application. Not a great one but it shows one way mc2 can even generate makefiles for java applications using EXT_ALL as a target and some other tricks.
