"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.

QT giac (qtgiac) and new lib lq/mc2 v. 3.03

Posted 06-05-2012 at 08:58 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 08-06-2014 at 11:06 AM by rainbowsally

[If you have had trouble compiling qtgiac, this might help.]

http://rainbowsally.org/rainbowsally...giac-rs.tar.gz (about 2 megs)

This qtgiac build currently works with the following version of libLQ/mc2 (and also with later builds of the mc2 v. 2x). If you need this to work for sure AND you want to mess with the makefiles, get this version of the libLQ/mc2 as well to make the job a little easier.
