KDevelop & C++


I'm doing my 1st GUI Application using Qt. And I have Tons Of Questions.
1. Where can i get A Qt help ?
2. Is this foum the right place to ask ?
3. I opened www.kdevelop.org/tutorials and found lots of useful info but how can I download and save a whole page with it links included ??
4. for visual application is Qt the only solution ?

My Kdevelop Help is very very bad compared to MSDN Visual studio . Is there any way to make it better , Download application install documents anything would help .

Thanks alot

Hi,

1.: The QT Documentation is quite comprehensive. Additionally there are books and tutorials for quite a few things on the web.

2.: Don't know

3.: If you use konqueror, install kdeaddons. That will enable an extra toolbar with a function that allows you to save a page with images included. If you want to mirror a webpage there is the commandline tool wget. It allows mirroring with -m. Make sure you limit recursions and some of the other options or you'll end up with a mirror of the internet on your harddisk

4.: QT is quite nice to program with. IMHO it's the nicest C++ class library I came across yet. There are also tools that allow more rapid gui programming based on gtk. If you want really rapid gui development in a style similar to VB on windows, try PyQt. You can program plattform independant QT based qui apps with python. Of course there is also Kylix wich is free for noncommercial use. It also uses QT. There is an annoying popup though.

The best way to improve the kdevelop documentation is to write manuals about stuff you found out and pass them on to the kdevelop developers. I'm sure they'd appreciate your efforts.

If you need help on topics you can't figure out otherwise, there are Mailinglists for developers using QT. If you develop KDE apps you can subscribe to kde-devel. The folks there are usually eager to help you if your question isn't answered in the first section of some obvious FAQ.

Hope that helped a little.

DAZK

True, fltk is an option if you love to use function pointers for callbacks. I disagree that it is easy to use. On the contrary, I tried to learn it to develop for my agenda organizer and I found it rather hard because it is rather different than most of the gui libs out there. Additionally I don't like the looks of fltk apps. The only advantage I see is that it is really lightweight and multiplattform.
