An STL Template Experiment

Posted 12-18-2012 at 06:05 PM by rainbowsally

Today's features:
  • Getting an address of an iterator from stl.
  • Creating a foreach() macro.
  • A couple of ways to work around unwanted C++ compiler warnings.

STL is a freaking nighmare to trace in a debugger so it's not too easy to tell what goes on in them but one thing became quite clear and that is that iterators are generic pointer types internally, which makes sense since STL needs to deal with so many different types.

Here's a little test to play with to show how...

Tooling Up. ui-tool (QT4 ui file utilites)

Posted 12-15-2012 at 11:16 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 06-10-2013 at 05:17 PM by rainbowsally (bullet list not showing correctly + typo fix + parag alignment)

UPDATE: (2013-06-10) There's a stand-alone version of the uitool here.

It's part of the next libLQ-qt/mc2 project but that lib is not ready to fly yet.

Note: This is now part of the libLQ-qt download, but it's been renamed lq-uitool. It builds in the tools folder and should install automatically if all goes well.

ui-tools implementation (ui-tools.cpp)

The following changes are in the code below, but are listed in case you already have the file and want to fix it yourself (and see the context of the problem).

Changelog Dec 15 2012 (second prob)
"Unknown error" msg issued when it's not an error.

Here's the fix. Whenever we call
  ok = find_slots(...);
we need to return 'true' without acting on the return values but not return 'false'...

Generic QT Signal/Slot --or-- Using Dummy Custom Widget in Designer -- No Plugin Req'd

Posted 12-13-2012 at 02:52 PM by rainbowsally

[This is FUN!! It works. What a freaking trip. :-)]

The previous entry on using Old Style callbacks wasn't much of a hit. Ooooooohhhh... it's a hit alright.

But here it is in it's second incarnation cleaned up a bit though it needs a bit more simplification due to the number of elements that are involved and where they need to go. But this is cool.

Today's Features
  • Using a custom widget in Designer without making the plugin.
  • Using the "Old

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.
