Foundations of Qt Development

Foundations of Qt Development

Foundations of Qt Development is based on Qt 4.2, and is aimed at C++ programmers who want to become proficient using this excellent toolkit to create graphical applications that can be ported to all major platforms.

This book by Johan Thelin, a Qt Quarterly contributor and author of the Independent Qt Tutorial, aims to cover all of Qt from an independent perspective. This approach allows the author to explore the use of CMake as an alternative build tool and give impartial summaries of important third-party projects based on Qt.

As well as covering the usual GUI-related topics, the book sets aside space to take an in-depth look at non-visual subjects that other publications tend to gloss over, such as networking, threading and unit testing.

Some topics covered by the book:

  • Widgets and Layouts
  • The Main Window
  • The Model-View Framework
  • Drawing and Printing
  • Internationalization and Localization
  • Plugins
