Questions about QML for new developer

 

We are looking into using QML to develop a UI for a linux embedded display unit and I had a few related questions.

1. Are there any books or other resources that I can get my hands on that lay out QML well?
2. How can I create my own QML widgets?
3. How would one begin to approach GPS mapping?

Thanks,

Kyle

I don’t know any book yet about Qt 4.7. Let’s see if any other colleague can help on this. A starting point is the official documentation [doc.trolltech.com], not ideal yet IMO but enough to begin.

There is this topic [doc.trolltech.com] in the docs about creating custom QML elements. For more complext widgets, probably you’ll need to write parts of it in C++, then check this tutorial [doc.trolltech.com].

Take a look at Qt-Mobility Location API, docs here [doc.qt.nokia.com].

I hope these answers help you somehow. I don’t know how familiar you are with Qt and its docs, so maybe I wrote a lot of ‘already known’ stuff.

KDAB is offering two trainings about “Qt Quick for C++ Developers” in the near future, assuming you have some C++ skills already, this may be what you need. The dates are January 25-26, 2011, in Berlin, Germany, and February 08-09 in Houston, Texas, USA. Please see the full schedule [kdab.com]. We can also run this training (even customized to your needs) onsite for your team at pretty much any time.

There was a great presentation on mixing C++ and QML at the DevDays [qt.nokia.com]. Maybe you can still make it to the San Francisco event?

The presentations were recorded, I have no idea when those videos will become available though.
