Hi

Where ever needed, help doc is created for e.g. : What is tag [developer.qt.nokia.com] or Points and Rank [developer.qt.nokia.com]

Also there is a DevNet Help forum [developer.qt.nokia.com]

Still if some help is lacking please point to us so we can improve it.

for starters just a set of FAQ on using the forum would be good, (the list of questions already asked by users).. that will be a good starting point. At times I’ve had to try a few things before i figured out how to do something. e.g. how to get a special character in my post, or how to add code in your post. You’ll also see so many folks posting without formatted code or without creating a link out of URLs … things like that.

Up until now I didn’t think that we would actually need something like this. I am happy to be corrected though.

I put it on my list of things to do. Maybe we can make it a joint effort by making it a wiki page?

I haven’t gotten around to it yet – I am still stuck in post-holidays chaos. Would be great if you started it and shared the link here.

Thanks!

may not be pertinent here, but
@chetankjain, in the above link, the example code block has this statement –

return app.exec& #40;& #41;;
can that be amended. :)

The Wiki help page is supposed to – guess what – help with the wiki. :-P

I’d personally prefer to have a separate page for the forum help. I started one here [developer.qt.nokia.com] that we can fledge out as we go along.

Thanks for your help!
