Detailed Description

The Qt Script module only provides core scripting facilities; the Qt Script Tools module provides additional Qt Script-related components that application developers may find useful.

This module is mainly provided for backwards compatibility reasons with Qt 4.x and not being actively developed any further. For new code please consider using the QJSEngine, etc. classes in the Qt Qml module instead.

To include the definitions of the module's classes, use the following directive:

#include <QtScript>

To link against the module, add this line to your qmake .pro file:

QT += script

For detailed information on how to make your application scriptable with Qt Script, see Making Applications Scriptable.
