Qt State Machine

The State Machine framework provides classes for creating and executing state graphs.

Using the Module

QML API

The QML types of the module are available through the QtQml.StateMachine import. To use the types, add the following import statement to your .qml file:

import QtQml.StateMachine

C++ API

Using a Qt module requires linking against the module library, either directly or through other dependencies. Several build tools have dedicated support for this, including CMake and qmake.

Building with CMake

Use the find_package() command to locate the needed module component in the Qt6 package:

find_package(Qt6 REQUIRED COMPONENTS StateMachine)
target_link_libraries(mytarget PRIVATE Qt6::StateMachine)

For more details, see the Build with CMake overview.

Building with qmake

Use the find_package() command to locate the needed module component in the Qt6 package:

find_package(Qt6 REQUIRED COMPONENTS statemachine)
target_link_libraries(mytarget PRIVATE Qt6::statemachine)

For more details, see the Build with CMake overview.
