Developing Qt Quick Applications
- Creating Qt Quick Projects
You can use wizards to create Qt Quick projects.
- Design Views
You can use several different editors and views in the Design mode to develop Qt Quick applications.
- Creating UIs
Qt Quick enables you to build UIs around the behavior of components and how they connect with one another. You create components using Qt Quick and QML types that are available in the Design mode, manage their relationships, and specify their properties.
- Adding Dynamics
You can animate the properties of UI components and create connections between them to enable them to communicate with each other.
- Editing 3D Scenes
You can use the 3D editor in the Design mode to edit files you created using 3D graphics applications and stored in one of the supported formats. You cannot create 3D models or other assets in the editor, but you can import the assets you need and work with them to create scenes and states, as well as the transitions between them.
For more information, watch a video that shows how to perform the tasks above:
- Browsing ISO 7000 Icons
You can add ISO 7000 icons from a library delivered with Qt Creator to UIs and change their color.
- Using QML Modules with Plugins
QML modules may use plugins to expose components defined in C++ to QML applications. Qt Creator cannot load the plugins to determine the details of the contained components, and therefore, the modules must provide extra type information for code completion and the semantic checks to work correctly.
- Converting UI Projects to Applications
Qt Quick UI projects (.qmlproject) are useful for creating user interfaces. To use them for application development, you have to convert them to Qt Quick Application projects that contain .pro, .cpp, and .qrc files.
- Exporting Components
UI files (.ui.qml) can be exported to JSON metadata format and PNG assets.
