Here at KDAB, we recently published a library called KDBindings, which aims to reimplement both Qt signals and slots and data binding in pure C++17. To get an introduction to the KDBindings implementation of signals and slots, I recommend that you take a look at the KDBindings Getting Started Guide. It will give you an […]

Our engineers and designers share cutting-edge technology news and ideas with regard to Qt, QML, Qt on Android, OpenGL, Qt 3D, Vulkan, Scalable UIs and more embedded, mobile and desktop-related topics.
We have just released version 2.1.0 of our KDReports developer tool product. KDReports generates printable and exportable reports from code and from XML descriptions. Developers write the code that integrates KDReports with the rest of the application. External designers or marketing and sales staff can be tasked with creating the report structure, or its appearance. […]
All Qt developers should know about signals, slots, and properties. Those of you who have used QML will know that property bindings are super useful and cool. Bindings allow us to write more reactive and declarative style code. However, they are only available within QML, which means there are no compile time errors when you […]
In a well-designed QML application, the UI is built using re-usable components, while the data and logic live in C++ based components we call controllers here. The QML part of the application uses these components (that themselves may be written in QML or C++) to build up the user interface and connect these components with […]
Version 1.3.0 of the KDE Heaptrack project was just released by KDAB’s Milian Wolff. Heaptrack is a heap memory profiler on Linux-based operating systems. It can help you find hotspots that need to be optimized for reducing memory usage, memory leaks, allocation hotspots, and temporary allocations. Included in this release is a special new feature […]
Another day, another small addition to KDToolBox, KDAB’s collection of miscellaneous useful C++ classes and stuff. In this post, we’re going to talk about KDFunctionalSortFilterProxyModel, which is a convenience subclass of QSortFilterProxyModel. What’s a proxy model to begin with, and what’s QSortFilterProxyModel? Well, that explanation requires a bigger space than what I have in this […]
We just released KDDockWidgets 1.5.0! What is KDDockWidgets? KDDockWidgets is a development framework for custom-tailored docking systems in Qt, to use when you need advanced docking that is not supported by QDockWidgets. It was created by Sergio Martins as a time-saving alternative to QDockWidgets. The ease-of-use of KDDockWidgets can save you lots of frustration […]
Qt provides a rich set of high-quality, cross-platform APIs, but can't cover every possible use case. KDE has created code to fill these gaps in its many projects, sharing these libraries as KDE Frameworks.
This 3-part blog series shows in detail how to get up to speed with a Qt project using Visual Studio Code. Part 3 further integrates Qt into VS Code with syntax highlighting, Qt Creator quick switch and more…
GammaRay 2.11.3 has been released! GammaRay is KDAB’s software introspection tool for Qt applications. Leveraging the QObject introspection mechanism, it allows you to observe and manipulate your application at runtime. This works both locally on your workstation and remotely on an embedded target. Version 2.11.3 will be the last in the 2.11 series. After this […]
