Right from the start, unu wanted to add a stylish, first-class embedded high-res display to their second generation electric scooter. Like many top-class engineering companies, unu didn’t have in-house expertise for building a modern UI, so they decided to partner with KDAB to build a modern UI based on Qt. In this video you learn […]
KDDockWidgets is an effort by KDAB to provide an advanced docking system for Qt. Throughout the years KDAB has contributed and funded QDockWidget development. Sadly, this wasn’t without pain: each change took many days to implement and an equal amount of time to fix regressions. QDockWidget mixes GUI code with logic/state in a spaghetti manner, […]
As mentioned in the previous article in this series, Qt 3D 5.14 is bringing a number of changes aimed at improving performance. Most people familiar with Qt 3D will know that the API is designed around the construction of a scene graph, creating a hierarchy of Entities, each of them having having any number of […]
Qt 3D makes heavy use of threads, as a way to spread work across CPU cores and maximize throughput, but also to minimize the chances of blocking the main thread. Though nice on paper, the last case eventually leads to added complexity. Sometimes, there are just one too many threads. In the past, we’ve been […]

With this blog post we are going to kickstart our brand new blog series about KDToolBox. The first class we’re exploring is KDTableToListProxyModel, a table-to-list proxy model. The main use case for KDTableToListProxyModel is exposing tabular models to Qt Quick. Qt Quick has a certain number of “view” elements that only support list models: for […]
