As the world continues its steady march towards ubiquitous computing, almost everything from airplanes to toasters is being powered by embedded software. In fact, technology is so pervasive, we take connected homes, advanced medical equipment, and self-driving cars almost for granted. However, many of us who work in the industry have some misgivings about what […]

Have you ever noticed code highlighting disappearing in Qt Creator for some projects, without any apparent reason? Can’t get Ctrl+Click to work on any class name or function name anymore? Maybe you have ignored it at first, got used to it, and decided it’s just one of those things that just “happen sometimes”; or maybe […]
There are many big challenges that face software development today, such as developing for cybersecurity, creating a code of professional ethics, and maintaining data privacy. In this downloadable magazine, we hear from pundits with honest insights into these deep questions about the direction the industry is heading.
Task 1 View Task 1 Proxy types can be tricky. If we got a QChar (or a reference to a QChar) by accessing a character in a QString with the operator as most people would expect to, the automatic type deduction requested by auto current = hello[i] would deduce that current is of type QChar. […]
At Qt World Summit in 2019, KDAB offered five Introductory courses (one was given by our partner, froglogic), and three advanced classes., as follows: Introductory Course descriptions Introduction to Qt 3D Studio, trainer: Nuno Pinheiro This training introduces designers and developers to 3D content workflows and concepts, giving them a solid grounding in creating content […]
While the concept of multithreading may be straightforward, code with threads is responsible for some wicked bugs, which can be nearly impossible to reproduce or track down. This makes writing bullet-proof code using threads a tall order. Let’s look a little deeper into why that is. First, you need better than average knowledge about the […]
Continuing our blog series about KDToolBox, this time we will discuss UiWatchDog, a keepalive monitor for the GUI thread. Alive? A fundamental rule when writing applications in event-driven UI frameworks such as Qt is: do not ever block the GUI thread! The GUI thread is also usually called the main thread of the application — […]
Back in February we wrote about our work to add ‘MacOs touch bar‘ support to Qt. Between then and now, support has been added in QtCreator: However, the changes have not been integrated upstream in Qt, which means there is still no easy way to add support to your own applications. KDAB is happy to […]
Software developers like tools, and in particular tools that make them more productive. So in this blog post, I am going to share with you some of the experiences some of us here at KDAB have had using Visual Studio Code for Qt development. Motivation The first question you want to ask is probably, “Why […]
Today, we see more and more self-guided and remote learning via videos online. To that end, we have been working for more than 6 months now to capture our regular Qt/QML Introduction training on video.
