9780131240728: C++ GUI Programming with Qt 3

Many companies are facing problems with Windows development using traditional Windows tools such as Visual Studio. When they write applications, even just "single platform" applications for Windows, they often have to account for differences between different Windows versions, which adds hassle to development and maintenance. Qt works no matter the Windows versions. This book provides all the information needed to become a professional Qt developer. The book also covers cross platform GUI programming--programmers can be working on Windows, Linux, or Mac and the book will work for them. This is useful for commercial companies that use Qt, and for companies that are evaluating Qt. It will also be valuable to the vast number of open source developers who already use Qt since no other book of comparable quality or comprehensiveness is available. This book teaches Qt's idioms and how to use Qt to best advantage. The book is organized into four parts. The first part introduces the C++ necessary for the effective use of Qt. The second part covers basic Qt, starting with some very short examples, and quickly building up to a complete Graphical User Interface program. The second part provides coverage of key Qt features including signals. The third and fourth parts cover more advanced and specialized material.

From the Back Cover:

"...not only the best book on Qt I have ever seen, but also the best book presenting any programming framework. Every sentence appears to be carefully worded, and every chapter has a sound concept, and so does the work as a whole." --Matthias Ettrich, Trolltech's lead developer, founder of the KDE project

"The 'Tao of Qt'.... The Qt system is a beautiful example of object oriented design, and the authors take advantage of this.... The authors have done an excellent job of presenting the subject in an interesting and engaging way...." --Ron McCarty, Instructor and Chair of the Department of Computer Science, Penn State Erie, The Behrend College

The first official Trolltech guide to Qt 3.2 programming!

Straight from Trolltech, this book covers all you need to build industrial-strength applications with Qt 3.2.x and C++--applications that run natively on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, and embedded Linux with no source code changes! The book teaches solid Qt programming practices; it is not a rehash of the documentation.

  • Build powerful C++ GUI applications quickly and easily
  • Design dialogs and main windows visually and in code
  • Learn Qt's innovative typesafe signals and slots mechanism
  • Use layouts to create forms that automatically size and scale
  • Create custom signals, slots, events, and controls
  • Program the ''Qt way'' with techniques for Qt 3.2 that'll work with Qt 4
  • Code applications with menus, toolbars, dialogs, and drag and drop
  • Utilize 2D and 3D graphics, multithreading, and networking
  • Write database and XML applications
  • Internationalize to reach foreign markets
  • Exploit platform-specific-features like ActiveX

Already using Qt or just starting out? Evaluating Qt or managing it? Building open source applications--or commercial applications? Want to develop for Windows without buying an expensive compiler? Whatever your goal, this is the only book you need!
