Cross Platform Technique Assist in App Development

Encouraging developers to develop software applications for embedded devices, desktop/laptops and handheld devices, Qt Quick user interface development and cross platform framework supports all major operating systems. This is a common approach to deal with the most common applications so as to crumble it into smaller units. It results in better productive process and the configuration of the application as a whole. The capabilities of QT Quick speed up the development of graphic-rich user interfaces and reusable UI controls depend on the newer versions of QT Quick and other features that lower down the hard work done by software developers while writing the code.

qt quick

Qt Quick is a bundle of technologies especially designed to assist programmers in creating modern and fluid user interfaces that are quite popular on mobiles, tablets, set-top boxes and other portable devices. It portrays a rich collection of user interface elements, a declarative language describing UI and a language runtime. In order to integrate such high level features with classic apps, you need a collection of C++ APIs. QML is a high level scripting language. It facilitates, more often the elements and leverage the power of Qt libraries to ease out the commands to be used and perform spontaneous functions. Everything is possible with this language! The QML element generally has properties that efficiently define any functionality. Construction of user interfaces by importing these features and this is one of the reasons that make Qt Quick and QML stand out of the crowd.

You must be wondering till now that why is even QML being mentioned over here? Also known as Qt Meta Language or Qt Modeling Language is a JavaScript based declarative language specifically for interface-centric applications. It has been specifically crafted for fluid animations, touch input and user experiences are very important. The elements in QML are imported with QT and are a sophisticated set of building blocks. All the elements can be integrated for component building. These components range from a complex app to a simple button or a slider. Basically, QML offers two paradigms for serving this approach – loader and component elements. Both of them have alike functionalities. What is different is the way they work.

Overview of New Features in Qt Quick

In the newer versions, much new functionality has been added. Many of them were already present in the Desktop Component project and now they are officially the part of Qt Quick. Following are a few new controls listed below:

  • Layouts
  • Controls
  • Views
  • Keyboard Focus
  • Presenting Data with views
  • Structuring Data with Models
  • Mouse events

Important Concepts in Qt Quick

You get what you need with Qt Quick in order to create a rich application with dynamic and fluid user interface. Enabling user interface to be crafted around the nature of components of user interface and the way they connect with each other. Transition and Animation effects are a top notch idea in Qt Quick and the visual effects can be inserted through special components for beautiful effects.
