Learn QT 5

Overview of this book

Qt is a mature and powerful framework for delivering sophisticated applications across a multitude of platforms. It has a rich history in the Linux world, is widely used in embedded devices, and has made great strides in the Mobile arena over the past few years. However, in the Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X worlds, the dominance of C#/.NET and Objective-C/Cocoa means that Qt is often overlooked. This book demonstrates the power and flexibility of the Qt framework for desktop application development and shows how you can write your application once and deploy it to multiple operating systems. Build a complete real-world line of business (LOB) solution from scratch, with distinct C++ library, QML user interface, and QtTest-driven unit-test projects. This is a suite of essential techniques that cover the core requirements for most LOB applications and will empower you to progress from a blank page to shipped application.

Custom approach

The custom approach we will take still applies the same basic concepts we've just discussed. At the heart of it, we will still have a test class that contains a suite of unit test methods to be executed. All we will do is supplement this with some additional boilerplate code to allow us to easily accommodate multiple test classes and pipe the output to files rather than the console.

Let’s begin by adding a new class TestSuite to cm-tests in the source folder:


#include <QObject> #include <QString> #include <QtTest/QtTest>
#include <vector>
namespace cm {
class TestSuite : public QObject { Q_OBJECT public: explicit TestSuite(const QString& _testName = ""); virtual ~TestSuite();
QString testName; static std::vector<TestSuite*>& testList...
