Book Description

With the growing need to develop GUIs for multiple targets and multiple screens, improving the visual quality of your application has become pivotal in helping it stand out from your competitors. With its cross-platform ability and the latest UI paradigms, Qt makes it possible to build intuitive, interactive, and user-friendly UIs for your applications.

The third edition of Qt 6 C++ GUI Programming Cookbook teaches you how to develop functional and appealing UIs using the latest version of Qt 6 and C++. This book will help you learn a variety of topics such as GUI customization and animation, graphics rendering, and implementing Google Maps. You’ll also be taken through advanced concepts such as asynchronous programming, event handling using signals and slots, network programming, and other aspects to optimize your application.

By the end of this Qt book, you’ll have the confidence you need to design and customize GUI applications that meet your clients’ expectations and have an understanding of best-practice solutions to common problems during the app development process.

What you will learn

  • Animate GUI elements using Qt 6’s built-in animation system
  • Draw vector shapes and bitmap images using Qt 6’s powerful rendering system
  • Implement an industry-standard OpenGL library in your project
  • Build a mobile app that supports touch events and export it into devices
  • Parse and extract data from an XML file and present it on your GUI
  • Interact with web content by calling JavaScript functions from C++
  • Access MySQL and SQLite databases to retrieve data and display it on your GUI
