I'm quite new on Qt platform, sorry if I ask for some trivial questions (you can kick me to HOWTO if I've missed some ;)
I need to create a system to permit the creation of plug-in in our application, which is obviously written with Qt.
The requirement are simple:
- Plug-in should live in another process (for security/stability reasons)
- Plug-in should have access to at least a QWidget (I guess that behind, it will be a class derived from QWidget) to plys with (add it own widgets, draw inside, etc.)
On other words, I would need a kind of screen server (in my app) and a screen client (in my plug-in). The last one should be perfectly transparent for the plug-in.
There is an old demonstration wrote by "Marius" (I guess a kind of Qt God?) which do exactly what I need here: "A Lighthouse with Windows":http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2010/02/10/a-lighthouse-with-windows/ but the code is quite old (2010/02) and does not compile at all on Qt 4.8 version.
It seems that all this is working on Linux, but I can't choose the platform: it's Windows.
Any suggestion are welcome!
Thanks a lot
