Absolutely new to Qt..need help with QWT library structure

  • Hi,

    This may sound a bit silly, but I need to understand the structure of the QWT library and document the same for my work. I am very new to -QT- Qt and need help with almost everything. Could someone please suggest a starting point for me, I am getting lost in such a lot of information all around. I do have the basic C++ programming concepts but unfortunately have never worked in -QT- Qt. Please suggest how should I go about it , according to you..


  • Welcome to this forum

    Probably the best ist to start with the examples in order to see what is possible.
    For Qt there is the the "tutorial ":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/doc/qt-4.7/gettingstartedqt.html
    For QWT I have started by looking at the examples and modifying them. However, I knew already a bit of Qt.

    A last note: fundamental knowledge of C++ is recommended for both.

  • Thanks, yes I do have the fundamental knowledge of C++ i.e if I read code I can understand what it says just that I am not that much familiar with these libraries and how to use them. Thanks for your reply.

  • Hi,

    I need to understand the structure of the qwt library for my project work as I need to reuse some of the components in the library. I do not wish to import the entire library in my project and also wish to tweak some of the components according to my convinience. I am new to Qt but not to C++, so I need help with the starting point to where I should start. How do I actually analyze the entire library in an efficient manner? I am currently facing difficulties to start. My seniors at work say the documentation of qwt is not that good and that is the reason we need to do it manually.
    Any help will be highly appreciated!


  • Please don't start a new topic on the same issue. I have merged your topics.

  • Thanks but can you please tell me how to run the examples supplied with qwt?

  • First build the library. In the qwtconfig.pri you can configure the build. Per default, the examples will build too.

    Or after building the lib, open the examples/examples.pro within the Qt Creator and build, debug or start the examples.

  • Thanks for the help, I have started off finally...
