thanks for replying back
and thank you,
i saw the example on the qt documentation about the address books, and i liked it but,
my program is some sort of school management
in the center of it there is tabs of different functionalities
inside those tabs i want my data which is a mysql data to get displayed to the user
like picture,first names,last names and so
what is the best thing i can do about this idea
thanks again <3
@SGaist and what u think sir,
creating a web site and getting it inside a web widget
whats the best path to use/follow
creating a web site
Well, there are many many possibilities/frameworks and this is out of Qt scope (even if you could use Qt to create a web page).
"and getting it inside a web widget" - do you mean you want to render a web page in your app? If so take a look at https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtwebengine-index.html
i give you the general approach and tell me what to do
i have created a full c++ console app
which is a school management console app
with c++ connector(with mysql)
then i get in with the qt to have the desktop app
but am getting a lot of difficulties in learning and implementing things inside the mainwindow and getting a good design as i want
so i decided maybe to create a website then implement it inside my app
what do you recommend
and thanx for replying,
and sorry for the long text
Well, user management systems are often coupled with web technologies.
Is it your case ?
As for getting data into widget, QDataWidgetMapper comes to mind.
@SGaist and is it possible to put pictures inside QDataWidgetMapper ?
QDataWidgetMapper does the link between widgets and database fields.
How are you storing images in that database ?
@SGaist its a mysql server with a database
i am using c++ connector
and reading a pic image binary and store it inside the database in a longblob or blob var type
Is the format of the picture fixed ?
sorry for late xD 600 second cooldown
@SGaist u mean by fixed is that a single format ? like png or jpg ?
if so no it wwill be just one format
and its controlable by the user
*its a desktop app that is controlable by just one user so the format type is not an issue
@SGaist you think qtableview is the best way to show the data ? or there is other better way to do it
if not thank you so much
that was very helpful <3
It depends on how you want your user to access the data.
i want something like this picture :
Student Management System
with some pics on each student
This looks like a classic web application.
While you can do the front end with Qt, I think you should first rethink your backend architecture to provide all the services needed to manage such an application.
thank you so much <3
