Qt RemoteObjects Remote UI via WebGL



  • Hi,

    I am currently working a project where we should build a Qt app for a touchscreen device. But I would like to have the ability for concurrent remote control of this device via a web browser and I was thinking of using WebGL to achieve this. I read this post below on Qt blog and I ended up that I need to run two process(one local and one for remote UI).

    https://www.qt.io/blog/2018/06/12/remote-uis-webgl-webassembly

    As the article suggested, I started reading on Qt RemoteObjects library and how I can share the data between two processes. But I am a little bit confused because I should define on the .rep file all the data that I would like to be shared between processes ? For example If I have on my UI interface 10 buttons and each of them make an action and etc, then I have to define on .rep all the data needed for sharing in order to handle button from both ways (local or remote) ?

    Appreciate any guidance or help on this topic and any practical Qt RemoteObjects example is welcome too.

    Thanks.



  • Hi again,

    Any ideas or suggestions from anyone who used Qt RemoteObjects in the past ?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    That's a lesser used module so you may have better chances asking on the interest mailing list. You'll find there QtRemoteObjects developers/maintainers.



  • Hi @SGaist ,

    Tried to reach Qt WebGL plugin and Qt RemoteObjects developers/maintainers but I got a reply from the interest mailing list that "You are not allowed to post to this mailing list".

    Do you know how I will get in contact with them since the mailing list is rejecting me? Since I am only using the Qt framework should I subscribe on the list or not ?

    Thanks.

    Did you subscribe to the mailing list before sending something to it ?



  • Hi @SGaist ,

    No I didn't subscribe on the list, now I got it how it works...this is the reason why I am rejected.

    Appreciate your help!

    Thanks.
