Qt for WinCE 6



  • Hi all,

    I'm considering to use Qt for WinCE 6 for an application on a WinCE 6 Pro device. I've searched a lot about some features of the application, but I'm not really sure that I can do with Qt.

    • Device has a barcode scanner. It can be called from Qt code? Needs .dll?
    • Device must be unique-identified. I know the GetDeviceUniqueID method. It can be called from Qt code?
    • The user must login to the application with Active Directory (LDAP). It is a problem?

    Thank you,
    SBC



  • There is no barcode scanner support in Qt, but if it there is a .dll/.lib/.h you can use for reading it, you can easily hook up that with Qt.

    Calling GetDeviceUniqueID will work fine from Qt - it's just C++, no "magic" stuff.

    LDAP might be a problem, no out-of-the-box solution in Qt for that. But then again, I'm sure there are lots of people who have used LDAP and Qt already, google it.



  • Note that Qt is just plain C++. You can call external libraries without problem.
    The feature you ask here are typically provided by libraries of the platform, and just linked with your Qt applications.



  • Agreed with this, you could use the dll to achieve the goals.
