Android platform



  • Is there anybody else who uses Android-Lighthouse project? It will be interesting to listen what is already made (or in process) with using this fork.



  • Android allows only Java for applications. Even if Qt is ported to Android, will we be able to run Qt c++ applications on Android ? To my knowledge, the port is not fully complete yet.



  • Android also allows native C/C++ apps. It is of course not fully complete but is is usable for now for such developers who want to start develop now with something and deploy their apps when port will be more mature.



  • Are you refering to Android NDK ? I'am aware of Android NDK and to my knowledge, it is intended for developing libraries with native code, which in turn can be called from Java applications. But if Android do allow developing native applications, great. Do you have any links regarding this ?



  • ... and just for the record: it is a community driven port project. If you want to use it you can jump in and help out with the development.



  • Jayakrishnan.M, yeah, you now write Qt apps with small wrapper written in Java (wrapper is similar for all qt apps and is needed only to start and init qt app).

    Alexandra, yeah, I think BogDan will be happy if there will be more people working on Android-Lighthouse. For now as I know he is doing all the things and some people helps him with small patches (as for me I've sent him two of them, but not really big).



  • Thanks Denis, for the clarification. So we should be able to write Android apps in Qt. I had also seen a partial iPhone port. I know it is technically feasible, but does Apple allow Qt c++ apps on iPhone ? Any info regarding this ?

    As of now people are just working on it (enthusiasts) and not ready yet. Will Apple allow Qt, only time can tell. You know what happened to Flash on Apple right.

    AFAIK, Apple doesn't allow Qt C++ apps on iPhone. Currently the porting process in the beginning of the way (non officially, it's a community initiative). I do not think that Apple and Google will allow to use Qt framework (from a competing company) officially.



  • Google force Android developers to use its on framework and a single language. NDK is not substitute for creating full blown applications in c++. If it don't allow other frameworks or languages, how is it an open platform? It is iritating for me when someone boast about Android being an open platform.

  • i'm unable to load QML built videos in Andriod and IOS Apple......suggest me the solution if there is any idea



  • I am working on an Android VoIP solution. I have got some problem with the event handlers

    for the device buttons so I googled for codes and I have found one on a VoIP website (http://voip-sip-sdk.com/p_456-voip-android-integration-voip.html). In the

    code the event handler functions for handling buttons are listed. There is no difficulty to

    handle these buttons within the Adobe Flash code.

    1. private function handleActivate(event:Event):void
    2. {
    3.     NativeApplication.nativeApplication.systemIdleMode = 
      

    SystemIdleMode.KEEP_AWAKE;

    1. }
    2. private function handleDeactivate(event:Event):void
    3. {
    4.     NativeApplication.nativeApplication.exit();  
      
    5. }
    6. private function handleKeys(event:KeyboardEvent):void
    7. {
    8.     if(event.keyCode == Keyboard.BACK)  
      
    9.             NativeApplication.nativeApplication.exit();  
      
    10. }

    Could you provide me any C# codes similar to the mentioned one?

    Thanks,
    Niko



  • Apple allows Qt C++ apps on iPhone/iPad/iPod. There are apps in the App Store that use Qt 4.8 for Gui/Networking that Apple approved without any complications.
