How to add Qt widget (Template = app)
peztopazto last edited by
Hey, I have been going through the qt widgets on http://qt-apps.org/ and quite a few of them seem interesting. Unfortunately I have been unable to find a guide on how to use them. The closest thing I have found is the "Custom Widget Plugin Example" tutorial, which is still quite a bit different from my goal.
I simply want to use the downloaded widgets, is there any documentation on how to do this? I feel like a moron for asking such a simple question but I honestly cannot find the answer.

Depending on how the widgets are packaged, you may have to either:
- Include the source in your project or
- Link to the widget lib in your project (and include the relevant headers) or
- Add it as a plugin for QtCreator.
I've written a very basic chart widget if you want an example of how to build a library and include it in your application:
Hope that helps.
