[SOLVED]Preferences dialog



  • As you can see below VLC has fabulous preferences dialog which offers simple and professional way to explore application preferences (specially search feature which is similar to eclipse feature) so I'm wondering:

    Is there any Qt widget/component offers an advanced preferences dialog similar to VLC (or eclipse :) )?

    PS
    By the way, I was using eclipse/RCP which offers by default advanced preferences library.



  • Of course it was ... take a look at youtube or this forum docs

  • This is fake link, it not related to my question!



  • Isn't the GUI of VLC made with Qt? Just have a look at the sources ;-)

    http://git.videolan.org/?p=vlc.git;a=blob;f=modules/gui/qt4/dialogs/preferences.cpp

    Note, however, that Qt can use various styles. I think your screenshot shows the native KDE style.
    On other platform, it will look a bit different...



  • Sorry the link was not fake, it helps you out to a simple gui example.
    As MuldeR said, you can also download the source of VLC because is made on Qt.

    If you want to use native multimedia you can use also Phonon that is also build on Qt.

    Cheers,
    Kind Regards

    I know that VLC uses Qt and I didn't mention that VLC has own GUI!!!

    My question is specific, Is there any Qt widget/component offers an advanced preferences dialog similar to VLC (or eclipse :) )?

    I can build similar preferences dialog from scratch but I'm looking for already built component which may decrease developing time and efforts

    Any way, I found "Qtilities":http://jpnaude.github.io/Qtilities/page_widget_set.html#configuration_widget which is a Qt library may fits my requirement but I didn't test it and I'm still looking for a suitable one easy to use (I found Qtilities somehow complicated).



  • I don't think there is a single "all in one" Qt Widget that can do this.

    However pulling together a dialog like that in Qt Designer should be straight forward. It's probably just a QStackedWidget and a few Buttons for switching the pages. That's not rocket science ;-)

    Or, if VLC already contains a dialog that looks exactly like what you want, why not just adapt their code?

    If you want to consider it from GUI view point it will not a rocket science but in case you want to use it as a dynamic practical component I can confirm to you that it's not easy as you imagine.

    bq. Or, if VLC already contains a dialog that looks exactly like what you want, why not just adapt their code?

    Hmm adapting VLC or any project code has some restrictions depending on the structure of that project and its license so that choice is more complicated than creating a new Qt component from the scratch but if I find the suitable component (until now I didn't find better than "Qtilities":http://jpnaude.github.io/Qtilities/page_widget_set.html#configuration_widget) it definitely solve the whole issue.

    PS
    I didn't post this thread until finished from browsing qt-apps.org and sf.net but I didn't finish from google yet and this forum too :)



  • Even the window, dialog box, menus you show up on that picture change from desktop environment. What u shown is used by KDE, if you go to Gnome , Unity, XFCE, etccc will have different looking.

    But regard to main question, i don't know any framework out of the box with all pre-designed widgets, but who know if someone knows this ...

    Good luck
    Kind Regards
