[solved] GUI application: is it better to use Qt GUI ?



  • I want to make an application that has a GUI. Until now I always made a basic QApplication that would create a QWidget window with all the stuff in it.
    Is it ok to keep on making GUI applications this way or is it better to use "Qt GUI":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5.1/qtgui/qtgui-index.html ? I'm unsure of the benefits of using one versus the other, could someone please make it more clearer to me?

    Hi,

    It all depends on your application needs. If widgets do the jobs then go on, there's nothing wrong with it. Qt Widgets is just a module that contain the widget specific code and Qt Gui provides the building blocks for them (and if you want to make OpenGL only application / QtQuick application)



  • It makes more sense to me now, thank you for your help ;)
