Show animated progress inidicator while doing time consuming c++ stuff.

  • Hi,

    i am trying to realize an animated progesss indicator.

    The problem is that it should be displayed (and animated) while i call c++ stuff which takes some time.
    I really do not want to start using threads for it.
    Maybe there is an "easier" solution? Somethinh like overwrite cursor for desktop applications?

    How would you try to solve this?

    Have a nice day,

  • Hi
    Try this..

    QMovie *movie = new QMovie(":Animations/icons/yourAnimatedIcon.gif");
    QLabel *yourLabel = new QLabel(this);

    hope it helps

    I don't think so there's a direct way but you could emit a signal from QML, connect it to a C++ class and setCursor to Qt::BusyCursor or Qt::WaitCursor. QQuickItem also has setCursor();

    I know you told about not starting the thread. But starting the thread is elegant way it avoids lot of stuff. I have tried earlier and move to thread finally.
