Windows 8 Metro UI?
I was wondering if deploying Qt application on MS Store with Metro UI is currently possible.
I've googled and went through "http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt-5-on-Windows-8-and-Metro-UI":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt-5-on-Windows-8-and-Metro-UI but the document is more than 18 months old and I failed to find any further documentation on Metro UI.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
I would like to find out if it can be done and if so, how to do it.
Thank you in advance!
yes deploying a Qt application to the MS Store is possible. All this work is done in the WinRT (Windows Runtime) port of Qt. This port enables you to deploy it for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.
This is a short introduction for Qt5.3: "Qt5.3 Winrt Doc":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/winrt-support.html
In Qt5.3, the WinRT port is in a beta state. For Qt5.4, WinRT is fully supported (will be released in "November":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt-5.4-release).
You can create Apps with QML and QWidgets, currently not supported are UI Components in the "Metro UI" look-and-feel. This will probably land with Qt5.5 in the QtQuickControls-module....
