How to check if the application is being loaded into a phone screen or a tablet screen?
I am building a unified display UI, where I have to check if the device which is using the app is a phone (small display), or a tablet (bigger display).
If its a phone, it will hide some content (as there is not enough space), while if its a tablet it will show the whole content.
How can I check this?
Lets say, in both versions the app will be load in Portrait Mode.
What platform are you targeting ? iOS ? Android ?
Use the QScreen, check the physical dimension (not the pixel resolution) of the screen and determine the break point where you consider a device a tablet or a phone.
Take into account that there is no such real difference between a tablet and a phone.
So, if you suppose that a tablet is something that has more than 7'' display, then calculate the screen dimension from QScreen and if it's above 7'' you display the tablet UI, otherwise the phone UI.

Hi SGaist, I am making a cross-platform application that targets anything with a touch screen in the Operating Room. However I am starting with a phone/tablet prototype, and it targets both platforms.
Gianluca, thank you for your suggestion. Sounds great! I will totally try that.
Thank you again!
you can also see this blog post we recently published about supporting multiple screens with Qt:
We added a property "tablet":http://v-play.net/doc/vplay-gamewindowapplicationwindow/#tablet-prop, which sounds like it is doing what you are looking for..
