[Help to setup a user interface]

  • Hi guys :)

    I'm a newbie to Qt creator, so if anyone has the time to help me, I will be more than happy :)
    I know the basic of c++

    What I am trying to get developed is a user interface for a project at my university.

    The project deals with a kind of prevention against burglary, which is done by different light units around in one's home.
    These light units are controlled with a X10 transmitter and receiver, who is talking to a STK500 board. The entire system can be controlled from a user interface. Where on the front must be a 4 digit code that must be entered to access the menu.

    I imagine the interface to function on a touch screen :)

    Hope someone will help me get started :)

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    For that front end input it depends on how you would like to provide the digit code input.

    Do you want to have a numeric keypad ? Use a standard keyboard ?

    What will be your target OS to control that system ?

  • @SGaist Hi SGaist,

    I imagine the 4 digit code, should be like most mobilephones, where u have from 1 - 9 buttons:

    1 2 3
    4 5 6
    7 8 9

    and when u hit the last of the 4 digit it will slide to menu. If u hit the code wrong it should do nothing.

    I think the OS should be android to begin with but not sure. U have any suggestens ?

    If you want to do it widget style you might be interested by this

    Otherwise, are you going to use QML ?
