Qt5 Mobile Windows Phone calling .NET stuff from Qt? (for push)
i need to estimate the work to port a qt mobile app that i have developed to Windows Phone. At the moment the app uses parse for push messages, but they do not support Windows Phone.
I do not know anything about windows development. I have found some examples how to register a device for push at the Microsoft services, but they are all in C#.
How do i actually port this app? Until now i used mxe (and therefor gcc) to port Qt Software for Windows, i assume to develop for Windows Mobile, i need Qt actually be installed on a Windows system with installed MS Visual C++. Is this correct?
Will the C# classes for push registration (e.g. Microsoft.Phone.Notification.HttpNotificationChannel) be simply available in C++ once Visual C is installed? Is it possible to simply mix them with my Qt Code?
How about gcc, any way to uses this classes via mxe cross compiling environment?
the Visual Studio compilers are the only option if you are targeting Windows Phone and/or Windows Store Apps.
Whether there are C++ bindings/headers for a C# library depends on the provider of that library. Even Microsoft is not 100% consistent. Some items are fully supported (In-App-Purchase), some partially (In-App-Advertising) and some are simply not exposed to C++ at all. You will need to check the documentation yourself unfortunately.
