QT Virtual Keyboard questions?



  • Hi,

    I am using Qt Creator 3.3.1 (opensource) Based on Qt 5.4.1 (GCC 4.6.1, 32 bit). I have kits based on Qt version 4.8.3 for Embedded Linux due to my
    TI board.

    My question is that;

    1. Does QT has any virtual Keyboard widget?
    2. Which version of QT virtual Keyborad do I have to use it?
    3. Can I activate QT virtual Keyboard using my TI board fn button?
    4. Where I can get example usage of the QT virtual Keyboard widget?

    Kind Regards,

    For Qt 5 there is a virtual keyboard: http://doc.qt.io/QtVirtualKeyboard

    This is only available under the enterprise license.



  • @t3685 Yes, its true. I am using Qt Creator 3.3.1 (opensource) Based on Qt 5.4.1 (GCC 4.6.1, 32 bit).
    Is not applicable for us...

    but i like to mention that it is planned to release it also for OpenSource users in Qt 5.7, when the new license agreement get applied for all modules.

    Just announced, I must say I am very excited :)



  • "For this reason, we added LGPLv3 as a licensing option to Qt with Qt 5.4 back in 2014, and have published new Qt modules under this license."
    

    Well I am using QT 5.4 due to my embedded linux sdk.

    "So Qt 5.7 will not be available under LGPLv2.1 anymore. Instead, we will provide the different parts of Qt under the following licenses;
    
        Qt Essentials: All Qt Essentials will from now on be licensed under LGPLv3, GPLv2 and commercial license terms.
        [Qt Add-ons: All Add-ons that are currently available in the open source version of Qt](link url), will in the future be licensed under LGPLv3, GPLv2 and commercial license terms (Qt WebEngine in addition has a LGPLv2.1 requirement due to the 3rd party code from Chromium).Add-ons that were only available under commercial license terms in the past (e.g. Qt Charts and Qt Data Visualization) are now available under both GPLv3 and commercial license terms.
        Qt Tools and Applications: All tools (Qt Creator, moc, etc.) will in the future be available under commercial license terms and GPLv3. The GPL license comes with two exceptions that ensure that there are no license restrictions on generated code, and that bridging to 3rd party code is still possible."
    

    :) All Add-ons. What do you mean by "... are currently available in the open source version of Qt"?

    Where I can get these add-on? Are these add-ons compatible with my version of QT?

    Kind Regards
