Qt5.5 iTunes App rejected for QtWebEngineCore use of non-public APIs



  • My app use the QtWebEngine to display HTML user interface, and native code to interface with hardware via USB. Thanks to Qt's portability, it works fine on Windows and Mac. However App store rejected the app, stating use of non-public APIs.

    The following non-public APIs are included in your application:
    
    From framework '/System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/Versions/C/AppKit':
    
    _NSAppendToKillRing
    _NSDrawCarbonThemeBezel
    _NSDrawCarbonThemeListBox
    _NSInitializeKillRing
    _NSNewKillRingSequence
    _NSPrependToKillRing
    _NSSetKillRingToYankedState
    _NSYankFromKillRing
    
    From framework '/System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/ApplicationServices':
    
    CGSSetDenyWindowServerConnections
    CGSShutdownServerConnections
    

    All these function references comes from my.app\Contents\Frameworks\QtWebEngineCore.framework\Versions\5\QtWebEngineCore

    Anyone else had this problem? Any advice/help on how to proceed to get app approved?



  • No one else tried submitting a QtWebEngine based Mc OSX app to iTunes?

    Hi,

    Apple doesn't allow the use of custom web views be it QtWebKit or QtWebEngine. You should take a look at the QtWebView module which provides a wrapper around the native web views for iOS, Android and OS X.

    Hope it helps



  • Thank you SGaist!

    The reason for using QtWebEngine was to use HTML5/javascript code as GUI which then calls into C++ code to access USB to communicate with hardware. Does QtWebEngine support HTML5 and a c++/javascript bridge similar to QtWebEngine?

    QtWebChannel is the way to go for that kind of stuff with QtWebEngine
