Evaluating Qt for Mobile + 3rd party library integration question

  • Hi... I'm trying to determine if we can migrate an existing application to Qt for iOS and Android. I think it's going to work for we're evaluating a barcode scanning library which has support for iOS and Android natively (

    I was just wondering if it would be possible to integrate this library into the application and what the process might be roughly?

    Happy to read any documentation on the subject if someone could point me to it.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    For iOS you would essentially write an Objective-C++ wrapper to interface the library. You can find such code in Qt itself or the QtMacExtras module.

    As for Android you can also integrate java libraries see this and the QtAndroidExtras module for examples on how to do that.

    Hope it helps
