Whats the best way? Forms or projects?
Hi, I am new in QT5 and I have a question
Which is better: Multiple forms linked to just one project or multiple projects with a small quantities of forms?
hi and welcome
It really depends on the project/task
There is nothing bad having many forms in a project.
A common structure for a desktop app is to have a qmainwindow and then
some forms used as dialogs.
If some of the files of a huge project is reused in other projects.
one might also make it a separate project with own forms as to keep it as easy to reuse module.
I am "converting" a project from Access to QT5 and this project have about 150 forms, what do you suggest?
In such case, I assume all forms belongs to same core concept so splitting it into
mutiple project would not really give any benefits.
So one master projects with all forms, is what I would suggest.
Maybe its possible to re-use some of the forms as Qt is more flexible
than the ACCESS version i have tried. (GUI wise)
So you might not end up with 150 again.
Can I ask about navigation of the current Access app?
Is it like a master window and you open dialogs over it or
does the master window have mutiple pages and
each "page" you open dialogs?
The master window have multiples pages and each page open dialogs
you should have a look at
it makes it easy to have "pages"
with different controls.
So that as center in a mainwindow and then dialogs
would most likely suit you well.
