VS 2015 - No Webkit widget

  • Hello every one,

    I am new to Qt forums but have a small experience with Qt. I've downloaded Qt 5.6.0 for Windows 64-bit (VS 2015, 836 MB) and configured it on VS 2015 IDE using Qt Addon, but while editing the ui with qt creator I can't find the webkit widget, is there any way to add it?

    Hi, welcome to the forum.

    The webkit module was deprecated in 5.5 and removed in 5.6. You can still download it and compile separately, but you should consider moving your code to QtWebEngine if possible, especially if you're starting a new project.

  • @Chris-Kawa Thank you very much for your reply!
    Any idea where to get and how can I add it to my VS 2015 project?

    Thanks again!

    You can download the soure code from the official git repository. Compile it and you should be good to go. I don't think you can add it to the VS add-in, but you can still add it as any other library in VS - by setting the appropriate include and lib paths in the project settings.
    I'll just repeat that the module is no longer supported. It won't get any updates or security fixes, which is kinda important when using web technologies. It's gonna be dropped entirely soon (i.e. including the sources). Think twice before using it.

  • @Chris-Kawa Alright. Thank you very much for the clarification. I really appreciate it!
