Using QtCharts in version 5.5.1
As a very new member of Qt family, I'm getting into the Qt world step by step :) My question for you is,
I'm trying to make widgets for a platform that is developed in Qt framework. The platform I'm trying to create widgets for has support for Qt widgets but only for the 5.5.1 msvc 2013 64 bit compiler.
I want to create a widget using "QtCharts" library which is available in version 5.8.
I looked for a way to get the library from github and statically build it and use it in version 5.5.1 but could not succeeded.
Also tried to include the library in .pro file; even the QtCharts headers and libs is reached from the source code, I cannot use QtCharts instances on the platform that I'm creating widgets for. /its basically not loaded/
Can you please give me a little help about what do I need to look for?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
First thing, the official code repositories can be found at https://code.qt.io, GitHub is just a mirror.
You should build and install the module like you would any other Qt module. Something like.:
mkdir build_qtcharts pushd build_qtcharts /path/to/Qt5.5.1/bin/qmake /path/to/QtCharts make make install popd
And then in your .pro file:
QT += charts
