Qt Creator

So the installation went fine and we can start the development tool that is called Qt Creator. Looks like this is version 2.3. 

Qt_Creator_1

Let’s first check that we have a functional installation by creating a simple test application. By clicking the “Create Project” button I will get a window that has a list of different application templates. Let’s select a Qt Quick Project > Qt Quick Application.

Qt_Creator_2

Next I need to specify the project name and a folder where to put the project. Let’s create TestApp1 project under U:\Work\QtCreator\TestApps.

Qt_Creator_3

Next let’s select the application type (Meego/Harmattan).

Qt_Creator_4

As for the target let’s select the Qt Simulator so we don’t need to connect the N9, yet.

Qt_Creator_5

Finally a list of files is displayed. Looks like we will get quite a bunch of different kinds of files. Some QML files for the user interface I guess and then some .cpp and .h files for the application itself. I think the main.cpp file contains the main function.

Qt_Creator_6

Let’s click finish to load the files. The Project pane shows the project structure. The main QML file (main.qml) is loaded into the editor. It evidently defines the user interface for the application within one component called a PageStackWindow. The PageStackWindow seems to be composed of a MainPage component that is described in the MainPage.qml file.

Qt_Creator_7

In the next step we will try to build and run this test application.
