Trees, tree models and treeviews in Qt

The first part in my series on writing applications with C++ using Qt and boost:

Trees, tree models and treeviews in Qt

by Jens Weller

From the article:

On Tuesday I've announced this new series, this is the first installment showing the progress. The first thing I did when I started to work on my new application, was to implement a generic tree class, that then is exposed through not so generic tree model to Qt. The QTreeView then simply displays the data in the tree. My goals are, that the class containing the tree it self, is independent from Qt. Yet as its used in Qt, there are a few design decisions which reflect the needs of the Qt Model View system...

Building Applications with Qt and boost

I'm starting a series on my blog and youtube channel, about building an application in C++:

Building Applications with Qt and boost

by Jens Weller

From the article:

This is the start of a series of posts, in which I'll try to document my weekly work on a new application, build with Qt and boost. This first post is rather short, but I'd quickly try to give you an overview, why I use both Qt and boost in the same application. Regarding Qt, I wrote an introduction a two years ago, also for boost, there is an excellent website/tutorial about boost by Boris Schäling (buy his book! wink). This series is not meant as a general introduction, yet I try to show you how and what I use of Qt and boost.

Refactoring my Qt database code

HTTP and HTTPS in Qt

How to handle HTTP and HTTPs requests in Qt

HTTP and HTTPs in Qt

by Jens Weller

From the article:

Last week I started to work on an old project again: My own feed reader. I found the code 2 weeks a go on an old USB Stick, and decided to refactor it into a useful state. This involved dealing with HTTP via QNetworkAccessManager.

Qt & JSON

Recently I could play around with Qt5 JSON API:

Qt & JSON

by Jens Weller

From the Article:

With Qt5 there is a new API for reading and writing JSON files in Qt. In the last days I had the chance to play around with this API, as I implemented importing and exporting different data sets from and to JSON.

Writing a simple bar graph widget in Qt

Recently I had to implement a simple version of a bar graph widget in Qt:

Writing a bar graph widget in Qt

by Jens Weller

From the Article:

Today I had a little fun with Qt and wrote a widget for displaying a bar graph. I have two different situations where I need the bar graph in my back end: displaying the votes a single talk got, and displaying one big bar graph of all the talks.
