View Full Version : QT4 console apps

Anyone here done this yet? GIven all the hoopla about TT making this "easy" I'd expect some tutorials and/or an example of a console only app.

Anyone have links/pointers? (preferably involving QObjects, Timers, and signal/slot ;) )

Just use QCoreApplication instead QApplication. All works fine.

you have to change the CONFIG var in your .pro file
CONFIG += console
CONFIG -= gui

Look at the doc, I'm unsure about the vars that has to hold "console" property.

I have used:

QT = core sql
in my .pro file. This gets core features (QtCore) and SQL features (QtSql).

Thanks everyone. I was trying to use QCoreApplication but had the order of exec compared to other code in the wrong place. ;) "Minor" refactoring and voila! I get to move on to other issues. ;)

Side note:
By including QApplication you get qApp(), but there is no comparable (that I have found) ability in QCoreApplication. Sure, I can include QApplication to get it but that seems a bit extreme and naturally requires the gui libraries. Or am I missing something?
