    Default Multiple applications in same window

    Hi,

    I want to have Multiple application in the same window
    1.Radio
    2.Media Player
    3.Terminal Mode

    By clicking buttons(or any thing else like tab ) it should launch the application on the main window.
    How it can be achieved.

    I have designed the above 3 application separately.
    Now I want to have one integrated app.

    Regards
    Hitesh Sharma

    Which platform are we talking about?

    You can use XEmbed then.

    If you have written the three sub-programs yourself then it seems to be a reasonably trivial exercise to produce a library version of each and build the combined application from those.

    Point is not about building a combined application but building a single UI for all the three different applications....how can i combine the three application UI into a single UI

    I'm sure there is.

    We will call QWidget::winId().

    Player is working fine as an independent project.
    I am not able to add it into the TAB

    I fail to see the difference except in terms of complexity, portability and fragility. Since you have the source of the three applications there is more than one option, but you seem fixated on one way to do it.

    Here is another option. Split each of the three applications into two parts:
    • A dynamically loadable library containing the application logic and the application's main window class.
    • A trivial shell application, linked to the library above, that creates an instance of the main window class and shows it.

    You still have three separate runnable programs with the same functionality, but you have bought some capability.

    Then your combined application becomes a simple shell that is linked to all three application libraries, instantiates the main widget of each, and puts them into a layout in its own main window. You might have to deal with a few name collisions with name spaces.

    There are some limitations of this approach but I'm not convinced they are bigger than the XEmbed ones.

    Resolved

    I am using Stack Layout now.
