    Default Is there a C++ alternative to QML/Qt Quick?

    Is there a C++ alternative to QML/Qt Quick's advanced graphical features?

    I want to use C++ for creating UI,I am not interested in Qml language.I have read about Qt Quick C++ module a bit,but I didn't understand it.Does it make it possible to use C++ to write Qt Quick UI?

    You have either the C++/widgets approach, or the Qt Quick approach to generating the UI. Depending on which "advanced graphic features" you mean, some of them are available in the widgets world.

    And have a look at QGraphicsView, it's the closest you can get to QtQuick.

    Thanks for your answers.

    Is it possible to use QT widgets for developing iOS applications?

    In theory yes. But such application would probably look really odd.

    In Qt5 one can also just use QtGui and develop the UI either using OpenGL or the Qt SceneGraph similar to what QtQuick2 does.

    Also, this is mostly orthogonal to whether one wants to code the object tree in C++ or in QML.
    QML is just a very nice way to describe trees of elements and dependencies of their properties. Independent of whether that elements are from QtQuick, a self defined UI component set or widgets.
