    Irrlicht is already cross-platform C++.

    Compile Irrlicht and link it to your application. This is only related to Qt if you use qmake to build your project (See Declaring Other Libraries), otherwise it is between you and your C++ compiler.

    Does it need to be compile into lib to be cross platform

    To use this, instead of declaring the Irrlicht device using its constructor, use IrrlichtWidget's getIrrlichtDevice() method. For Irrlicht's main loop, don't create a while loop but use IrrlichtWidget's inIrrlichtMainLoop signal, which is emitted every time it's in the Irrlicht main loop. Here is an example:

    Qt Code:
    1. IrrlichtWidget *myWidget = new IrrlichtWidget;
    2. QObject::connect(myWidget, &IrrlichtWidget::inIrrlichtMainLoop, [myWidget](){
    3. myWidget->getIrrlichtDevice()->getVideoDriver()->beginScene(true, true, irr::video::SColor(255, 255, 255, 255));
    4. myWidget->getIrrlichtDevice()->getSceneManager()->drawAll();
    5. myWidget->getIrrlichtDevice()->getVideoDriver()->endScene();
    6. });
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    You don't need to call the device's run() method since it's called automatically.

    To use Irrlicht in Qt Creator, you will have to add these two lines to the .pro file:

    Qt Code:
    1. INCLUDEPATH += "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\\Libraries\\irrlicht-1.8.4\\include"
    2. LIBS += -L"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\\Libraries\\irrlicht-1.8.4\\lib\\Win32-visualstudio" -lIrrlicht
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Replace C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\\Libraries\\irrlicht-1.8.4 with the path in which you installed Irrlicht.

    Hi,
    thank you a lot Donald Duck, that works very well, it is a good start point for my project.
    However I don't understand the lines :
    Qt Code:
    1. QObject::connect(myWidget, &IrrlichtWidget::inIrrlichtMainLoop, [myWidget](){
    2. myWidget->getIrrlichtDevice()->getVideoDriver()->beginScene(true, true, irr::video::SColor(255, 255, 255, 255));
    3. myWidget->getIrrlichtDevice()->getSceneManager()->drawAll();
    4. myWidget->getIrrlichtDevice()->getVideoDriver()->endScene();
    5. });
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    I have never seen the "[]" bracket around a member, and I don't see the SLOT() like in "send, SIGNAL(), receiver, SLOT()" typical connection.

    Anyone could explain me the " [myWidget](){...}"?

    Go look up "C++ lambda expression" in your C++ book or online. And read the Qt 5 documentation for QObject::connect().
