Are we saying this is actual ps4 footage? I expect another watchdogs scandal.

This looks too good to be true.

Hide the tick box of QCheckbox
I was looking for a way to hide the tick box after it had been ticked. The checkbox was an item in a QListWidgetItem. I found that this did the job. item->setData(Qt::CheckStateRole, QVariant());

This may be a bit tricky with 4.8
 
Your Qt/C++ App in the Mac App Store

Apple wants you to use XCode to create apps for Mac, but you don't have to.  Recently I posted about the launch of my new app in the Mac App Store.

I got a lot of interest from folks about what you need to do to get a Qt app - written using portable C++ and not using XCode - into the App Store.

Some commentators have said it can't be done.  Well it can, and I've written a post with some guidelines on how to do it.

The most difficult part of getting Mac App Store to work IMHO is the security scoped bookmarks - which means including some Obj-C along the lines of my gist that I linked.  That did not get any easier or harder with the move from 4.x - 5.x.  Exactly what you  need there will depend on what kind of app you have.

I did use 4.8 quite a bit and the things in 5.2 are not a big step forward with respect to Mac.  In fact the Qt guys had to spend some time getting Mac things that already worked in 4.8 working again in 5.x with its big changes in rendering architecture and project layout.

The main differences I think are that you'll need to specify the paths for where your apps preferences, caches and so on live.  For that the easiest way is probably just to call the NSSearchPathsForDirectoriesInDomains() function ( https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/cocoa/reference/foundation/miscellaneous/foundation_functions/reference/reference.html#//apple_ref/c/func/NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains ).

That will return paths in the sandbox which are good to store the prefs and app data files in.  You could define a macro or function to return a QSettings object that uses the fileName form of the constructor: http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qsettings.html#QSettings-4

The fixes for macdeployqt will be slightly different - but basically you just need to hack the bundle structure that you wind up with after macdeployqt has done with it so that it matches the Apple spec.  That spec is here: https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/MacOSX/Conceptual/BPFrameworks/Concepts/FrameworkAnatomy.html

The main thing macdeployqt really does for you is the renaming / re-pathing of embedded info in the app so that it uses the frameworks in the bundle instead of what it was compiled against.  You can acheive that using otool but its a pain, and even a slightly broken macdeployqt will still save a lot of time.

If you go completely mad and decide to give this a try, I'll help where I can.  Good luck!  :-)

Hi, looking for a little guidance before I head off down exploring the possibilities of what I am trying to do. I would like to create a new widget that behaves like QCombobox but contains widgets, let's say QSlider for now. Could this be done by reimplementing QCombobox and overriding paint or am I way off and would need a different approach.

Good pizza, friendly staff and tasty house wine. Weird that bread is put on your table as though it were complimentary only to find you have been charged for it.

Reasonably priced, if your sitting in be prepared for the over powering smell from the toilets.

Don't know what the fuss is about. Got some takeaway, the two meals arrived within minutes, so microwaved came straight to mind. Ordered Chicken Cashew and Beef Schezwan. I think the chef needs to google what Beef Schezwan looks like because it looks nothing like what The Regent produces. It looked like grey runny sauce with soggy beef, not a chilli in sight. Will not be back, sorry.

Got seated plenty to occupy kids which is good. Food and service were not. Waitress had a bit of an attitude which makes you feel you are causing her some sort of a problem. Soup was out of a tin and there was a long black hair in the soup. Chef was not wearing a hat even though he had long black hair. BLT was very tight on the BLT. Sent it all back, paid for coffees and left. Will not return, especially since there are plenty of other places nearby which appear to offer a better experience.

I stayed for two nights. It was disgusting, the floor in the room was covered in black stains. (see my photo above) There was only one communal bathroom for the floor I was on and it was filled with cob webs. There seemed to be no one tending to the rooms or cleaning the bathroom. Don't stay at weekends as on Friday nights there is a club night till 2:30am so if you need a good nights sleep forget it. There is not a inclusive breakfast in the price for the room, which is seriously overpriced, and there is zero service. There are far better places to stay in the area. There are other places nearby that are nicer and cost less.
