For software developers, it's the holy grail: write one state-of-the-art graphical application that runs on Linux, UNIX, and Windows. Qt 2 Programming for Linux and Windows 2000 shows experienced C++ programmers how to do just that, using the powerful new Qt 2.x toolkits -- the same tools used to build the #1 Linux graphical user interface, KDE. Start by understanding what you can do with Qt 2.x Free Edition and what requires TrollTech's Qt Professional License; and getting comfortable with the Qt Toolkit and its online documentation. Understand the key concepts that drive Qt development, starting with Qt's signal/slot mechanism, which provides an excellent framework for component-based development. Review Qt 2.x's visual objects, convenience objects, and extensions. Master powerful professional development techniques, including portability tradeoffs, interfacing with Microsoft APIs, working with DDE servers and COM/DCOM, internationalization; object reuse, and incorporating Qt in Rapid Application Development processes. There's even a full chapter on the key issues associated with Qt 2.x development for Windows 2000. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the complete Qt 2.2
Free Edition, new Qt toolkit extensions, sample code, and more.
