Over the past couple of months, I have been working losing sleep over getting Flash to work in QGraphicsView on all platforms. The good news is that flash now works in QGV on all platforms. Yes, that means that not only can QGV display Flash but can also rotate and transform flash when using QGraphicsWebView. IMPORTANT: Flash embedded […]
(A very late update on DevDays 2009 SFO. I am one lazy blogger)
In an unexpected twist of events, I ended up attending Qt Developer Days at SFO. I had just one week to get my visa, flight and hotel bookings in place, so I wasn’t too hopeful. Amazingly, I got my visa interview appointment in […]
A habit that I picked up from my job at Trolltech was to put all my experimental code in a directory called research. Each project gets its own sub-directory there. We used to also have a similarly named folder in p4 depot and it was totally unmanageable. I wonder what happened to all that code […]
When consulting for Hyves, we wanted a light-weight widget that displays html and animated gifs (for smileys) for the chat client and for tooltips. The option to use Qt/WebKit was out since we intended to create numerous instances of this widget (it consumed lots of memory) and the rendering was not as fast we would like. […]
There are situations where you don’t want text to be selected and images to be dragged in your QWebView (See my previous post). Qt does not provide support out of the box, but this is fairly straightforward to do. I wrote a quick hack to demonstrate, get it here.
Almost a year back, I was looking for a maintainer for kdocker. I had practically given up, when out of the blue John contacted me to be the new maintainer. What more, he had already ported it Qt4! That made handing over maintainership to him a no-brainer
Also, KDocker is now moved from sourceforge to launchpad. […]
Integrating the web into desktop apps is now incredibly easy thanks to Qt WebKit. Qt WebKit also allows us to embed any Qt widget inside the html. This feature makes it extremely tempting to develop full blown desktop applications using Qt WebKit – your interface is entirely designed using html/css (instead of .ui) and you […]
It’s been a year and a half since my good friend Roopesh and I started this company, ForwardBias Technologies. Starting our own business has been nothing short of exhilarating and fabulous. Estimating turnover, pricing, talking to customers, deciding company vision/direction is all very very thrilling!
Since inception, we have been focusing our energies on Qt consulting. […]
My tata wimax connection works well most of the time but it has a supremely annoying feature that to get connected, one is redirected to login in their login site (pretty much how the internet connection works in many hotels). If you are idle for sometime, it will auto logoff. Since my internet connection is […]
It’s been a long busy month. With the impending 2.0 release, I have been hacking away polishing up ODF list support for KWord.
Here’s a list of improvements coming up
Support for saving and loading ODF text:list. This was a lot of work. ODF lists are complex beasts. It was major help that […]
