Re: Possible impending Qt fork and copperspice opportunity

New things can be added, but nothing that would break an existing build. This point was mentioned in another thread on the Developers forum under API Stability. We have added a detailed reply in that thread. Sweeping changes need to be well thought out and implemented with a purpose. But sometimes ...

Re: API stability and proje philosphy question

The code I write and put into production in 2020 will compile against the current version in 2051. No classes or methods will have disappeared and the header files will have the same names in the same places. Lots of things can be added, but nothing ever taken away. The high level API will remain c...

Re: Qt QML or Quick or Quick Controls 2?

I was hoping they completely removed QML and JavaScript as that was one of the worst decisions Qt ever made. I'd like to clarify and expand on the answer we gave. Qt Quick and QML have not been brought into CopperSpice and we have no intention of porting them to CopperSpice verbatim. The truth is, ...

Re: ubuntu 20 incomplete dependency list

Btw, who set the ludicrous "images can only be 1 pixels high" rule on here? Screenshots really help all things. Sorry about that, we have had some issues of people posting way too many images. Screenshots add too much noise to the discussion thread in our experience. Posting links to an image galle...

Re: Please help me build the CopperSpice library!

7. In CMakeLists.txt I add this rows This is not the ideal way to adjust your build environment since these changes will be lost if you move to a new version of CopperSpice.

Re: Porting application from Qt

I am not a Qt expert like I am for the data management layer, so I have had to learn things as I go. One area that is giving me fits is paging using the fetchMore mechanism in Qt. If I query a large DB table (e.g. 10 million rows) and the result gives 200K rows (displayed in a QTreeView), I want to...

Re: Could you ship your own version of Qt Designer?

I think Qt Creator is not a hard requirement, isn't it? We have many developers who use Qt Creator to write their CopperSpice applications. However, you are correct that it is not a requirement. Any IDE can be used to develop a CopperSpice application although support for CMake is helpful. If you w...

Re: unexpected dependencies building copperspice 1.6.1 from source

The currently supported platforms can be found our CS Overview documentation: https://www.copperspice.com/docs/cs_overview/supported-platforms.html If you would like to build CopperSpice on a non-supported platform, there are two ways to make this happen. (1) Figure out what is needed and submit a p...
