Re: setTabTextColor() no longer working

I tested your example code and the setTabTextColor() call did change the color of the tab text as expected. Since your code has dependencies on other parts of your program, I used our journal entry 19 and replaced the connect() at the end of the MainWindow constructor with the following: connect(pb_...

Re: Migration from MFC to CopperSpice

My company did attempt a hybrid MFC - Copperspice application similar to what I think is described in the videos you linked. ... In the end we split the application in parts, where certain workflows where handed off to a separate process. That worked well for us and allowed us to migrate gradually,...

Re: Moving to C++20

Thank you for contributing to this conversation and explaining your point of view. We really do appreciate user input. We are going to chat with a few other C++ committee members before making a decision about when to implement the transition to a newer version of C++.

Re: Moving to C++20

Just looking at GCC, they started adding C++20 features back in version 8 and more was added with each release. The majority of features are present in GCC 12, except for a few things related to modules. Support for C++23 started to appear in GCC 9 with the majority appearing by GCC 13. (1) As of C+...

Re: Reddit post Qt license

While the Free Software Foundation recommends using the latest version LGPL v3 I thought that LGPL v2.1 would be compatible with CopperSpice. Yes, they do usually recommend LGPL 3 but the FSF is looking to address other concerns. In the real world, true open source developers prefer LGPL 2.1 when i...

I took some time to read your “Debian 12 guide” and I would strongly suggest changing several items. Documentation can be messy and some of what you said could be misunderstood by new developers. (1) Even though Ubuntu is based on Debian, you simply can not assume that a Ubuntu program will work on ...

Re: MySQL plugin question

Yes, building this plugin has been tested on several Unix systems and it does build as expected. The FindMySQL.cmake in our cmake directory will be invoked and then PkgConfig will be used by CMake to search for MySQL. We can see by your output that “mysql/mysql.h” was found, which is a good start. H...

Re: Exception Related to String Encoding?

If I look on the Microsoft site, I see the latest VS 2019 Professional is 16.11 I cannot find any reference to 19.29.30147 Perhaps I am looking in the wrong place? In our CI, we use VS 2019 version 16.11.23. If you run cl.exe you will see the actual version of the compiler, which is where you will ...
