Discussion and the Q&A
Q: How to pass parameters to new pages in the stack?
Q: How to call C++ code from QML?
Q: How can I access WebViews from QML and how can I send data back from WebViews?
A: Check out these links:
Q: How can we manage the alignements?
A: Start from these links:
- https://sailfishos.org/develop-firstapp-code.html (start reading at contentHeight: childrenRect.height )
Q: How we can access map view?
A: Check out the webview documentation here: http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qml-webview.html . With that you can embed online maps.
Q: How to deploy on a Windows machine?
A: First follow the instructions at http://youtu.be/fH9aAn5rGA8 If you are using your own laptop, or a Windows machine, you need to manually configure your USB ethernet adapter IP to 192.168.2.15 and subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 before you can connect successfully.
Q: Google maps on Qt platform?
After logging in with your Google account, click “Source” and then click “Browse” to get the source code
Q: How can I access WebView content in the QT 5.1 platform?
A: Check out these links:
- Also, here's a SailfishOS project example that implements the example from the previous forum: qtwebkit-test.tar.gz
What are recommended skills/requirements for code camp ?
Programming experience(I hope you all have some…if not..then you'll have one during this code camp) and of course learning INTEREST is the most.
Can I prepare to Code Camp ?
Yes. During code camp week we will brainstorm a software idea, design it and code it. Getting good ideas might sometimes be hard and thinking about different ideas before code camp makes it faster to get into coding part.
I have an exam in Code Camp week ?
You are free to go exam, but code camp in intensive course and idea is to focus coding during the well, so it is recommended you prepare to exam before the code camp week.
Grading 1-5 from
- Idea and presentation of the Idea in wiki: 25%
- Coding of the implementation: 25%
- Presentation: 10%
- Code Camp Spirit: 20%
- Code camp report 20%
If you have questions about code camp send email to Antti Knutas (firstname.lastname@example.org).
