PdQmlWidgets  2.0.0
PdQmlWidgets Documentation

General Information

This is the Pd QML Widgets library, a process-data aware widget library for Qt/QML from the EtherLab project. See https://gitlab.com/etherlab.org/pd-qml-widgets


The Pd QML Widgets library is licensed unter the terms and conditions of the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL), version 3 or (at your option) any later version.


Building and Installing


The build process is handled by cmake. To build and install, call:

mkdir build && cd build
cmake ..
make install

To change the installation path, call cmake with -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/my/custom/prefix. If PdCom5 and/or QtPdCom1 is installed at a non-standard location, use -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/pdcom/install/prefix. Multiple paths can be joined by semicolon (;). You can even use this option to point CMake to a build directory of PdCom5 and/or QtPdCom1, this adds the possibility to use a version of PdCom5 and/or QtPdCom1 which is not installed at all.

To import this library into your own application, add the following to your CMakeLists.txt:

find_package(PdQmlWidgets2 REQUIRED)
target_link_libraries(your_application PUBLIC

All dependencies are imported and linked automatically. The CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH argument works here, too.

Note regarding QML Files

The qml files are now compiled into PdQmlWidgets. To use the compiled-in version, call Pd::setQmlImportPathToResourceFile at the begin of your application. This loads the resource file and adds it to the QML import path. There is no need to add de_igh_pdQmlWidgets.qrc to your application anymore.

If you wish to use the qml files from the filesystem, set QML2_IMPORT_PATH to the corresponding directory and don't call Pd::setQmlImportPathToResourceFile.

Have fun!
