The QtPdWidgets Library

This is the QtPdWidgets library, a process-data aware widget library for Qt from the EtherLab project. It is based on PdCom 5 and QtPdCom 1. You can find the QtPdWidgets library on its GitLab Page or the EtherLab Homepage. There are binary packages available on Open Build Service.


The QtPdWidgets library is licensed under 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 -j$(nproc)
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(QtPdWidgets2 REQUIRED)
target_link_libraries(your_application PUBLIC

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

Have fun!
