Qt is a widely used C++ framework. It provides the libraries for many usecases. There is also an IDE available which is called Qt Creator. This page contains information on how these can be used with CodePorting.Native Cs2Cpp.
Qt data types conversion
Qt libraries provide many general use data types (e. g. strings, collections, I/O primitives and so on). They also contain many graphical types (colors, brushes, pens and so on).
CodePorting.Native Cs2Cpp also provides types for such applications. However, these types follow .Net API in order for the ported code to work properly. Qt is not used by CodePorting.Native, and it is not required to use Qt in order to use CodePorting.Native Cs2Cpp. On the other hand, CodePorting.Native Cs2Cpp types are not compatible with their Qt analogs.
Those customers who use both CodePorting.Native and Qt, may use helper functions available here. Please click on below links for more information:
There are two major concepts present here: converting and wrapping.
Converting means taking an existing value and creating a value of a different type which is completely independent from it, but contains full equivalent of the data. This works for lightweight values like strings, colors, dates and so on.
Wrapping means creating an object which behaves as an instance of a target type, but actually proxies the calls into source type object it was created for. This works for heavy entities like buffers and files where copying would cause a performance penalty or alter the logic.
The below code demonstrates some typical usage of helper functions.
System::Stringstring1=u"abc";// CodePorting.Native Cs2Cpp string
QStringstring2=Aspose::QtHelpers::Convert(string1);// Qt string
System::Stringstring3=Aspose::QtHelpers::Convert(string2);// Back to CodePorting.Native Cs2Cpp string
QFilefile("QtCoreHelpers.WrapQFile.txt");// Qt file
System::SharedPtr<System::IO::Stream>stream=Aspose::QtHelpers::Wrap(file);// Now this stream can be used to read from Qt file in ported code.
Qt Creator debugging helpers
When working with CodePorting.Native Cs2Cpp types in Qt Creator environment, it is possible to use debugging helpers to inspect the values of the variables. asposetypes.py file contains such helpers. Please consult the readme file for the information on how to install and use these. For more information, including the sample project, please refer to this directory in our GitHub.
