Rocs Update – beter use of Qt Property System. May 22, 2009

Posted by tumaix in planetkde-tomazcanabrava.

Since the beginning I was searching for a way to use custom-variables on Rocs,
so I opted for QtProperties in the first week of code. the problem was I was trying to use dynamic properties for everything,
and did a small editable table/view with the properties and it’s values, it was not good, not good at all,
confusing, and a required property name could be changed ( I know that I could modify the behavior, and I did, but I didn’t liked the outcome).

pretty boring, isn’t it?

So , I did a bit of research, changed every dynamic property that I using internally to static properties ( should have done this a long time ago)
and created a better UI for accessing it’s contents.


little better =)
please, send me your thoughts.

Um. That’s a little terse, so I guess I should add that I recognize that not everyone knows English as a first language, and I’m perfectly happy with that. My intention here is not to accuse you of error, but to point out the correct form…

Ah, thanks for the point, the language of the queen is not my mother tongue, so sometimes, but rarely, but sometimes, I got confused on what a world should be spelled. ( and I forgot to use the dictionary, as usual ).
I’m correcting the text in no time, and thanks for the tip =)

Come on, vertical tabs are fine. I like them. They take only little space and you always know where you could navigate to. Too bad that they are removing them from amarok…
